Lakbay sa Sagada

Santiago, Baguio

When I arrived in Sagada, Benguet, I kept on seeing souvenirs that says, “I survived Sagada”. Thanks to my tour guide from Zetodeals, I literally survived and experienced a whole lot of fun and thrilling activities. Here’s why successful finishers of Sagada Tour say that phrase very often after each activity. Here’s a list of where to stay and where to go in Sagada, Benguet.

7th Heaven's Cafe

Santiago, Philippines • Recommendation • 

No thrill here, just good food and a great view. If you want to have your morning breakfast with the view of the Eighth Wonder of the World, The Banaue Rice Terraces, this is the place to be.

Aguian View Deck

1 save

Santiago, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Get a majestic view of the Banaue Rice Terraces. The Banaue Rice Terraces are terraces that were carved into the mountains of Ifugao by the ancestors of the indigenous people. The centuries-old terraces are occasionally called the "Eighth Wonder of the World". It is said that if the steps were put end to end, it could encircle half of the globe. This view deck gives you a great view of this famous gem. The challenge with this view point is you need to walk through a thin muddy trail at the edge of a cliff.

Casa Robina

Santiago, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Our sanctuary - a simple but very cozy transient house. The best spot in the house is the fireplace and the common area on the ground floor.

Bomod-ok Falls

1 save

Santiago, Philippines • Recommendation • 

The most visited falls in Sagada. The word Bomod-ok simply means "Big" thus the name came from “The Big Falls”! The thought of “This must be worth it.” is instilled in my mind, gasping for air, while going through a two-hour trek (and that is only one-way). The route is not for the weak - walking on thin muddy trails and going up and down some rock formations, not to mention the another two-hour trip to return to your starting point. After all of the constant self motivation “You can do it! Just a bit more.” 😅, the gasping of air and my jello legs, it’s all worth it.

Kiltepan View

2 saves

Santiago, Philippines • Recommendation • 

“Where do broken hearts go?” No other than in Kiltepan Peak. This tourist spot is made famous by the movie “That Thing Called Tadhana”. It provides the best vantage point to experience the breathtaking sunrise surrounded by the infamous “sea of clouds”. 😉 I accepted the challenge of the landscape and took a life-threatening shot by standing on a piece of a fist-size rock at the edge of a cliff. 😅

Sumaguing Cave

1 save

Baguio, Philippines • Recommendation • 

This activity is not for the faint of heart. The goal of the spelunking experience is to see magnificent limestone formations which can only be attained by taking the adventurous trek down the deep, dark, and cold cave. The cave is literally dark. The only source of light that will guide your steps is a lamp that the tour guide is holding while on route. The route is no joke. It’s not a place for the whiny - you’re either clinging unto wet muddy rocks with bat pee and bat poo or you’re rappelling beside cave walls just so you wont fall off the cliff. It is seriously dangerous but the sense of accomplishment that is felt after finishing this activity is unexplainable. You will really feel as if “You Literally Survived Sagada”.

Hanging Coffins of Sagada

6 saves

Baguio, Philippines • Recommendation • 

After an exhausting trek, finally we reached Sagada’s Infamous Cemetery. The Hanging Coffins. For thousands of years, people in Cordillera have practiced the tradition of burying their dead this way. They believed that putting their dead in steep walls made their loved ones nearer to the gods. The dead begin their journey into the afterlife strapped to a wooden chair (Same as the one in the photo). It’s one of the many rituals that’s still being practiced in Sagada to this day. It is also part of their tradition that those who died of illness cannot be placed inside the coffins in fear of bad luck. On the other hand, getting a drop of blood coming from the wrapped corpse is considered good luck.
