Mt. Pulag National Park

Located on the Philippine Cordillera Mountain Range, Mt. Pulag is the highest peak of Luzon Island with rugged, steep slopes and rolling mountain peak. It is characterized by vertical vegetation including pine forests on rocky slopes, moist mossy forest on mountainside lower elevations, and grass and dwarf forest at the peak. The park is home to endemic orchids and nepethenses and threatened mammals and rare wildlife.

Mt. Pulag is the highest peak in Luzon island (the third highest in the Philippines), and is arguably the most effectively managed National Park in the country. It is being nominated under (ix) and (x) biodiversity - and rightly so, as this site best represents a unique array of endemic flora and fauna of the Cordillera Biogeographic Zone.
Despite its mighty height, Pulag is one of the country's easiest hikes. The grassland peak can be reached within 5-6 hours of gentle trek.
