Pulag - Playground of the Gods

Mt. Pulag "Playground of the Gods". Highest mountain in luzon and 3rd in the Philippines, approximately 2922 masl (meters above sea level). Situated between the borders of Benguet, Ifugao and Nueva Vizcaya. There are different trails going up this mountain, namely: from Benguet Ambangeg (easiest) and Akiki (most challenging), from Nueva Vizcaya Ambaguio and Tawangan. Depending on how risky and adventurous you are, there's one that will surely suit your thirst for adrenaline rush.

In my recent climb in this mountain I had an awesome experience witnessing the grandeur sunrise with sea of clouds. This is not the first time that I've climbed this mountain, but it still hasn't failed to amaze me.
