Mt. Pulag: The sky’s the limit in the Playground of the Gods

This year, I was awarded an unobstructed panoramic view of the celestial dome when I made the trip to Mt. Pulag. One of the Philippines’ highest peaks, travelers and mountaineers alike flock to Mt. Pulag as it is the best place to catch the sunrise and the sunset.

When you’re up there, you’ll literally be surrounded by a sea of clouds and the view is simply stunning.

It’s no wonder at all that the mountain is known as the playground of the gods because I can totally imagine all the diwatas and anitos of Philippine mythology playing Langit-Lupa here. (Langit-Lupa or Heaven-Earth is a Filipino chasing game where players are immune from being tagged when on an elevated surface.)

Maybe Zeus and his Olympus posse could even join in on the fun. Haha.
