At dawn, most of the time, the mountain top is surrounded by a sea of clouds when the fog is rising from the valleys left and right at twilight. As the Legend told our ancestors had a different name in their folklore for the mountains where there are living in.
Around February 1, 1939, after a preliminary survey was done by the engineer named "LAGMAN" along the old mountain path finally named the third and highest peak at 1,846 m above sea level on the Ampucao Santa Fe Ridges was called "ULAP" and the Summit Marker was placed on the peak.

What is Mt. Ulap known for? : Mount Ulap, a mountain peak that mountaineers also called the summit, is a hiking paradise for young and old.
With a towering height of 1864 Meters above sea level.
People come from all over the compass, and regardless of their social background, people move to the mountains on weekends and holidays to breathe the fresh and clean mountain air to reduce the stress of modern life.


How many km is Mt ulap?: Clarification, Mt. Ulap is a Mountain Peak and not a hiking trail.

What province is Mt. Ulap?: With a towering height of 1846 meters above sea level. The Mount Ulap Summit is located within the Ampucao Santa Fe mountain ranges in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Benguet Province, Philippines.


Evolution: During the past 2.5 million years, continents shifting and colossal ice sheets gripped the globe, perhaps 15 different times. Glaciers sculpted about one-third of the earthโ€™s landmass. Tectonic plates are in motion, vulcanos lifting landmasses and creating a mountain range.

The Cordillera Mountains are not where archaeologists find ancient graves or hidden treasures nor the destination for dinosaur fossils or remains of other species that we have not seen for millions of years.

In other words, there were no dinosaurs in the Philippines because, in the first place, there was no Philippines during the time of the dinosaurs. The Philippines came into existence as an archipelago about ten million years ago, during the Pleistocene Epoch. The first Philippine island likely surfaced nearly 60 million years ago โ€“ about five million years after the last of the dinosaurs died out.
