Mt. Kalugong Entrance Fee, Registration Fee

Before you can roam the entirety of Mt. Kalugong, you are required to pay the entrance/registration fee of 50 pesos per person.

After paying for the entrance fee, you are free to roam the premises, climb the rock formations, enjoy the swings, eat at any of the picnic tables, and ride the zip line. Using the zip line is free.

If you’re wondering how to get to Mt. Kalugong, you have two options. There are two entry points to the park. Your first option is to ride a jeepney from Baguio City and get off in barangay Cruz.

If you don’t know where to get off, just tell the driver to drop you off at the entrance to Mt. Kalugong in barangay Cruz. Most drivers know the place.

Your second option is to ride a jeepney from Baguio City, get off in Pines Park just in front of Tiong San La Trinidad, and ride another jeep that goes to Lubas/Tawang. Again, you should tell the driver to drop you off at the trail that leads to Mt. Kalugong.
