Overview

Mt. Pulag is one of the most famous mountains in the Philippines, standing proudly at 2926 masl. It has one of the richest biodiversity in the country, having vast forests full of pines, moss, and grass. It is a mountain worth climbing, both for its challenging trails and its natural beauty.

Pulag offers visitors the thrill, fun, and reward they deserve.
