Probably the only reason to visit Sagada is to see the hanging coffins. You walk thru the cemetery, then down a hill to view them. I found the second half of the walk difficult.

A visit to hanging coffins is a must. It is one of the tourist spots in sagada. You can learn a lot from the tourguide. Expect a lot of walking, so please wear comfy shoes, or trekking sandals.

That called thing Tadhana is real.😀When I say “adventure” I don’t focus purely on the adrenaline highs of extraordinary physical activities or wanderings into the unknown (though I may mean exactly that).

I took pot luck in hiring a guide from the tourist centre. His name was James; at 19 years old, he lacked the initiative to ensure older folks felt safe descending or ascending the steps or rocky areas. Including about 10 minutes at the site,...More

A guide is required (Php200 per group) to enter the Cemetery and Echo Valley. At first we thought it’s a tourist trap. Having been here a couple of years back, i was sure we don’t need a guide it’s simply walking along the pathway. Apparently...More

The people of Sagada practice the ancient funeral custom of hanging coffins on the limestone cliff. It is believed that this practice was meant to place the departed closer to heaven, and usually reserved for the nobles. The higher the coffin, the more valued the...More

I'm sorry sir. But you commented on the wrong review with regards to the fees the guides are charging. In my review, i did not write any negative remarks about the prices charged by the guides. :)
