Mt Ulap. Located in Itogon Benguet, it is a mountain range became the popular destination for beginners that would like to enjoy Cordilleras scenic view while trekking the grassland and pine tree ridges which I myself enjoyed the most.

The refreshing smell of those pine trees, the grasses laced with flowers and the intricate rock formations made our hiking breathtaking. There were steep climbs but those are a lot easier than the previous mountain I went up. The awesome views and scenic spots made me forget about the fatigue I was experiencing and I am so delighted that I was able to capture those with my camera.

Reaching those summits was some kind of a little feat. The moment we reached the top we gazed through our surroundings and what an awesome view it was, and there were those clouds providing a magnificent experience and backdrop.

Most notable of the places we went to was Mt. Gungal with a bulldoze rock formation so imposing as If taking guard of the entire mountain ranges. It is a must to have your picture taken as an imprimatur that you have been to Mt. Ulap but I passed the opportunity, I don’t have the guts to stand on that edge with no safety harness.

Then from the summit, we descended through those makeshift stairs which made it a little faster and little comfortable thou descending from any mountain for me is a bit more challenging and tiring than ascending.

We stop by what they call a local “Mini Stop”, a makeshift store who offers refreshment.
Then we continued with descending and finally reached the 9-kilometer mark that means our exciting journey it's just about to end.

  2. How old you can be? I am 59 years old but my mind convince me I can still scale mountains. I believe it's all in the mind. You can start with some easy one.
