Limited hikers set at Mt. Apo

DAVAO CITY – Only 50 hikers for each trail a day will be allowed to climb Mt. Apo starting April 12 the effectivity of the Mt. Apo Natural Park–Protected Area Management Board (MANP-PAMB) resolution ending the one-year “indefinite closure.”

The MANP-PANB imposed higher fees and limit the number of climbers to ensure the Mt. Apo would be protected after last year’s incident where a bush fire that developed into a forest fire engulfed its peak that lasted for more than two weeks.

Climbers can scale up Mt. Apo via its six trails in Kidapawan, Makilala, and Magpet in North Cotabato, Digos, Sta. Cruz, and Bansalan in Davao del Sur. (Antonio L. Colina IV)
