Another mountain conquered! This time, it's Mount Pulag located in between the provinces of Benguet, Ifugao and Nueva Vizcaya. Standing at 2922 meters above sea level (MASL), it is the highest peak in the island of Luzon and third in the whole of Philippines, next to Mount Dulang-Dulang (2938 MASL) in Bukidnon and Mount Apo (2956 MASL) in Davao and North Cotabato.
I will write a series of this adventure in the coming posts and some of the great people we've met along the course of the long, muddy, misty trail to the summit. I would also want to personally give a million thanks to Ellaine of UP Mountaineer for all the helps and the tips on how to survive Mount Pulag and hypothermia, including the equipment she lended to us. :-)
