Find out where to go and what to do in Abra Mount Poswey with Rough Guides

Abra (Ilokano: Probinsia ti Abra; Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Abra) is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Bangued, and is bordered by Ilocos Norte on the northwest, Apayao on the northeast, Kalinga on the mid-east, Mountain Province on the southeast, and Ilocos Sur on the southwest.

Abra for a long time had been a blank spot on the Philippine tourism map. It is often skipped due to news of killings and partly because of its location in North Luzon. It is sandwiched between two very popular tourist destinations - Ilocos in the west and the Cordilleras in the east. But now Abra is becoming one of the best tourist destinations with huge arrays to choose from, old churches, long bridges, mountain ranges, magnificent waterfalls, food and a lot more.  

The MOUNT POSWEY is located in Boliney, Abra. It ranks among the highest mountains in the Province. It measures more than 1,546 meters above sea level. From the jump-off point at barangay Bao-yan, the trek takes around 3-4 hours. However, the views all along are very rewarding. What more if one gets to the top? Mt. Poswey is a prime biodiversity area. In fact, the critically-endangered Philippine eagle has been sighted in the area. Never miss this out if you're going to Abra!
