If you want a great caving adventure, you have to try Lumiang cavinqh connecting Sumaging cave. It's a 350ft underground cave and it will took you two hours going inside. Please wear your non skid water shoes better aqua shoes because most of the rocks are slippery and dangerous. Wear something comfortable but not shorts because most of the activities... More

It is a slippery walk down to the caves and very popular with Filippino weekenders.When we reached the bottom we were a little underwhemed.

For someone not athletic, being able to finish Lumiang to Sumaguing Cave (called Cave Connection) really gave us a feeling of fulfillment. Having 3 guides for our group of four ladies really was a big help to us. We finished the cave con in 3 hours. It is very important to follow the guides instructions and be extra careful. Otherwise,... More

After Sumaguing Cave, we drove to this cave where we had to show our ticket. There is not a lot to see apart from this is where the cave tour from the other cave exit. I only went down half way and stopped. Gavin went to the bottom and said there was nothing to see.

First day in Sagada we made 'echo Valley Trip' and during hiking we asked our guide about other good attractions for next day he said 'cave connection' and then 'get flipflops cause it's gonna be wet there' fortunately we didn't follow his advise and we took rubber shoes...I cannot imagine how we could make cave connection without rubber shoes....we didn't...

Take a guide to explain the significance of the caves and who is buried where/ why. It's interesting to see how the coffins are places and how recent earthquakes have affected the caves. Not a hard walk to get there- just a little slippery if there's been rain. You can go further into the caves but the entrance gives enough... More

If you want challenge, try the cave connection where you enter Lumiang Burial Cave and exit through Sumaging Cave. You have to pay the guide P400 (per head). Smaller group per guide is better. Anyway, you have to pay per head, not per group. Follow what your guide tells you to do or you'll risk your life. I'm not joking... More

Tip - When going to sagada, read what you should wear and what to expect that way you would know. One more tip - leave your make up kit, it doesnt have a place in sagada, better bring a book or your best Playlist and your headset, the place is just amazing you will appreciate how quiet it can get....

Visited this site last November 2014 with friends. A glimpse of Sagada's burial culture. Wear comfortable clothes and sturdy slippers, the narrow path to Lumiang Cave is slippery. A local tour guide is a must.

We did the lumiang cave and the sumaguing cave during the same day. If I remember correctly you begin with the lumiang cave and you finish with the sumaguing cave (without having to go out in between ). We just had an AMAZING adventure ! It was rather physical ! We asked for that to our guide so he made... More
