The biggest island in the Philippines, Luzon, is known for having lots of roads that are characterized by sharp turns. If we were to pick one well-known roadway that reifies the concept of a zigzag scenic route, there’s one that stands out: Kennon Road. This road in Benguet province connects the mountain city of Baguio to the lowland town of Rosario in La Union province. It’s the most famous road in the Cordillera Administrative Region because of its picturesque routes. On the other hand, it’s also very infamous for being the most hazardous road in the country particularly during the rainy seasons. The road is prone to closure due to landslides, which cause most of the road accidents during heavy rains or typhoon conditions.
I was fortunate to have experienced jaunting the zigzag road of Kennon that leads to an upward climb for most part back in the summer of 2009. As the bus nears the city of Baguio, the broad daylight reveals a very quaint view of the mountains and its lush vegetation like the one I snapped in the photo.
