Climbing Mt. Napulak is the ultimate way of redeeming oneself after staying indoors. The peak of Igbaras rewards climbers with the calming whispers of grass, refreshing breeze, and majestic view of the mountain ranges. It is best to hire an experienced guide since steep ascents can be found on the way to the summit. Taking this trail will also work your muscles—perfect for burning the cholesterol brought by Netflix and munchies during the quarantine.
