Sagada Saga – Walking Tour

I woke up to with aching legs. I had a snoozefest with my alarm. It was a freezing morning in Sagada. Can’t blame me for wanting to snuggle under the covers.

We paid Php 250 to use the van since we didn’t want to walk. :P We dropped by Lake Danum since we skipped this in Day 1. I was in the Low Bat mood – didn’t feel like getting down and taking pics.






















St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. For some reason, the place gave us energy for a jumpshot.




















The Cemetery. No creepy images I hope.




















A short trek after the cemetery will lead you to Echo Valley. I felt a bit...disrespectful shouting out after passing by their cemetery.





















Trekking down to view the hanging coffins is another tour that requires legwork. We didn’t trek down anymore. We did see two foreigners trekking back up from the hanging coffins with no guide. Good thing nothing happened to them. It won’t hurt to get a guide in Sagada to tour you around. After all, their rates are pretty reasonable.

Next stop was the Sagada Weaving. This shop/facility makes quality weaved bags, pouches and what-nots. Their products are still made by manual weaving.


























No taking of pictures...


















Without proper permission. Really. Ask permission before taking pics inside the premises.

Lunch at Mastferre. Be warned that your order may not be available.




















Sagada restaurants do not scrimp on veggies.




















The view. There is a satellite dish amidst the sea of laundry. Interesting.




















There are a lot of pasalubong shops along the way so you can shop your hearts out. Lots of good shirts and food finds too.

After lunch, ‘twas time to part ways and head back to reality.
