The toll is cheap, and it gets you where you need to go FAST. But if you're an inexperienced driver, better take a different route. This road is for the big boys/girls.

The road is nice, you could see beautiful landscape during the trip. It is not possible to park in the road, if you drive a car. I prefer hiring a motor bike from Baguio to go with friends and enjoy the landscape.

Not much to say but drive carefully and within your capability. Lots of crazy motorcycles down this mountain zigzag rd. Buses and jeepneys are also abundant. Some very nice views. There is a toll at the mid point area.
