    Gran, ilang hours yung climb?
  • granslime_28granslime_28 sightseeing global wonders PEx Rookie ⭐
    ^^ max na ang 4 hours sa mga beginners, starting from ranger station... though major climb 'to (hike could be level 1)
  • fatedfated Viajero Solitario PExer
    fixed na ba yung date?
  • pichnesspichness I live, I laugh, I love PExer
    kaya kong maghike pero hingalin at need ko maraming stopovers. Pwede ba ako dyan? *peace*
  • granslime_28granslime_28 sightseeing global wonders PEx Rookie ⭐
    ^^ kahit 10,000 stop-overs pa.... pexers are supportive by nature, hehehe !!
    remember, fun-hiker lang din ako !!!
    :)
  • fatedfated Viajero Solitario PExer
    looks like fixed na nga ang date, sana merong weekday climb sa pulag. hindi pwede ng weekend dahil sa trabaho.
  • pichnesspichness I live, I laugh, I love PExer
    Mas mahirap ba hike dyan compared sa hike sa sagada sa Bomod-Ok falls? interested ako kaso nahihiya naman ako sa malimit na stopovers. hehe
  • fatedfated Viajero Solitario PExer
    ^^kayang kaya mo yan pichness, madaming fun climbers ito ang trail na pinipili dahil pinakamadali siya among the other trails.

    give it a shot! *okay*
  • HisbenzHisbenz Member PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    gusto ko to.. basta fun hike lang. hindi rin ako beterano sa pag akyat! haha
  • pichnesspichness I live, I laugh, I love PExer
    ^fated pangarap ko talaga ito, nakayanan ko sa Sagada at Mt. Banahaw although I was one of the "weakest link" ika nga coz I always plea for a stopover. Madali kasi ako hingalin maybe because of weight pero hindi rin, kasi kahit nung payat pa ako mabilis ako mahingal lalo pag elevated ang slopes. Wala naman akong asthma. Hehe

    Pagisipan ko muna ng husto at sana pag-isipan din ng mga PEXERs kung gusto nila ako isama. Hehe *peace*

    ^^Is it really via Baguio? I remember seeing the sign "TO MT PULAG" sa Nueva Vizcaya (am not sure if its Aritao).

    I'm not that familiar with the roads in the North so I leave it up to you guys to decide:D

    mas mahirap ang hike (uphill/downhill) sa bomod-ok pa-stairway-type kasi, s pulag steep-offroad lang!!
    don't worry ang malimit na stop-overs, we will appreciate our time sa pag-akyat.... eto nga ang adventure sa bundok so fun hiking lang po !!
