Overview of Mt. Hibok- Hibok Volcano Trek

Mt. Hibok-Hibok approach is through the base of Barangay Tagdo in Mambajao. It is the only active among the 6 others on the Island. The 1,250 meters slope is a challenge to climbers as the trek entails skillful maneuvers in loose rocks and boulders. There is a crater like lake and steam outlets on top of the peak.

Today, although Hibok-Hibok remains an active volcano, it has no signs of activity. In fact, the only signs of volcanism are the hot springs that count among Camiguin's tourist destinations.

Climbing Hibok-Hibok is quite challenging for a daytrip. It takes 3-4 hours to reach the peak depending on your pace. The altitude gain is quite rapid and sun cover is minimal.Yet the views are unique and spectacular. At the peak, on a clear day, you can see the mossy crater of the volcano. To your north is Bohol, and you can even see Surigao at the east, and Siquijor on the opposite side. Flanking the island of Camiguin is White island, which truly looks white from atop the mountain. Even more unique to Hibok-Hibok is the blade-sharp rocks at the peak area. The pitcher plants that grow on these rocks make the landscape a little bit eerie. All these elements make Hibok-Hibok a must-stop for hikers who are visiting Camiguin.
