At last, I was able to encourage Lakwacherang Pilipina to join me on one of my treks..... after promising that this trek would be a very easy and light one. :) (Read her side of the Story HERE )
Though the travel part (Manila to Baguio to Atok, Benguet) consumed a lot of time but spending it with a friend...... Fun!
Reaching Jump off (KM 55, Atok Benguet) would require an earlier departure from Baguio City. Ride a taxi or Jeep that will bring you to GL-Lizardo Bus Terminal.
A 2 hours travel from Baguio to KM 55 will not bore you due to some postcard-scenic during the travel. Seriously, people up North are lucky. By the way, just remind the bus conductor or driver that you'll be off to KM 55.
Lkwacherang Pilipina @ first fork
On the right side of the road, you'll see the KM 55 marker and a signage "Welcome to Mummy Caves of Timbac" thus makes our jumpoff point.
The trail is basically easy, all you need to do is follow the cemented road. (Vegetation are abundant near the summit thus trucks and small vehicles needs a well paved road). What I loved about the trek was even though from jump off to summit we were totally exposed to Mr. Sun, the breeze..... the cool breeze of Benguet....aaahhh... sarap.
In every fork you'll see on the trail, always keep left until you passed Mongoto Elementary School. Few meters ahead the school another fork will be seen, choose the slope path to the right as this will lead you to summit. The road straight ahead will lead you to the Mummy Cave.
