Mt. Pulag-Akiki

Book Now!

Overview

Mount Pulag has earned the distinction of being the highest peak throughout Luzon. There are several trails that can be taken in order to reach the summit of Mt. Pulag. These trails vary according to difficulty, length and features.  One of the most famous trails of Mt. Pulag is known as the Akiki trail. This is considered as one of the most challenging routes in Mt. Pulag. In fact, Akiki trail has been labeled as a ‘killer trail’ because of its steep and ultimately challenging path. Akiki trail consists of 60-70 degree slopes.
 
Aside from the fact that Akiki trail is considered as the ‘hardcore’ level climb, it is also a place where you can experience the diverse trail of pine forest, mossy forest and grass lands in a more in depth fashion. Witness both the sunset and the sunrise from the summit as your second camp is just minutes away from Luzon's highest point. When the adventure is over you can boast of this amazing achievement of reaching Mt. Pulag via the Killer Trail.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:
Please be informed that a Medical Certificate is a must for all hikers as a policy by the DENR. Thank you.
