“Not really a challenge, but view was spectacular!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I don't get why many were daunted with the 724 steps that led up to the peak of Mt. Tapyas. It wasn't even a trail; it was a well-ordered and well-constructed set of concrete stairs. And there were seats and sheds to rest on when you're tired. But then again, I grew up - and live in - the highlands, so climbing mountains and walking up more challenging trails is nothing new.

The giant steel cross was nothing special, but it's the view that would take your breath away. Even on the way up, you see the water, the islands, and the town down below. At the top, you get a 360-degree view of the whole place. I felt... humbled. And inspired,

“Capture Coron”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

The ascent to Mt. Tapyas was challenging but the view of Coron that awaited at the top proved to be worth all the stress. On Mt. Tapyas, explorers can contemplate and breathe in all the beauty Palawan can offer and feel blessed for the ultimate adventure experience.

“700+ steps”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My friend and I did the hike up without stopping and literally it was breath taking. The view was nice on the early evening that we went up. It is a good thing that we had a guide with us because there was a power failure again and going down was quite harder because of the darkness.
