Mt. Arayat: The Most Popular Mountain in Pampanga!

Mt. Arayat  is one of the popular mountains in the Central Luzon region. It's an extinct stratovolcano, which has no recorded historical eruption.  The mountain is famous for its tale of the Kampangan sun god, known as diwata Mariang Sinukuan, counterpart of Mariang Makiling.

The TrailMadness group, which founded by sir Kiko,  invited me to join their Mt. Arayat  hike in Pampanga. I always see this mountain everytime I travel to the north ( which can be seen afar from NLEX, North Luzon Expressway). I heard a lot of good things about this mountain from my mountaineer friends and travel bloggers. Honestly,  I'm not really interested on the story of Mariang Sinukuan, but what I'm curious about is the trail going to the summit and traverse part of the mountain.
