TREK - Mount Pulag, Bangaan and Batad | Cordillera National Parks, Philippines | #BeAbove | 14 - 19 Feb 2019

It’s beauty cannot be captured in pictures. You have to see it with your very own eyes, feel its enigma and breathe the mountain air to make the experience complete. Mount Pulag is Luzon’s highest peak at 2,926m and is one of the most famous mountains in the Philippines. It is the third highest mountain in the Philippines, next to Mount Apo and Mount Dulang-dulang.
