03 Jun Mt. Apo To Be Closed This June-August 2022 For Annual Off-Season
Mga higala! Mt. Apo, the country’s highest peak (2,954 meters above sea level) and one of its most famous hiking destinations, will be closed to climbers from June to August 2022!
This aims to give the said mountain’s hiking trails and campsites the time to recover and to let the flora and fauna rest and reproduce in peace.
ICYDK, this is based on the Protected Area Management Board (PAMB) Resolution No. 06 that sets an annual 3-month off-season for Mt. Apo.
The government and the locals support this closure and understand that even though this affects their tourism activities, the benefits to Mt. Apo’s ecosystem far outweigh any sort of inconvenience.
