Luzon highest summit
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.
We will provide a list of things to bring when you book.
For those who don't want to bring their cooking equipments they can cook their own meal at the homestay.
Tent or home-stay?
It is your call but we can arrange both. If you plan to go during the Amihan months choose the homestay.
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 has a tight carrying capacity and it often closed without prior notice.
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 national park charges an additional fee for non-Filipino (unless they have an ACR card). This extra fee won't get you any additional service.
❻ Which day of the week should I plan to go? All weekdays are fine, even a tour on a Friday to Saturday and a tour on a Sunday to Monday is enjoyable. But please avoid scheduling your tour on a Saturday to Sunday: on top of the fact that fees are more expensive on Saturday to Sunday, the park is usually fully booked and overcrowded with long waiting and at the end the experience is less good.
