    Mt. Kalugong is located in the town of La Trinidad, Benguet. The rock formation on top of the mountain is iconic because it resembles a Cowboy's hat. The word "kalugong" in the local dialect means the hat.

    The hiking trail is a piece of cake. The road leading to the park are paved and located in a highly urbanized area. When we were kids there were fewer houses and more trees. The Kalugong Eco Park is a new addition to the area and was used for dirt bike and motocross racing in the past. The entrance fee is 50 PHP, I hope they would give discounts to students, children and the elderly. The ...

    A Walk In The Mt Kalugong Eco Park

    The month of March marks the celebration of the Strawberry Festival of La Trinidad, Benguet, where I grew up and currently reside. As my way of celebrating the 2016 Panaspulan: La Trinidad Strawberry Festival, let me take you back to one of my revisits to one of La Trinidad's staples, Mt. Kalugong,just last month.
