We planned to hike Mt. Salakot but we didn't get the info we wanted before we arrived in Puerto Princesa. During our 4-day stay, we bumped into someone who knows about the outdoors of Palawan. As of writing, apparently, you need to secure a permit to climb Mt. Salakot. And the permit processing takes 4-5 days. For the Salakot waterfalls,... More
