Northern Stills: Kalinga and Cagayan


The scenic road from Tuguegarao to the province of Kalinga was already a treat before our of Lakbay Norte white water rafting activity in Chico River. We passed by the old Buntun Bridge which used to be the longest in the country before San Juanico Bridge was built, the vast rice fields of Solana and Enrile, and the highway of Cordillera going to Kalinga. Everything around us was of pure beauty and the best way to appreciate the picturesque scenery is by top loading on a jeepney 🙂

Here are more photos of our Kalinga and Cagayan leg of Lakbay Norte 3.
