not much has been known of the province of Nueva Vizcaya. it is the province that connects the three major mountain range of Luzon namely Cordillera Mountain Range, Sierra Madre Mountain Range and Caraballo Mountain Range. thus it has a diverse flora and fauna and has a great mountainscape that includes one of the longest trek route to Mt. Pulag. here is a quick background of my first pick of the mountain series.

homaygad.all the while I thought never pakong naka-apak or say--nakatanaw sa NUEVA VIZCAYA--but when you said it cuold be reached by bus going to Tuguegarao or Banaue yun na.nalala ko na.gabi kasi byahe namin to Banaue dati so I was clueless na yun na pala yun. The moon was kinda bright that time though so I think i saw Dalton pass tas yung me unting zigzag. wanna go there uli na tanghaling tapat namn.hehehe
