Postcard: The Roof of the Philippines

It's been a year since the last time I visited Brgy. Kapatagan, Digos, Davao del Sur. This is the place where you can have a closer look to the highest peak of the country - Mount Apo. With a height of almost 10,000 ft., Mount Apo is the place where you can find various rare species of Waling-Waling (Vanda sp.), the mighty Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), and many more.

Mount Apo is a dormant volcano located in the southeast part of Mindanao, Philippines. Its last recorded eruption is not known but the geothermal activities beneath suggests that the volcano is still active. Mount Apo is famous for mountaineers and there are numerous trails leading to the summit. The famous one is located at Kidapawan, North Cotabato while some other trails extend up to Digos and Bansalan of Davao del Sur. It is also possible to traverse to Mount Apo from Mount Talomo located in Calinan, Davao City.

On a clear day, Mount Apo, as well as Mount Talomo, is visible from Davao City.

One day, I will conquer Mount Apo. Nothing is impossible.
