Cordillera - Have you been to the most scenic mountain ranges in the province of Benguet? The "Crying Mountains of Kibungan" or some may call it the "Switzerland of Benguet". 

Situated around 62 kilometers north of Baguio City, the province of Kibungan, Benguet is known with its gigantic mountains and tall water falls that many have compared it to those majestic mountains of Switzerland. 

Let's have a short glimpse of "The Crying Mountains of Kibungan with this video by Arnel Natnat and friends.

The town of Kibungan is dominantly mountainous that many hikers love to visit. Deep ravines, cliffs and the cool climate are some of the characteristics that give the town the feeling one is in another country but this unique beauty of Kibungan is within the Philippines.

Kibungan is at the northwestern section of Benguet. It is bounded by Bakun on the north, Buguias on the mid-east, Kabayan on the southeast, Atok and Kapangan on the south, and Sugpon on the mid-west.

Kibungan has seven barangays namely; Sagpat, Poblacion, Palina, Tacadang, Madaymen, Badeo, and Lubo. Barangay Sagpat and Lubo produces sayote as their main crop, sayote was tagged the "hanging gold". 

Barangay Madaymen and Palina also produces varieties of vegetables like cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and more. Barangay Tacadang and Badeo is not accessible by vehicle because of the rocky mountains and its hard to construct road.
