“Because Mt. Pulag is a majestic mountain that rewards its visitors with a phenomenal sea of rolling clouds and a heart stopping view.”-Victor Sajulga
The most preferred hiking destination in the country is Mt. Pulag
. Undeniably one of the most well-known mountains in the country, Mt. Pulag is the third highest peak in the country and the highest one in Luzon. It became popular for its majestic sea of clouds that never fails to attract a large number of tourists and hikers.
Unfortunately, a recent fire incident damaged a huge part of the mountain, which led officials to close the Akiki Trail for a time. The trail is open now, but hikers are enjoined to practice the Leave No Trace principles during their trek. Meanwhile, the management is implementing stricter rules to ensure everyone’s safety.
Now that you know the best hiking destinations in the Philippines, it’s time to pack your bags and head outdoors! But remember to be a responsible hiker. When amidst nature, keep in mind the famous advice, “Kill nothing but time, leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures, keep nothing but memories.” Happy hiking!
