Mt Tapyas, Coron

4.5
A dramatic backdrop to a small coastal town, Mt Tapyas serves as a popular viewpoint and offers sweeping panoramas over the surrounding islands. Follow the signs from town and begin the trek up the marked pathways, which feature paved stairways and trails. Climb the approximately 700 steps to the top and you'll find the mountain's summit accented by a giant metal cross. From there, you' can enjoy unobstructed views of the island, the bay, and the rugged coastline, dense with jungle vegetation.

  • It's definitely worth it! A good perspiration to get to the top but the view is well worth the detour! Very easy to get to because at the foot of downtown Coron, to do!

  • It is worth climbing to watch the sunset over the entire bay. However, carry water, because the climb becomes long and despite being darkening, it is very hot. Until the beginning of the steps, you can climb by motorbike.

  • Went hiking at around 5:30 AM. We opted to take the sunrise rather than the usual sunset in Tapyas.Though both period are equally beautiful.Its about 700 steps to the top but there are resting areas.Locals normally jog to and from the mountain without a fuss.If you are not into so much physical activity and planning to hike it, please take precautionary measures.It does not have a mini store at the top so better bring your own water jug and of course your camera.
  • Steep climb but once you conquered this, you'll feel like a champion, looking over Coron and trying to grasp the beauty of life. The view is awesome, especially around sunset. You'll share the view with a hundred other people, but the platform is big enough to guarantee a proper spot. Water is sold on the stairs but not at the top, so plan accordingly.
