A serene place filled with sacred history with its people as their main asset apart from its historical past.
. Courteous and kind.
This is a great little town for caving and some sightseeing. I wouldn't recommend staying longer than 1-2 nights though.
A diamond in the rough there appears to be a lot of restaurants and shopping in the tone proper which attracts some tourists.
Very hilly area so be prepared to walk over a lot of hills and slopes. Rich history in this area, didn't have time to experiance everything. Would love to return and make Sagada a destination next time rather than just passing through.
Very quiet place. Lack of restaurants, Good place for activities and adventure. If you do not like outdoor activities, just pass this place and stay overnight at Bontoc.
Try the Yoghurt house and Sagada brew. Try the Lumiang-Sumaguing cave connection for 3 hours of adventure.
If you want to go to Vigan after, then go to Bontoc and a catch the van to Cervantes. Then transfer to another van to Tagudin. When you reach the coastal road, it won't be a problem anymore going to Vigan. This will take about your whole day of travelling. You will reach Vigan around 4-5pm just enough to rest and take that sumptuous Vigan dinner.
Sagada is an interesting town with sightseeing attractions nearby. Lots of great places to eat. Wished we could have stayed another day longer to try out more restaurants.
Weather was nice and cool.
Lumiang-Sumaguing cave is a must-try. If you want to try orange picking, best to go on nov-dec. Blueberry season is on March.
Try the lemon pie at lemon pie house and the yoghurt at yoghurt house. Don't eat at sagada brew if you're starving,the service is so slow.
Sagada is a very nice place to explore. There are a lot of things to be done. Given another opportunity, I will surely return to Sagada and do the cave connection.
The reason to go to Sagada is to see the hanging coffins but there is a also a great cave tour. The cave tour takes between 1 and 3.
5 hours depending on how adventurous you are. There are a couple tight places but overall the caves are at great change of pace. A guide is required for the long trek in the caves and costs 800 pesos- well worth it. Rafting is also an option in the area but we did not partake.
Great history of a very strong and independent indigenous people. They have self sufficiency in the bag tourism is just an after thought.
