The word Panagbenga comes from Kankanaey, which is a native language in the province of Benguet and Mountain Province. The word panagbenga roughly translates into “season of blooming”, “season for blossoming”, or “time for flowering.”
Preparing for Panagbenga
Panagbenga goes from February to the first week of March. The weather is usually cool and clear, with little to no rain. The highland temperature can be a lot cooler than the lowlands in the Philippines. So, make sure to bring something warm to wear. If you arrive and don’t have any warn to wear… then you can easily find some excellent deals on warm clothing in the second hand shops that are all around Baguio, or at the Night Market.
