The beautiful cloudscape, the rolling hills, the freezing climate and the eye soothing greens make Mount Pulag a favorite climb for many. At 2922 meters above sea level, it is the roof of Luzon and the third highest mountain in the Philippines after Mount Apo and Mount Dulang-Dulang, both in Mindanao.
Dubbed as the “Playgorund of the Gods”, Mount Pulag is nested in Cordillera Mountain Range and bordered by the provinces of Benguet, Nueva Vizcaya and Ifugao that meet exactly on the summit.
A trek to the summit can be done in a day but for those who want to witness the sea of clouds and sunrise spend a night in the campsite for the early morning assault to the summit. There are five known trails, Ambangeg being the easiest trail. For hardcore and more adventurous climbers, Akiki, Eddet, Tawangan and Ambaguio trails offer more challenging terrain.
Going there: Take a bus to Baguio City and rent a local jeepney to take you to the Kabayan Ranger Station of Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for briefing and registration. The trek also start at this point. Prior booking is required to trek Mount Pulag, contact information: [email protected] / +639196315402 / + 639291668864 / (074)-4442720.
