The Green Road

Mount Kabunian connects Ilocos Sur and Benguet in the northern Philippines and serves as trading route despite of its high altitude and zero-visibility when the fog gets thick. The mountain is considered as sacred because it is believed to be the home of one of the gods of the local people, thereby protecting the landscape and maintaining its magnificence. The ridge trail system provides a glimpse of a nearby ancient burial site adorned with log coffins.
