Only 1,000 allowed in Mt. Apo summer climb

mt apoExtreme summer heat has forced authorities to limit at 1,000 people allowed to climb Mt. Apo this summer.

The Mt. Apo Natural Park Protected Management Board said the move is a precautionary measure to protect the country’s highest peak from forest fires.

Massive forest fires damaged a large part of Mt. Apo during the summer climbs of 1997 and 2003.
