It's been a long time plan for me and my group to climb up Mount Pulag. And while I'm still savoring the beauty of this mountain thru the photos of successful mountaineers / climbers who've been on it's peak, I stumble upon these good articles on how to get to Mt. Pulag.
I want to share this with you as it may serve as a guide in getting to Mt. Pulag National Park.
Mount Pulag National Park Travel Guide
By: Travel Dojo
Situated in central Luzon in the Cordillera region, Mount Pulag National Park is a beautiful nature reserve with an abundance of bird species and native plants and fauna.
Mount Pulag has over 528 officially documented plant species, with several only found in this area. There are around 33 bird species living in the pine tree forests and numerous mammals including the giant bushy-tailed rat, long-haired fruit bat, Philippine deer and wild boar. The park was designated as a national park in 1987 to protect the wildlife and forests from logging.
The local indigenous people consider Mount Pulag to be sacred, believing the mountain is the after world for their dead. The name Pulag in the native language means to fall and roll down, which characterizes the mountainous terrain.
The mountain is a favorite with climbers from around the world. It is respected for its challenging hikes and steep cliff faces that will test best adventurers. The top of the summit is covered with long grass and bamboo plants. The view from the top is truly spectacular.
Camping is allowed in the national park for a small charge but only in the designated areas. If planning to camp, be sure to take warm clothing and be prepared for rain as the mountain can experience rain year round.

The trip to Pulag usually starts from the 8-hour bus trip from Manila to Baguio. This can be best done overnight so that you can rest throughout the entire trip. The bus that leaves Manila by 10-12 PM is the best trip to take. Arrange your transportation by hiring a jeepney parked along the Caltex station near Burnham park and Session road or by taking the Norton buses (Northern Transit Terminal Station at the top of Magsaysay Avenue) bound for Kabayan Benguet. There are three established trail for Mt. Pulag namely the Ambangeg (Babadac), Ellet (Eddet) and Kabayan (Akiki or Killer Trail).
