Mt. Timbac and the Mummies

Mt. Timbac and the Mummies

when dong ho(escapeislands.com) said that he will be going to kabayan benguet and visit the mummies of mt. timbac together with a few travel bloggers I immediately filed a vacation leave so that I could join them. to be honest, I wasn’t able to sleep for one week. I keep thinking about the upcoming trek and most especially meeting my blog hero/idol for the first time (dong ho).

…it was indeed a perfect day to trek

  1. the mummies are so amazing! maybe it's the cool climate that makes the mt province thrive in mummification.
