Benguet

Benguet is part of the Cordillera mountain range, and home to the ,Ibaloi and Kankanai, the two tribes are usually called the Igorot. La Trinidad Valley is considered the Salad Bowl of the Philippines with its numerous vegetable plantation. The second highest peak in the Philippines, 2,930 meter-high Mount Pulog is a favorite mountaineering mecca due to its unique vegetation ranging from alpine grassland.

Kabayan, home of Timbac Caves, is world-famous for its mummified corpses ("laughing mummies") found in various burial caves and estimated to be hundreds of years old. The complicated art of mummification has actually been lost, making these specimens priceless. Other specimens are displayed at the municipal museum and at the provincial capitol in La Trinidad. Other provincial attractions include Mount Data, Ambuklao Lake and Binga Lake. The mighty Cordillera mountain ranges are home to diverse cultural minorities and some of the Philippines’ most beautiful landscapes.
