Mt.Ugo to Mt.Pulag Traverse


FUN AT Mt.Ugo to Mt.Pulag Traverse

Trail Difficulty: 8/10

Adventure Duration: 6 day/s

For mountaineers that have conquered the toughest peaks Luzon has to offer but are still looking for a little extra: look no further than the Ugo-Pulag Traverse. This six-day, long distance trek takes you from Mt. Ugo (2,150 meters) on the border of Benguet and Neuva Vizcaya to the summit of Mt. Pulag (2,922 meters) – the highest point in all of Luzon – on a 90 kilometer trail spanning the rugged terrain of the Cordillera Mountains.

This “megatraverse” showcases the best of the Cordilleras: challenging ascents up steep slopes; strolls through enchanting mossy forests; pine trees as far as the eye can see; and breathtaking vistas all the way through. Expect to cross a dozen precarious hanging bridges, marvel at the occasional hidden waterfalls, and walk alongside the fabled rice terraces.

One aspect that sets this traverse apart from the others is its focus on culture. The trek utilizes “living trails” used by the locals and indigenous tribes in their day-today lives. Campsites are strategically located in several villages scattered throughout the route, allowing hikers to mingle with people and imbibe the way of life in the Cordilleras.

Whether you’re looking for a totally immersive mountain experience, or simply a good old-fashioned challenge, the Ugo-Pulag Traverse will definitely not disappoint.
