Before 2016 ends, I decided to reserve a slot for Mt. Pulag trek. A year-end getaway on the cold month of December. Yes, you read it right! I climbed Mt. Pulag on the coldest month of the year. I wanted to experience the thrill of Mt. Pulag’s wind chilling and freezing cold weather. I needed a serious preparation for this kind of extreme adventure because of the unpredictable weather condition at the top of the mountain. This Mt. Pulag experience was the toughest yet the most humbling hike I ever had. An amazing climb that was worth the struggle. Yes, the struggle was real! One of the hardest and coldest but best climb I had for 2016.
