Bakun Trio

Book Now!

Overview

Sitting on a plateau in the middle of the Cordilleras, the small town of Bakun,Benguet is the perfect setting for a three-day mountain adventure. With its poblacion serving as a base camp, climbers can go on day-hikes to any of the three surrounding mountains: Mt. Lubo with its dense forests, Mt. Kabunian and its hallowed grounds, and Mt. Tenglawan with its long and arduous hike.

Bakun Trio is a three-in-one package, with each mountain offering different experiences and varying degrees of difficulty. But the beauty of the setting and the excitement on the trail are constant. Expect to traverse hanging bridges over raging rivers, see cascading waterfalls splashing down the verdant landscape, and even visit a sacred burial ground shrouded in mist. Of course, breathtaking views from each of the summits are mandatory.

At the end of each day-hike, you’ll be able to take a shower, eat a warm meal, and sleep on a good bed back at the Bakun poblacion. There’s nothing like a hot mug of chocolate in the chilly Cordillera air to cap off a day of adventure.

Did you know?
Mt. Kabunian is named after the highest deity on the Kankana-ey and Ibaloi pantheon of gods. Kabunian is the father of lesser gods and all of mankind.
