Take a hike along the stately peak of Malbato's most picturesque mountain, Lunes Santo. Literally meaning "Holy Monday", the ascent to the island's highest peak is considered a challenge bordering on a religious experience. The mountain trail grants an excellent opportunity to see rare flora and fauna native to Malbato. Tread through hidden forest and jungle pathways and climb Lunes Santos' paths to enjoy the breathtaking vistas and rolling hills of the surrounding environs. Local guides will accompany you on this three hour trek to the four stations, each possessing its own unique view of the wildlife in the area. Watching the sun rising at the summit is very rewarding after a difficult climb. On return, there will be an option for short stop at the park's chapel located on top of a hill and a refreshing dip at the "suba" or stream while brunch is being prepared. Early risers and physically fit guests should not miss this activity.

Trekking to the park's Virgin Forest will be substituted for those who are not physically able to do the climb or weather and trail conditions not permitting.

Guests need to wear loose clothing and carry hats, water, and sunglasses. Sunblock and insect repellent are necessities. Also, sneakers are the recommended footwear; however, depending on the weather, there may be areas that require wading through water.

Cost is Php400/person.

Trekking to Kaluluwang Falls

Deep into one of the forests of Kingfisher Park flows a recently discovered waterfalls of crystal clear spring water. From the main highway the trek to the waterfalls goes through open fields and a gentle sloping hill of lush vegetation and tall forest trees. The forest is alive with streams of fresh water and various forms of plant and animal life. A leisurely trek of about 2 hours to the falls will allow you to see beautiful wild flowers in bloom, rare plants, various species of birds in the branches of the tall trees, endemic frogs, turtles, fish and freshwater crabs in the streams, and if you're lucky sightings of monkeys and wild boars. You will be captivated by the beautiful natural landscape of rocks, flowing water and vegetation.

The falls is a welcome sight after the long warm walk. The water is cool and refreshing. You can drink of this water as it is natural clear spring water filtered by nature. The rock formation here clearly shows how water has shaped its surroundings after hundreds of years. Undoubtedly, the nature lover will be awed by what can be discovered in the area.

Because the trek is in the thick forest where humidity is high, it is recommended that light clothes be used. Also trekking rubber boots would be best footwear as you will need to cross streams as well as walk on rocks and sometimes slippery forest ground. The ground is covered with dried leaves which can be hiding places of insects and even snakes, so the boots will definitely protect you. The use of insect repellants is also recommended.

The KP guides to the waterfalls know the trail and are very well equipped with the knowledge and skill to assure the visitor of a wonderful and enjoyable trek and discovery.

Cost is Php400/person.
