“Good views, lots of people!”
Review of Mines View Park

Mines View Park
Ranked #6 of 69 things to do in Baguio
Attraction details
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Mines View is a good view-point for seeing the mountains and valleys around Baguio. This, with the connecting street with the Good Shepherd Convent full of touristy shops makes it a must for a Baguio visit. You can also dress as a native, sit on a pink maned pony or get a picture with a giant dog making it ideal for kids not to mention grown-up kids.

When we visited Mines View Park, there were a lot of people on the viewing deck (but a lot fewer than peak season). We can't almost have the chance to take a picture without a photo bomber! Anyway, the view though is exceptional. It feels like you're on top of the world.

Undoubtedly one of the most if not the most popular park in Baguio. Extreme caution when walking up and down the stairs as the climb is too steep, the stairs too narrow and super slippery when wet. The observation deck will give you a sweeping view of Benguet and the mountain ranges. But no mines in sight. They say the view of the abandoned mine before can be seen from the top.

Interestingly, there is also a wishing well in memory of the Igorot kids who made the area popular. The story was that in the 50s until the 90s, there used to be small children who catch tourists’ attention by catching coins using an improvised coin-catching device made of cardboard that is shaped like a cone attached to a bamboo pole. They braved the slopes to catch the coins thrown by the tourists. It became a sensational attraction until the authorities deemed it dangerous and life-threatening. This is a tribute for them.

Try their corn and the squid when in Mines View Park. You can also rent a traditional Ifugao dress and have your picture taken wearing them. You can also have your picture taken while riding a stationary horse. You can also pose with St. Bernard dogs at the entrance for a fee of course. There are a lot of store here and canteens. Don't forget to haggle so you can have your perfect souvenir at a bargain.
