Hiking is a form of exercise. It is also a good way to relieve stress, particularly if you choose a place with wonderful scenery like Mt. Tapyas. Once you reach the top, you will find a spectacular view of Coron that will surely make all your worries go away. If you are going to Palawan to relieve yourself from the stress of everyday life, then hiking at Mt. Tapyas is one of the best things you should do while on vacation. Look for Coron Palawan package deals with a town tour. Usually, a Coron town tour includes a trip to Mt. Tapyas.
If you’re not sure too sure about taking a hiking trip, here are some benefits you should know and tips you may follow.
Taking a Palawan package deal that includes a trip to Mt. Tapyas can help you lose those extra pounds. How so? Hiking in Mt. Tapyas means that you will be climbing over 700 steps. It is not really a very difficult climb as there are railings that you can use for support. Still, you will sweat a lot as you climb so you also lose those extra pounds you might have gained with all the delicious food in Palawan. It is best if you hike to Mt. Tapyas just in time for you to see the sunset. Just imagine watching the sunset at the peak of Mt. Tapyas. It will be picture-perfect. You can also go there early in the morning if you do not want to climb under the sweltering heat of the sun. Climbing Mt. Tapyas usually takes about 30 minutes. So plan your itinerary accordingly. Make sure to ask about your itinerary with the travel agency you’ll be getting a Palawan package from.
For your safety and to make your hiking experience an enjoyable one, it is advisable that you wear the right kind of clothes and footwear to keep you comfortable. If you are not used to hiking, don’t go alone. It will be good to have someone around who can help just in case. Make sure also to check the weather before going there. Hiking is no fun when it’s raining. Of course, you also need to bring your own bottled water.
After a rewarding trip to Mt. Tapyas, you can also head out to Maquinit Hot Springs if you have the time. It is just around 30 minutes from Mt. Tapyas and also included in your itinerary if you choose a Palawan package with a Coron town tour. If the trip to Mt. Tapyas and Maquinit Hot Springs is not included in your Palawan package, you can just ask the locals how to get there.
