When you say Mountain Province – the first thing that comes to your mind is Sagada. Long and overlooked, Bontoc is the capital of Mountain Province and now currently gaining its popularity on social media. Mt. Kupapey is now the main attraction of Maligcong. Famous for its sunrise and sea of clouds. When the sea of clouds is not present you can see the overlooking view of the Maligcong Rice Terraces. This is such a win-win view. Kupapey means “butterfly” on their local dialect. According to the locals the mountain coined its named because from the summit you can see the rice terraces resembling the wing of butterflies.
Aside from its picturesque view, the mountain is also famous for its hospitable guide dogs. Fato means “bato” (rock). It’s named after its rocky summit. The summit is a 360 degrees view of its neighboring mountains and the Maligcong rice terraces can be seen from here. The trail is an easy assault. It took us less than an hour to reach the summit. Just in time to reach the summit before sunset. The trail is covered with young pine trees. Compared to Mt. Kupapey, the trail is still fresh.
