I am planning a Kibungan Mountain Range Trek by Uncharted Philippines for two date periods: Either Dec 3-6 or Dec 13-16. It is a very highly regarded trek off the beaten path. Details at [original link].
The price is $480 per person and is pretty much inclusive of everything. Is anyone interested in joining me? if so, let me know if you have a preferred date slot.
My email is . Thanks.
It sounds good but the price seems to be very high indeed. That is 23,000 pesos, 4 months salary for the simple worker.
I have looked at the prices of the Palawan, Tubattaha and Taal trips (places i know well)----the prices are really inflated, particularly the Taal trip! But if you HAVE THE MONEY TO BURN, GO FOR IT !
Sounds reasonable price 480$ (all inclusive) and located in Benguet where a beautiful scenery of rice terraces.....If I have the opportunity I would go with you, this is a kind of place where I want to go no other tourist around
Post your question on the links below, maybe you will find someone.....
If you made it there, write a review after your trek, I maybe do the trek next time when I'm in Philippines. I love Cordillera region, I even didn't know that trekking exist in the area
Thanks for your feedback. Do you know of similar treks that are more reasonable?
Hi. Like you, i want to avoid tourist areas at all costs. This company specializes in treks that avoid tourist areas. Hence the premium. From what i have read, its definitely worth it.
I am afraid not, so i guess you will have to go with the one you mention. I used to live up in that area but left there 21 years ago so i can offer no more advice.
However here is a website where you can start investigating.. Maybe you will come up with something else.
