“Cold cold summit”
Review of Mt Salakot

Mt Salakot
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 August 2013

This mountain is located in Napsan - southwest of Puerto Princesa. Jump off is only right beside the National Rd. We're on a class field trip when we visited the mountain. This is an easy trek for beginners, just 3-4 hours to summit, scales at 1,800ft above sea level. I was amazed when I saw an abandoned concrete military camp on top of it. It was an old 570th Composite Tactical Wing of Phil. Air Force and that made it more interesting. During our visit, there are four members of PAF securing the area. On the ceiling of concrete camps are lots of birds nests "Glossy Swiftlet" if I'm not mistaken - actually the whole ceiling is full of them. On the summit there is a heliport and a crashed helicopter full of bullet holes. Here, you can literally touch the clouds, they pass you by time to time and its cold. You can't even see your friend a few meters from you because of the thick clouds. There is also a water source on top w/c is very cold. =) View on top is 360 degrees where you can view the whole city and the west coast. On the foot of the mountain awaits a lovely waterfall. It is a protected area so please secure a permit before heading here but if you visit only the waterfall then no need to secure a permit.

On the national hi-way going to Napsan is a nice waterfall and stream up in the mountains. Four wheel drive is recommended. Make sure to bring your swimsuit because the cool waters are very refreshing after the dusty trip up the mountain. I estimate the mountain pass is about 1,000 feet, 300 meters above sea level. Keep your eyes open for monkeys as your four wheel drive vehicle climbs the roads!
