The Cordillera Great Traverse gives you about 400 kilometers of mountain passes, forests, rivers, waterfalls, rice terraces, villages and ancient trails with several thousands of meters worth of elevation gains and losses. That’s seeing nature at its raw beauty. It gets even better as it aims to connect six provinces of the Cordillera Administrative Region through interlocking trails that can rival the best trekking destinations in the world like the Appalachian Trail (3,500km, USA), the Great North Walk (250km, Australia), Drakensberg (220km, South Africa) and GR20 (180km Europe).
Think about all the possibilities that can go for both trail runners/ trekkers and mountain climbers. This would be a really epic and this would be the Philippines longest expedition. Imagine seeing the rice terraces in Sagada then going over several mountain ranges in Abra, Kalinga, Apayao, Ifugao and Benguet with various natural wonders along the way and then finishing up in the City of Pines. This would have your visual senses delighted and your overall being refreshed.
The expedition would not only give you a better appreciation of the natural surroundings but also the rich heritage and culture of the Cordilleras. The Expedition starts on April 2015 and for now the Planning begins in July 2014.
