Mt Tapyas, Coron

(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
A dramatic backdrop to a small coastal town, Mt Tapyas serves as a popular viewpoint and offers sweeping panoramas over the surrounding islands. Follow the signs from town and begin the trek up the marked pathways, which feature paved stairways and trails. Climb the approximately 700 steps to the top and you'll find the mountain's summit accented by a giant metal cross. From there, you' can enjoy unobstructed views of the island, the bay, and the rugged coastline, dense with jungle vegetation. Plan your Mt Tapyas visit and explore what else you can see and do in Coron using our Coron vacation trip planner.
