the BANAUE-Bontoc link.....

......we left Hapao 6:30am so as to catch the one and only jeepney ride to Bontoc which leaves at 8:30 am. Otherwise, we can take our chances on buses passing by Banaue at no definite intervals.It will take another 2.5 hours of fun ride to get to BONTOC, the capital of Mountain Province for the cost of 150php.

the one and only jeepney trip for the day----yung red.hehe

Some usually take this route to Sagada as it passes directly trough the viewpoints of BANAUE rice terraces. After the ascend, your eyes will feast into different views so be sure to keep them wide open coz you don't want to miss the scene.

imperfections like this one actually adds beauty to the place....

steep but picturesque.....

soil erosion, nature's way of keeping the balance....

...and as they say, life is a journey, not a destination. In this particular trip, I made it a point to meet new friends. I know it's our honeymoon but the world is not just about the two of us. We are here to explore, not just the place, but the people and in the process, get to understand ourselves more and our relationship....naks.

Different mountain, different scenery. All a pleasure to look at......

terraces still dot many areas where small communities are located....

Pine trees give me a different sensation....they communicate and tell me, I'm in a different place...

those tress are lining up as if they're climbing the hill one by one....

a journey with a thousand mountains begin with a single step......

simply beautiful.....

Honestly, I like this route far better than the Sagada-Baguio link. The zigzags are less ruthless and the view is far more diverse and pleasing to the eyes.....


..............next stop: Sagada

  8. princess_dyanie---kulang kulang 2 hours na lang from banaue to Bontoc and then Bontoc to Sagada is 45 minutes....okay lang ang zigzag, kasi medyo mabagala ang dyip at unti lang yung talanag malala ang curve. mas nakakahilo yung Sagada to Baguio---6 hours na walang patid na zigzag.yun ang kailangan mong i-bonamine ng 2.hehe
