Who loves to wake up at 5AM? Can I see the sea of hands? I thought so. I would hide myself under the table, rip my friends jacket off to get cover and wouldn’t make a sound even if they would tease me with free coffee.
But… did you say sunrise hike with potentially good photos and morning light? Okay, I’m in.
I am just so stoked about these few, but painfully beautiful views and photos from our sunrise hike to Mt.Tapyas. You just can. not. beat. the. morning. light.
Mt.Tapyas is pretty steep hill that basically sits in the Coron town. When you go, plan your time well and consider your fitness level, cause the “hike” is nice with well built stairs, but I mean.. it’s A LOT of stairs (especially for 5AM when your body thinks you’re at sleep… but jokes on you, body). We managed to do it with approx 15min, but we also slept in a little and were in a hurry. So do your planning, sun is not waiting after you. ;)
Reaching to the top, the main view is actually to the Coron city and bay. You can see the surrounding mountains and islands pretty well and lots of people suggest to come here on your first day, just to get a birdseye to where you are.
But this was not the view I was loving so much. To see this view, take the stairs up from the right side of the fences/buildings, and you’ll see a lovely view to the rolling mountains and a little hut. Wait and see how the rising sun works it’s magic. Like it did for us.
Although I really really like sunsets, sunrise hikes are my favourites and something special. There’s usually not a lot of people around who will make the effort and you’ll get the views to yourself. So go ahead, set the alarm, it’s worth it!
