After having a successful hike at Mt. Maculot in Batangas, it took us (with Mei) a month to schedule another mountain to climb because of our busy work, while on the other hand our new found friends whom we met at our first hike keep hiking almost every week.
Mei and I accept the challenge to hike the Mt. Ulap considering we don’t have that much experience in hiking compared to them, but I guess that’s what life all about it’s about challenges.
Mt. Ulap is 1846masl compared to Mt. Maculot 903masl (summit) 706masl (Rockies) it’s fun because of the difference and also quite worrying considering that it is our second hike of the year, they say Mt. Ulap is not that hard because of its trail and a cold weather.
We begin the climb around 8 o’clock in the morning; Mei and I together with others bought a stick just to make sure, I mean I don’t want to take for granted the trek even though they say it’s not that hard, preparedness is the key.
Mt Ulap is located in Itogon Benguet and we take the Eco trail hike. It is about 8 kilometers climb and it is good for beginners trust me, majority of the climb is more of walking on the hill up and down. The cool weather is a big help throughout the hike. At the end of the day the hike was fun, a tiring experience, a memorable and a must try adventure.
