UKDEO creates replica of famous destination
by PIA release

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The replica of one of Kalinga’s tourist attractions is now along the national highway in front of the temporary office of the Upper Kalinga District Engineering Office (UKDEO).

Engr. Manuel Madio said the project was conceived 10 years ago. This year, the city government asked barangays and offices operating in the city to participate in its “Make bright the nights this Christmas” by putting lighted Christmas trees in every barangay and office.

The idea to have a replica of one of Kalinga’s tourist attractions, the Sleeping Beauty of Tinglayan, aims to inspire visitors, stir and widen the imagination of tourists even after Christmas.

To create the famous Sleeping Beauty, Madio said soil from road widening and re-blocking projects were hauled to the site that now makes up the sculpture. 

“As Christmas passes by, the replica of the Sleeping Beauty will remain year-round to be enhanced again during the Yuletide season,” Madio said. It also has a unifying feature for all the municipalities in Kalinga since the names of all the municipalities are engraved on it. 

With the Christmas lights already in place, the lights will be switched on at 6 p.m. today to be graced by Rep. Allen Jesse Mangaoang, Mayor Ferdinand Tubban, employees of offices located at Capitol Hills and students of the Kalinga State University.

The  legend of the Sleeping Beauty mountain which can be  best viewed  in Basao, Bangad and Butbut, Tingalyan,  is one of Kalinga’s most loved bedtime stories popularly sang in the native ballad called Ullalim.

The tale of two lovers ended by a tribal war has different versions depending on the tribe where the story originated. The name of the protagonists are also different. One version of the story is about Lubting and Mawanga; one is about Dinayao and Binsay,  and the other, Edonsan and Banna – all ending with the female protagonist resting on Patukan, in despair, after the loss of her loved one.
