Perhaps one of the most exciting mountains to visit in the Codillera region is Mt. Purgatory. What made the hike more interesting is the idea of traversing through six peaks that comprise of several mountain ranges.
Sandwiched between Mt. Ugo and Mt. Pulag, this northern mountaineering gem contributes to the beauty of the region. With it’s “living trails”, cool mossy forests, and spectacular views, I can say that Mt. Purgatory is one of the Philippine hiking destinations that is worth going back to.
