We spent 3 days and 2 nights in the Mountain Province of the Philippines on our visit in January. This entire area was so beautiful. High ridges and mountains with beautiful valleys. Lots of pine trees and ferns. Reminded me of the PNW in some of the areas.

Our visit took us past Banaue, which is home to the amazing rice terraces. Built my hand almost 2000 years ago, they covered the entire mountain side and are still used today.

Our destination was Sagada and it was wonderful. A mountain town built on the mountainside, it reminded me of Jerome or Bisbee AZ. Not commercialized at all, this place still retains some real charm. Lots of tourists, but mostly locals.

This hike was to see the sunrise on Marlboro Hill, just outside Sagada. The hike followed an old jeep road for most of the way up, but near the top, you take a trail up. The view up top was amazing. The valley below fills up with fog and mist every morning. It did just that when we were there too. There are rice terraces and small villages along the hillside and the valley below. Lots of people make the short hike up to see the sunrise. Not much color as the clouds were scare, but the mist filled valley and the scenery were amazing!

An amazing experience for sure.
