baguio ghost tour

Awesome post!!! I love going on ghost tours! I went to one when I was in Australia - probably around 7-9 years old then - and it scared the hell out of me. I can still remember the faint, musty smell that came from one of the "torture" rooms in an underground passage we visited. Your experience makes me want to go to Baguio and sign up for this too! >_< Love your writing style by the way. Really complements the tone and topic.

I've never been on a ghost tour before, this sounds creepy as hell though! I'm tempted now :D

OMG!! Not sure if I would trade a nice and quiet stroll around the city for a spooky and mysterious tour. But well done courageous lady! Loved the post, good to know that in Baguio we can find such unique experiences. Cheers, Nat

I'm not a big fan of ghost tours, I'm always too afraid :D what you described in your article sounds so creepy!

I´ve never been on a ghost tour, sounds positively freaky!!!!

Great post. I like to cover huanted places and there are many in India. Greate pics complementing the story.

You are one brave girl. When we went to Baguio, my friends were very much into ghost tours but I am too scared for that so I left them to do their own thing. Waaah especially since it's known to have a lot there.

I don't believe in ghosts, but this actually sounded pretty spooky! Great writing and descriptions of the tour. Those laughing toddlers haha-can't believe the parents brought them either!

We love ghost tours. Some are far better than others. The stop at the mansion would have definitely creeped me out from your description. :)

Interesting take on the city!

I love going on ghost tours, and this sounded like fun!

I find ghost tours really fascinating! I went on one a few years ago in Sydney and it was both funny and scary - this one looks like an interesting way to explore the city.

I always wanted to see this place! I was too young to do it the late I visited Baguio, hopefully soon!

So creepy! I love exploring abandoned buildings, didn't even know about this one!

Wow! Creepy and fascinating at the same time! I'm easily scared so not sure if I would be brave enough to do this!!

Anton sounds like a great guide. Did you believe?

I've never been on a ghost tour but there's one here in Seoul that I've been wanting to check out!

Love a good ghost tour! I just went on one in Seoul, I was anticipating creepy and scary, but aadly it wasn't! This one sounds like it would scare me a lot!

Never been to a ghost tour and wouldn't never dare to go to one.

Sounds like something we would like to try! Brilliant narration and photos !!

Seriously, I'm ready to go on a weekend adventure here on halloween!!

Love your pictures and telling! Great halloween like adventure :D We'd have loved to go here, but didn't make it in our last trip. Hopefully a next one we will!

You're so brave to actually go there! I'd be so terrified :D

Sounds creepy! Perfect post for October (with Halloween looming)! I've never done a ghost tour, but sounds like fun! http://www.lifeismyoyster.com

We love exploring abandoned places ourselves and are avid "urbexers", granted we go without permission, but it is for the history and the atmosphere that you just can't describe! We have had some pretty spooky moments! I think we would love this!

Creepy! I think this would give me nightmares! :)

AHAH I am kind of a baby when it comes to ghosts and horror, so I probably would not have the BEST time here ahahah

A Civil Engineer will be astonished how well this antique haunted house remained strong. A powerful earthquake and a couple of super strong typhoons never brought it down.

I stayed for 5 days at teachers camp. We lock our rooms all the time, when we came back it's unlocked. This happens during our entire stay in the village. Maybe the door is broken or something? Then the toilet cistern keeps on clanging..not flushing mind you... maybe the blasted thing needs fixing as well. Then one night at about 2 to 3 am all hell broke lose! The girls dorm went crazy, the chicks came running out screaming "Ghost! Ghost! someone one was crying in agony in their toilet. No one was there. The Chicks left in a hurry. some of the brave gals stayed and ignored the crying. Seems that the Ghost only cries and didn't hurt anyone. I heard the crying like this before in one of my newly rented retail shop. we where all men about 6 of us. We turned chicken that day. I acted brave and tried to look cool by checking the toilet out. I swear the crying was right besides me but no one was there! No wonder the stupid landlord gave me such cheap rent! Anyhoo, I blasted the place with Vanilla Ice song (Ice Ice baby) for the whole week non stop and it drove the Mamaw out of my shop! Loud music if you want these spooks out of your humble abode.

Ghost tours are a thing now! Baguio city has its first licensed ghost tour operator!

baguio ghost tour

Got a tip? Send it to us at [email protected] .

It’s called Pine City Fright Tours and it can provide that extra chill to your Baguio trip. It’s the first tour company in Baguio to provide ghost tours. As in, for two hours, you go around hitting Baguio’s famed haunted places. You can also go ghost-hunting.

The Pine City Fright Tour was put up by an ex-film editor/freelance videographer Anton Villa-Abrille in March. “I’ve always been fond of Baguio, I spent many summers up here. I got tired of working for other people so I decided to go into a business for myself. What better place to do a ghost tour than in a haunted city?” Needless to say, Villa-Abrille is a huge horror fan.

Villa-Abrille himself conducts the tours which start at about 5pm. He meets his guests, usually in SM Baguio and for two hours, he’ll take them out for a ride, making three stops and four drive-bys to some of Baguio’s popular haunted places.

Baguio is a four hour-drive north of Manila. Located in Benguet province, Baguio city is a favorite summer destination among Filipinos because that’s when we get to wear boots and sweaters — it’s cool and chill. In 1990, an earthquake struck, causing massive destruction and killing thousands. That’s when Baguio started building a reputation as a haunted city — at least for people who grew up in the ’90s who are now in their 30’s.  

Most of these so-called haunted places are closed at night, but Pine City Fright Tour is a legit little thing, licensed by the local government of Baguio. Villa-Abrille has special permits that allow him to take his guests in these establishments at night.

“I also offer a two-hour ghost hunting package,” he adds. Among the places he takes his guests to is the Laperal House, while the ghosting package takes place in the Old Diplomat Hotel.

baguio ghost tour

A minimum of three persons is required for a tour to push through. Should guests prefer they get picked up and dropped off at their hotels, they can just choose a premium package. Pine City Fright Tours charge PHP500 for adults and PHP350 for students.

Villa-Abrille is not a psychic, spiritista or a medium. “I’m just a paranormal investigor who has seen his share.” Villa-Abrille moved to Baguio and immersed himself in research to try and prove the stories he’s heard as a child were not just kwentong barbero .

It took him all of seven months to finish his research, which he supplemented with interviews of caretakers, previous owners, survivors, and eyewitnesses. “Each place I take my guests to, I give a historical background and then a paranormal account.”

Villa-Abrille says he would rather not focus on the 1990 earthquake that left more than 2,000 people dead. “That’s a subject I don’t like to get into, actually. It’s still a sensitive topic for the locals. Besides, Baguio has a long paranormal history. The quake just contributed to it.”

Surprisingly, the local government of Baguio was very receptive of Villa-Abrille’s idea. “When I explained that I wanted to promote Baguio and give tourists something else to do, you could say the local government was very helpful. That’s what I love about Baguio. Everyone has a ghost story to tell.”

If this sounds like your kind of thrill, check out the Facebook page of Pine City Fright Tours.  +63 9985480301.

7 Scariest Places To Visit In Baguio City

baguio ghost tour

Last Updated on November 8, 2021 by Ran

Some of you may know that I majored in tourism when I was in college. However, only a few people know about one of my main interests in this area: dark tourism .

Dark tourism is the study of places dealing with death, tragedy, and horror. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in such places. So interested, in fact, that I proposed the topic to my college BFF Kat for our undergraduate thesis. After all, I’ve always been a fan of horror and macabre, so it’s only natural that I would go down that route, isn’t it?

Today, I’m going to share the 7 scariest places to visit in Baguio City based on our research, plus the horror stories that go along with them.

I have to warn you though, these places are not for the faint of heart. Keep that in mind if you’re planning to go for a spooktacular adventure to discover Baguio City’s most haunted sites!

