    Hi Risse,

    You contact pinoymountaineer (info@pinoymountaineer.com) in arranging Mt. Apo trip pinoymountaineer.com/2007/10...

    There are several level of difficulty... Kapatagan trail would take 2 days, Kidapawan-Magpet trail that would take you 3-4 days. From Kidapawan, you need to talk to some people in the Tourism office there, they would give you a guide. cotabatoprov.gov.ph/lgus/kid...

    Thank you Haydee! I appreciate all your efforts to help me out.

    I have browsed through pinoymountaineer.com and found a wealth of information there. I also e-mailed the contact there, but I have yet to receive a response from them. I hope they do respond soon.

    Yes, I read that Mt. Apo can be challenging and quite difficult, thus, the high level of difficulty rating.

    I heard the Kapatagan trail is shorter, but more difficult (due to the boulder scrambling you have to go through) than the Kidapawan trail, which is "easier;" however, you'll have to cross the big river without the use of a bridge. :(

    I also found another hiking/trekking provider on-line that specializes in Mt. Apo, but I am still awaiting for their e-mail response.

    Again, thank you so much Haydee! I will keep you posted on the update of this trip.

    check out in facebook : social climbers - your peak experience .
    they organized our trek and took care of everything, gave tips on what to expect and physical conditioning. i had altitude sickness, and was relieved that they brought a doctor along.
