Our trip to Ambuklao Dam was sponsored by Azalea Residences Baguio, who happens to be our hotel partner during our First Baguio Blog Conference held on May 19, 2012.

Planning a Road Trip to Ambuklao

This green mini water lake was created by the spill side of the Ambuklao Dam near the spillway. (Ambuklao, Bokod, Benguet)

Ambuklao (or Ambuclao as others spell it) is a barangay in Bokod, Benguet, a town situated about one to one and a half hour from the city center of Baguio. It is mountainous over Ambuklao, and somewhere over the mountains a crafted lake was formed sometime in the 1950s. With a depth of more than 750 meters, the Ambuklao Dam serves as an energy source in the island of Luzon. This dam about 36 kilometers northeast of Baguio City is slowly becoming popular because of its manmade scenic view.

Travel and Meet New People

Pinoy Travel Bloggers during the Ambuklao Trip last October 7, 2012.

A lot of people travel because they want to see new sites they have never been to. A lot of them travel because they want to try new adventures out of these places. And a club of travelers explore not only because they want to speculate new festivities and culture but also to meet new people along the way of the so-called journey. Traveling does not only give us surprises, it also gives you the courage to become who you really are by meeting these people who have the same interests with you.
