In the 1940s, the relentless Japanese soldiers swept through the Philippines, leaving a trail of chaos in their wake. During this time, Imperial Japanese Army General Tomoyuki Yamashita, known as the fearsome "Tiger of Malaya," commanded the Shobo Group in Northern Luzon. As the tides turned against them, Yamashita's forces were compelled to retreat from Manila and seek refuge in the mountains.
Amidst the stunning landscapes of the Ifugao province, where history intertwines with nature's majesty, you will conquer the formidable Mt Napulawan. Towering at a breathtaking height of 2,642 meters above sea level, this mountain stands as a testament to the courage and resilience displayed by both sides during those fateful days.
Imagine standing atop the summit, gazing out at the panoramic views that stretch across the land. To the west, you'll marvel at the sight of Boguis Benguet and the majestic Mt Pulag, while the eastern horizon reveals the awe-inspiring peaks of Mt Amuyao and Mt Polis. It is here, amidst the swirling clouds and ethereal fog, that the Japanese Empire made its last stand before Yamashita's historic surrender in Kiangan on September 2, 1945.
