A climb with my bff Jefferson at Mt. Ulap. We almost not make it because the event we joined in FB got cancelled just a day before the set date. But since our VLs were already filed and we’re kind of adventurous that time, we decided to make a DIY itinerary instead. So we did a quick research and talked/chat with friends for help.
Anyway, here is the itinerary, estimated cost and some photos during the trip.
2300-0500 Baguio City
- Hotdogs in Sison, Pangasinan stop over
0500-0600 Breakfast, etc.
0600-0700 Waiting mapuno ang jeep
- 0730-0800 Registration, orientation, preparation
- 0800 Start trek
- The famous mark of Mt. Ulap
- 0900 First peak/Ambanao-Paway
- 1030 Second peak/Gungal
- 1130 Third peak/Mt. Ulap summit
- The cows of Mt. Ulap, gives a New Zealand-ish feels 😀
1200 Camp Site 2
1200-1400 Rest, lunch, etc.
- You’ll never starve with this sari-sari store near Camp Site 2
1400 Start descend
1530-1600 Wash, change clothes
1600-1700 Jeep waiting time to Baguio City
1700 side trip na sa Baguio! Haha..
Check in at hotel, malling in SM, dinner, nightlife or just rest.
Day 2 – Free and easy
After breakfast, we chose to go to Bencab Museum since it ranked no.1 in TripAdvisor as top place to visit in Baguio, althought it’s located in Tuba already which is 15mins away from city proper. Since it’s an art gallery/museum, it is very instagrammable and a must go for the millenials. 😂 ✌
Ballast 1, 2 and 3
Morning Bath My most favorite painting in Bencab Museum
Yes, there’s a garden at the back of the museum.
Go back to hotel for checkout and head to Ketchup Community, a food park-ish place, for lunch. We ate at Rancho which serves Pinoy dishes. And their best sellers are Sisig Bagnet and Pinakbet with Bagnet.👍
After lunch, you can stroll in the very nearby Wright Park and The Mansion.
Ride a jeepney headed to Mine’s View Park and alight in Good Shepherd Convent to buy pasalubong. Then ride a taxi going to Victory Liner Bus Terminal.
