Trekked Mt. Talinis for 13 hours! Fantastic! Jump-off at Apolong-Casaroro and exit at Bediao, Dauin. While I did not reach any of the summits, it was the amazing journey that was rewarding. Don't miss the Twin Falls, Sulphur River and Lake Yagumyum.

I just did the one-day trek to Lake Nailig starting from Apolong Trail. It was very challenging. I strongly discourage you to do it in one day unless you are really fit. Most people do overnight trips to Talinis but I didn't have enough time....More

If your fitness level is not so trained, I recommend to do this tour in 3 days. Near the river, there is somebody living. He has a small open hut fo the night. Really wothwhile is the sulfur vent.

Beautiful but sometimes hard hike in preserved nature. Was foggy at the time so cooler. Hope they can protect that place

A very rain forest environment - we didn't go to the top - would have impeded dive time, but it was so high that most days there was cloud cover. Returning to the island from dive trips, it was apparent by the slope falling away...More

Visited here once few years ago with no preparations, no bags, no extra shirts, not even in shoes. Just me and my 2 friends, and the lovely green views. Although we never reach the peak, the views of the Tanon Strait is awesome.
