Good Old Sagada

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.  Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.  ~John Muir

Going to Sagada

In the heart of Mountain Province,  lies one of the best places in the country I think I’ve ever been.  Sagada; 275Km North of Manila and 140 Km from Baguio; the town famous for their tradition of burying people by putting thier coffins on the mointain walls, tagging it as the hanging coffin. 

We have been here two years ago.   Hush, it was really a long trip from Baguio to Sagada.  I bet it took us not more than six hours because it was like going to the mountain top; however, every view of the place is scenic and worth watching.  the cold weather gave additional zest (Better bring your jacket)!  The food is not that expensive either.  We have been to the eco-valley and the cave connection of Sumaguing and Lumian caves, the rice terraces, saw the hangging coffins, look in depth about their culture at Ganduyan Museum.  We have missed some areas due to some time constraints but it’s giving us more reason to go back.

I am looking forward to go back to this place.  Did I mentioned how awesome the food in The Yogurt House?
