Bontoc surprised me to find a hidden paradise that crossed our path using my spontaneous zero-itinerary trip to Northern Luzon. This crazy adventure resulted into the discovery of new wonders worth sharing to fellow outdoor enthusiasts.

After getting tipsy, we comfortably hit the sack early. There is no need for air conditioner as the temperature in Maligcong was freezing at night. I fell asleep in fetal position under all the blankets and bed cover I could find. We rested so deep as we need all the strength we can get for our next trip to the peak of Mt. Kofafey in Ang Tong Faw and that's next!
How to get to Maligcong,Bontoc?

From Banaue, we suggest for you to take the jeepney bound for Bontoc. It is just patiently waiting across the tourism office near the People's Lodge, fare was Php 150.00 each. You may also take the van bound for Sagada, just inform the driver to drop you in Bontoc near the Municipal Hall.
