Book Now!


Mount Pulag has earned the distinction of being the highest peak throughout Luzon at 2,922 MASL. There are several trails that can be taken in order to reach the summit of Mt. Pulag.  One of the most famous trails to the summit of Mt. Pulag is the Akiki trail also known as the "killer trail" because of it's steep and winding trails. 
Aside from the Akiki trail being considered as a ‘hardcore’ level climb, it is also a hike where you can experience the biodiversity of Mt. Pulag where you will encounter the pine forest, mossy forest, and grasslands as you hike to its summit. 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 about this amazing achievement of reaching Mt. Pulag via the Killer Trail.
