One of my items in the bucket list is to write a screenplay for a movie. Of course, that break is an automatic road film. While I was mind mapping my thoughts on how to play around on my material, an idea on making a spoof of the popular romantic-comedy films rolled into one hugot […]
There are several mountain trails at Mt. Pulag you can follow depending on your starting point and your hiking experience. Ambangeg Trail is the executive trail meant for beginners.
Mt. Pulag is the highest peak in the Luzon island. On whether Mt. Pulag is the second highest in the Philippines or third, there’s still a deliberation since Mt. Dulang-Dulang in Mindanao also stands tall next to Mt. Apo. You will overhear a lot of encounters by mountaineers that they experience temperature near zero degree Celsius. But what attracts a lot of peak climbers most is its famous sea of clouds phenomenon. And not all hikers will see the phenomenon on their first hike or even on their fifth try.
This particular shot is taken while descending from the summit. And yes, there are a queue of mountain climbers. It’s like exodus.
How To Get There:
Here’s a do-it-yourself guide by Pinoy Mountaineer. Take a bus from Manila to Baguio. Head to the bus terminal at Old Slaughterhouse and take A-Liner bus bound for Kabayan. Attend the orientation at the Visitor’s Center. Take a habal-habal to the Ranger Station. Start trekking to Camp 2. Trek early morning to the summit for sunrise.
How Did I Get There:
I joined Travel Factor‘s open trip to the executive trail of Mt. Pulag. I paid for the convenience instead of worrying too many details when doing it by myself. It was my first (and major) climb ever. The story of my first climb will be up soon.
