    Hi! My kids and I were planning to visit those places in La trinidad Benguet. Can you please help me on our itinerary?

    • Daniel's Eco-Travels

      sure maam Janette:) pero which specific places would you visit:) since you have kids, i would suggest that you first visit Mt Kalugong since its very fit for family activities…after that, you can proceed to Strawberry Farm and move on to BSU…if you still have time, you can catch sunrise at Mt Yangbew…

      • Janette Reyes

        Possible na Mt Kalugong then traverse to Yangbew?

        Our plan kasi is city tour on saturday and trekking on Sunday.

        Thanks for your immediate response.

        • Daniel's Eco-Travels

          havent tried the traverse pero i think it would be possible…try asking the personnel at Mt Kalugong…there might a be a traverse trail from there going to the road leading to sitio Binat of Tawang…Binat is the jump-off point to Mt Yangbew…or if there is none, climb down to Cruz and ride a taxi to sitio Binat……hope that helps:)
