Thanks to Kabaitan Bautista. He introduced me to this place. I never failed to go here whenever I go up to Baguio. The artists there are awesome. They can draw a sketch or paint you in ten minutes. A haven for artists like me. They also have tribal dance performances there.

A must visit if you want to see Ifugao huts from older generations. They also have artist who can paint your sketch your face for a fee but worth trying. Cafe is also present if you wAnt to have a cup of coffee or quick meal.

Best time to visit is during summer, so the way to the top is not slippery. Spending a night in their tree houses is an experience, but be sure to call way ahead to reserve as summer is peak season.

Been here a few times, those were very good experiences but this one is disappointing. There used to be guides that would tour you around and talk about the stuffs there, but it didn't happen. We were just given maps and told to read the plaques. It was an easy trek, the paths have improved. At the cafe, the attendants... More

This is a small village of the original natives of Baguio. It felt more like a small park. We walked around, looked at a few artifacts, and then our tour was done. If your into culture and " indian style " artifacts then you should visit Tam-awan Village, if your not, then I would suggest skipping this place.

The paths were not maintained and made our tour of the village a very slippery one. The bathrooms were very dirty. It was an ok attraction to see but I would not go here again.

I have visited this some years back but had to return for a balikbayan friend's sake. Am happy to note that it has improved. We were lucky to have Jerwin, our tour guide for the day. He shared with us the Mountain Province culture, giving information, sampling us with music and taking very good pictures. We had very limited time... More

Even if it does commercial activities and is run like a business, one does not feel robbed because there is so much to engage in while inside the park. Though not for the faint-limbed and elderly, the trip through the park is a literal breath of fresh air in a very congested mountain city like Baguio. The place is a... More
