Rising to 3,143 m above sea level, Mt Apo is the highest peak in the island of Mindanao and the whole Philippines. The mountain encompasses the provinces of North Cotabato, Davao del Sur, Davao City and Southern Mindanao. Its mountain range extends to Agusan and Misamis Oriental in Northern Mindanao.(www.mountainet.ph/apo.htm}
The photo was taken from the Kapatagan trail in Davao del Sur early in the morning. Kapatagn trail is a challenging route going to the peak because of the boulders and the sulfuric vents along the way.

It is interesting to see this not so often depicted mountain!
I notice vegetation practically to the top in spite of the altitude...
Well composed image, with strong foreground interest!
