What makes Belwang, Sadanga, Mountain Province beautiful?
Belwang is the largest Barangay in Sadanga, Mountain Province in terms of land area.
It is also one of the remotest as it sits high on the mountain slope.
To get here, one needs to hike for more or less an hour. There are no roads leading straight to Belwang.
The trek to Belwang may be tough and challenging. It entails steeps ascend and descend on narrow and winding trails.
However, it is an exhilarating and memorable experience.
Along the way, one can glimpse of beautiful rice terraces as well as crystal-clear brooks and river.

Baguio Boy is Next PNP Chief
UPDATE: Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan is the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, replacing retiring top cop General Archie Gamboa, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año confirmed to Rappler on Tuesday, September 1.
Cascolan is set to retire on November 10 as he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56, unless President Rodrigo Duterte decides to extend his term.
Asked about Cascolan's possible short term, Año said the public should not focus on the span of his stint, but the work to be done.
"Matagal pa naman ang 2 months (2 months is still long). We don't think of that yet. There is a lot to be done," he said.
In terms of seniority, Cascolan was next in line to be chief as the deputy chief for administration of the PNP. He belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Sinagtala Class of 1986.
Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan will serve as officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP) upon the retirement of Gen. Archie Gamboa on Wednesday, Malacañang said Tuesday.
Known by his nickname "Pikoy," Cascolan is also a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, to which his two predecessors, Police Generals Gamboa and (now Senator) Ronald de la Rosa also belonged.
A native of Baguio City, he is a product of the Maryknoll Convent School and the University of the Philippines Baguio High School.

While most indigenous peoples' culture worldwide have succumbed to modern day's creeping globalization, eroding important cultural values, the Igorot peoples' adherence to a centuries-old principle, called "inayan", has allowed them to respect nature, live sustainably with their ecosystem and live peacefully with their neighbors.
According to the International Journal of Advanced Research Management and Social Sciences. "Inayan" is a lexicon in the Philippine indigenous language, which is spoken mainly by the ethnology groups inhabiting the western part of the Mountain Province covering the municipalities of Bauko, Besao, Sagada, and Tadian and the central part Bontoc and Sabangan of the Philippines.
"Inayan" means to hold back or to prevent an individual from doing something unpleasant towards others or things, living and non-living. A deeper investigation of the word in language culture indicates the word connotes "fear of a Supreme Deity called Kabunian (God) who forewarns or dissuades one from doing anything harmful to others and things."

Training out of Team Lakay in Baguio City, Philippines, Danny "The King" Kingad will face Reece "Lightning" McLaren, 27, of Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semi-finals at "ONE: Dawn of Heroes." The Igorot mixed martial artist was originally set to face former ONE Flyweight World Champion Kairat "The Kazakh" Akhmetov, 31, of Taldykorgan, Almaty Kazakhstan.
Akhmetov who had to withdraw from the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semi-finals due to injury. He was replaced by McLaren, who was originally set to fight Yuya "Little Piranha" Wakamatsu, 24, Kagoshima, Japan at "ONE: Dawn of Heroes."
On March 31, 2019, Akhtemov defeated McLaren in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix quarter-finals at "ONE: A New Era" at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan. In another quarter-final bout in the tournament on the same fight card, Kingad defeated Senzo Ikeda, 36, of Tokyo.
Originally from Sadanga, Mountain Province, Philippines, Kingad went to school in Baguio City. He began training in wushu at Team Lakay in 2012 and went on to win gold medals in several local tournaments.
Inspired by the success of esteemed Team Lakay fighter as former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard "Landslide" Folayang, 34, Kingad then turned his attention to the cage. In 2014, Kingad made a successful start to his professional career, debuting with ONE Championship on the way to an impressive record of 8 wins and 0 loss.
This earned Kingad a shot at the ONE Flyweight World Championship against Adriano "Mikinho" Moraes, 31, of Brasilia, Federal District, Brazil. However, the Team Lakay fighter failed in his first bid at world title glory.
Currently, Kingad has 10 wins and 1 loss. On the other hand, McLaren has 12 wins and 6 losses.
A Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, McLaren claimed the Eternal MMA and XFL Bantamweight Championships before making his ONE Championship debut. In 2016, he challenged ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes, 39, of Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil but lost via split decision.
ONE Championship will hold "ONE: Dawn of Heroes" at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines on August 2, 2019. It will feature kickboxing, Muay Thai and mixed martial arts matches.

Benguet- Cordilleran police officers from the Philippine National Police (PNP)-Benguet Provincial Police Office (BPPO) went beyond their law and order enforcement duties to extending their outreach programs in the education sector.
Led by PLTCOL. Tessie Sarmiento, the group of snappy police officers from Benguet volunteered as teachers for a day at Talinguroy Elementary School in Wangal, La Trinidad. Like teachers usually do, they danced, sang, and taught the children in the classroom. They even prepared some food and had a boodle fight lunch with everyone.
The Police Officers also handed out some school supplies and slippers to which the children received with gratitude and excitement.
The PNP officers who volunteered and inspired the children at this outreach event are as follows: PLTCOL Tessie Sarmiento, PEMS Rufino Tarnate, PSMS Dwight Arukod, PSSg Ronelo Mates, PSSg Sandy Golocan, PCpl Reynold Abyado, Pat Geraldine Samortina and Pat Violy Poc-oran.
On her Facebook post, the school principal Dr. Agnes Malinias expressed her heartfelt appreciation to the BPPO and Police Officer volunteers for such a memorable experience they imparted to the school children of TES.
"Thank you sirs and ma'ams from the Benguet Police Provincial Office for the time, effort, resources and love you gave to the learners of Talinguroy Elementary School. You acted as their advisers, music teachers, values education teacher, and physical education teacher. Indeed you left a wonderful experience in the hearts of the children which they really treasure throughout their life," Dr. Malinias said.
Police officers are indeed heroes not only in the eyes of the children but also in the community they serve. The BPPO's program in developing community relations through reaching out to schools and working hand in hand with teachers in educating the young is really commendable.
