The ultimate challenge to the mountaineer however is Mount Apo, the Philippines' highest peak at 2,953 meters above sea level. Situated in the primeval Davao region in Mindanao, the father of all Philippine mountains is home to the endangered monkey-eating eagle (Philippine eagle) and the breeding ground to the exotic waling-waling, one of the rarest and most beautiful orchids in the world. Mount Apo is listed in the directory of international mountaineering expeditions.
