It is an 11-hour trip via Banaue, Ifugao. You may also stay overnight at Banaue if you wish to view the famed Banaue Rice Terraces. However, if you want to cover Baguio City before heading to Bontoc, you can take the bus to Baguio. You may take Victory Liner, Dagupan Bus Liner, Dangwa Bus, or Philippine Rabbit buses. The fare varies depending on your desired bus company. Buses leave hourly to Baguio. From Baguio City, you can ride buses to Bontoc such as the Rising Sun or GL Tans. Trips are scheduled every hour from 5am to 3pm daily. Manila-Baguio-Bontoc is one route you can take if you plan to visit Bontoc. Dagupan Bus Line is a cheaper alternative than the other bus lines. Since it is less popular than the other companies there is shorter queue even during peak travel season. The fare is cheaper too as it only costs P325.00 inclusive of insurance each way. The bus station is located near the Victory Liner station along EDSA in Cubao.
