Hundred Islands, Alaminos Pangasinan

I have been places in the Philippines, from top beaches, islands, mountains, etc. But there’s one place I haven’t been to which has been famous for years, since I was a kid if I’m not mistaken. That’s why I was ecstatic to have a chance finally on visiting the top tourist destination in Pangasinan – the Hundred Islands.  And I also got a chance to confirm if it’s really one hundred islands ;)

Hundred Islands National Park is located in the city of Alaminos in the province of Pangasinan. Several islands are scattered in Lingayen Gulf in the North-western part of Luzon, and some of it have been developed already for tourism which named as: Governor’s Island, Quezon Island, Marcos’ Island, etc. And up to today, it’s still growing and they are continue developing for more tourists to come.

Mt. Ulap - Philex Ridge Day Hike

Itogon City – to be found in the Cordillera Mountains of Benguet, well-known as the center of big mining companies like Philex Mining Company, Itogon-Suyoc Mining Company, Benguet Corporation, etc. – offers a lot of tourist attractions, natures, and adventures rather than those mining businesses. The town has a chain of hills having numerous mountain peaks and the highest of them is Mt. Ulap. 

Mt. Ulap, rising at 1846 MaSL is another spot to see for the mountaineers, hikers, adventure seekers, or even to those who are new into this kind of hobby. Its trail which is known as Ampucao – Sta. Fe Ridge Trail is recently becoming famous after some trail running events were held there. The trail can be trek in about 3 to 4 hours to reach the summit with a difficulty of 3/9.
