Tucked in between Bontoc and Tinglayan, Sadanga is a laid back town of Mountain Province overshadowed by its more popular neighbors including Tinglayan, Banaue, Bontoc and Sagada. A blessing in disguise for it has preserved its culture, heritage and natural beauty.
Unknown to a lot of people specially in the lowland, Sadanga is home to some of the most beautiful rice terraces in the province. The rice terraces of Betwagan which are visible from the highway as well as the one in Anabel are just samplers. Both can be seen when you passed by the main road connecting Bontoc and Tinglayan.

Baliling: The Amazing Architectural Gardening of the Mountain Province
"Baliling" or "Binaliling" is a farming technique which is still being practiced by the indigenous peoples of Bayyo, Bontoc in Mountain Province.
Baliling is done by overturning the soil and creating beds after the rice cropping cycle.
The rows are usually planted with legumes or sweet potatoes. This improves soil fertility and aeration. The gutters in between were then filled with water, an efficient irrigation system. Creating artistic patterns in the fields bringing a joyful aura in the field for the farmers, and all entities that inhabit the field.
This includes ancestral and nature spirits who are believed to be also sharing space and participate in bringing about abundant harvest and balances ecosystems.

Bontoc chieftain Antonio and the different types of Bontoc spears
Behind Bontoc chieftain Antonio are the different types of Bontoc spears.
He is holding a two barbed "Falfeg". The "Falfeg" was barbed, not for enhanced human or game killing ability but for more spiritual purposes.
Being animist, the Bontoc Igorots believed that the barbs are there to ensnare spirits. The more barbs, made the Falfeg a more effective weapon to fight evil spirits.
