I would definitely rec. This cave connection for those who have adventurous and wild spirit! It's a must do activity in Sagada. Our Day 1 Activity.
PS: Respect it cuz this is a sacred place for the locals. Aside from being a burial place, Respect...More
There is nothing more amazing than see things personally. Lumiang Cave is one example of an attraction that shoulde be explored while you can. The bus trip to Sagada may be the ultimate challenge but it is all worth the long travel.
Our tour guide was accommodating. It was dangerous, but I was pushed to my limit. I thought I couldn't make it, but no one will be left behind, all must finish the trek. 3 to 4 hours of spelunking, mostly crawling was tiring. But after...More
Due to miscommunication with our guide we ended up taking the lumiang sumaguing cave connection but no regrets it's all worth it. The whole adventure would take 4 to 5 hours. We are 8 so we had 2 guides (kuya edong and kuya denver) we...More
People will hesitate to do cave connection specially if you are a big boy/girl. I myself hesitated in doing it I am 84kg and you would think it was impossible for me to finish an estimated of 3-4 hours or more (depending of how many...More
It was the first time me and my friend went into caves and were not well prepared. Make sure to have enough water and a headlamp. Although the guide was very nice and always helped us climbing up and down the rocks, the extra light...More
You can do the view part only. I recommend those who have weak hearts, clausterphobia or afraid of heights to NOT do the cave connection. It’s very demanding and dangerous. (We were not properly briefed before we went). There are sheer drops And you physically...More
Really interesting story behind this tradition. Minimal trek to the cave and the coffins are just at the entrance. We weren’t able to book a guide at the tourist center but we got one on the spot (a guide was required for 200 pesos). Would’ve...More

Hi. HNY! What we did was book overnight bus from Manila to Banaue which took around 11 hours. This was more convenient for all of us since the bus was of recliner type so we were able to sleep throughout the trip. It was better than hire a driver from Manila, and definitely less costly. From the bus terminal in Banaue, the driver whom I got details of online picked us up and brought us to a viewpoint for breakfast. We then arranged tour with them to bring us to all tourist destinations in Banaue, Batad, and Sagada. There were five of us (2 senior citizens) and I think we were charged around 12,000 for all the tours (including drive from Banaue to Sagada which is 3 hours long, drive around Sagada the next day to check the sites, and entrance fees).
Regarding the hike in Batad Rice Terraces, it would be 30-45 minutes per way just going to the view point. If you want to really hike through the terraces, it will be another 5 or so hours. Batad is farther to the east but it has better rice terraces than in Banaue, around 45 minutes travel in between. As we had senior citizens in my group who were able to hike through Batad, I think your kids would be able to do it.
Check AirBnB for accommodations. Three days would be full but fine.

For your own safely dont enter that cave .. there are other caves on the planet where better rock formations can be seen . This is nothing to do with fitness, its a death trap and should be advertised as such. There is a lack of ropes, no guard rails , no lighting and one foot slip might end in your death. Local governments of other countries would never allow their citizens to enter such a death trap. Guides have slipped and fallen to their deaths, tourists have slipped and drowned (bodies never recovered.) and tourists have been trapped inside for hours during flooding. For your own safety best avoided ..
