Cordillera - A living museum in Silang Cavite called Shambala features a place where you can experience a bit of Cordilleran culture. 

Shambala is Sanskrit word  named after mythical Himalayan kingdom which means a "place of peace and happiness".

The Shambala in Cavite mimics the Cordilleran scenery as it features a serene surrounding of authentic and indigenous Cordilleran artifacts like the carve stones, bul-ul and the Ifugao huts.

Riza Matibag-Muyot, the owner of Shambala said the place is like a living museum that shows the rich culture of Cordillera especially the Ifugao and Sagada. 

The huts are authentic as it was originally brought from Banga-an, Mayoyao, Sagada and Bontoc.

The huts are equipped with fixtures made from indigenous materials but with modern and comfortable amenities that will soothe aching nerves and backs. 

There is a green house for business functions and large gatherings and there is tribal DAP-AY where a small group can light a bon-fire at night and roast sticks of barbeque or hotdogs under a cloak of stars and moonlight.
