Mt. Tibig TrailThe Trail | The elevation of Mt. Tibig is not so problematic in terms of trail difficulty. It has easy to moderate rating given by majority of the hikers. From the guides residence, the first part is walking on the boulder and then uphill. In ascending, some parts of the terrain is covered with fruit bearing trees and shrubs. Then before reaching the summit, there’s also an open and spacious area covered with cogon grass, which serves as cattle’s green pasture.
