FUN THINGS TO DO
Benguet offers a lot of fun things to do when you are there. Some of them are:
The best-preserved mummies are in the Timbac Caves. Located about 1200m above Kabayan proper, these are Kabayan’s most sacred caves. Aside from the mummies, the grueling climb from Kabayan town to Timbac caves entertains hikers with majestic views of the Agno river valley and a stopover at the Tinongchol Burial Rock, a three-storey high boulder where ancient Ibaloi carved out holes to inter their dead in wooden coffins.
Strawberries sold in Baguio City come from the farms in La Trinidad, a 15 minute jeepney ride from Baguio. During harvest season, these farms are open to the public where one can experience actual picking of the fruit.
Since the farms are tilled/owned by different farmers, improvised fences were put up as boundaries/separators. However, they have standard price per kilo or basket (but you can always try to haggle). Pre-picked strawberries cost P100/kilo, while it costs P200/kilo if you will be the one to pick the strawberries. The 100% difference is the price you have to pay for the “experience”.
Revel in a Hot Spring
Since Baguio is known for a cold climate would you believe that it is still possible to swim in Baguio and it has a hot spring resort. So after the exhausting touring around the city why not spend the last day dipping on the hotspring resort.
