I’m an avid hiker and the danger level for this one is incomparable, as well as the view you’re rewarded with at the end. We had to scale vertical jagged rocks and balance on them as well, literally free climbing for some parts. We did...More

My teenage son and I did this activity together. They provide a helmet and harness primarily for the hanging bridge. The trek up was tiring for me and was a no "sweat" for my child. I'm certain that age and the heat had something to...More

A short hike up, well worth it for an amazing view. You wear helmets and harnesses to cross the wooden bridge, felt safe throughout. Our guide was lovely, and offered to take pictures of us. Would recommend it!

When you are in El Nido, make sure to go to Taraw Cliff. It's little bit dangerous but the adrenaline rush is there. Over-looking the entire El Nido town and the majestic beauty of Palawan.

Unbelievable experience, best thing we did in El Nido!!! Everyone talks about the island hopping tours, but definitely add this to your list! DISCLAIMER - it is quite physically and technically challenging and if you’re scared of heights, probably not for you! You need a...More

When we went there last year, they also said that. But we found a guide, who took us to the cliff. If you plan to go hiking, make sure your guide provides you safety gears and wear it at all times.
