A short overview:
Home of the well known tradition tattoo artist Apo Whang-od, Buscalan is now a famous travel destination to travelers who wants to experience a simple life away from the fast paced reality in the city.
The small village of Buscalan residing in the mountains of Cordillera, is surrounded by the majestic mountain views and abundant rice terraces.

Our meetup place will be at McDonalds, Shaw Boulevard in Greenfield District (map https://goo.gl/ixVjYu), 08:00 PM. Our route will be via Banaue-Bontoc which is aroun 10-12 hours travel from Manila.
From Bontoc, that will be another 1-2 hours of travel before we reached the “turning point” going to the village. It will be a 30 minutes to 1 hour trek and we will be passing by a narrow trail and some waterfalls along the way. Once we’ve crossed the bridge and reach the waterfall, that will be the start of the assault trail going up to the village.
Once we reached the village, you are free to explore the whole place, relax and enjoy the view surrounding you. Meetup will the locals and learn about their culture.
