Kabayan Eco-Cultural Adventure: Timbac Burial Caves

Timbac Stairs

The mummies in Mt. Timbac are placed at a high elevation of 2500 MASL facing Mt. Pulag. This is because the people of Kabayan believe in the ascension of the spirits of their elders to Mt. Pulag for it is the playground of the gods. They say that the preserved internal organs is a mark of distinction for the Kabayan fire mummies.
