GETTING TO NATURE'S MIST
You can take a night bus from Manila via Ohayami or Florida and arrive in Banaue about 7AM. You can check in early, as soon as you arrive in town and that gives you the entire first day for touring. It's a short walk, perhaps 1 km, from the Tourist Information Office. Or just take a trike taxi to Nature's Mist; the fare is only 10 pesos.
Beware of touts who may accost you as you get off the bus in Banaue. There are many unauthorized tour guides who meet passengers and pretend to be licensed guides. Some of them get a commission by misleading you to other hotels. Nature's Mist does not participate in this contemptible practice and does not pay commission ("balato" in Tagalog) to drivers who direct customers to us.
Here are some views of Nature's Mist's attractive new facilities:

Most Malay languages give stress to the second syllable so Banaue is pronounced "Bah NOW way". Similarly Batad is "Bah TAHD"; Hungduan is "Hung DEW an"; Mayoyao is "Mah YO ya oh".

Their inn is large enough to accommodate several families as well as individual travelers, but not so large that you are ignored as just another guest. The Bustamantes treat you as a visitor in their home and can offer tour and travel tips to the area, not only in Banaue but also to the entire Cordillera region (The Cordillera is the central mountain area of northern Luzon island and it includes Ifugao Province as well as several neighboring provinces).
