It's our first adventure with my partner for this year 2016 and we set this trip the day before our 11th monthsary as our celebration. Due to rampant promotions in social media, the undeniably beautiful rock formation in this mountain became one of the best spot for photo op. We decided to hike this popular mountain in Cordillera, the Mount Ulap which located in Itogon Benguet. This scenic view of famous rock formation the "Gungal Rock" is one of the landmark and "stop over" before we reach the summit.
We also invited some of our hiking/travel buddies who liked low budget trip. Fortunately they're interested with the destination that we chose. Friday night January 22nd, our group met at Victory Liner bound to Baguio, we left by 9:30PM and arrived around 3:30AM, it was almost 6 hours of travel time. I’ve been in Baguio for many times, sadly I can’t memorize some part of the place because I’m dependent riding a cab. After our light breakfast in 7'eleven, we went to Lakandula Street, it's beside Centermall and Jollibee where we found the terminal jeep going to Barangay Ampucao Itogon Benguet. The challenging part by commute especially when you are in tight budget is that you need to wait the jeepney until its filled with passengers and occupy all the seats.
