Welcome to Bontoc
Bustling Bontoc is one of the most important market towns and transport hubs in the Cordillera. It's an excellent place to arrange a guide if you're looking to get out to the rice terraces of Maligcong and Mainit or stay in the former headhunter villages of Kalinga, so you'll likely find yourself staying a day or two. Today you can still glimpse the occasional elderly woman with tattooed arms and snake vertebrae headgear or elderly men wearing a traditional G-string, particularly during the Lang-Ay Festival in the first week of April, when locals parade through the streets wearing traditional clothing.
