Mount Apo, Philippines’ tallest and most majestic stratovolcano, stands proudly at an elevation of 2,954m above sea level. Regarded as the Grandfather of Philippine Mountains (in etymology, although apo means grandchild, it is also a term used in respect for old people), the view at the peak overlooking Davao region is simply breathtaking.
