Prepare for a good hike up this mountain. Bring water and snacks. My girlfriend and I hiked Mt. Tapyas upon checking in K-Heights Inn which was located in front of its base. Plan to hike around before sunset since this is an awesome view for it. It took us almost 1 hour or so to make it to the top.... More

Good choice to be on your itinerary on the first day of stay. Get ready for the hike of about 700+ steps. You'll be rewarded at the top.

The walk up only takes around 10-15 minutes from the main street however it can be tiring in the heat. Best to go at sunset to reach a cooler temperature, also views across the islands look much better with the sun behind them.

My friend and I took a tricycle to get here and it was...FREE! I thought I was going to die walking up the steps in the heat and humidity. The hike wasn't so bad especially if you're an athlete. It was rewarding once you get to the top. The view was gorgeous and I was able to catch the sunset.... More

There are around 740 steps to reach the top of the mountain which might be a physical challenge to some. However the view from the top is beautiful especially if done when sun is setting

I was in Coron for 5 days in Feb and hiked this at sunset every day. Some 700 steps up so you will get a workout for sure. GREAT panoramic views of the town of Coron, Busuanga.

Going up the 700+ steps is definitely worth it. And don't worry, there is enough shade on the way, but make sure to bring water! You can buy it at the little kiosk across K-Hights Inn or from sellers at the parking lot, where the stairs begin. The view over the whole bay is amazing. We went up there almost... More

Very easy access to the mountain from coron town, no need for a tricycle at all. Hike took almost 15 min, great for sunrise or sunset. You can see the whole of Coron and the view is amazing! Worth going if you have the time!

The visit here made me realize that I really need to get moving and start doing some cardio! I was huffing and puffing halfway through the climb but the view from the top made it worth it! People might say it's just a view of the town but seeing the cross up there and witnessing the sunset upon reaching the... More
