It’s a long, arduous trip to get to Buscalan Village to meet the legendary Apo Wang od. When you take the over 8 hour bus ride from the city of Manilla to Kalinga, then add another 4 hours of top load ride on a minibus through the canyons of endless, towering mountains, plus a near an hour hike into the waterfalls leading to the village situated on top of the mountains - you are looking at 15+ hours of travel time. This is excluding the waiting time, unforeseen events and breaks in between roads minus the guard rails and heavy traffic on the highways. There are two main routes to reach this destination; first is Manila to Bontoc, Mountain Province to Tinglayan, Kalinga. Another is Manila to Tabuk City, Kalinga to Tinglayan, Kalinga. Once I finally got there, I was treated to a homestay with one of the families. This adorable lady was the one who brought me my dinner on my first night there.
