2 Days 1 Night
Nestled at the foot of the mighty Mt. Pulag is the small and quiet town of Kabayan. This town, known as being mysterious and even eerie, is home to multiple burial caves and the famous Kabayan Mummies but aside from this it secretly hides 4 lakes that are equally mysterious and filled with local folklore and mythology.
These lakes, surrounded by pine and mossy forests and mountains are scenic and peaceful making it ideal for a relaxing camping experience with good friends. At night the sky opens up to a multitude of stars shining brightly, setting the mood for a session of catching a shooting star or just simply sitting by the camp light to exchange stories or to hear your local guides share tales of their forefathers who once ruled the area. All this while you enjoy a warm cup of coffee or a good meal together with amazing company. A perfect and meaningful adventure.
In addition to the lakes we will also be visiting Mt. Timbak, one of the highest peaks in the cordilleras and home to some burial caves.
The hiking required in this adventure is relatively light and pleasant making it ideal for beginner hikers who want to experience camping outdoors.
