Topload Thoughts To Tanay

After conquering a number of mountains near Manila, the group is keen and hopeful to hike the-cold-never-bothered-me-anyway Mt. Pulag next. I signed up on that climb list too. I’ve already reached its summit, but I haven’t witnessed the sea of clouds on its most beautiful form yet. (Like that of “Above The Clouds” epic finale!) […]

8 Kings You’ll Meet in Travels

Time and time again, we have confirmed through blog posts we read that true love can be found while traveling. It is not a fairy tale anymore even in modern times.

Where Do Broken Hearts Go?

I know it’s been some time. And there’s something on your mind. I see, you haven’t been the same since that cold November day. There’s a voice encouraging you to move on but you don’t know where to begin, and heck, you don’t even know where broken hearts go. The relationships that sadly ended (and […]

15 YOLO Trips I Survived

15 YOLO Trips I Survived

For some reasons, we want to test our own limits beyond what our sober mind thinks. We take the chances. Because YOLO. Because opportunities missed are things we regret the most later. I have my own share of craziness in choosing exciting adventures too. Because greater stories don’t start with a “Once upon a time, […]

Ambangeg Trail of Mt. Pulag

Ambangeg Trail of Mt. Pulag

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.
