Lake Agko Resort Mount Apo

Agko Resort – Mount Apo – Kidapawan City


Lake Agko Swimming Resort - cell 09056030607

This hot springs resort is at the trail head leading to Mt. Apo. It would be a good idea to arrive the night before the climb so you can get an early start.

climbing-apo-014The Agko resort  is a simple rustic place to relax in the hot water and get ready to go first thing in the morning. If you leave from Kidapawan the day of the climb, a lot of time will be wasted organizing the 20+ kilometer ride up the mountain to the starting point. I suppose you could walk the 20 k but no locals do. A few ride horses but most others ride on a habal-habal modified motorbike with an extended seat.

climbing-apo-030A big room for groups runs 1,500 pesos per night and there is no limit on how many share the room. There are 7 beds.

This seems like a real value to me.

climbing-apo-025A room for 2 persons with a cr runs 500 pesos.

A simpler room for two with outside cr will cost 300 peso.

climbing-apo-028With a single bed and a double – 600 pesos.

There are open nipa huts around the pool that can be rented overnight for 250 pesos.

There is no Smart signal at Agko, try Globe.

Climbing Mount Apo – youtube video of the beautiful sunrise from the top of Mt Apo

climbing-apo-001Security said that they would watch my bike for me while we are walking the mountain trail. It is a good idea everywhere in the Philippines to have some one keep an eye on your bike.


climbing-apo-005The hot springs at the Agko Resort are a good place to soak sore muscles after the climb. I find the people up there in the mountains to be very friendly and helpful but you do have to keep in mind that here are security issues in the area.

climbing-apo-026The tourist center at the city hall in Kidapawan recommends that climbers stay here to base their climb from.

I chose to base at The Old Barracks Suites in town because they have wi-fi internet and a good restaurant. The guide is coming here at 6am and we plan to drive up the mountain to Agko first thing in the morning.

    My quick questions:

    1-Do Agko Resort and the Barracks hotel have air conditioning?
    2-Do you know if it’s possible (and safe) to leave a small bag at either hotel with travel clothing and laptop computer while I hike?
    3-Do you have a sense of how much to tip a guide and porter after a 3-day Apo hike?
    4-If I took a bus or chartered car from Davao to Kidapawan, how would I find transportation to Agko? Is it easy?

    Daghang salamat, pare. (Westerner ako.. katulad mo, so I am excited to travel sa Pilipinas.)
