Road trip: Kennon Road

Lion's Head, Kennon Road

Kennon Road aka the "zigzag road", is a very scenic highway located in northern Luzon island of the Philippines. It is one of the many routes that link Baguio to lowland towns. Kennon Road has a length of 41.2 km, it links the famous city of Baguio (the summer capital of the Philippines), at an elevation of 5,500 feet above the sea level, to the lowland town of Rosario in La Union province.

Kennon Road is one of the most dangerous roads in the country especially during the rainy seasons. Most of the road accidents occur due to landslides which makes it prone to closure during heavy rains.

Thanks to TPLEX, trip to Baguio is now easier and faster! And your trip won't be complete without experiencing Kennon Road. The drive is definitely worth it.  But please remember to be extra cautious when driving, and please do not drive in the late afternoon,  the roads are not safe at night,   expect to encounter sharp turns and blind curves. Also,  you will see a lot of road rehabilitation so please be extra careful, some portions of the road are not strong enough to hold the weight of a vehicle. so watch out for warnings and don't drive fast!
