BASILAN: A Day of Bliss and Disaster

Basilan, the largest island of Sulu archipelago, is located off the coast of Zamboanga City. Interestingly, Basilan is included among ARMM provinces but its capital, Isabela City belongs to Region 9 (Zamboanga Peninsula). So provincial affairs are being held in Isabela City while regional affairs are held in Lamitan City. The two cities, which are 45 minutes apart, interest tourists with its countless natural attractions. Like other islands in the country, Basilan is beautifully crafted and is worth a visit.

MT. KAPPUGAN: Duo Trek to Kiangan's Silent Peak

Mt. Kappugan in Kiangan, Ifugao towers 1,305 meters ASL. You might haven't heard of the mountain. Or even the town of Kiangan. Ifugao is not all about the most popular Banaue. Mt. Kappugan is not really popular but trekking to this mountain is truly worth it. Besides, this is just among the many destinations in Kiangan, among others are Ifugao Museum, WWII Shrine, Nagacadan Rice Terraces, Panggagawan Cave, Kiangan Living Museum Uttu Falls and Ambuwaya Lake. Now I'm enumerating enough reasons to visit Kiangan.
