About Mount Pulag

Mount Pulag is the third highest mountain in the Philippines. It’s very famous for its beautiful sea of clouds (seasonal) at the summit. The trail is mostly covered in mossy forests while the summit is covered with dwarf bamboos.

About Sagada

Sagada is a small town found in the Mountain Province. Though a small town, it is very rich in natural wonders, traditions, and cultures. It’s famous among travelers because of its beautiful caves, amazing rice terraces, and cold waterfalls.
