Mount Ulap which is located in Itogon, Benguet is one unique mountain I have climbed. It is different from the lush jungle feel that I was used to. This one has a lot of pine trees and the path is wide and open. Hiking here can be very relaxing if you are not in a hurry. The weather is cool although there is not much shade to protect you from the sun but this place can get very cloudy and foggy in the afternoon. If you are aiming to get a clearing for your photos. I would suggest that you start your hike very early in the morning.
Luneta park is the go to place if you want to go somewhere relaxing in the capital city of the Philippines. It has a lot of open space where you can walk, jog or play. For those wanting to capture a dramatic photo the place always offers a great sunset. There are many theme parks like the Chinese garden where you can take photos as if you’re in China and at night you can watch the colorful musical fountain.

Mount Daraitan (August 13, 2016) is located at Tanay, Rizal and General Nakar, Quezon. It has a height of 739 meters above sea level. The mountain got rivers, waterfalls and lush trees. I didn’t see any wild animals there, so you can feel safe if they creep you out. Many locals depends on the opportunity that the mountain provides for work and you can feel how they love and take care of it.
