Sagada Saga - Costing

Sagada was in my “Must See Places in 2010”. I just had to do it. There's plenty of information available for a DIY Sagada trip. But I don’t have the guts to go solo and I wasn’t feeling so optimistic that I could drag someone to join me in Sagada. So I opted to join the TF trip as a solo participant.

The Budget:

Approximate Cost (in Php)

TravelFactor package


Breakfast at Hidden Valley


Dinner at Yogurt House


Lemon Pie House


Dinner at Salt and Pepper


Van share (Php 250/8)


Lunch at Masferre




Cab on the way home




Some reminders:
  • There is signal for Globe. However, you cannot do mobile browsing.
  • Load up your mp3 player with cool tunes. It is a bumpy ride from Banaue to Sagada. Good luck if you plan to get any sleep.
  • Prepare yourself to get wet from occasional rainshowers. (I went there during July)
  • For the Trek to Bomod-ok, prepare to get burned/ wet. You will get burned by the sun so it would be good to but on a sunblock.
  • There are no changing rooms in Bomod-ok. You will swim and head back in your trekking attire.
  • Read this post for some tips for the Cave Connection

Things to bring

  • Jacket/Sweater
  • Comfy footwear for long walks
  • Swimwear
  • Raincoat/poncho
  • Towel
  • Toiletries (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.)
