Hello my dear readers, today we will not talk about islands, beaches and popular attractions in the Philippines. I have written a lot about it and today I wanna show you another side of the islands because the Philippines consists of not only beaches and relaxing places. Instead I want to share with you some selection of the most beautiful mountains on the archipelago. Some of them you know, some of them are unfamiliar for you.

Since that time local people believe that the mountain has sacred energy and became a place of pilgrimage. A lot of tourists also believe in it and climbing to the peak of volcano become their dream, as well as swimming in the holy water of the waterfall, which hide inside the attraction. But not only waterfall attracts many people, also the cave. According to the old legend, if you want to clear yourself from sins, you need to come into the cave, go through it and go out on another side of the cave. If you get some scratches and scars during your walk inside, it means you are clear from the bad actions in your life and God forgive you but if you can’t find the exit and lost in the dark or die inside the cave, it means you were a bad person and didn’t pass the cleansing.

In my opinion, it is strange because during the road inside the cave you don’t have a light, you go in the full dark and, of course, you will injure yourself even if you don’t get lost. However, locals believe that it works. And I don’t want to speak about astonished view from peak surrounding it. I prefer you watch it with your eyes and get ready to climb on the Holy mountain.

#2. Mt Pulag, Benguet.

This is third highest mountain in the Philippines and one of the most beautiful. Lots of tourists want to visit the peak to watch «sea of clouds» on a day and Milky Way in the night. I have already written about one more location where you can watch sea of clouds, but this mountain is higher and bigger.

Moreover, on the foot of sleepy volcano, buried sacred settlements, which lived there a long time ago. Ancient inhabitants mummified dead people and put them in the cave on the foot of mount. Nowadays, it is one of reasons why the mountain is so attractive for major number of tourists. Everyone can see this burial and after climbing on the volcano to watch stunning sea of clouds or Milky Way.
