My hubby and I had the "connecting caves" package, which means starting or entering at one cave (Sumaguing) and ending or exiting at Lumiang cave. I got some bruises due to slipping, and was extremely tired, but it was definitely a fulfilling experience. Did not imagine myself finishing the challenge.

If you're fit enough you can go through to the big cave from here. When we checked in at the tourist centre the guide looked at us and said that style of trip - not for seniors (us at 60-65 and fit ) so we did the pair of caves instead

It is a steep and treacherous climb down to the burial cave and the handrails run out before the end so be careful and make sure you have good grip footwear. This is a quirky and unusual place with wooden coffins stacked against the wall almost as if ghey are waiting for someone to come along and move them or... More

You will be welcomed with the coffins. The tour begins from here. Rituals be done by the guide. Please respect and do your share! There is no beauty inside when you expect of stalactites or stalagmites. Its beauty lies on the obstacles that you have to surpass in order to get to Sumaguing Cave. And this is where you can...

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
