What are some of the exciting tourist destinations in Digos City?

Mount Apo

Mount Apo is the country’s tallest mountain, at 2,954 meters (9,692 ft) above sea level. One side of the mountain can be visited through Digos City, notably through the Kapatagan village, making it one of the top Digos tourist destinations. You might choose to climb up to the summit of Mount Apo, which takes three to four days if you are an experienced mountain climber. One of the three trails can be accessed from Kapatagan, Digos. 

However, you must organize this through a licensed mountaineering tour group. That is because the local government requires good guides and porters for the trek. A quick online search will give you an idea of what groups to book with. Nevertheless, if mountain climbing is not for you, you can stay in Kapatagan village, where you can see Mt. Apo from afar, which can still be a magnificent view.

Camp Sabros is the most desirable destination for you if you seek a camping vacation with plenty of activities. Imagine staying in Digos City’s Kapatagan highlands and being surrounded by fog as you travel through pine-lined paths. Indeed, something you would expect to see only on television. Beyond the ambiance, the zipline facility is one of the main reasons the location has attracted so many enthusiasts. Zipping through the thick pines and seeing a panoramic view of the lush green forest is a fantastic experience.

Moreover, the hiking trails, picnic tables, a billiard hall, a bar, a souvenir shop, and a little convenience store are among the various amenities provided. Because it may be far from outside stores, the place is designed to supply the necessities efficiently. Jackets, sweaters, and rubber shoes are required due to the “bed weather” feeling caused by the low temperature.
