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

Great caving and historyexperience. I am talking bout the cave connection to sumaguing cave. They had warning signs about needing to be physically fit - that is true. Do not attempt if you have sizable belly since you wont fit in some of the holes you need to squeeze into. bring your own headlamp.

It took 3 1/2 hours to trek lumiang cave going out to sumaging cave. Why extreme? One must be physicallly fit to face the challenges like rappeling, rock climbing, waist deep water, slippery rocks, tiny holes... Guides would suggest wearing slippers but i wore my rubber shoes, don"t mind if it gets wet but it protected my foot. Wear long... More

We were welcomed with hanging coffins on the entrance of the cave, We really appreciate the traditions of the native Igorots, some coffins are hanged on a high edge that we can't figured out how they put the coffins there.. If you really want extreme and spend long hours underground, this cave is for you!! This is a cave connection... More

If you don't feel like doing the whole tour through the caves, this is the very easy way: From the tourist office in Sagada, go down the main road. After 10 minutes, on your left, you will see the valley and the hanging coffins (we didn't noticed the coffins at first as they are all at the same spot. Take... More

When you are going to Sagada, you must go to this cave too! And you have to conquer the Cave connection activity. Definitely, you would say that it's worth it!!! 4- 5 hours inside the caves to see wonderful rock formations and experience a once in a lifetime adventure :D
