MT. PULAG (AMBANGEG TRAIL)
LLA: 16°34’58″N 120°53’15″E, 2922 MASL
Mt. Pulag is the highest point in Luzon, giving it the name “The Rooftop of Luzon”. There are several trails going to the peak and Ambangeg trail is the easiest. It is located in the Benguet, Ifugao and Nueva Vizcaya provinces in the Cordilleras Region. It is called the “Salad Bowl of the Philippines”. When you start climbing Mt. Pulag, you would be starting on high levels already, so be prepared about this.
Everybody knows Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines. You can make arrangements with jeepneys there to bring you up to Badabak Ranger Station where you were to start. You can arrange jeepneys with Emerita Tamiray @ 639196315402 and you can fax up your plans/itineraries to her (074) 444 7428 as she is the DENR Park Superintendent there. There used to be another guy who is known to every mountaineer, Mang Roger but he was shot dead just this year. If in need of an extra tent, one may be rented at the Ranger Station for P75. As for guides, the rate is P500/guide for 1-5 persons, and P100 for each addition person thereafter. The maximum number of persons/guide is 10 (P1000) but with 11 persons, the cost is just (P1100). Porters may also be secured at P300/day.