Table of Contents

1. Teacher’s Camp

liveloveran scariest places baguio city teacher's camp

The Horror Story

A group of friends decides to stay in one of the dormitories-turned-transient-homes inside Teacher’s Camp.

Come midnight, one girl wakes up to the sound of heavy footsteps and knocks outside their door. She gets up, still sleepy, and opens the door, thinking it’s just one of her friends who might have used the restroom. Nobody comes in so she decides to leave the door open before coming back to bed.

Suddenly, she hears the sound again, this time much worse: the sound of someone dragging their chain-bounded feet on the floor, slowly getting closer and closer to their open room.

liveloveran scariest places baguio city teacher's camp

Behind Teacher’s Camp

From the outside, Baguio’s Teacher’s Camp is seen as a premier event and training center for professionals, especially teachers, from all around the Philippines. Built in 1908 to serve this purpose for American ‘Thomasite’ teachers, the camp has already seen countless stories, both of success and horror alike.

During World War II, Japanese soldiers used the site to hold hundreds of people captive. Numerous people are said to have been beheaded and killed at the camp, making it no surprise to hear all the horror stories culminating in the place.

Top 7 scariest places to visit in Baguio City, you say? There’s no way Teacher’s Camp can’t make it into the list.

liveloveran scariest places baguio city teacher's camp

My Personal Experience

In all our travels together, this is probably one thing that Kat and I will always remember. We stayed at the Teacher’s Camp for 3 nights as part of our study and we personally experienced something scary during our stay on the 3rd floor of a transient home.

We were unpacking our bags on the first day when Kat told me she needed to pee, so I accompanied her to the common restroom.

While I was waiting for her, we heard some people talking in Ilokano (Baguio’s local language) outside. Nothing too strange, right? It actually comforted us a bit, knowing that there were other people in the transient home aside from the lone caretaker downstairs.

Later on, as we were about to leave to conduct our research, we asked the caretaker how many people were staying on the same floor as us. He said that there was another family staying for the night.

We were about to breathe a sigh of relief when he added, “ Mamayang gabi sila dadating. Solo po muna kayo ngayon. (They’ll be arriving later tonight. You’re the only ones there right now.)”

Chills, man.

Teacher’s Camp is open 24/7, and you can stay in transient homes for as low as 300PHP (6USD) a night.

2. Loakan Road

baguio ghost tour

A taxi driver is on his way back home when he /gets flagged by a lady dressed in all white by the side of the road near Loakan. He picks her up and asks her where she’s going, but she says nothing.

After a minute or two, he looks in the rearview mirror to ask her again, but to his surprise, there’s nobody sitting in his backseat. It’s as if the lady just vanished into thin air.

Behind Loakan Road

Exit Teacher’s Camp and you’ll come face to face with this infamous haunted road in Baguio City. The road itself is already eerie in the dark, thanks to the rows of pine trees by its side, poorly-lit spots, and a naturally foggy atmosphere. What makes it even scarier though, is the story of the ghost that roams the site, looking for poor folks to spook at night.

According to local urban legends, the White Lady of Loakan, as she’s called, was a rape and murder victim whose body was dumped in the area. To this day, she hitchhikes random taxis and cars, still hoping to find her killer.

Many locals would advise avoiding this road completely in the dark as there have already been multiple accidents. allegedly due to frightened or surprised drivers. This and other ghostly encounters make Loakan Road one of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City.

3. Japanese Tunnel

baguio ghost tour

A couple is busy teasing each other while walking inside the tunnels for fun.

Out of nowhere, somebody taps the man on the back. He turns around, but there’s nobody there so the two get back to their antics.

This time, the man feels another tap, harder than before. Now annoyed, the man tells his girlfriend that someone’s playing a prank on them. They decide to check the inner tunnels for the prankster.

Inside one, they see a shadowy figure. The woman lights up the tunnel with her phone, only to find a man dressed in an old soldier’s uniform, with a bayonet still stuck in his bleeding chest.

Behind Japanese Tunnel

Back in the 1940s, the Japanese were said to have built numerous tunnel complexes underneath Baguio City in order to serve as emergency escape routes from their enemies.

Today, the opening to the tunnels can be found inside Baguio Botanical Garden. Rumor has it that this is also where Yamashita stored his famed Yamashita Treasure, but of course, there’s no scientific evidence that this treasure even exists in the first place.

Nevertheless, all these stories make it one of the scariest places in Baguio City, that’s for sure.

Japanese Tunnel is located inside Baguio Botanical Garden. It’s free to enter and open every day from 6AM to 6PM.

4. Secret Cemetery

baguio ghost tour

A young family is resting on the patio of their lodge at Camp John Hay, watching the sun set over the trees after a fun but tiring day.

Later on, while the wife brings the kids inside, the husband hears something strange in the distance. He realizes it’s the sound of native drums, seemingly coming from nearby.

Assuming it’s just from a parade of sorts, he thinks nothing of it, continuing to look out the patio. As the sound of humming drums comes closer and closer, he decides to check it out just to see what kind of event is underway.

To his surprise, it disappears the moment he steps out, the same time as strangely-shaped shadows on the road run in different directions.

baguio ghost tour

Behind Secret Cemetery

Many say that the reason why Camp John Hay is one of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City is because of its rich history. According to some urban legends, one area inside Camp John Hay actually used to be a burial site for native tribes living in the area.

When the Americans came and transformed Baguio into the city it has now become, the natives were forcefully driven out of their native lands. The Americans then decided to turn the area into a military base, building over the burial sites completely.

It sounds like the plot of a new Poltergeist movie, sure, but there are chances that it could be true. The local government is notorious for continuously forgetting to maintain old sites, even those with historical importance.

In 2014 , a US Navy veteran expressed his disappointment at the CJH admin allowing cows to ‘desecrate’ the WWII cemeteries inside the area, where almost 500 war vets are buried. “If only veterans buried there could talk.”

Secret Cemetery is a hidden site inside Camp John Hay. I’m not sure about the exact location, but it’s near some lodge accommodations. Have fun looking for it inside!

5. Murder Woods

liveloveran scariest places baguio city murder woods

Three friends are out drinking and experiencing the nightlife at the famed Camp John Hay.

It’s a wild night. One of the friends, too drunk to know what he’s doing, stumbles outside and finds himself face to face with the entrance of a densely packed forest nearby.

Deciding it’s a good time to pee, he enters the forest, just in time for his friends to see him go inside. The two friends call out to him, to no avail. They also try calling his mobile phone but they can’t even reach him.

Eventually, they had to call authorities to do a search, but their friend was never found. Authorities ruled it off as a runaway case, but to this day, the two remaining friends claim that they really did see their friend enter the forest, never to be seen again.

Behind Murder Woods

To be honest, I can’t find any sources regarding Camp John Hay’s Murder Woods, except for Pine City Fright Tours. According to Mr. Fright, the place got its moniker way back during the Japanese and American occupation in the Philippines.

Apparently, soldiers would take their prisoners here and kill them on the spot. The site is also a dumping ground for bodies, which makes its name quite suitable.

Other than that, there isn’t much documentation regarding this place. This seems to be one of those things that will forever remain to be an urban legend, or perhaps a horror story to be passed down from one generation to another.

Certainly one for the books – if you’re talking about the scariest places to visit in Baguio City, that is.

Murder Woods is also inside Camp John Hay!

6. Laperal ‘White’ House

liveloveran scariest places baguio city laperal house

A young woman and her friend were passing by the famed Laperal White House. As they pass by, she begins to retell an urban legend about the place.

Scared, the other girl tells her to stop. She laughs, saying it’s all just a joke and that the stories aren’t true.

They both look again at the house, only to see the ashen face of a young girl looking down at them from the empty attic window.

Behind Laperal House

Once you find out the backstory behind the house, you’ll see why this makes the list of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City.

There are many stories as to how the Laperal House, or the White House as it’s commonly called, became so haunted. Some say it was due to the Japanese occupation during World War II.

