But cool! As a fan of cultural and unusual places, I really like it. The cave itself is scary and beautiful at the same time. It's so close to the center of the city that it's worth a visit anyway once you are in Sagada.

This is a great starting point for the cave connection experience. The outside of the cave is just 1/10th of what you are supposed to experience if you get inside. Hire a local tour guide. It is a must since the descents and ascents can tend to be quite technical inside. A few adventures would be going in tight crevices,... More

As the title says, this is one of the top things to see in SAGADA. About 100 coffins are still there. Walking down there is easy, but getting back up is more difficult!

It was nice to see the coffins and skulls inside the cave. You will be educated with regards the tradition of the Saggas before. I not even afraid being inside a burial cave. We did the Lumiang-Sumaguing Cave Connections and our first trail is inside the Lumiang Cave. It was really a great extreme adventure! Unending trekking, rapelling, rock climbing,... More

This is a very interesting place to visit. You can use this as your starting point for a long cave tour or just visit to see the ancient wooden coffins stacked into the caves. The coffins hold the remains of locals. The coffins are small, as the deceased is tightly bound into a fetal position before they are placed in... More

Solemn, quiet, and light. Those are the feelings it brought me when I went to Lumiang Cave. Here, where the remains of our ancestros were buried you will feel and appreciate the life of the Igorot people in the early days. That their love and respect to environment and to life in general is very evident and should be fortold.

This is the fourth time that I went inside this cave. Maybe because I'm with different group whenever I go inside that's why every visit is a different experience. This time I felt like I was the tour guide hahahaa.

I enjoyed Lumiang cave just as much as the other cave. The cave connection is a must try and be prepared to get wet!
