Ifugao - Mt. Province - Benguet 2017 Tour

Image
Long before the advent of social media, going to the inner municipalities of Ifugao, Mt. Province, and Benguet requires extensive research, patience, and luck. Today, one can easily visit these places simply by availing tour packages offered by different travel companies online. 

My wife and I took this opportunity to avail of the Sagada Tour Package of Travel Galore. For us, this tour package is a total blessing. Just to share... half a decade ago, we planned a do-it-yourself trip to Sagada.

It was commisioned by the Lions Club of Baguio City. So what's behind the giant lion's head sculpture? The story goes that years ago when tourists started to flock Baguio City by means of Kennon Road, they used a large rock, which is naturally shaped like a lion, as a landmark that they are near Baguio City. Due to its popularity, the city government decide to "remodel" the large rock so that it would literally be known as the Lion's Head. Construction of the present day landmark began in 1968.