Others say it was already haunted right from the beginning. The house was formerly owned by Don and Dona Roberto and Victorina Laperal. It was built back in the early 1900s and served as the family’s summer home. They had six children and a nanny who took care of the younger kids. One by one, everyone in the family started dying. From the nanny who apparently killed herself up in the attic to the father who died on the steps of the house, nobody was spared.

Over the years, the house has turned into a popular tourist site in Baguio. Currently, it is closed to the public, but many visitors still report seeing strange shadows or hearing noises. It is said that sometimes, the little girl can still be seen waiting at the entrance, to this day.

My most recent visit to Baguio was actually just earlier this year when I went with K, my dad, and a couple of other family members for a two-night getaway from the city life.

I was determined to show my cousins all the scary sites on this list, but since my dad was the one driving (and believe me, he’s the biggest scaredy-cat of them all) he wouldn’t allow us to even step foot in any of them. He did relent when it came to the Laperal ‘White’ House, however, since it was just along the way.

We convinced him to slow down just as we were nearing the White House. I began retelling the story to my creeped-out cousins as we all looked out at the house, taking the entire view in.

Later on, when we got home, we began discussing the house again. This is where the spooky part begins. We all remembered seeing a vehicle parked in front of the house, but we couldn’t agree as to what it was.

I saw an old red coupe, Sza says she saw a blue Beetle, while Tine saw the weirdest one of the three: a brightly-colored Filipino-style jeepney with the word “survivor” written at the side.

After a few minutes of stubbornly insisting on what we each saw, we finally looked at the few snaps that we took when we passed by the house. Guess what?

There was no car parked there at all.

White House used to be open to tourists, but now you can only look at it from the outside.

7. Old Diplomat Hotel

liveloveran scariest places baguio city old diplomat hotel

A couple is hanging out at the Old Diplomat Hotel. They decide to play hide and seek, so the girl hides, while the guy counts to ten.

Finally, he begins his search. He hears her giggling in one of the rooms. Smirking to himself, he follows the sound, but upon arriving at the room, he realizes there’s no one there.

His girlfriend then appears, surprising him. Feeling a bit creeped out, the guy tells his girlfriend that they should probably go.

She laughs and then suddenly stops, a horrified look on her face. They run out screaming, as the headless priest dressed in all black stands still inside the room.

Behind Diplomat Hotel

No list of Baguio City’s most haunted sites would be complete without the Old Diplomat Hotel.

The hotel was originally built in 1911 as a retreat house for Dominican priests. During the Second World War, the building served as a refugee camp until it was hit by the Japanese. Reconstruction began in 1947 and went on for a year, finishing in 1948.

In the ’70s, Diplomat Hotels, Inc. acquired the hotel and opened it as a 33-bedroom hotel. It was managed by Tony Agpaoa, a part-time faith healer who falsely claimed to cure people of all kinds of ailments using his hands alone. This continued until 1982 when Agpaoa died from a heart attack at the age of 42.

As the years went by, Diplomat Hotel fell into ruins, giving it its current dilapidated look. In 2005, the city of Baguio took over the property, but by then, urban legends were already permeating the hotel’s walls. With stories talking about headless priests and disembodied cries, how Diplomat Hotel not be one of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City?

Old Diplomat Hotel is free of charge and it’s open from 8AM-5PM daily. If you want to stay after 5PM, you’ll have to arrange a private tour, just like we did.

Pine City Fright Tours

If you’d like to visit all of Baguio’s scariest places at once, I recommend that you check out Pine City Fright Tours . Some of the photos I used in this post were actually taken during my Fright Tour with Kat early last year. We paid around 900 PHP (18 USD) per person for a 4-hour tour.

Don’t let his looks fool ya, the owner and tour guide, Mr. Anton Villa-Abrille, is a very nice and approachable man. At first, Kat and I were a bit hesitant to interview him for our thesis because he wore all-black and looked kinda menacing, literally looking like a real-life Felonius Gru from Despicable Me. But, as it turns out, he’s actually really nice–just like Gru! He’s well-traveled and knows a lot about sites like the ones listed above. He’s also very knowledgeable about Baguio City in general and will tell you everything you need to know, and more.

Just don’t call them dark tourism sites as he doesn’t really agree with the labels! 🙂 For more details, check out Pine City Fright Tours’ official Facebook page .

So, what do you think? Do you like dark tourism sites? Have you ever gone to any of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!

til our next adventure,

baguio ghost tour

Me multo talaga sa teacher’s camp kasi me friends ako nagstay dun tapos nung gabi me narinig sila na mga batang tumatakbo pero pagtingin nila wala man. Haunted na talaga.

Looking for a place to visit today and found myself browsing your article (kinilabutan ako)😂😂😂 I’m not a fan of horror pero parang gusto kong puntahan mga to😁.

Tara @Crystal manghuli ng multo 😀

I used to know that the legend of Diplomat Hotel started in World War II, it says that a priest was beheaded by a Japanese troop in that place, while the nun was actually a nun killer

oh man i got goose bumps by reading about these places. these reminds me of the dunes that i saw in the deserts of Dubai that were also terrifying in the first look.

may experience din kami ng mga ka-work ko dati sa Teachers Camp. May company outing kami that time at Baguio ang napili ng management na puntahan at sa Teachers Camp kami nag stay during our 3days and 2nights excursion. Di ko tanda kung ilang rooms ang inupahan namin, normally ang magkakasama sa room yung magkaka department. Every morning napagku-kwentuhan namin yung naeexperience namin nung kinagabihan na yun at guess what lahat kami iisa yung narinig nung unang gabing pa lang namin. May mga naglalakad sa hallway bandang madaling araw na at my sumigaw na babae. Pero hindi namin iniisip na kakatakutan yun. Ang weird lang halos lahat kami yun ang narinig.

We are currently staying rn in Teacher’s Camp, lagi naming nadadaanan yung Laperal at Loakan Rd, and yesterday, nasa Camp John Hay kami and ngayon, nagbabalak kami pumunta ng Diplomat Hotel. Wish us luck! emz. Advance Happy New Year everyone!

Inside Baguio’s Most Haunted: The Laperal White House

Inside Baguio’s Most Haunted: The Laperal White House

By continuing to read this article, you agree to double check with the authorities or other concerned entities for the latest updates.

I felt a strong presence inside the house.

Artful presence, nothing paranormal. Art has taken over the first floor of the Laperal White House, but most people are here to satisfy their curiosity about the feared and unexplainable.

They say that behind the mist that blankets the hills and streets of the City of Pines are countless mysteries and tales of horror. The map of Baguio, they say, is dotted with haunted houses and cursed hotels that have sheltered restless — and sometimes hostile — ghosts and spirits. One of them — the Laperal White House.

The very supernatural presence of Mica. Don't worry, she's very friendly.

WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS GUIDE?

The Haunting

The Laperal White House is an eye-snatcher along Leonard Road, just beside the allegedly equally spirit-infested Teachers’ Camp. There have been many stories. Some unfortunate passersby have seen a little girl standing motionless on the third step of the staircase that fronts the house. Some have spotted a woman looking out its glass windows. Some have heard angry voices and loud noises from inside the house even when it was completely empty. Others have claimed they had this awful feeling of being unwelcome and being watched. The guards are also terrified to go in at night.

The house was originally beige, but was later repainted white.

One day, the caretaker of the house, who stays in another house within the premises, ordered a guard to cut down a fortune plant on one side of the house. The guard fell ill and could not walk for days. A guard also shared his personal experience inside. Once while he was doing the rounds inside, he received a call from his wife. The call went fine until she asked who he was with at the time. The wife apparently kept hearing a woman’s voice. Thing is, the guard was all alone.

Even the residents and staff of neighboring establishments have their share of White House spooky encounters. One incident involving a clairvoyant happened at PNKY’s Restaurant just across the notorious house. “At that time PNKY’s was just on ground level,” Ferdz Decena of Ironwulf.net narrates. “When the Clairvoyant looked at the mirror of the restaurant, she was stunned when she saw a woman standing behind her along with the reflection of the house.”

