Mount Halcon – Baco, Oriental Mindoro

Mount Halcon is the fourth highest mountain in the Philippines. It is found in the municipality of Baco in the province of Oriental Mindoro, the eastern half of Mindoro Island which is part of the region known as Mimaropa.



Running from north to south, the mountain creates a natural boundary between the province and Occidental Mindoro. With a height of 2,586 meters above sea level, it experiences frequent rains and occasional flash floods. Because of this hazard, it is generally considered by mountaineers to be the most difficult mountain to climb in the Philippines.
