Popular Mountain for Hiking

Mount Ugu, Benguet

 

On the southern portion of the Cordilleras stands Mount Ugu. It became famous when a plane bound for Loakan airport crashed on its slopes back in 1987. Mountaineers who volunteered for the rescue operations found hidden beauty amid the disaster. Since then, may have ventured into the Cordilleras for this 2086 meter high mountain found between the municipalities of Itogon, Benguet and Kapaya, Nueva Viscaya. It is frequently visited due its closeness to Baguio City. Starting from Itogon, you’ll trek through long, dusty and sun-drenched trails until you reach the steep mountain trails overlooking cool valleys of thick pine forests. The summit features the tall mountain tops of the Cordillera, the rolling pine hills of Nueva Viscaya and the plains of Pangasinan.

 

How to get there: Fly to Manila then take a bus to Baguio City. From there, here a jeepney for Otogon, Benguet.

Coffee is also commonly served particularly kapeng barako, a variety of coffee produced in the mountains of Batangas noted for having a strong flavor.