Vincent Tabor of Lakbay Baguio has also written about his personal experience when he was in High School. “We saw a white figure (could be fog) that is coming down from the attic down to the front entrance,” he recalls. “Suddenly my friend started running so I followed. When I asked him why, he said he saw a woman coming towards us.”

The History

The White House’s Amityville reputation might have been a product of its long, bloody history. Boasting an American Colonial architecture, this house was built in 1920, back when the country was under American rule. It was the home of the Laperal family, one of the oldest clans in Baguio, headed by Don Roberto. His wife Dona Victorina was said to be very fond of the fortune plants in the garden.

At the height of World War II, terror knocked on their door in the form of Japanese soldiers. The house was transformed into a garrison, where — again, if some stories are to be believed  — they brutally tortured and murdered many. Among them, the Laperal family, except Don Roberto, who would survive the war only to accidentally slip and fall to his death from the stairs in front of the house.

But who are the little girl on the stairs and the woman by the window? The little girl was said to have been killed in another accident. Running after her nanny who was on the other side, the poor girl crossed the street and was run over. The nanny (not sure if the same nanny or another) was also killed in one of the bedrooms of the house. It is believed that the woman standing by the window, looking over the street was the nanny.

One of the bedrooms of the house

The Art House

Today, the Laperal White House is now owned by business tycoon Lucio Tan. Now open to the public, it hosts the Ifugao Bamboo Carving Gallery, a joint project of the Philippine Bamboo Foundation and Tan Yan Kee Foundation. The exhibit aims to “bring to the attention of the public the increasing importance of bamboo in the preservation of arts and culture of the Cordilleras, prevention of landslides and soil erosion, and pollution control.”

The ground floor of the house has been converted into a gallery

The gallery is on the ground floor, but visitors are free to roam around the rest of the house if they are brave enough. The art is excellent, but my guess is that most people who enter the house are there to indulge their craving for mystery, satisfy their curiosity, or simply to scare themselves.

The living area of the house. Imagine someone is sitting there looking at you. Boo.

My friend Mica and I took our time exploring and taking plenty of pictures. It was early morning and save for the few staff, we were the only souls inside — living souls, that is. We checked out all the rooms, climbed the freakily narrow staircase, and even reached the empty attic. Perhaps I was just trying to make myself believe that I was tough and all. Perhaps we were never *really* alone. Perhaps the place fosters a chillier, more frightening atmosphere at night.  But I really did not feel anything strange or creepy. It was an ordinary open house sightseeing moment for me.

Not that I was asking for something out of the ordinary to happen.

Hi Mr. Henry we are conducting a research regarding la peral, may we schedule an interview with you if you are available?

Tito Salvador

That house is owned by my Grandfather Tentoy and Inag Laperal. We used to go up to Baquio during summers, because it was so hot in Manila. No ghost there. I remember there is a tennis court in the back of the house and the caretaker lives in the garage under the house. Hot water is brought up the bathroom because of the old plumbing.

I wanna visit tht place

You will see what you wanted to see. The Laperal’s of Baguio are our relatives (my mom’s side). They have several properties in Baguio. Historic places like old houses are often scary because most of the time people indulge that kind of feeling. On the brighter side, if we learn to appreciate the sophistication of architecture and art, we may have a different response than being scared. My grandma, told me to try staying in Laperal’s Hotel sometime if I go to Baguio. It is worth to try, she said.. nothing really mysterious.

I was searching for information about Laperal, then came across your blog. Interesting blog name! Funny, I have a Pinterest board titled “Rich Traveler.” :D

baguio ghost tour

Awesome post!!! I love going on ghost tours! I went to one when I was in Australia - probably around 7-9 years old then - and it scared the hell out of me. I can still remember the faint, musty smell that came from one of the "torture" rooms in an underground passage we visited. Your experience makes me want to go to Baguio and sign up for this too! >_< Love your writing style by the way. Really complements the tone and topic.

baguio ghost tour

I've never been on a ghost tour before, this sounds creepy as hell though! I'm tempted now :D

OMG!! Not sure if I would trade a nice and quiet stroll around the city for a spooky and mysterious tour. But well done courageous lady! Loved the post, good to know that in Baguio we can find such unique experiences. Cheers, Nat

I'm not a big fan of ghost tours, I'm always too afraid :D what you described in your article sounds so creepy!

I´ve never been on a ghost tour, sounds positively freaky!!!!

Great post. I like to cover huanted places and there are many in India. Greate pics complementing the story.

You are one brave girl. When we went to Baguio, my friends were very much into ghost tours but I am too scared for that so I left them to do their own thing. Waaah especially since it's known to have a lot there.

baguio ghost tour

I don't believe in ghosts, but this actually sounded pretty spooky! Great writing and descriptions of the tour. Those laughing toddlers haha-can't believe the parents brought them either!

baguio ghost tour

i want a ghost tour, too! :D pero gusto ko sobrang dami ng kasama like 30 plus hahaha

baguio ghost tour

We love ghost tours. Some are far better than others. The stop at the mansion would have definitely creeped me out from your description. :)

Interesting take on the city!

I love going on ghost tours, and this sounded like fun!

I find ghost tours really fascinating! I went on one a few years ago in Sydney and it was both funny and scary - this one looks like an interesting way to explore the city.

I always wanted to see this place! I was too young to do it the late I visited Baguio, hopefully soon!

So creepy! I love exploring abandoned buildings, didn't even know about this one!

Wow! Creepy and fascinating at the same time! I'm easily scared so not sure if I would be brave enough to do this!!

Anton sounds like a great guide. Did you believe?

I've never been on a ghost tour but there's one here in Seoul that I've been wanting to check out!

Love a good ghost tour! I just went on one in Seoul, I was anticipating creepy and scary, but aadly it wasn't! This one sounds like it would scare me a lot!

Never been to a ghost tour and wouldn't never dare to go to one.

baguio ghost tour

Sounds like something we would like to try! Brilliant narration and photos !!

Seriously, I'm ready to go on a weekend adventure here on halloween!!

Love your pictures and telling! Great halloween like adventure :D We'd have loved to go here, but didn't make it in our last trip. Hopefully a next one we will!

You're so brave to actually go there! I'd be so terrified :D

Sounds creepy! Perfect post for October (with Halloween looming)! I've never done a ghost tour, but sounds like fun! http://www.lifeismyoyster.com

We love exploring abandoned places ourselves and are avid "urbexers", granted we go without permission, but it is for the history and the atmosphere that you just can't describe! We have had some pretty spooky moments! I think we would love this!

Creepy! I think this would give me nightmares! :)

AHAH I am kind of a baby when it comes to ghosts and horror, so I probably would not have the BEST time here ahahah

baguio ghost tour

A Civil Engineer will be astonished how well this antique haunted house remained strong. A powerful earthquake and a couple of super strong typhoons never brought it down.

I stayed for 5 days at teachers camp. We lock our rooms all the time, when we came back it's unlocked. This happens during our entire stay in the village. Maybe the door is broken or something? Then the toilet cistern keeps on clanging..not flushing mind you... maybe the blasted thing needs fixing as well. Then one night at about 2 to 3 am all hell broke lose! The girls dorm went crazy, the chicks came running out screaming "Ghost! Ghost! someone one was crying in agony in their toilet. No one was there. The Chicks left in a hurry. some of the brave gals stayed and ignored the crying. Seems that the Ghost only cries and didn't hurt anyone. I heard the crying like this before in one of my newly rented retail shop. we where all men about 6 of us. We turned chicken that day. I acted brave and tried to look cool by checking the toilet out. I swear the crying was right besides me but no one was there! No wonder the stupid landlord gave me such cheap rent! Anyhoo, I blasted the place with Vanilla Ice song (Ice Ice baby) for the whole week non stop and it drove the Mamaw out of my shop! Loud music if you want these spooks out of your humble abode.

