It is essential to have the right gears and clothes when you want to climb Mt. Pulag. Temperature can go close to the freezing point and it rains almost everyday in the mountain. Without proper equipment, the cold combined with the rain could leave you with hypothermia and you would end your trip at the hospital.
We will provide a list of things to bring when you book.
We also provide full board meals for those who don't want to bring their cooking equipments.
Tent or home-stay?
It is your call but we can arrange both. We will reserve your night at the home-stay or we also have tents and sleeping bags for rent.
❶ Do we need a medical certificate? Yes. Without this medical certificate the National Park won't let you enter the site. You can either secure it from your doctor or get it on site from the local clinic.
❷ Is it easy or difficult? This trek is a moderate one. On Tripinas scale we would put it at 2.5/5. The trail is easy and never very steep but the weather can be really cold and wet. If you have the right gears/clothes it will be manageable.
❸ Can we camp close to the summit? There is a camp, called "camp 2" but it is only open from Monday night to Thursday night. On weekends, camping is only allowed at ranger station (the base camp)
❹ Do we need to reserve? Yes, the national park does not allow visitors without a reservation. TRIPinas will take care of this if you book with us.
❺ Is it true that a foreigner will have to pay more? Unfortunately yes, the park charges an additional fee for non-Filipino. This extra fee won't get you any additional service.
❻ What are the most common traps when booking a tour package to Mt. Pulag? Hidden charges: some operators won't mention that some fees are not covered with their packages and you will end up being asked to pay again on site. No reservation: some operators (mostly the illegal ones) don't have a reservation with the park and you will end up being denied at the entrance of the park.
