My spontaneity brought me to the highest mountain in Luzon, standing at 2,922 Meters above Sea Level.

  Mt. Pulag is one of the most climbed mountains and is considered a must have in the bucket list for every mountaineering enthusiast. There are several trails to choose from, and Ambangeg is one of the popular and easiest Trails.

The enchantment of Pulag, however, is much greater than just the clouds, trails and dwarf bamboo. The whole experience is a great treat that makes every pain, COLD and extreme exhaustion totally worth it.

  At 12 midnight, we started the trek to chase the sunrise at the peak. 

 

I cherished the solitude. I walked at my own pace, savored the tranquility, as I watched the red glow of dawn inch its way over the horizon. I conquered the 3rd highest mountain in the Philippines.


 anyone who wants to climb it shouldn’t go unprepared.

 Beginning the weekend as strangers, climbing down as friends