7 Scariest Places To Visit In Baguio City

baguio ghost tour

Last Updated on November 8, 2021 by Ran

Some of you may know that I majored in tourism when I was in college. However, only a few people know about one of my main interests in this area: dark tourism .

Dark tourism is the study of places dealing with death, tragedy, and horror. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in such places. So interested, in fact, that I proposed the topic to my college BFF Kat for our undergraduate thesis. After all, I’ve always been a fan of horror and macabre, so it’s only natural that I would go down that route, isn’t it?

Today, I’m going to share the 7 scariest places to visit in Baguio City based on our research, plus the horror stories that go along with them.

I have to warn you though, these places are not for the faint of heart. Keep that in mind if you’re planning to go for a spooktacular adventure to discover Baguio City’s most haunted sites!

Table of Contents

1. Teacher’s Camp

liveloveran scariest places baguio city teacher's camp

The Horror Story

A group of friends decides to stay in one of the dormitories-turned-transient-homes inside Teacher’s Camp.

Come midnight, one girl wakes up to the sound of heavy footsteps and knocks outside their door. She gets up, still sleepy, and opens the door, thinking it’s just one of her friends who might have used the restroom. Nobody comes in so she decides to leave the door open before coming back to bed.

Suddenly, she hears the sound again, this time much worse: the sound of someone dragging their chain-bounded feet on the floor, slowly getting closer and closer to their open room.

liveloveran scariest places baguio city teacher's camp

Behind Teacher’s Camp

From the outside, Baguio’s Teacher’s Camp is seen as a premier event and training center for professionals, especially teachers, from all around the Philippines. Built in 1908 to serve this purpose for American ‘Thomasite’ teachers, the camp has already seen countless stories, both of success and horror alike.

During World War II, Japanese soldiers used the site to hold hundreds of people captive. Numerous people are said to have been beheaded and killed at the camp, making it no surprise to hear all the horror stories culminating in the place.

Top 7 scariest places to visit in Baguio City, you say? There’s no way Teacher’s Camp can’t make it into the list.

liveloveran scariest places baguio city teacher's camp

My Personal Experience

In all our travels together, this is probably one thing that Kat and I will always remember. We stayed at the Teacher’s Camp for 3 nights as part of our study and we personally experienced something scary during our stay on the 3rd floor of a transient home.

We were unpacking our bags on the first day when Kat told me she needed to pee, so I accompanied her to the common restroom.

While I was waiting for her, we heard some people talking in Ilokano (Baguio’s local language) outside. Nothing too strange, right? It actually comforted us a bit, knowing that there were other people in the transient home aside from the lone caretaker downstairs.

Later on, as we were about to leave to conduct our research, we asked the caretaker how many people were staying on the same floor as us. He said that there was another family staying for the night.

We were about to breathe a sigh of relief when he added, “ Mamayang gabi sila dadating. Solo po muna kayo ngayon. (They’ll be arriving later tonight. You’re the only ones there right now.)”

Chills, man.

Teacher’s Camp is open 24/7, and you can stay in transient homes for as low as 300PHP (6USD) a night.

2. Loakan Road

baguio ghost tour

A taxi driver is on his way back home when he /gets flagged by a lady dressed in all white by the side of the road near Loakan. He picks her up and asks her where she’s going, but she says nothing.

After a minute or two, he looks in the rearview mirror to ask her again, but to his surprise, there’s nobody sitting in his backseat. It’s as if the lady just vanished into thin air.

Behind Loakan Road

Exit Teacher’s Camp and you’ll come face to face with this infamous haunted road in Baguio City. The road itself is already eerie in the dark, thanks to the rows of pine trees by its side, poorly-lit spots, and a naturally foggy atmosphere. What makes it even scarier though, is the story of the ghost that roams the site, looking for poor folks to spook at night.

According to local urban legends, the White Lady of Loakan, as she’s called, was a rape and murder victim whose body was dumped in the area. To this day, she hitchhikes random taxis and cars, still hoping to find her killer.

Many locals would advise avoiding this road completely in the dark as there have already been multiple accidents. allegedly due to frightened or surprised drivers. This and other ghostly encounters make Loakan Road one of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City.

3. Japanese Tunnel

baguio ghost tour

A couple is busy teasing each other while walking inside the tunnels for fun.

Out of nowhere, somebody taps the man on the back. He turns around, but there’s nobody there so the two get back to their antics.

This time, the man feels another tap, harder than before. Now annoyed, the man tells his girlfriend that someone’s playing a prank on them. They decide to check the inner tunnels for the prankster.

Inside one, they see a shadowy figure. The woman lights up the tunnel with her phone, only to find a man dressed in an old soldier’s uniform, with a bayonet still stuck in his bleeding chest.

Behind Japanese Tunnel

Back in the 1940s, the Japanese were said to have built numerous tunnel complexes underneath Baguio City in order to serve as emergency escape routes from their enemies.

Today, the opening to the tunnels can be found inside Baguio Botanical Garden. Rumor has it that this is also where Yamashita stored his famed Yamashita Treasure, but of course, there’s no scientific evidence that this treasure even exists in the first place.

Nevertheless, all these stories make it one of the scariest places in Baguio City, that’s for sure.

Japanese Tunnel is located inside Baguio Botanical Garden. It’s free to enter and open every day from 6AM to 6PM.

4. Secret Cemetery

baguio ghost tour

A young family is resting on the patio of their lodge at Camp John Hay, watching the sun set over the trees after a fun but tiring day.

Later on, while the wife brings the kids inside, the husband hears something strange in the distance. He realizes it’s the sound of native drums, seemingly coming from nearby.

Assuming it’s just from a parade of sorts, he thinks nothing of it, continuing to look out the patio. As the sound of humming drums comes closer and closer, he decides to check it out just to see what kind of event is underway.

To his surprise, it disappears the moment he steps out, the same time as strangely-shaped shadows on the road run in different directions.

baguio ghost tour

Behind Secret Cemetery

Many say that the reason why Camp John Hay is one of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City is because of its rich history. According to some urban legends, one area inside Camp John Hay actually used to be a burial site for native tribes living in the area.

When the Americans came and transformed Baguio into the city it has now become, the natives were forcefully driven out of their native lands. The Americans then decided to turn the area into a military base, building over the burial sites completely.

It sounds like the plot of a new Poltergeist movie, sure, but there are chances that it could be true. The local government is notorious for continuously forgetting to maintain old sites, even those with historical importance.

In 2014 , a US Navy veteran expressed his disappointment at the CJH admin allowing cows to ‘desecrate’ the WWII cemeteries inside the area, where almost 500 war vets are buried. “If only veterans buried there could talk.”

Secret Cemetery is a hidden site inside Camp John Hay. I’m not sure about the exact location, but it’s near some lodge accommodations. Have fun looking for it inside!

5. Murder Woods

liveloveran scariest places baguio city murder woods

Three friends are out drinking and experiencing the nightlife at the famed Camp John Hay.

It’s a wild night. One of the friends, too drunk to know what he’s doing, stumbles outside and finds himself face to face with the entrance of a densely packed forest nearby.

Deciding it’s a good time to pee, he enters the forest, just in time for his friends to see him go inside. The two friends call out to him, to no avail. They also try calling his mobile phone but they can’t even reach him.

Eventually, they had to call authorities to do a search, but their friend was never found. Authorities ruled it off as a runaway case, but to this day, the two remaining friends claim that they really did see their friend enter the forest, never to be seen again.

Behind Murder Woods

To be honest, I can’t find any sources regarding Camp John Hay’s Murder Woods, except for Pine City Fright Tours. According to Mr. Fright, the place got its moniker way back during the Japanese and American occupation in the Philippines.

Apparently, soldiers would take their prisoners here and kill them on the spot. The site is also a dumping ground for bodies, which makes its name quite suitable.

