PHILIPPINES HIGHEST PEAK
( 10,311 ft. or 3,144 m. )
Conquer Mt. Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines; at 10,311 ft. or (3,144m.) above sea
level, it is the highest surge of a mountain range extending from Cotabato, Davao del Sur
and Davao City to Misamis Oriental in Northern Mindanao.
The volcanic peak, Apo, which means grandfather. this dominates a vast area of 72, 796
hectares where natural wonders lure outdoor enthusiasts to trek through this tribal god's
domain and conquer its towering peak.
Starting from the first camp at blue Lake Agco, trekkers will find an exotic display of
nature at its best; lush tropical forests dotted with hot and cold springs; crystal
clear and boiling blue mountain lakes; hidden waterfalls cascading with a thunderous
roar, sulfur craters, orchids and wild flowers, monkey-eating eagles; as well as the
soul-refreshing symphonies of cicadas and God's littlest creatures - truly an exceptional
display of nature in its primeval state.
Bright dainty wild flowers and orchids clashing with the forest green and fields of
"udang-udang" - flower flocked meadowlands-are a welcome sight as the tiny
flowers nod their heads in the dazzling sunlight.
There are miniature as well as giant pitcher plants, cinnamon trees, and huge centuried
and moss-covered trees of darkly-cooled, sunshielded fern forests.
Hidden in the mountain vastnesses at about 8,000 feet (2,438m.) above sea level is lake
Vendao-a crystal-clear and ice-cold expanse of fresh water that mirrors the majestic twin
peaks of Mt. Apo. Along side the lake is a 15-hectare camping ground that resembles a golf
course with lush green of wild bermuda grasses.
At Mt. Apo's peak, you may linger awhile and take a deep breath. You may even shout to
your heart's content as many past conquerors of Mt. Apo have done. But to complete your
conquest run westward and up towards the summit overlooking the town of Kidapawan. From
there you can view the vastness and wide expanse of Mindanao.
