"It's an Eco-Cultural Village Park in Tublay, Benguet"
If you find this story/blogpost interesting and/or had helped you in any way (in your researches, works, travels, blogs, adventures, homeworks at school, a personal project and more), I'd like to hear a word or two from wonderful people like you or simply Like "pagnapagna" in Facebook. I'd be very thankful. It gives me inspirations. Cheers!

(December 3, 2015 a Thursday)

I rode a jeep bound for the municipality of Tublay with seeing waterfalls in my mind.
At Tublay Municipal Hall, I met Mr. Enrique and inquired about their tourism sites. Their major tourist destination is located at Ambongdolan which costs around 400 pesos on a hired ride alone, one way. I just settled for the Winaca Eco-cultural Village which was just nearby.

At Halsema Highway, near the tollgate, I went walking along the Kapangan road then turned left to a barangay road where I passed by the Church of INC (Iglesia ni Cristo). I kept walking until I reached the gate of Winaca and paid a minimum amount (must be 40 or 50 pesos, I forgot) as entrance fee. 
Along the dirt road, I kept walking and passed by some plantations which was still being prepared for planting anthuriums.  Further was the "Narda's" Handwoven Arts and Crafts which is well known for their weavings.

I kept walking down the road that leads to the Cafe and Restaurant. Just below it was the Eco-Cultural Village with an activity area complete with obstacle courses. The traditional huts was what caught my attention.
Going further down would be an Eco-trail. I did not go further down, I think I was not in a hiking mood that day.
After resting for a while at the yard of one of the traditional huts, I went back going uphill on the road to the entrance gate.
I left the area bound for Home Sweet Home.
