Guide is recommendable but in our case we did not hire someone to guide us. We just followed the electric cable lines up to the summit.
First trip to Barlig via jeepney is 12 noon.
Last Trip to Bontoc via jeepney is 11 am.
According to some post; there is a 100.00 fee on the usage of the bunker, however, nobody charged us a single centavo.
This itinerary is applicable for small groups on a tight budget only.
