Before visiting el nido I’ve done my research and it was very mixed up info , so here is some Clarity

1- Taraw :
is the mountain u see every where in el nido town
It can be arranged via some tour agencies to climb it up cost =800php per person “ that wut we paid ” they provide a guide & per of gloves that’s it! Timing 4:30 , 6 & 7 am
It should take an hour each way up & down but it depends on ur abilities
It’s very challenging & Requires high physicality as it’s a vertical walls of sharp stones with no safety gear wut so ever , So to make it clear it’s a climbing not hiking activity
Also if u r basophilic “ the fear of falling “ or u r afraid of heights please don’t do it , coz u would be able to finish it as the last part will give u give u a heart attack “ happened to me & I couldn’t finish, if not the climbing is fun “ my friend enjoyed it very much & the view from above is breathtaking

2- Canopy :
is a man made steps, bridge& platform
Where it will allow ppl like me to see the same view but without losing their mind , it’s very short trip up & down almost 10 min each way it costs 400php includes a guide, helmet& u will be attached to zip line till u reach the platform no need for tour Agency here , it’s organized by an office downstairs of the walk timing 8:5
views from over there is incredible

3- dream walk :
It’s just An add on to canopy where instead of going back the same way u came up , u will be going through a dream catcher “ a spiderwebbed like platform facing the amazing view it cost additional 400php per person & u can ask for it it from the begging or decided when u r up there and pay when u r down “ we didt do though “

U must do one of theses 3 or all of them if u can as the view from up there is instagram worthy

Not worth the money we managed to get it for P300 but still very disappointed. We thought we doing the dream catcher but we did only a walk over bridge to view platform. We told another P400 to do dream catcher

So to avoid some misunderstandings here: you can do the official route. There you will find the rope ladders and stairs. This is where you'll find two routes. There's also an unofficial way to go. This can be quite dangerous. You'll get gloves and sometimes a helmet and start climbing after a guide. There are 3 'walls' you'll climb. One in a 90 degrees angle. Its far more exciting than following a well made path for 400 pesos. This costs 700 but will easily blow your mind. Not doable on slippers. They tend to leave at 4.30 AM to watvh sunrise. Ask around the central bakery in town and you'll get in contact with the guys doing this exciting route!

P.S. Leave the kids at home

We took the Canopy walk price 400 pesos. We didn’t do the Dreamwatcher. The “guide” (a young boy) was not professional. He started running on the bridge which caused the bridge to wobble and a member of our group lost her balance fell on the bridge despite the harness. Luckily she didn’t injure her hips or ankles. The company needs to train these kids on safety-first.

Spectacular views, beautiful rocky & green surroundings! Very picturesque.
It’s bit more challenging canopy walk then those I’ve done in past.
Make sure you have good walking/ hiking shoes as you’ll need them especially for the first, which is also last steep part. Don’t wear flip flops like I did.

This was probably the most challenging thing we did in Philippines! You will love it if you are adventurous ;) We went there for sunrise, and started around 4.30 in the morning. The hike up takes about one hour and it is pure rock climbing. Do it with a local guide, because they provide you gloves and torches, and help you take the correct path. Requires good physical condition. There are MANY MOSQUITOS in the path, so put on some anti mosquito spray before you start!
Overall, an unforgettable experience!

Clarifying for everyone since we almost skipped the "dream walk" which is almost the same price as the canopy walk because lack of description online and even local tour guides. The canopy walk is the original climbing trail built around 2015. It is nice and unique - not too hard but you are climbing lots of stairs (ladders).

The dream walk is a whole other section which provides even more dramatic panoramic views in addition to the spider web like platforms (which I thought was the only addition of dream walk and almost passed on).

Parts of the dreamwalk require you to be teathered by harness for safety but the views and photos are well worth the money. Have done both the canopy walk and the dream walk now, I would have been disappointed if I had passed on the dreamwalk - so highly recommend it for everyone.

Also some shade but still humid so bring a little water and sunscreen. Do NOT recommend flipflops even though some people did. Much more comfortable and safe to do in shoes.

Enjoy

The tour equips you with helmets and harnesses and takes your up the cliff for a 30 min. tour. The climb is suitable for mediocre climbers as the beggining part requires some agility, strenght and balance.
Further up the harness is attached to cross the obstables to the top.
From the top you can enjoy a beatiful view of the coastline with views all the way up to twin beach.

Managed to do the Taraw Cliff early in darkness to reach the top for sunrise. An unbelievable memory on top of the peak where pictures do not do it justice. The sunrise was fantastic.
The climb itself is tough, extremely humid ascending and descending as you’re climbing through the forest. Climbed in darkness which was great as seeing some of the cliff faces during the day would probably have meant we wouldn’t have climbed. Some are nasty looking.
However a tour guide is essential and Bryan and his compadre gave us a great hike and they got us up and down safely. Would highly recommend.

Going there was not easy, scary and dangerous. A 45 minute to 1 hour climbing with rest, you must bring water. The 360 degree view on the top was fantastic. If you want to experience this kind of activity you must get a tour guide. I couldn't enough to recommend this activity.
