Trip to Tinglayan, Kalinga Province

Trip to Tinglayan, Kalinga Province is long, steep, deep and winding road but the views are amazing! It is only 197 kilometers from Baguio but it was the longest 197 kilometers we've ever driven. Our average speed was 25 kilometers per hour. It took us more than 9 hours with few stops but we couldn't drive faster on those roads. It was hair-raising driving through there especially at night. Some of the roads are damaged due to landslides and  the roads are down to one lane.

It was an awesome adventure, a great journey, and a priceless experience. Thanks to our friend Haidee Abay for inviting us to her home and to her family. Also thanks to her dad, Ferdinand Abay, formerly mayor of  Tinglayan, her mom a business woman, her brother Charlie who is running for Vice Mayor and Charlie's family, thanks for a warm welcome, for giving their time, for great hospitality and for taking care of us. It sure made our experience awesome and we are very thankful. We stayed there for 3 nights. I will make a separate post for our white water rafting and spelunking trip.
