Location

 

Situated centrally in the Cordilleras, Mt. Province is bounded on the north by Kalinga, on the south by Ifugao, southwest by Benguet and on the west by Abra and Ilocos Sur. It is accessible from Ifugao through the Banaue-Bontoc Road, Ilocos Sur through the Tagudin-Cervantes-Tadian Road, Kalinga through the Lubuagan-Bontoc Road and Baguio through the scenic Halsema Highway famously known as Mountain Trail.

 

Basic Information

 

Mt. Province is politically divided into 10 municipalities and 144 barangays with the municipality of Bontoc as its capital. The 10 municipalities with some basic information are as follows.

 

Creation

 

The former Mt. Province was created in 1908 with seven sub-provinces, namely: Benguet, Bontoc, Ifugao, Lepanto, Amburayan, Kalinga and Apayao. Later, Amburayan and Lepanto were incorporated by the sub-province of Benguet and Bontoc respectively leaving the five sub-provinces known as BIBAK.

 

Mt. Province became an independent province on March 25, 1967 when President Ferdinand E. Marcos officially appointed and inducted into office the first provincial board.

 

On April 7, 1967, the new Mt. Province came into operation. This date was unanimously adopted as the Mt. Province Day by the provincial board in its regular meeting held on June 10, 1980.

 

Physical Profile

 

The topography of Mountain Province is rough characterized by very steep slopes and deep ravines. Small patches of gentle stones may be found along river banks, narrow valleys and tops of ridges. Elevation ranges from 500 meters at Saclit, Sadanga to as high as 2,714 meters to the top of Mt. Kalawitan in Sabangan.

 

The province has two general types of climate. The western portion is under Type I with two pronounced seasons; dry from November to April and wet during the rest of the year. The eastern portion is under Type III with season not very pronounced: relatively dry from November to April and wet for the rest of the year.
