Located in Pan de Azucar island, Mt. Manaphag or more popularly called Mt. Pan de Azucar is the most commanding landmark in Concepcion. According to legend, a giant named Toya used to inhabit the summit of Manaphag. Toya takes a bath in a lagoon on the summit, using for a scoop the shell of a gigantic manlot or clam. It is also home to white-breasted hawks and a community of wild monkeys.
Mt. Manaphag is the tallest peak in the islands that dot the northeastern coast of Iloilo. It is characterized by spectacular crags and a very steep incline, the reason why some consider it as one of the the steepest mountains in the Philippines. Thus, it poses quite a challenge for mountain climbers.
Sigarong Backpackers, a mountain climbing group, has provided an interesting online journal of their climb of Mt. Manaphag.
