Mount Pulag Ambangeg Trail
The Trails | There are three main trails: from the simple Ambangeg, to the hardest Ambaguio and Tawangan. Most of the tourist love to hike on Ambangeg trail, since it’s simple and the terrain is really good, perfect for the first timer. Been here several times but I still love walking on Ambangeg trail. The first part of the trail, the terrain is ascending, passing on the sides of cabbage plantations and walking the trail covered with bonsai, flowering plants and trees. The last part is composed of long and wide grasslands to the campsite and summit. The slopes look really good on the background. If it’s summer the grasses are brown and if it’s not it’s green – look so great.
