I am reposting this review from my review on Sumaging cave because the two caves are connected. The lumiang cave is very similar to Sumaging, except that it has no bats and less rock formations. This are two main caves in Sagada, Sumaging and Lumiang. Since they are both connected the official tour guides will choose either one to begin... More

We had our cave connection from Lumiang cave to Sumaguing cave. And it took us more than 3 hrs to complete the hike! Thanks to our very accommodating guide who helped us a lot in going up and mostly down those slippery rocks inside the cave. A great view once you're inside. It's dark and you only have a lamp...

We did the end to end Lumiang-Sumaguing hike and what an incredible experience it was! I would recommend going for this option instead of the shorter version (going in the caves through Sumaguing entrance).

Sagada is famous for its hanging coffins but there is also another traditional way of burying the deceased, by stacking the coffins at the opening of the cave. A visit to the Lumiang Cave allows you see this century old tradition. This cave houses at least a hundred of coffins that have been there for about 500 years. Our guide... More

the trek was worth the learning about the culture and ways of the ifugao. according to our guide, records indicate that the coffins here are 100-400 years old. women who died of childbirth or with child were buried on the other side, separately, since they believed they were cursed, and couldn't be buried with the others :(

Lumiang cave is part of the ‚ cave connections’ underground hike route you can follow. Mostly, you enter the caves through Lumiang cave. But it’s also possible to only hike the Lumiang track, although it is suggested to do both hikes and exit through Sumaging cave. The entrance is remarkable because of the piled coffins against the rock walls.There’s a... More

Well everything in Sagada is just a walk away. They buried the dead inside and with so much stories of about how they did it. I cant forget the story about the women, get a good guide to expalin it to you.
