Mount Pulag

Mount Pulag (or sometimes Mount Pulog) is the third highest mountain in the Philippines. It is Luzonís highest peak at 2,922 meters above sea level. The borders between the provinces of Benguet, Ifugao, and Nueva Vizcaya meet at the mountain's peak.

As the highest mountain in Luzon, Mount Pulag attracts a lot of mountain climbers. Highlights of the climb include the montane forests and the grassland summit with its "sea of clouds" phenomenon. There are four major trails up the summit: the Ambangeg, Akiki, and Tawangan trails from Benguet and the Ambaguio trail from Nueva Vizcaya.

The treak wasn't an easy one for me who was a first timer in mountain climbing! 4.5hrs to Baguio, 3hrs to DENR in Bokod, 1.5hrs of rough road jeep ride to the Ranger Station, 6hrs hike to camp site, sleep under a tent with temp of 5 degrees, wake up at 4:30am, trek of 45mins to the peak. trek of 4hrs going back to the Ranger Station :)

I wanted to quit at one point... Good thing I forced myself!!! it was worth every mud, dirt, sweat and muscle pain... :)
