The Biggest rock filled dam in Asia, Ambuklao Hydroelectric Dam is considered one of the huge projects that happened in the Cordillera Area, one of the first two Dams constructed along Agno River (the other is Binga DAM) during the
early 1950's. Concerning it's hydraulic structure, NPC's Ambuklao Dam, have a height of nearly 100 m in the upstream of the Agno.

How to Get There

From Baguio City, take the jeepney or mini bus at Dangwa Terminal (infront of Baguio City Market at the back of Centermall) or at Slaughter Compound in Magsaysay. Take the Kabayan trip. This will take you to Ambuklao Dam using
the Ambuklao Road in Baguio near Pacdal Circle. This will usually take you 3-4 hours. Another way is to take the short cut way using a private vehicle: From Baguio, take magsaysay road passing by Trinidad. From the Benguet
Capitol Building, take the road going to Halsema Highway. The travel time will be around less than 45-minutes, and there will be a junction point and on the right a rocky road going down. This will take you more than an hour to reach Ambuklao. The Ride will be a bumpy and a "death-defying-cliff edge" experience.
