TALUGTUG, NUEVA ECIJA, PHILIPPINES

    

The Serene Hills 

of Barangay Tibag, 

Talugtug, Nueva Ecija

   

People come here on purpose or just drop by for 3 things:

    

The beautiful views of the Talugtug countryside. 

    

Fresh air that lets you release all your troubles away. 

   

They’ve come to collect ‘Kulibangbang’ leaves 

from the trees that abound on the hills. 

   

Kulibangbang translated literally is ‘butterfly’

so called by the locals because of its resemblace with the butterfly. 

    

The locals use it for a dish called ‘pinapaitan’ 

which is a famous Ilocano dish

If you are a culture vulture and are not too fussy about food, 

you can ask the locals to prepare some for you. 

   

If you keep driving along this road from Talugtug, 

you will soon find yourself in the town of Umingan, Pangasinan

The roads are paved to national highway standards 

which will sooner or later will make this piece of country 

very busy with travellers. 

    

Soak in some countryside spirit while its still at its most ‘untouched’ state. 

 

If you are one for a short joyride, 

you can start from Talugtug then drive til Umingan 

which will take less than 2 hours one way. 

The views along this stretch are breathtaking if you are a nature lover. 

   

   

    

We were told by our guide that the mountains in the horizon 

are that of the Cordillera Mountain Range. Some of the highest peaks belong to Baguio City. 

If you wish to have a quick virtual tour of Baguio City, here is one of our blog post:
