Mt. Pulag

Mt. Pulag is located in northern Luzon’s mountainous Cordillera Region. It is approximately 60kilometers east of Baguio. Mt. Pulag encompasses Luzon’s highest peak and is 3rd highest in the Philippines. This national park is characterized by a very rugged terrain that has a range of habitats that include pine forest, mossy forest and alpine grassland which covers an area of 11,500 hectares. Mt. Pulag is probably one of the best summit trails of any mountains in the country. There are four major trails to the peak. These are the Ambangeg, Akiki and Tawangan and Ambaguio trail. For beginners, the usual trail is Ambangeg. It is recommended especially to the newbie because of its established trail and its only about 8km to the summit. Permits should be obtained from the ranger station. Vehicles can negotiate the trail all the way to the Ranger Station. Both the DENR Office and the Ranger Station are located along the trail, just a few meters from the jump off area.
