Located in Brgy. Dalupirip in Itogon, Benguet, Mt. Pigingan stands at 1328MASL+ and is a difficult climb, especially for beginners. It requires 5-6 hours of walking before reaching the summit, and the trail is quite challenging but the view along the way is really spectacular. Every angle, every stop is perfect for a photoshoot. The view is truly and absolutely breathtaking. The best part of the trail is when you reach the pine forest. It truly is perfect, and once you reach the summit, it will offer the best view of Itogon.

As for me, I can confidently say that this is the best mountain in Benguet. To find out more what Benguet has to offer, watch the video above.
