  • Packing list for Mt. Pulag

    Kabayan What to Pack

    Be sure to use a backpack with rain cover because the weather up in Mt. Pulag is very unpredictable! If your backpack has no rain cover, you can use large garbage bags to weatherproof your backpack's contents. This should be part of your packing list:1. Headlamp2. Flashlight3. Sleeping Bag4.

  • Respect for the Mountains

    Kabayan Local Customs

    The local tribes that call the foot of Mt. Pulag their home believe that the mountain is a mystical one. They believe that any wrong doing committed while up in the mountain will have consequences (bad weather, death and bad harvest). Loud noises, crass behavior and the like are frowned upon.

    MT. KABUNIAN (1,700 MASL)

    Has the privilege of being named after the Chief of the Cordillera gods, Kabunian. Some portions of the trail are a bit challenging for weekend warriors. It would require hands for scrambling around 45 degree steep trails with lots of ridge trekking with both or one side of the trail too steep for comfort. The trail has been established in ancient times by Ifugao traders bartering their local produce to the people on the other side of the mountain. There are trails leading to the bordering province of Ilocos Sur. The mountain has been considered sacred with burial grounds of the Bakun mummies. Also unique to these mountains are the burial jars of Bakun. The view from the top is awesome, giving you a 360 viewpoint of the surrounding environs.

    MT. LOBO

    There are 3 prominent peaks on what the locals calls Mt. Lobo. They have christened the two as Upper Lobo and Lower Lobo. The Upper Lobo has an elevation of 2,000 MASL, which locals claim as the highest point. But actually, the highest point is still the third unexplored and unnamed peak. The usual hiking destination is what they call the Lower Lobo. Both Upper and Lower can be climbed but as mentioned, hikers usually go to Lower Lobo due to its spectacular views. From Lobo, there is a trail to Brgy. Pobalcion. But it’s still best to climb Lobo from Dada going back to the jump-off after the climb. Then just take a local transport to and from Brgy. Poblacion.

    MT. TENGLAWAN

    Mt Tenglawan is also a challenging mountain to climb compared to Lobo. It may be more challenging than Kabunian if attempted from Brgy. Poblacion. The usually jump-off point for Tenglawan is Brgy. Sinacbat, but its way off the Ampusungan, Dada and Poblacion route. If you intent to do two or more climbs including Tenglawan, its better to set up base camp at Poblacion and climb Tenglawan from Poblacion. Mt. Tenglawan is one of the best places in western Benguet to get a view particularly of the Ilocos coastal lowlands.

    Equipment: No special equipment necessary.
