from Bontoc to Tuguegarao

Hello,

I`ve read “Very Long Trip Report “ written by infoaddict, but it is old information ( dated by November 2010)

Could somebody answer the following questions:

1. Is there any the newest info about Bontoc-Tuguegarao road condition?

2. At what time the first bus ( minibus) or the jeepney departs from Bontoc to Tuguegarao? Is it direct bus or it has to be changed to another mode of transport in Tabuk?

3. How much time (approximately) the trip lasts from Bontoc to Tuguegarao by bus?

Thanks.

That "old information" is still applicable today (November 9, 2012). I heard that the road condition even worsened because of recent typhoons.

Maybe somebody will need this information.

Traveling via Kalinga Highway and Tinglayan is very dusty, bumpy and dangerous even during dry season and no any road condition changes from that report “Very Long Trip Report “ written by infoaddict up to now.

There is no direct bus from Bontoc to Tugugegarao, only with change in Tabuk.

The first bus from Bontoc to Tabuk ( via Tinglayan) goes at 9:00 AM and their terminal is found near Mountain Province State Polytechnic College. Travel time is about 5 hours, fare is 230 pesos. The last minibus from Tabuk to Tuguegarao goes at 5:00 p.m. Travel time is about 1 hour, fare is 80 pesos.
