A long, seemingly never-ending hike through some of the more pristine and beautiful Benguet trails.

Rated at 5 or 6 (out of 9) in the Philippine hiking trail difficulty scale, Mt. Ugu (or Ugo) is popular with more seasoned hikers as a traverse trail.

The best way to tackle this hike is to break it into two days (which is what I did), and stayed at a schoolhouse in the village of Domolpos. Expect heavy rains and crazy heat in the space of a few minutes; the right gear will dictate whether or not you enjoy this hike.

What I like most about Mt. Ugo is the fact that it’s not heavily crowded and the locals seem to take care of their trails. The pine forests are beautiful, and the sunrise is to die for. Forest fire damage is an ugly anomaly, but generally, this is a very enjoyable hike that is guaranteed to give you tons of amazing photos after.

The trail covers over 30km over steep and knee-shattering trails, so prepare your footwear accordingly. The best thing to do is to hike this with an adventure company (I can recommend one, just send a message).
