  • Much smaller than I expected. There are many steep, and uneven steps to get around. If you like the feeling of being in a jungle, this is the place for you. If not, there is not much to see other than...  more »

  • Just don't go here when the fog is thick, there's supposedly a great view of a part of the South China Sea and a river on the viewing deck and there's supposedly a bit more hike up the side of the mountain. Nonetheless, it's a short but very informative tour about tribal art, history, architecture, culture and traditions. Plus you can bring home some goods crafted by the tribe from their souvenir shop.
  • It is great place! But too small. They have a biggest dream catcher I ever seen. And some arts from tribe are so beautiful. P.S don't go up. Nothing there in upper view point.
  • Truly a place to see in La Trinidad that preserves cultural heritage. Seniors may find it a challenge with steep climbs and stairs. But for those I saw after visiting the place, surely felt glad to have done so. Park your vehicles along the side of the road and will be asssited by attendants. PUJ's are also available for commuters. Your next stop should be Mount Costa.
  • We visited December 2017. There's really not much to see aside from very few interesting things plus the hike. They should either develop it or at least lessen the fee so they could attract more people.
  • A reproduction of the Village of the Natives, Wherein, The roads are accessible only by humans but not of gasoline fed vehicle, Prepare for somekind of short hiking skills.

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
