Kayapa is a small and quaint, peaceful and serene, and vegetable-producing mountain town(valley) nestled about 1121 meters above sea level, 80 kilometers away and a comfortable 2-hour drive from Baguio City through the Benguet-Nueva Vizcaya Road(also known asAmbuklao Road).
The zigzag road from Baguio to Kayapa is completely paved and offers spectacular views of Ambuklao and Binga Dams, rivers, lakes, pine tree-clad mountain sides, vegetable garden terraces and very cool and unpolluted weather. In fact, the abundance of pine trees will give you the chance to breathe real pine tree-scented air.
Kayapa is in the northern part of the Philippines in the island of Luzon and lies in the vast Cordillera mountain range. The town is located at the boundary between Benguet and Nueva Vizcaya and is the gateway to Region 2/Cagayan Valley if coming from the west.
Its upland location provides for cool temperatures on a yearlong basis.
