Mt. Pulag: Hiking Guide

mt pulag 2019
I personally consider Mt. Pulag as one of the most beautiful mountains in the Philippines, therefore, you should include this on your Must Hiked list. It is the third highest mountain in the country and the highest point in Luzon, measures 2,922 MASL. Mt. Pulag has the famous “sea of clouds” that attracts many tourist. This is a majestic phenomenon where the hikers, on the summit, are literally above the clouds.

The Trails to the Summit of Mt. Pulag:


Mt. Pulag has three main trails: from the simple Ambangeg, to the hardest Ambaguio and Tawangan. Most of the tourist love to hike via Ambangeg because it is simple and the terrain is really good,  highly recommended for first timer. The terrain is ascending, passing on the sides of cabbage plantations and walking the trail covered with bonsai, flowering plants and trees. The mountain slopes covered with brown and greens are absolutely stunning.
