Discover Mt. Apo (DMA) boasts of its passion for adventure while maintaining a reliable, consistent, and professional stance towards bringing a totally worthwhile trek to the top of the country’s highest peak.
What makes DMA different from the other guided tour agencies or freelancers?
As the co-founder, I have a personal bias in vertical marketing. Back when we are starting the business, I applied the horizontal marketing technique with Discover Mt Apo despite the name (Mt Apo). We tried to offer varied tours in Mindanao such as Surigao, Davao, Mt Apo and Samal Tours. Then we realised we are compromising our quality only to cater to a lot of options and packages. After a year, we scratched all other tours and focused mainly on Mt Apo.
What is the advantage of this? Put simply we are exclusive to climbing Mt Apo thus our aim is to always give the best climbing experience any climber could ever have. When you focus on one thing, you make sure you are the best and an awesome go-to Mt Apo expert. And we are!
As an adventure-seeker myself, I found that there’s a scarcity or a lack thereof of agencies that provide a “no-hassle”, “all-in package”, “from arrival at the airport to departure to whatever next destination our clients will pursue”. And a “done-for-you” processing and booking of tours around and outside the metro. Yes, there are quite a few freelancers whom you can call and ask to book your climb itineraries, but it is always better if a legit company handles you. Why? You can read here.
What inspired me to create Discover Mt Apo is the passion to provide a “no-hassle package” to everyone. Isn’t it great that you only focus on your upcoming climb and not on the nitty-gritty stuff? All the heavy lifting of arranging your climb is set for you. Know that by climbing with #TeamDMA, you have avoided scammers and low-quality services.
A colleague in my previous venture, who is a mountaineer, widened my knowledge in the unparalleled satisfaction of climbing and trekking. That feeling of having a peaceful moment watching the sun sets in paradise on top of a mountain or frolicking by the vast Lake Venado. He said that everyone has this “urge” to climb a goddamn mountain even once in their lifetime but doesn’t know how to start off. Thus, here comes DMA.
DMA is for everyone! For newbie climbers, seasoned mountaineers, adventure-seekers, students, team-building, solo-climbers, globetrotters, for everyone who finds solace in the grand beauty of the mountains.
