Kalinga is a province within the Cordillera Administrative Region in the Philippines. It is famous for its rich cultural heritage and tribal awareness. It also has a range of attractions, from rice terraces to whitewater rapids, waterfalls, and mountain ranges.
Apo Whang-od is probably the most famous Kalinga resident. People flock to the province and have a hand-tapped tattoo from her. Aside from getting inked, visitors also come to experience Pasil Natural Dam, Binasalan Falls, Mt. Mating-oy, Buaya Cave, and Lubo and Mangali Rice Terraces. Sulfur Hills is particularly splendid with its surreal site and challenging trek. This attraction lies at the lower slopes of Mt. Binuluan and a trek to reach it would require hours of passing through mossy forests and tall pine trees.
From Kalinga, you can easily access other destinations in Cordillera, including Baguio City, Sagada, Ifugao, and Apayao.
