With a towering height of 2,922 meters, Mt. Pulag is Luzon's highest mountain. Located in the Cordillera mountain range of Benguet, it holds the record of being the third highest mountain in the Philippines, with the first two highest being Mt. Apo, and Mt. Dulang-Dulang, which are both located in Mindanao.

To get to Mt. Pulag from Manila, you can take the Victory Liner bus going to Baguio City.  The trip usually lasts for six hours if there is no traffic jam. From Baguio City, take the Norton bus going to Akiki Trail jump-off in Kabayan, Benguet. It will take another six hours to get there from Baguio City. It could be a long and tiring journey, but the spectacular view of the jagged cliffs from the zigzagged roads will make you forget about the passing hours.

After registering at the DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources) office, you can begin to trek towards the first camp site beside the Eddet River. Usually, the DENR office will brief you about rules and regulations to follow during the climb, and give one trekking guide for every six persons. The trail is steep and dark and cold. But it is quite pleasant to have to sleep with the soothing sound of the Eddet river.

South of Leyte is the final border of the Visayas before you can reach Mindanao, the large island in the South of the Philippines. Therefore, it is not a crowded place for tourism and it is still mainly untouched.

However, many foreigners have invaded the shores lately and have started building hotels and resorts. Yet, they are trying to respect the beaches and the landscape.
