With an elevation of 1,009 metres (3,310 ft) above sea level, Mt. Iraya is a major landmark in Batanes, the northernmost province of the Philippines.

According to locals getting a good view from the summit of Mt. Iraya is extremely rare. Even on clear summer days, the mountain’s summit is usually shrouded by clouds and the view from the top is foggy at best. The perpetual cloud cover also causes moisture in the upper reaches of Iraya, making the last part of the trail muddy and a bit tricky to navigate.
