Science tour

If you are interested in science and scenery, this is a good place to visit. It is interesting to learn about earthquakes and its impact in the island.

By far, that was one of the best hikes we did in Philippines. It is very physically demanding but doable. It took as 6,5h round trip but we had very fast pace. Guide cost around 1200 for pack of 2. Couple of advices though if you want to make it more enjoyable: 1. Check weather the day before. It rained... More

We climbed with our dog Batman. We started near Arden hot spring and climb the pretty steep way up. When hitting half-way I was pretty confident we could make it but realising that the rest was really steep and you have to pull yourself up on rocks and holding on to plants not to fall backwards. The last 45 minutes... More

This is one of the mountains found on the island. The trail leading up is quite steep and would be best if you climb early in the day (unlike when we did when it was close to lunch time) after baking in the hot noon sun, partially up some hills, we decided to turn back and head to the next...

Don't be put off by the early start. Contact this guide. [Tyson 0906 6741429]. He has been doing this job 25+ years. Tyson speaks superb English and he is a great character. He will go at your pace whether you want plenty of stops/water breaks or if you want to 'just plow thru' to the summit. His son may also... More

You need to have some energy to make this hike. It is not a simple one. The journey is filled with trees and rocks so be careful. It is giving the best view of camiguin if you go to the top. I want to go more but not as easy as when I was younger. I recommend this one.

We visit Camiguin for a climb in Mt. Hibok Hibok. We started the trek south and camped in the crater near the lake on the first night then continued trekking on the next day down to the hot spring. Since we came for this climb, our group was prepared for a challenging hike with decent trekking attire. On the camp... More

We totally underestimated this hike. It was very hard hiking up: the humitidy, the route, the mosquitos and the length. The trail is straight up the mountains for hours. You really need to be better trained than us! It took us 9 hours to get up and down. Apparently you cannot do this hike without a guide. We had a... More

I wonder why no one here ever mentioned that the climb was quite physically challenging. I'm not one to hide the struggle. If you plan on going up the volcano, you have to at least be physically fit as it can be truly draining. It's no joke. I'm 5'4" at 115 lbs and I certainly wished I had prepared for... More