Other than that, there isn’t much documentation regarding this place. This seems to be one of those things that will forever remain to be an urban legend, or perhaps a horror story to be passed down from one generation to another.

Certainly one for the books – if you’re talking about the scariest places to visit in Baguio City, that is.

Murder Woods is also inside Camp John Hay!

6. Laperal ‘White’ House

liveloveran scariest places baguio city laperal house

A young woman and her friend were passing by the famed Laperal White House. As they pass by, she begins to retell an urban legend about the place.

Scared, the other girl tells her to stop. She laughs, saying it’s all just a joke and that the stories aren’t true.

They both look again at the house, only to see the ashen face of a young girl looking down at them from the empty attic window.

Behind Laperal House

Once you find out the backstory behind the house, you’ll see why this makes the list of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City.

There are many stories as to how the Laperal House, or the White House as it’s commonly called, became so haunted. Some say it was due to the Japanese occupation during World War II.

Others say it was already haunted right from the beginning. The house was formerly owned by Don and Dona Roberto and Victorina Laperal. It was built back in the early 1900s and served as the family’s summer home. They had six children and a nanny who took care of the younger kids. One by one, everyone in the family started dying. From the nanny who apparently killed herself up in the attic to the father who died on the steps of the house, nobody was spared.

Over the years, the house has turned into a popular tourist site in Baguio. Currently, it is closed to the public, but many visitors still report seeing strange shadows or hearing noises. It is said that sometimes, the little girl can still be seen waiting at the entrance, to this day.

My most recent visit to Baguio was actually just earlier this year when I went with K, my dad, and a couple of other family members for a two-night getaway from the city life.

I was determined to show my cousins all the scary sites on this list, but since my dad was the one driving (and believe me, he’s the biggest scaredy-cat of them all) he wouldn’t allow us to even step foot in any of them. He did relent when it came to the Laperal ‘White’ House, however, since it was just along the way.

We convinced him to slow down just as we were nearing the White House. I began retelling the story to my creeped-out cousins as we all looked out at the house, taking the entire view in.

Later on, when we got home, we began discussing the house again. This is where the spooky part begins. We all remembered seeing a vehicle parked in front of the house, but we couldn’t agree as to what it was.

I saw an old red coupe, Sza says she saw a blue Beetle, while Tine saw the weirdest one of the three: a brightly-colored Filipino-style jeepney with the word “survivor” written at the side.

After a few minutes of stubbornly insisting on what we each saw, we finally looked at the few snaps that we took when we passed by the house. Guess what?

There was no car parked there at all.

White House used to be open to tourists, but now you can only look at it from the outside.

7. Old Diplomat Hotel

liveloveran scariest places baguio city old diplomat hotel

A couple is hanging out at the Old Diplomat Hotel. They decide to play hide and seek, so the girl hides, while the guy counts to ten.

Finally, he begins his search. He hears her giggling in one of the rooms. Smirking to himself, he follows the sound, but upon arriving at the room, he realizes there’s no one there.

His girlfriend then appears, surprising him. Feeling a bit creeped out, the guy tells his girlfriend that they should probably go.

She laughs and then suddenly stops, a horrified look on her face. They run out screaming, as the headless priest dressed in all black stands still inside the room.

Behind Diplomat Hotel

No list of Baguio City’s most haunted sites would be complete without the Old Diplomat Hotel.

The hotel was originally built in 1911 as a retreat house for Dominican priests. During the Second World War, the building served as a refugee camp until it was hit by the Japanese. Reconstruction began in 1947 and went on for a year, finishing in 1948.

In the ’70s, Diplomat Hotels, Inc. acquired the hotel and opened it as a 33-bedroom hotel. It was managed by Tony Agpaoa, a part-time faith healer who falsely claimed to cure people of all kinds of ailments using his hands alone. This continued until 1982 when Agpaoa died from a heart attack at the age of 42.

As the years went by, Diplomat Hotel fell into ruins, giving it its current dilapidated look. In 2005, the city of Baguio took over the property, but by then, urban legends were already permeating the hotel’s walls. With stories talking about headless priests and disembodied cries, how Diplomat Hotel not be one of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City?

Old Diplomat Hotel is free of charge and it’s open from 8AM-5PM daily. If you want to stay after 5PM, you’ll have to arrange a private tour, just like we did.

If you’d like to visit all of Baguio’s scariest places at once, I recommend that you check out Pine City Fright Tours . Some of the photos I used in this post were actually taken during my Fright Tour with Kat early last year. We paid around 900 PHP (18 USD) per person for a 4-hour tour.

Don’t let his looks fool ya, the owner and tour guide, Mr. Anton Villa-Abrille, is a very nice and approachable man. At first, Kat and I were a bit hesitant to interview him for our thesis because he wore all-black and looked kinda menacing, literally looking like a real-life Felonius Gru from Despicable Me. But, as it turns out, he’s actually really nice–just like Gru! He’s well-traveled and knows a lot about sites like the ones listed above. He’s also very knowledgeable about Baguio City in general and will tell you everything you need to know, and more.

Just don’t call them dark tourism sites as he doesn’t really agree with the labels! 🙂 For more details, check out Pine City Fright Tours’ official Facebook page .

So, what do you think? Do you like dark tourism sites? Have you ever gone to any of the scariest places to visit in Baguio City? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!

til our next adventure,

baguio ghost tour

Me multo talaga sa teacher’s camp kasi me friends ako nagstay dun tapos nung gabi me narinig sila na mga batang tumatakbo pero pagtingin nila wala man. Haunted na talaga.

Looking for a place to visit today and found myself browsing your article (kinilabutan ako)😂😂😂 I’m not a fan of horror pero parang gusto kong puntahan mga to😁.

Tara @Crystal manghuli ng multo 😀

I used to know that the legend of Diplomat Hotel started in World War II, it says that a priest was beheaded by a Japanese troop in that place, while the nun was actually a nun killer

oh man i got goose bumps by reading about these places. these reminds me of the dunes that i saw in the deserts of Dubai that were also terrifying in the first look.

may experience din kami ng mga ka-work ko dati sa Teachers Camp. May company outing kami that time at Baguio ang napili ng management na puntahan at sa Teachers Camp kami nag stay during our 3days and 2nights excursion. Di ko tanda kung ilang rooms ang inupahan namin, normally ang magkakasama sa room yung magkaka department. Every morning napagku-kwentuhan namin yung naeexperience namin nung kinagabihan na yun at guess what lahat kami iisa yung narinig nung unang gabing pa lang namin. May mga naglalakad sa hallway bandang madaling araw na at my sumigaw na babae. Pero hindi namin iniisip na kakatakutan yun. Ang weird lang halos lahat kami yun ang narinig.

We are currently staying rn in Teacher’s Camp, lagi naming nadadaanan yung Laperal at Loakan Rd, and yesterday, nasa Camp John Hay kami and ngayon, nagbabalak kami pumunta ng Diplomat Hotel. Wish us luck! emz. Advance Happy New Year everyone!

Immersive 'fright tour' in Baguio City serves bone-chilling entertainment

Heads up, horror fans!

You might want to include this immersive "fright tour" in your next Baguio City itinerary.

The Pine City Fright Tours takes visitors on interactive tours around haunted places in Baguio City, such as the Japanese Tunnel built in World War 2, Diplomat Hotel, and Laperal House.

The tours feature a mix of bone-chilling entertainment as well as some historical background on the haunted sites.

Featured in an iJuander report on Saturday, the fright tours piqued the curiosity of visitors and frightened them as well.

"Nakaka-excite nung una kasi parang, nakaka-curious yung itsura [ng haunted site]," said a fright tour goer.

"Nagpupunta po ako nung horror house. Pero interesting din po pala na mag-tour sa isang place na hindi ka familiar. And then, on the spot na malaman mo yung history. Nakaka-cringe po. Parang chilling to the bones pa rin," another guest said.

