The place has an entrance fee of P50/person (there are still discounts).

This village meets nature with good coffee and hiking and gallery all in one.

You could also rent a place here.

Appalled that my foreigner friend saw this before me, Tam-awan Village instantly ranked high in the itinerary. Designed to make Cordillera history and culture more accessible to people, this reconstructed village showcases seven Ifugao huts and two Kalinga houses that visitors can see and experience. These houses differ from normal huts in that they are made without nails and are elevated from the ground using hardwood posts.
After paying the 50 Php entrance fee, you can choose from the two routes going up the village, the one with the colorful salamander and the concrete stairs. Be prepared for a bit more hiking to reach the highest hut where you will be rewarded with a panoramic view. The trail is relatively easy and clear cut but it could get tricky when the ground is wet.

Created only in 1998, Tam-awan (meaning “vantage point”) also exhibits assortment of art made by local artists that symbolizes what Cordillera heritage is about. There is also a coffee shop and craft shop inside where you can sample native coffee.
How to get here: ride the Quezon Hill- Tam-awan jeep or Long-long jeep via Tam-awan (from Kayang Street)

I just loved this place and one of the must visits in Baguio! Very educational and I just hope we have the consciousness to preserve heritage such as this.

To better appreciate the rich culture of the cordillera region, we went to tam-awan village. Entrance fee is 50/person which includes a map. The village showcase ifugao huts including the fertility hut and a hut that turned into a gallery. They also have a portrait sketching session and a cafe. They have the dream catcher art installation and a section wherein you can experience to see the beautiful sunset at the top of the hill. Steep pathways so better wear your comfy shoes.

I enjoyed our visit here in this cultural and slightly touristy place. It's educational and amusing at the same time since they'll inform you on how the Ifugao's used to live and see actual houses. i Loved the plants and the climate of course! A bit of walking/training too but I enjoyed crossing the bridges a lot. Lots of photo ops too9996🏻️. The place has some scattered beautiful art and anito's around but if you want some shopping to do, they have an antique shop for that. For 50pesos entrance, this place should be worth more! 9786

Nice cultural heritage place, though we are not prepared for some trek up, and I am wearing a skirt! as we went there straight from church.

It's nice to have some replica of our heritage in the north :) a must-visit place.

the bf and i went here after dropping by La Trinidad strawberry fields.

the entrance was 100 per person and parking spaces were minimal. street parking was the way to go.

we were able to see the old igorot houses used before. i think you can rent some of the cottages there. it was educational. what i really liked was the hike to the 2 viewing decks. the second viewing deck was way further up the hill.

the climate was cool since trees were abundant.

they do have a museum/gallery in there. they also have a small coffee shop that serves meals. outside the coffee shop is where a group of young people in Igorot costume performing.

i was expecting a bit more on this place so it was just okay.

The entrance fee (Adult 50 php; Students 30php) includes a map which can make you help yourself through the trails and just appreciate the place in your own pace. The village is practically a trail which had around 10 huts you can stop over and take pictures in. It is suggested you go here in the morning when it's still cooler and not after rain because the trail can get muddy and slippery.

I enjoyed the anitos scattered around the place. Hehe. We also enjoyed the galleries in some nipa huts, I think that's the best part. Overall it's a good trip for all folks wanting to get the vibe of legit Cordillera atmosphere.

going back to my baguio series 128516

Tam-awan village is also known as garden in the sky, it's so cold here 128586
The place is okay parang kaming nagttrekking 128514
which is not appropriate for our clothes by the way 128514
This place is a bit hard to find and the roads are a bit steep
Well kasi nga nasa "sky" daw siya duhh 128514

We also tried the couple sketch, we had 4 artists 2 for mariel & migs (their artist is way better128532) and 2 for us (ours is mehhh128557)

Me and boyfie want to make the most of our trip that's why we included this on our list 128517

➡️ A 50 pesos entrance per person. You can also have a photo op with a native wearing a bahag 128523

➡️ There's a lot of sighting in the place. Different wood sculpture like "bulol" and the native wooden house and complete package.

➡️ Also, an antique cafe located in the second floor where you can have some snacks.

➡️ If you're feelin' adventurous, you can explore the whole place (which we haven't see since we're so lazy) 128518

➡️ But our real intention of going to the place is the artist that offer portrait sketching. 100 per person (150 if colored) or 300 per couple (350 for colored one). I read about this in some blog and I find it nice as well. Wala lang, just for remembrance. 128523

How's the portrait? Hahah. Funneh! 128518

Also known as the Garden in the Sky, Tam-awan Village is another cultural hub in Baguio City. You can see native huts, carvings and artworks that depict the culture of the Ifugaos.

You have to climb steep stairs and trails to reach the top to reach the Viewing Deck. Unfortunately, we didn't reach that part coz it was muddy so the trails were slippery. 128554 They also have accomodations here if you plan to stay overnight. There's a cafe, gallery and craft shop somewhere near the entrance.

The place looks like a forest. Hehehe. You can take photos near the wishing pond and enter the huts on display. 9786

I guess it's better to go during summer since it's dry and it'll be easier to climb the trails to enjoy the nice view at the deck. 127749

You have to pay an entrance fee, P50 for adults if I remember it right. I can give the whole place 4 stars but since we didn't have a "sulit" experience, I'll give it a 3 for now. 128522
