Bontoc is a city in Mountain Province.

Understand

Bontoc is a gateway to up north and to other prime locations such as Banaue and Sagada. Its a small town which is easy to figure out and walk around.

Get in

Baguio to Bontoc:

GL Lizardo Bus, departs 8am, 10am &2:30pm Governor pck Rd. Baguio City, 220 Pesos


D'Rising Sun Buses, departs 5am -1pm Slaughter House Compound Baguio City, 220 Pesos

Manila to Bontoc

Cabletours, departs 8:30 pm the bus terminal is inside the Trinity University of Asia Campus at E. Rodriguez Ave. Cubao, Quezon City, 600 Pesos

Get around

Its very easy just to walk around the main street and find everything you need. Tricycles here are cheap and I have never had a hassle paying the local rate.

See

  • Maligcong Rice Terraces.
  • Mainit Hot Springs.


Do

  • Bontoc Museum. Bontoc museum is a must see if your only stopping briefly into town. Its has many great pictures and artifacts from the Kalinga tribes.
  • Francis Pain (Local Guide), Churya-a Hotel, 09157690843. Francis is a great guide who knows 13 local dialects, he will take you up from Bontoc to the Kalinga tribes. I recommend checking out Buscalan where you can see Whang Od perform traditional tattoos as well as other very remote villages.

Buy

Sagada weaving products and other cordillera souvenirs at the mountain outlet store. Above the market square, behind the landbank in the multipurpose building.

Eat

  • Etag. dried salted meat
  • dog meat. yeah they serve dog menus in some of the karinderias there

Arik restaurant & snackhaus': BEST PANCAKES in cordillera, Php 15 with butter and sweeten condensed milk, brewed coffee Php 10. green building on the second floor at the very end of town, on the left hand side, past the market, past the mountain provenience college, next to where the Jeepney's leave for Kalinga.

  • HABAWEL koykeis lechon manok, Bontoc Poblacion.
  • HABAWEL AGRIVET (AND GENERAL MERCHANDISE), Bontoc Poblacion (just across SUMMIT BANK). KOYKEIS LECHON MANOK


Drink

  • Cable Cafe, (right beside cable tours). This is your really only option for drinking in town. It has some great live music there and has a friendly atmosphere.
  • Central Point, Samoki. The only bar I saw which I can say is the classiest in town...
  • Kidlaa Hotel and Restaurant, Samoki. a pretty decent bar with live bands.


Sleep
