Charming Coron: The Mt. Tapyas Climb

8:27 PM

We were chasing the sunset.

Our plane arrived past noon and by 3pm we were lazily lying on our beds to get our much needed rest. It was a Saturday and we were in my idea of paradise - Coron, Palawan.

At 4pm, we got a knock on our door telling us that we should prepare for the climb. It would be 700 steps to what would be a spectacular view of Coron and the sunset.


We bought bottled water from the vendors at the parking lot. We should have brought our own jug.

Two-hundred steps done. Tired but not half-way through.

The sun was setting. The heat was still bearable considering the trees around us.

Finally, we reach the top. The climb seemed short as we talked about the future and our plans together.

The grass were like straws of gold. It was like the golden hour. We chased the sunset and caught it on top of Mt. Tapyas.

We were told that horses ran wildly on the grassy slopes. Imagine the movies where cowboys were riding through mountains.

We took a short rest at a gazebo at a far end of the mountain. The place was so peaceful. I loved the cold wind after a long climb.

We chased the sunset and the golden rays surrounded us. Time to go down, talk more about our moments while we were creating this one. We talked about the year to come. We have more places to explore.

  1. a hill and a beach nearby will always be a favorite spot for me. thus making coron an ideal spot for a traveler who enjoys trekking as much as loving the beach.
