1. How hard is the climb?
Mt. Daraitan has a difficulty scale of 3/10, 10 being the hardest. It is a 3 to 4 hour trek straight ascent to the summit and a gradual descend on the way to Tinapak river.
2. How do we get to Daraitan?
This is exciting. We take private vehicles to Rizal, 3 hour travel time, then a gondola-like boat to cross a river and finally a quick tricycle ride to make it to the jump off point!
4. What if it rains?
The trek will be more challenging as the trail will be muddy and slippery. Let's prepare accordingly thus we require everyone to bring rain protection such as raincoats and poncho. If a storm signal is raised in the area the climb is automatically called off. For other decisions on cancelation the management will announce this to everyone.
5. Are there restrooms in the mountain?
There are decent restrooms and shower areas at the jump-off point. Aside from these there are no other restrooms.
6. Is there mobile signal?
The jump-off point and majority of the parts of the mountain will not have signal. There is signal at the summit.
7. Is this ideal for beginners?
We suggest climbing a level 1 or 2 climb before climbing Mt. Daraitan but if you are confident about your physical fitness and have an active lifestyle then you are more than welcome to join this climb.
8. How big is the group?
At an average we have 12-15 participants plus your guides for this adventure but we can accommodate up to 24 climbers for this adventure.
9. Can we enter the cave?
This will depend on the phase of the group. If time permits then we can enter the cave.
