I’ve read from a blog that Tabuk, the capital city of Kalinga Province, is just an hour away from Cabagan Isabela. So I’ve asked my brother-in-law if he knows how to get there but unfortunately, he is not familiar with the place. Thanks to the mother of my brother-in-law and with the help of google map, we were able to reach Tabuk city.
Driving from Isabela to Kalinga via Sta. Maria was very relaxing. Seeing the greenery and herd of cows makes you want to stop and feel the serenity of the area. The mountainous road reminds me of the zigzag road going to Baguio. The well constructed pavement made our trip more comfortable. We didn’t even notice that we were already in Kalinga.
For those who would like to reach Tabuk city coming from Isabela and Cagayan, I would highly recommend the Sta. Maria route. But you must travel during the day since there are no light posts along the area.
