Bongao Peak is the highest peak in the island of Bongao and the entire Tawi-tawi province. This place is a revered pilgrimage site for both Christians and Muslims. Today the mountain is a 250-hectare treasure trove of biodiversity and one of the last remaining moist forests in the Sulu archipelago. It is also the first site in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) to be administered completely by the local government.
Tip: Make sure to bring bananas as friendly monkeys will greet you along the trail. Best time to climb: early morning.
