Mt. Pulag is the third highest mountain in the Philippines, standing at 2,922 masl (meters above sea level), after Mt. Apo in Davao (2,954 masl) and Mt. Dulang Dulang in Bukidnon (2,938 masl).
The government no longer allows camping during weekends in the mountain and promotes homestay instead for those who want to climb to the summit. There are plans to close the Ambangeg trail next year to let the mountain recover.
Breakfast at Banao's Stopover
Next stop was Jang-Jang Hanging bridge, 30 minutes away from Dmbuklao dam. Other tour groups would stop here for breakfast.
Jang-Jang is the longest hanging bridge in the Philippines made from steel.
It can only accommodate 10 people at a time, so make sure to arrive early for a good selfie or group photo.
Next was the Daclan Sulfur springs, another 30 minutes away from Jang-Jang.
We arrived at the DENR Station at around 9 am for the registration and a mandatory hiker's orientation.
