Coron, Palawan — Day 1: Mount Tapyas

On my first day in Coron, Palawan, after parking my things in the hotel, I quickly asked the front desk what is the best land site to visit. It was already 5 in the afternoon, and I knew I had to take advantage of my time. The town tour would usually cost 550 pesos, and I just can’t let my money go to a land tour that I could possibly do on my own. The front desk suggested that I go to Mt. Tapyas. The foot of Mt Tapyas is around 500m from the hotel, and a challenging 700+ stare is next.

To reach the top, you have to take the 700+ steps. Make sure you bring a bottle of water, and take a few breaks.
