Mount Yangbo, also known as Little Pulag, Mount Jambo, Mount Yangbaw, Mount Tawang, is in fact a series of high-rolling hills and serrated located in Barangay Tawang, La Trinidad, Benguet.

Jambo), Tayawan view deck and Mt. Kalugong. These are all beginner-friendly or as the younger Pinoy millenials would say, pabebe-friendly.

It was a cloudy Sunday morning. Low-lying clouds and mists have descended into the La Trinidad valley. So I decided to climb Mt.
