Cordillera - If you think that Igloo house can only be found in Alaska, you're wrong. Igloos can also be found in one of the mountains of Cordillera. 

These Igloo-like houses are located in Lap-angan, Mankayan, Benguet. They weren't built by the Eskimos but built by strong Igorots. 

So, if you have been wanting to see an igloo for yourself but can't bear the below zero temperature, you don't need to fly to Alaska. The Igorots of Cordillera has constructed it for you and it's only 4-5 hours drive from Baguio. 

WATCH: Paragliding in Mankayan

While the real Igloos in Alaska were built using blocks of snow to form a spiral dome, the igloos in Benguet were built using cement and concrete hollow blocks.

At present, there are two igloos which are under construction in Mankayan.

We believe that these igloos will add another tourism gem worth visiting in the municipality of Mankayan.

Good job to the owners and builders of these igloos and their brilliant minds.
