Soaking in the beauty of Torill Farm and Camp The view of Mt. Mayon Enjoying the peaceful surroundings

Experience the serene beauty of Torill Farm and Camp, located in the peaceful area of San Roque, Malilipot, just a half-hour drive from Mirisbiris Garden and Nature Center. The climb to the camp takes about 1-2 hours. While access to the lava dome of Mt. Mayon is limited as it's an active volcano, the campsite still offers stunning views for visitors. Note that it's quite cold at the top.

Entrance is affordable at 100 PHP (1.81 USD), and hiring a guide is an additional 309 PHP (5.59 USD). We took the Bonga trail to reach Torill Camp. Remember to check the latest safety updates before starting your hike!