The tours are led by Anton Abrille, or better known as Mr. Fright when he's wearing a skeleton mask and black robes.

Abrille started doing fright tours in 2015, a year after he left his video editing job in Manila.

"I noticed that there was a sheer lack of this type of tour in the Philippines so I picked Baguio City as the perfect place to do it, because of the history of Baguio City itself. It has a lot of ghost stories," Abrille said.

His passion for ghost stories and haunted places stemmed from his childhood, during which he claimed to have developed his sixth sense.

Even if they were laden with historical facts, Abrille's fright tours are purely "for entertainment."

"That is basically just for entertainment purposes. It's not really meant to be taken literally or seriously. Obviously, it's not to be taken heavily," he said.

In 2014, Baguio City was listed by National Geographic as one of the World's 10 Most Haunted Cities, because it housed the abandoned Diplomat Hotel.

The hotel was said to have harbored noisy spirits of nuns and priests who were supposedly beheaded during World War 2.

Laperal White House TikTok Horror Story | May nagparamdam! 😱

Video credit: GOLDIE GEE via YouTube

The Laperal White House is a dilapidated, American colonial-era white mansion by Leonard Wood. It’s located near the city’s popular drinking spots.

Initially, it was the residence of a wealthy businessman and his family. During the Japanese occupation, it became a military post where soldiers were said to have killed locals, to which the mansion’s eeriness is attributed.

Passers-by often saw a “white lady” standing on the third front porch step. Guards, caretakers, and paranormal investigators have also heard footsteps coming from inside the mansion.

In 2021, makeup artist and YouTuber GOLDIE GEE who’s known for camouflage makeup went viral for her hair-raising experience in front of Laperal House which was caught on camera .  Her ponytailed hair moved despite the wind being calm, and, when she got home, she found out that there were scratches on her shoulder and back.

I stayed at the HAUNTED Teacher's Camp in the Philippines AND THIS HAPPENED....

Video credit: AmysCrypt via YouTube

Teacher’s Camp is an affordable accommodation in Baguio that potentially comes with a free paranormal experience. It’s also in Leonard Wood Road, just a stone’s throw away from Laperal White House.

The place was built during the American colonial period as a training camp for teachers. During World War II, Japanese soldiers used this as a hospital but killings may have also taken place at the site.

A white lady, a headless priest, and a woman soaked in blood are said to haunt Teacher’s Camp. Previous guests have also heard noises at night even when they’re the only ones in their building, including the sound of something dragging its chain-bound feet across the floor.

You can check out its premises for free during the day or you can also book a stay in one of its rooms or guesthouses to get the whole spooky experience.

Baguio haunted places - Casa Vallejo

Casa Vallejo is another haunted accommodation in Baguio that you can still book for your vacation.

Built in 1909 and among the oldest buildings in the city, it has gone through many historical events . It was a detention center for German Prisoners of War in 1917 and a British and Indian refugee center in 1940. The building also survived carpet bombing during World War II.

Most guests who experience the paranormal in Casa Vallejo only hear crying at night. However, you might bump into 3 otherworldly guests that still linger in the hotel’s hallways.

TV Patrol: Former Hyatt Hotel site in Baguio haunted?

Video credit: ABS-CBN News via YouTube 

South Drive was the location of the 12-story Hyatt Hotel which collapsed and killed nearly 100 employees during the devastating 1990 Luzon earthquake.

Although the hotel had been reduced to ruins, people have claimed to see ghosts on the property or the street in front of it. One witness even saw a group of ghosts dancing. Some people even smell kalachuchi (plumeria), which is often associated with the dead, in the area.

Since the road is said to be a hotspot for the supernatural, motorists sound their horns before crossing the pedestrian lane in front of the gate of the former hotel site. They do this to pay respects to the deceased and keep restless ghosts away.

In 2020, the construction of a new hotel began in the former Hyatt hotel site, which honestly gives us the spooks.

Address: South Drive, Baguio City

Baguio haunted places - Loakan Road

Another popular haunted road in Baguio is Loakan Road that’s said to be haunted by a white lady.

According to stories, the white lady gets in the passenger or back seat of private cars and taxis, asking to be taken to the city. Local legend says that this is the spirit of a woman who had been a rape-slay victim and whose body was dumped by the side of the road.

Besides the white lady, there was also another supernatural phenomenon in Loakan Road. There used to be a pine tree in the middle of the road that brought illness to those who attempted to cut it.

However, the said tree died in 2001 and was removed the following year.

Address: Loakan Road, Baguio City

Fort Gen. Gregorio Del Pilar, Philippine Military Academy, Baguio, Philippines

You can expect at least 1 resident supernatural being at the 373-hectare Philippine Military Academy (PMA) in Baguio.

Things falling and doors being shut are said to be common occurrences in the academy. However, what sends chills down military trainees’ spines is a faceless ghost cadet who likes to do his rounds at nighttime. Sometimes, cadets also hear a ghost platoon marching at night.

PMA grounds

There are also non-military ghosts that reportedly haunt the academy, including a headless priest.

Paranormal activity seems to be more active in the academy at night, but it’s only open to visitors during the day.

The ruins of the old  Diplomat Hotel is arguably the most popular haunted spot in Baguio – and understandably so.

Visitors have repeatedly seen and caught headless priests, nuns, and children in photos and videos taken at the place.

If you’re wondering why there are many headless ghosts in these Baguio haunted locations, it’s because beheading was a common execution method during World War II.

The Diplomat Hotel being one of the most active haunted places in Baguio doesn’t come as a surprise, with many tragic points in its history. It became a refugee camp during World War II but was raided, which led to bloodshed. It was also bombed after Japanese soldiers turned it into their headquarters.

Tourists can visit Diplomat Hotel for free but are not allowed to stay until the evening or overnight for security reasons.

REAL GHOST caught on camera? | HAUNTED TUNNEL underneath Baguio

Following the history of some of the aforementioned places, the Japanese tunnels in Baguio is another place that many believe to be haunted – and with good reason.

According to history, the Japanese used the tunnel system for storing ammunition and weapons. Later on, they were used as an escape route from their enemies. At some point, the Americans discovered the Japanese tunnel, which led to the bombing of all its entrances, leaving tons of Japanese soldiers to die while trapped inside.

It’s believed that their souls still live within the tunnels. Since its reopening, people claim to have seen headless ghosts and heard strange voices and noises coming from the tunnel.

HORRIFYING MURDER WOODS in the PHILIPPINES (MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN BAGUIO) 👻🎃

Video credit: The Hungry Syrian Wanderer via YouTube 

Murder Woods is another spot whose history originated from the Japanese occupation. True to its name, Murder Woods used to be a dense forest at Camp John Hay where American, then later on, Japanese soldiers would take their prisoners and execute them on the spot, leaving them there without a proper burial.

There have been stories of people going into the forest and disappearing without a trace. Some have also claimed that ghosts and even mythical creatures such as duwende (dwarf or goblin) were captured on camera there.

This spot is certainly one that you should at least proceed with caution if you ever dare to visit.

Address: Loakan Road, Baguio City ​

If you’re looking for an alternative vacation experience in the mountain city, consider visiting these diverse Baguio haunted spots.

When you do, remember to stay safe and be respectful to both the living and the dead, so unseen beings stay where they are and don’t follow you home.

Ghost tours are a thing now! Baguio city has its first licensed ghost tour operator!

baguio ghost tour

Got a tip? Send it to us at [email protected] .

It’s called Pine City Fright Tours and it can provide that extra chill to your Baguio trip. It’s the first tour company in Baguio to provide ghost tours. As in, for two hours, you go around hitting Baguio’s famed haunted places. You can also go ghost-hunting.

The Pine City Fright Tour was put up by an ex-film editor/freelance videographer Anton Villa-Abrille in March. “I’ve always been fond of Baguio, I spent many summers up here. I got tired of working for other people so I decided to go into a business for myself. What better place to do a ghost tour than in a haunted city?” Needless to say, Villa-Abrille is a huge horror fan.

