  • Maligcong A DIY Weekend Itinerary 2D 1N Itinerary Expenses And Tips

    Paradise found, forgotten and reborn is the story of Maligcong, an upper barangay of Bontoc in Mountain Province, eight kilometers away from the town proper. It used to be the show window of the town but it went into a lull until social media triggered its recent reborn.

    Maligcong is the Kankana-ey term that means “surrounded by rice paddies”, as the village sits in the middle of rice terraces, hailed as among the most beautiful in the entire Cordillera Region. The rice terraces are best viewed from the two vantage points – Mount Fato and Mount Kufafey.

    Maligcong is just a thirty-m ...

  • Bontoc Caneo Weaving Wonders

    Tig tig tak! Tig tig tak!" I hear the sound of the loom beaters colliding. Creating a rhythmic beat as a weave of pattern slowly forms. I watch Auntie Benita busy with her loom at the balcony of her house overlooking the roof of her neighbors along with the high mountains hugging their village of Caneo (sometimes Can-eo). Her ever watchful grand daughter Shakira stays by her side. Observing how she skillfully coordinates her motions, from pedaling the treadles to shuffling the shuttle between the threads. Much like Shakira, Benita learned how to weave watching her mother as she grows up. Tradi ...

  • Exploring Mountain Province Maligcong Bontoc And Sagada

    I've been fascinated by Mountain Province even before the hit film, That Thing Called Tadhana, made one of its municipalities, Sagada, a word-of-mouth for people of all ages. Some friends, either travelers or not, have already experienced the said Cordillera province and the common thing that they tell me about the place is that it's beautiful, more so when it wasn't yet bombarded with people. Anyhow, I'm still excited about going here especially that I was also planning to visit the beautiful terraces of Maligcong that is found in the capital municipality of Mountain Province, Bontoc. Despite ...

  • DOT To Promote Mountain Province For Indigenous Tourism

    Tourism Undersecretary Falcony Millar said the province is one of the preferred destinations for cultural tourism in recognition of the rich culture, tradition and heritage that were preserved over the past several decades.

    Millar, who was given the name "Farnatan" or a team leader during his recent visit, said scenic tourist spots and low-cost leisure experiences are not sufficient to attract the influx of local and foreign visitors. What is important, he added, is the emotion that goes with the industry, which is found in the province's rich culture and traditions.

  • Mount Kupapey And Maligcong Rice Terraces In Bontoc Mount Province

    Maligcong is a picturesque, rugged village in Bontoc, Mt. Province. I remember many years ago, Jec, Jen and I had merienda cena at Goldfish Café in Bontoc town proper. The name of the café was intriguing, given that it is right at the very heart of a mountainous province. Nope there weren't aquariums nor a live gold fish inside, but there hanging on its wall was a large monochromatic photo of a breathtaking rice terraces. Our server said that it is the Maligcong Rice Terraces. And that its beauty could rival that of Banaue's. The terraces is known for its stone walls which make them sturdy a ...

  • Mountain Province Maligcong Rice Terraces A Traverse

    It was inevitable. We had to do something while in Maligcong. It was on our third day of doing nothing and the pressure was building. Guests at the homestay were coming and going, and us, we were still sitting our asses off, alternating between cold beer and hot mountain coffee in between meals at the veranda. Our host was already harried, wanting to guide us herself to the peaks of Mount Kupapey for the sunrise and Mount Fato for the sunset. We were unfazed. But yes, we have to at least do something while in Maligcong.

    And so it was that one morning as the rain finally abated to a very lig ...
