My Gf and I visited Sagada many times and sometimes, our family as well. We never get weary of coming back all over again. Having a house in baguio is a plus, but everytime we visit, we never fail to go to sagada. Sumaguing Cave is one part of the Cave connection in Sagada. If you're going for a cave... More

It was eerily beautiful, hauntingly fascinating and so much fun...if you are young, fit and fearless. For much older individuals like us (we are in our 40's and not very fit) precautions must be taken and taken seriously. There are guides but no visible first aid/medical station in case of emergencies. Everything was raw and uncared for.

It's one of the things I did that I feel proud of. The constant fear that you'll slip anytime and the sweat of the long journey down were all worth it once you started seeing the formations of stalagmites and the instant tubs which have the ice-cold water. If this is the first activity you'll do in Sagada and you're... More

Had an exhilirating cave connection ( lumiang-sumaguing) adventure. This activity is really not for the faint-hearted. You will be pushed to your limits. Prepare your gears (proper attire, water and camera) and prepare yourself (reading blogs help) beforehand. Some tasks may be daunting but don't let your fear overwhelm you. Trust yourself, listen to your guide (believe me they know... More

to be the no. 1 spot in sagada, this is not well maintained. There are no first aid kit available, nor rangers. They lack guides and lamp posts inside the cave. The cave is so slippery, there is a part where you need to take off you shoes and walk bare footed in the cave. it requires extreme caution but... More

Climbing up and down the slippery limestone rocks didn't prove to be easy specially with a hundred other people right at your back waiting to take the same path. But the guides were really good they made sure you're safe specially in those tricky areas where you can barely reach the base of the rocks with your feet. They'll hold... More

If your not a spelunker, this will be totally a totally memorable adventure. The 1 1/4 mile undergoing walk from the Lumiang Burial Cave, with its caskets, to the to Sumaguing Cave is tough, at places very tough. You start out dropping though a manhole size opening in the cave floor next to the caskets, your guide holding a Coleman... More

All starts off relatively easy with some steps and a little bit of scrambling. Then it gets more uneven and rocky, slippery and dirty so not for everyone. Thereafter it gets more difficult, more slippy and very wet. Best grip is without shoes and you need to be strong enough to pull yourself up and down some awkward spots. The... More

This is a must visit place when you go to Sagada. A 300 ft below the ground according to our guide and you can see great rock formations, the cave has its 3 phase, Phase 1 was a tricky one, you have to gets passed the huge stones with the bat poops and pees (which was okay with me) Just... More

It was quite challenging knowing that there are parts that are slippery and are very technical. The first few minutes were passing through holes, bending and using of your body strength both upper and lower. A stretching is needed and if you are claustrophobic or if you're afraid of the dark, this activity is not suitable for you. We did... More