Villa-Abrille himself conducts the tours which start at about 5pm. He meets his guests, usually in SM Baguio and for two hours, he’ll take them out for a ride, making three stops and four drive-bys to some of Baguio’s popular haunted places.

Baguio is a four hour-drive north of Manila. Located in Benguet province, Baguio city is a favorite summer destination among Filipinos because that’s when we get to wear boots and sweaters — it’s cool and chill. In 1990, an earthquake struck, causing massive destruction and killing thousands. That’s when Baguio started building a reputation as a haunted city — at least for people who grew up in the ’90s who are now in their 30’s.  

Most of these so-called haunted places are closed at night, but Pine City Fright Tour is a legit little thing, licensed by the local government of Baguio. Villa-Abrille has special permits that allow him to take his guests in these establishments at night.

“I also offer a two-hour ghost hunting package,” he adds. Among the places he takes his guests to is the Laperal House, while the ghosting package takes place in the Old Diplomat Hotel.

baguio ghost tour

A minimum of three persons is required for a tour to push through. Should guests prefer they get picked up and dropped off at their hotels, they can just choose a premium package. Pine City Fright Tours charge PHP500 for adults and PHP350 for students.

Villa-Abrille is not a psychic, spiritista or a medium. “I’m just a paranormal investigor who has seen his share.” Villa-Abrille moved to Baguio and immersed himself in research to try and prove the stories he’s heard as a child were not just kwentong barbero .

It took him all of seven months to finish his research, which he supplemented with interviews of caretakers, previous owners, survivors, and eyewitnesses. “Each place I take my guests to, I give a historical background and then a paranormal account.”

Villa-Abrille says he would rather not focus on the 1990 earthquake that left more than 2,000 people dead. “That’s a subject I don’t like to get into, actually. It’s still a sensitive topic for the locals. Besides, Baguio has a long paranormal history. The quake just contributed to it.”

Surprisingly, the local government of Baguio was very receptive of Villa-Abrille’s idea. “When I explained that I wanted to promote Baguio and give tourists something else to do, you could say the local government was very helpful. That’s what I love about Baguio. Everyone has a ghost story to tell.”

Barely braving Baguio City's ‘Pine City Fright Tour’

Yes, last week I could have done the basic Baguio tour: Burnham Park, the ukay-ukay and La Trinidad. Instead, I decided to put on a brave face and signed up for the Pine City Fright Tours – a visit of Baguio spots that are allegedly haunted. Having convinced myself the tour was an adrenaline junky's dream ride, sans the heights and the water, I braced myself for heart-attack city. Setting off at around 6 p.m., we headed for the first stop, the Laperal House. All the members of the Laperal family were said to have died tragically. It was also said that Japanese forces tortured people in the house during World War 2.

Baguio: The haunted city of the Philippine north

  • Post author By Yvette Uy Tan
  • Post date November 6, 2018

baguio ghost tour

Baguio City, located in the mountains of Benguet province, is the summer capital of the Philippines. People flock to Baguio during the summer months to bask in the cool weather and pine-scented mountain air. Aside from being the summer capital, Baguio also has the reputation of being one of the most haunted cities in the Philippines. Baguio was built by the Americans when they claimed the Philippines as a colony. Baguio City was planned by Daniel Burnham, famous for city planning Chicago. Baguio was heavily bombed by Allied planes during World War II as part of the American army’s carpet bombing tactics. It is this event, plus many more tragedies, both natural and man-made, that Baguio’s ghost stories stem from. Here are some of the more popular ones: Kennon Road. There are two major ways to get to Baguio from Manila; one of them is through Kennon Road. There have been stories of young girls or old women flagging down buses from the side of the road. Sometimes, a bus will stop but the phantoms will disappear. It is said that the spirits appear near the site where a bus fell off a ridge decades ago. The Baguio Cathedral. Many priests and nuns refused to leave Baguio when the city was evacuated during WWII, and many of them were killed in the Baguio Cathedral. Some say that in the wee hours of the morning when everything is quiet, one can sometimes hear the soft moans of the dying. Casa Vallejo. Casa Vallejo is a stylish boutique hotel located at the end of Baguio’s Session Road. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city. It was a German prisoner of war detention center in 1917 and was later used to house key American personages. Hotel guests have reported feeling like they’re being watched, and it is not uncommon for guests to quickly check out at odd hours of the night, refusing to return. That said, the place is still worth a visit because of the businesses it houses: there is Hill Station, one of the best restaurants in Baguio; Mt. Cloud Bookshop, which specializes in Asian-published books (and whose resident spirits like to recommend reading material by dropping books onto unsuspecting browsers); the Baguio Cinematheque, that sometimes shows hard-to-find Filipino films; and the neighboring North Haven Spa, which offers local massage techniques alongside more regular fare.

baguio ghost tour

Laperal White House. The Laperal White House is a beautiful mansion located along one of Baguio’s main roads (Leonard Road, just beside Teacher’s Camp). It’s pretty hard to miss. The American colonial structure was built in 1920 and was home to one of Baguio’s most prominent families. The house became a Japanese garrison during WWII, where it is believed that many people were tortured and killed. People have heard voices arguing in empty rooms, and some visitors have felt an irrational unease when inside. The two most prominent ghosts are a woman who appears at one of the second-floor windows and a little girl who plays by the stairs. Locals believe that the little girl died when she escaped her nanny, ran into the street and got run over. The woman at the window is believed to be a nanny (no one is sure if she’s the girl’s nanny) who was killed in one of the bedrooms. The house was bought by a mall tycoon and is now a museum that focuses on bamboo artwork. Of course, people stop by for a taste of Laperal House’s ghostly history as well. Teacher’s Camp. Teacher’s Camp is one of the most haunted places in an already pretty haunted city. The camp was set up over a hundred years ago to house and train teachers and is now used as a place for retreats and events. There are stories of strange sounds and footsteps along an empty hallway. Popular ghost stories include the image of a crying lady in one of the kitchens and a headless priest roaming the property. There are also stories of guests waking up during the witching hour and coming face to face with a bloodied lady standing beside their bed. Loakan Road. Loakan Road’s reputation as a bewitched area stems from the giant acacia tree that used to stand smack-dab in the middle. All efforts to cut it down have resulted in workers getting sick or into accidents. The tree died of natural causes in 2001, and it was only then that the local government was able to clear it from the road. Hyatt Hotel. The Hyatt Hotel used to be one of the busiest hotels in the area. The structure crumbled during the strong earthquake that hit in 1990, trapping and killing many people. To this day, people have experienced strange apparitions, sounds and scents emanating from the ruins. Some say cries for help can sometimes still be heard. It is still common practice for motorists to honk their horns as they pass the ruins to warn passing spirits so they don’t get run over. The lot remains vacant; it is believed that not all the bodies have been recovered from the ruins, and some remain there to this day. Diplomat Hotel. The honor of the most haunted hotel in Baguio City goes to the Diplomat Hotel. Now in ruins, the Diplomat started out as a Dominican monastery built at the turn of the century. Many of its residents were massacred during WWII – nuns and priests were beheaded; babies were killed. The seminary was converted into a hotel after the war, and even then, guests and employees have claimed to hear wailing at all hours of the day, and to see apparitions, some of them headless and carrying their own heads. The hotel closed in 1987 and lies in ruins today. The area is used for photo and video shoots, and is a regular haunt of paintball enthusiasts. Locals who live near the area say that they can still hear otherworldly sounds to this day. Haunted Baguio Tour. It’s only recently that someone from Baguio has capitalized on the city’s supernatural history. Visitors can now book Haunted Baguio Tours and be treated to the scary side of what could be the most haunted city in the Philippines. Check them out here: https://www.facebook.com/baguiohauntedtour.
