The beauty of Kalinga can never be discounted, Its rich natural resources, its colorful culture, its people are only few of why Kalinga is a beautiful province. You cannot fully understand a Kalinga unless you live there.
Here are some pictures that could help you understand the Kalinga culture and native practices. The verdant trees, wild flowers and plants are abundant, as sparkling waterfalls and clear streams abound.

The Kalinga girl-woman is simple but beautiful inside and out. She does not care much for make-ups and fancy dresses, but cares much about family, and how to be of help to them and her community. Kristel Erica is a registered nurse serving her local community in the Mountain Provinces. I laud your noble and generous spirit, Kalinga woman!

These are awesome pictures of the Panagbenga Flower Festival in Baguio City last May 2013. The photographer was Ms. Ma. Rosalina Perrson, who was kind enough to lend me these pictures.
There were thousands of visitors, local and foreign, just like Ms. Perrson, who visited the City of Pines just to attend this more than a month long activities.
Thanks also to Nats Dalanao and Paul Massilem.I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Ethnic costumes are usually colorful and durable because they are usually hand woven. Although, there are several ethnic tribes in the Mountain Provinces, the ethnic costumes are still similar in their vivid colors and vibrancy.
The Igorot costumes, Bontoc costumes, Benguet costumes, and Kalinga costumes are made up of an array of bright red, green, and yellow colors. These colors are often designed in wavy patterns or attractive designs that bring out the best of the villages and tribes.
Here are some ethnic costumes found in Northern Philippines. Men in G-strings, and women in ‘ginamat’; the ordinary ‘dresses for the folk.
