A very good description of the peak can be found on the Pinoy Mountaineer site at:
http://www.pinoymountaineer.com/2007/11/mt-napulauan-2642.html
To quote the page: "At the heart of the Cordillera mountain range rises perhaps its most formidable and enchanting mountain, Mt. Napulauan. Often associated with the memory of Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita, the “Tiger of Malaya” who sought refuge in its slopes, this mountain (also spelled ‘Napulawan’) possesses a mossy forest unrivalled in its primeval character, as well as trails that earns for it the reputation of being the most challenging in the Cordilleras, and arguably among the most difficult in the whole Philippines."
It is the northernmost of the three peaks of the Central Spine of the Cordilleras.
