Very emo, I know.
And emo I was in Coron. I spent hours on top of Mt. Tapyas overlooking the city and just staring out into the horizon. I wasn't problematic nor was I depressed. It seemed like the perfect place to just... think. I took in deep breaths and tried to relax.
Or maybe I'm just out of shape!
Going up Mt. Tapyas shouldn't be missed in Coron. It's worth the climb.

|The basketball court before Tapyas Trail's flight of stairs. You can see the cross from here!|
|The steps are pretty normal. There's just a lot of them.|
|So near yet so far!|
|The famous cross.|
|The viewing deck! There are benches to sit on if you're tired.|
|Panoramic view of Coron Town.|
|There's a smaller viewing deck nearby. Don't miss out!|
|The view from the small viewing deck. It was raining from a distance.|
|From inside the viewing deck.|
|There was a group of travelers who wore the same shoes! Uniform?|
|The rain's coming!|
It's best to climb Mt. Tapyas to catch the sunrise or sunset after going out on tour.
The entrance leading to Tapyas Trail is on San Agustin St. / Malvar St. cor Nueva St. It's not hard to find. It's actually on the same street as Calamianes Expeditions & Ecotours.
