Buscalan is a town in Kalinga.

Understand

Buscalan is one of my favorite villages to visit. It is very friendly and the hike up is breath taking.

Get in

You will need to get a guide either in Sagada or Bontoc. I reccomend using Francis Pain in Bontoc as he speaks the local language while guides from Sagada do not. You will take a jeepney from Bontoc for about an hour then hike another 40 minutes mostly uphill.

Get around

See

  • Whang Od, [1]. Truly an amazing woman and the clear highlight of the small town. She does many different tattoos. Be warned the technique she uses can be painful but you will get a unique souvenir from your visit to the Kalinga Mountains. 1000-2000 Pesos.

Eat

If you bring any live chickens up there they will be happy to slaughter it and serve it to you. The people are very accommodating and if you stay the night will likely cook you supper and make coffee.

Drink

Alcoholic drinks are prohibited by a decree in the village.
