The Mystery of the Mount Ulap Summit Marker

📌 A long time ago, hunters and gatherers began living here. As the Legend told our ancestors had a different name in there folklore for the mountains where there are living in.

✅ Then about Feb. 01. 1939 ago, after a preliminary Surveying was done an Engineer name "LAGMAN" finally the third and highest peak with 1846mASL on the Ampucao Sta. Fe Ridges was named "ULAP" and the Summit Marker was erected on the highest peak.

📌 Most of the mountain Summits in Europe a Summit cross is erected which is a cross on the summit of a mountain or hill that marks the top. Often there will be a summit register (Gipfelbuch) at the cross, either in a container or at least a weatherproof case.

However, the summit cross is not exclusively of religious symbolism. In the 16th century, the crosses also functioned to mark alpine and community borders.
