There are two ways to reach Conner’s Bellang Cave. One is via a 40-minute tricycle ride through paved roads, while the other is by crossing knee-deep muddy trails and waist-deep rivers with gushing waters which takes around 1.5 hours. Once you reach the jump-off point to the cave, reward yourselves for surviving the trek or extremely bumpy ride by jumping into the cool lagoon.
The artifacts displayed in this classroom-turned-museum are a combination of donations from nearby communities and Sir Allen Mayodong's personal collection. The Humanities and English professor began gathering items of historical and cultural importance from the Isnag and Ifugao tribes in 2003. Baskets, kitchen tools and equipment, and national costumes are just some of the invaluable items on display. Entrance to the museum is free, but Sir Mayodong must be informed before visiting. Interested parties can contact him through his mobile number +63 906 743 6611.
If you think crossing a hanging bridge is heart-stopping enough, try one whose maximum capacity is yet to be found out. Since being built last year, Kelbat Hanging Footbridge has played a big role in the daily lives of the residents around Nabuangan River. Hence, despite being constructed only a couple of years ago, the fragile-looking overpass can easily pass off as an antiquated structure. After crossing the bridge, visitors can head to the banks of Nabuangan River and swim in its cool waters, where cottages suited for picnics and gatherings can be used for free.
