Mt. Apo Highland Resort – A home beneath the mountain

Stories are meant to be shared.

Kapatagan, Digos City  –  After a three hours ride from Davao City, I found myself on the foothill of the gorgeous Mt. Apo. With a single purpose – relaxation. In addition to the stunning sight of the iconic mountain and the cold breeze on the plateau, I couldn’t help but be jealous of the people living around the area. Imagine living here, waking up on this mountain air with an awesome view, oh that would be life.

How to get to Mt. Apo Highland Resort?
Getting here isn’t as bad as what they used to, the roads are already paved and you can easily hire a (habal-habal) motorcycle from Digos City to reach the area. Cost is around P100/pax and it normally takes 45 minutes to an hour to get to the location. The terminal is located at Llanos clinic.

You have two options of accommodation in Mt. Apo Highland Resort. First, you have the Lake Mirror cottages which are located in the lakeside area – Cabin rates are (P1,800) 2 pax & (P2,000) 4 pax. While the second one is the hillside cottages – Cabin rates are (P2,000) 2 pax & (P2,200) 4 pax respectively. I personally prefer the hillside because of the altitude and the fantastic scenery.
