Itinerary - Sagada

Sagada is one of the off-the-beaten track areas that has become a mainstream destination in the Philippines. The outstanding views, cool climate, resilient and impressive cultures make up the whole Sagada. But wait, there’s more – you can see hanging coffins and explore one of the best adventure caves in the country. If you’re going to visit Sagada, get ready to sweat it out in this cool destination.


DAY 1

Its best to leave Manila at this hour to maximize your travel time. It also saves you precious money that would otherwise had been spent on accommodation if you went a day earlier to Baguio.

DAY 2
5:00 A.M.
ETA Baguio City
Proceed to a 24-hr Restaurant
456 Restaurant or near the main bus terminal

6:00 A.M. ETD Baguio City

2:00 P.M. ETA Sagada
Check-in (there are quite a number of inns in Sagada. Just walk over to the town center and see if there’s an available room)
Rest

3:00 P.M. Visit the following (by walking)
Church
This is a quaint little church most ideal for souvenir photos.

Cemetery
Who would have thought that cemeteries could be nice tourist attractions? Actually you would have to pass through here to visit the echo valley. There’s just some character in this place that is so different from many “usual” cemeteries. Plus, you could take a look at the tombstones and notice that some residents would have Japanese-sounding names.

Echo Valley
This place really bounces off your shout. Plus, a few more minutes exploring the vicinity would bring you to some limestone tower-like formations. Again, get your cameras ready for some larawanan sessions.

Local Restaurants
A seasoned traveler knows that one of the nicest places to visit in a quaint town are the restaurants. In Sagada, this can be a very good time to taste some interesting meals while resting your toes.

DAY 3
8:00 A.M. Go to the town hall to register, pay for the local fees, and arrange for a guide. Guides are very important in Sagada if you really want to see and experience the best of this place.

8:30 A.M. Start visit to the following:

Hanging Coffins (which can be seen on your way to Sumaging, or Big Cave
The Hanging Coffins introduced Sagada to the outside world, and the tourists. This is an old tradition where the coffins of the dead are put in the precarious crevices of the walls of the limestone mountains. This is still being practiced by some member of the community. The Hanging coffins are quite a unique culture found only in Sagada and another place in China.

1:00 P.M. End of Caving
Packed Lunch or snack (don’t leave your inn without food!)

Detour to Lomiyang Cave on your way back to town proper
This is another very interesting spot in the area where hundreds of pinewood coffins are placed and piled up on the cave’s entrance. The local guide should provide you with some enlightening insights into this part of their culture.
