Touch the Clouds at Mt. Ulap in Itogon, Benguet

One of the peak areas in Mount Ulap hike, Itogon, Benguet
We weren’t that tired although we visited one of the highest elevations in the greater region of Baguio. That is because the “hike” to Mt. Sto. Tomas didn’t require as calories to burn to reach Café in the Sky. The road to Café in the Sky is already well paved so to get there, you only need to commute via jeepney from Baguio and hire an FX to bring you on top and have a coffee in the café.

A Taste of Coffee and Clouds at Café in the Sky, Mt. Sto. Tomas, Tuba, Benguet

The overlooking view of Baguio City from Cafe in the Sky, Tuba, Benguet
This was my first out of town trip after I set foot in Manila from a very long flight coming from the lands of southern hemisphere. I embraced my longings with my ever loving home province of Tarlac and when a friend of mine planned to visit Baguio City for the nth time again, I did not think twice—I packed my backpack with good old time jackets, took enough cash and got myself ready for another five-hour trip. Not soon enough, I was back to the city where popular pine trees grow and strawberries are celebrated.

Baguio Suggested One-Day Itinerary (Balikan)

For those who are “nagmamadali” or those who have other places to check out aside from Baguio City, one day itinerary will work for you. Although one day is not enough to see all the tourist spots in Baguio, it is already good for people who only have a day to taste the weather, food, and culture of Baguio City.

How to Get to Baguio Attractions: Cemetery of Negativism and Bell Amphitheater

How to Go to Camp John Hay:

To go to Camp John Hay, please read my other post on how to get to John Hay.

How to Get to Cemetery of Negativism and Bell Amphitheater:

From the entrance of Camp John Hay, just walk straight, until you see signage going to Treetop Adventure. When you reach Treetop Adventure, Cemetery of Negativism is just nearby, and the Bell Amphitheater is beside it.

On going back, I do suggest you to ride taxi back to town since you are already tired. Otherwise, you can reach the entrance to Camp John Hay and ride a jeep back to downtown.

Warming Ourselves inside the Historical Core - Bell House (Baguio)

Inside the Historical Core - Bell House in Camp John Hay, Baguio
Bell House is more of a creepy house than a historical museum. It’s because we arrived there already in the evening and the pine trees outside plus the chilly air sum up the setting as something more mysterious. The historical house turned museum should not be missed—if you want more of what Baguio feels like in the time of its beginning.
