  • The hike itself is not that hard and is easy even for beginners. The summit is clean and well maintained! At the top, you can still see the sea of clouds (depending on weather). There are areas where they have developed for photo ops. It's best if you will be able to climb the summit atleast before dawn. • There are locations which they add decorations for photo ops like the hand structure and swing. • Overlooking view is priceless! • Easy and fun hike. • If you are a beginner on hiking, you can definitely try this. • The summit is a great place to relax and meditate. • Depending on your tour, on the way down, you can experience bathing in waterfall(s), river, or pond. • You can take a nap or just enjoy the view at the top! Pro tips: - There are tours who offers twin and penta-hike. You might want to experience those as well. - Bring towel and lightweight clothes. - Bringing sunblock is a good idea. - Shades, tube mask (or balaclava), and arm sleeves are good to have on a hike. - Wear comfortable clothing (preferably long pants and socks). - Bring trash bags as it is highly discouraged to litter at the summit or the trail. - At certain times of the year, the rivers and waterfalls run dry, so you might want to consider the time of the year when you want to hike.
  • Great experience! I tried hiking for the 3rd time by myself and the group that I came with is fun and welcoming so everytime they are organising a hike, I came along. This was January of this year, and we are planning our hike next year. More mountains & memories for us. The mountain is great and our tour guide is a treasure! Loved her for giving us plants to take home and some vegetables too. Thank you Agnes! And Thank you BTR for the coffee! Delicious 👌👌
