The Mount Apo National Park presents a challenging but gratifying experience as you get the opportunity to discover and have a close encounter with nature. But the most popular activity in the park is conquering Mt. Apo, the highest and most majestic mountain in the Philippines. It is located between the city of Davao and the provinces of Davao Del Sur and Cotabato. The famous climbing destination can be reached for at least two days. There are two main trails, the Kidapawan Trail which is on the side of Cotabato that features forested trails and shallow rivers, the other one is the Kapatagan Trail which is on the side of Davao, this trail is much more tougher but compared to the former this has a volcanic terrain. Mountaineers from all over the world visits the mountain with an expectation of reaching the summit and experiencing the most beautiful sunset you can ever see in your life. It does not matter if you are a first-time climber or an experienced one, the climb will definitely be an ultimate adventure.
