      How can you say “NO” to this little paradise located in the north of the Philippines. It may be a tiresome, butt-aching long travel from Manila but I can attest to it that it is all worth it.

      Aside from the fact, that the community has maintained their less than 20,000 population for the last 10 years, there are a lot of activities that you can do while you


      are in Sagada.

      There are some sites that you can explore by yourself, however, I would suggest for a first-timer to hire a guide so someone will educate you of its history & made up funny story behind it.

      This magnificent place is definitely a haven of Igorots who are willing to share the natural gift being showered to their community.

      Spelunking is one of the main tourist attractions.

      ...


      • There are several caves & if you are a beginner, you may try to explore Sumaguing cave and if you are up for a more challenging activity, cave connection (Sumaguing & Lumi-ang Cave) is the answer for you.

        Different rock formations can be seen inside the cave and some have names that have a funny story behind it like why it was called “the queen and the king”.

        The

        number of hours that you will spend inside the cave will depend on how intent you listen & follow your guide’s instructions.

        There would be times that you need to plunge in the icy water to cross to the other side, rappel to climb, step on the “human ladder” and sometimes use your butt to crawl.

        After spelunking, you may buy one of the souvenir shirts w/the “I Survived Sagada” logo.
