“An Oddly Neglected National Park”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

During our visit today to Mount Isarog, the second tallest volcano in the Bicol Region, we literally did not see one other tourist, local or foreign. This is odd for a few reasons. First, the mountain is close to the large urban centre of Naga City, so there are no shortage of people in the region. Second, the region has sweeping views across to the isthmus; you can see the Pacific Ocean on one side of the peninsula and the sea inland. Finally, the lush, green forest and waterfalls are very appealing in their own right. Perhaps the reason is because the area is not well-developed. Not even the major trails are well signposted. But you really don't need a guide to check out a couple of the falls and enjoy the views. This is a better attraction than anything you will find in Naga City itself.

“Good Birdwatching Spot”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

I went birdwatching on Mt. Isarog three times. I didn't hike the mountain but just stayed around the entrance where the most birds are. I also hiked down to the Malabsay Falls. The walk up to the entrance to the park in Panicuason is very rough and rocky. I recommend hiking boots. It also rained every time I went so bring a raincoat. I was disappointed that there weren't more bird species but thrilled that I got a long look at a Scale-fearthered Malkoha.
