Bits of Tips:

• guides in Mt. Manalmon are required
• crossing Madlum River via the monkey bridge is fun - I recommend it.
• the trail is fairly easy, highly recommended for beginners
• bring headlamps if you're planning to do spelunking in Bayukbuk Cave. 
• there's a campsite before the summit, overnight camping is a possibility
• you can also choose to hike up Mt. Gola if you have plenty of time.
