According to Protected Area Management Board (PAMB) Resolution No. 2015-01 or the Resolution To Carry Out Common Trekking Policies Among All Local Government Units in Mt. Apo Natural Park, trekkers would be asked to pay PhP 1,000 per trekker during non-peak seasons and P1,500 during peak seasons like the Lenten Season.
 
But due to the dried-up water sources and grassland of Mt. Apo at present, PAMB decided to control the climbing activities this Lenten Season. Bookings and on-site registrants for the Summer trek will no longer be accepted but those who have booked earlier would still be allowed to climb.
 
However, in the Kapatagan site, Elera said they will still be accepting on-site registrants but will limit to 400 individuals only.
 
Mt. Apo can be accessed through the following trails: Kapatagan, Digos City; New Israel, Makilala; Balutakay, Bansalan; Agco, Kidapawan; Bongolanon, Magpet; and Baruring, St. Cruz.
