Expenses

KFC tikling to Binangonan port – P22.00

Registration fee – P20.00

Boat fee – P30.00

Tour guide – P400.00 (good for 7 persons)

Binangonan port to Isaw Haus, Taytay – P26.00

Food & water – P300 more or even less (breakfast, lunch & dinner)

For a total of roughly P448.00! Such a budget and hike friendly trip. 

Lesson learned, always bring a lot of water (bottles) even if you think that it’s gonna be a ‘short’ hike. It was really humid and hot when we reached the summit and a cold beverage was the only thing in our minds that time. It’s better to bring a lot than be sorry in the end!

Above all, Mt. Tagapo was a lovely experience. My friends and I had so much fun! 10/10 I would recommend people to visit this place (especially for beginners).
