Lumiang burial cave
Dec 2019 • Friends
Amazed by how they buried the dead way back with no lights, no safety gears and slippery stones just to place the coffins on the top of the caves. We didnt get to see the hanging coffins up close since it is closed due to burial. Unlucky too that it is raining and power is interrupted when we went here.

amazing spelunking experience
Oct 2018
it's not everyday one can experience the majesty of the subterranean landscape. the 4 hour underground cave traverse is unforgettable for the tight spaces and the beautiful
rock forms in the cave. definitely a must do when in sagada.

Poor value and the guide is totally unnecessary
Apr 2019 • Friends
The Lumiang cave is a located about 1.9km from central sagada. We visited it as a part of a semi-self guided tour where we walked from sagada > Echo valley > Lumiang cave > sumaging cave.

First I'll start by stating that a lot of the below listed reviews are actually reviewing 'the cave connection' which is a tour that connects the luminag burial cave to the sumaging cave. This is a totally different attraction to what I am reviewing, which is the cave attraction itself. The entrance to the cave is a subtle sign off the main road. From here you take a 10 minute walk down a path to the opening of the cave, which contains about 100 coffins, stacked one on top of the other. This is a contrast to the hanging coffins of echo valley.

Although this is something worth seeing, the cost of 10PP per person plus a compulsory guide fee of 300PP is a bit steep. I found that the guide added nothing to the journey and just accompanied us down a well established path. At the end of the path was a viewpoint to the entrance of the cave, with the coffins being a distance away. We were in and out in about 20 minutes.

Cave Connection: Not for the everyone
Apr 2019 • Family
Amazing spelunking experience of around 2-3 hours.

NOTE: Be prepared to go through tight spots and bring at least a phone in case their kerosene light give up - as it did happened to us. If you are suffering from vertigo or claustrophobia, I wouldn't not recommend it.

Easy walk to see something different

TBH - if you are in Sagada, you are there to see the hanging coffins - very popular. The Lumiang cave has coffins too, but they were stacked in the cave. The coffins are old and most are made of a single log. There are other caves with coffins as well - some for different types of deaths. This one is easy to get to.

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.

For thrill/adventure seekers
Dec 2017 • Friends
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 you have made it to the end, then your satisfaction is overwhelming.

I won't do it again though, haha. I would rather do the Sumaguing Cave over and over again :)

Must Try! It's all worth it.
Apr 2018 • Friends
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 started 9am and finish it around 1:30 pm. Just be prepared when doing it, you need to bring some water, crackers, chocolate (for more energy) and flashlight. Wear leggings and shirt (preferably dri fit) and slippers not rubber shoes. Just always remember to follow and listen to your guide. The whole course is NOT easy but it's all worth it. We survived!! Enjoy!
