The top ten highest peaks in the Philippine archipelago are concentrated mainly on its two largest islands. Luzon Island, home of the grand Cordillera mountains, has the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 10th highest. While the rest, including the highest peak, are found in the island of Mindanao.
|Mt. Apo, the highest in the country, is shown in this panorama. It was taken from the summit of Mt. Dulang Dulang (2nd), morning of January 26, 2013.|
|From the summit of Mt. Kitanglad (4th), one can see 4 of the 10 highest mountains cascade. This photo was taken on the morning of January 27, 2013.|
|Mts. Pulag, Tabayoc and Timbac, aka Luzon 1-2-3, is featured in this panorama. These three giants are all part of the extensive mountain system, the Cordillera Mountain Range, found in northern Luzon Island. Photo taken on February 9, 2013.|
Mt. Kalawitan, the 10th highest peak, is also part of the Cordillera Mountain Range, under the jurisdiction of Mountain Province. I haven't climbed nor seen this mountain though.

* Mt. Kalawitan being on the 10th spot is highly disputable. Mt. Amuyao is officially considered to be the 10th highest but personal measurement done by Pinoy Mountaineer says that Mt. Kalawitan is the higher mountain.
