Trip Planner: Asia / Philippines / Mimaropa / Palawan Province / Busuanga Island / Coron / Mt Tapyas
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.

Mt Tapyas Reviews
Made the climb to the top of Mt. Tapyas. Not sure if the stair count is correct but there are a lot of them. If you make the climb in the morning be sure to bring water and a hat as the sun is... more »
Just so you know, this is not an easy climb. There are a lot of stairs, so bring water. that being said, the view from the top is worth it. Not just looking out to see the sunset, but the rest of..... more »
Nice circular walk. I approached from the north BUT... where the footpath begins they have made a quarry. So you have to climb up the back wall of the quarry to get to the path. I'm 60yo and managed it, but in some places on all fours. Actually the nicest part of the walk is from the north up to the top. Once clear of the quarry the path is very clear.
Nice to take a walk to the bottom of the mountain and then climb the stairs up. It’s supposed to be 721 steps and although it sounds like a lot, one should be able to make it with a few stops in between. The view along the way is very motivating to push you to go forward.
