Trekking in Boracay is one of the most exciting things you can do on the island. If you want to do something else other than diving and swimming, this could be right for you.
Boracay is located 200 mi to the south of Manila. It is a couple of kilometers at the end of Panay Island. The easiest way to get there is by air. Caticlan Airport is only five minutes from the island. From the airport, you can board a trike to get to the jetty port. There are several boats that are ready to transport you to the island.
What to See
One of the most spectacular views is from Mount Luho. The simplest route is via the Bulabog Beach north end. The climb is steep but not that difficult for seasoned trekkers. Once on the top, you will get a view of the scenic landscape. You can also trek around the island and explore the seas around it.
You can also trek from Angol Point to Mount Luho. There are many areas in the island that are hardly explored. You can go trekking in Boracay your own. You can also hire a guide or get a local resident to help you explore its many hidden wonders.
The original inhabitants of the island were the Ati tribe. Before the 1970s, the island was completely unknown to the western world. It was only in the 1970s that the island was opened up to tourism. According to one story, the place was discovered by Jens Peters, a German traveler.
Others believe that the island was accidentally uncovered by a foreign film crew. Whatever the case may be, the fact is that by the 1980s, it was already becoming popular.
The trekking cost is around 3,000 pesos (70 USD). However, there are many factors that affect the cost. Some resorts and hotels will include trekking tours. In this case, the fees will be included in the package you paid for.
If you do not want to trek the road at Bulabog Beach, you can use a mountain bike. An experienced biker will make the ascent more quickly. But this is not recommended for novice bikers; the dirt road can be difficult to navigate.
Trekking in Boracay is best done during the high and peak season, from October to May. There is rain during the lean season which makes trekking hard.
