श्रगद फिलीपींस

SAGADA is a 5th class municipality in the province of Mountain Province, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 10,575 people in 2,158 households.

Sagada is famous for its "hanging coffins". This is a traditional way of burying people that is not in use anymore. Not anyone was qualified to be buried this way; you had to, among other things, be married and have grandchildren.
In Sagada you can do trekking, explore both caves and waterfalls, spelunking, bonfires, picnics, rappelling, visit historical sites, nature hikes, see wild horses, and participate in tribal celebrations. To find a guide you register at the tourist-office in Sagada Proper (the main town) for a small fee. Tourists must register on their first day at the tourist-office. Down the road from the tourist-office is the Yoghurt House. While in the upper street you can see Log Cabin a restaurant which the French chef usually cook during Saturdays.

Welcome to Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines!
My favorite place for vacation. Love the weather, fresh air, trees, people, rice terraces, water, scinery, the best for hiking, rappelling, mountain climbing, great restuarants, and more.

Water Falls

Among the many Sagada sites popular to visitors, the trek to Bomod-ok Falls, otherwise known as the “Big Falls” is something no one can afford to miss.

While the actual falls is really beautiful and breathtaking, the trek to it is equally amazing. The trek starts near the basketball court of a town called Bangaan. It is mostly a downhill trek along surprisingly cemented pathways, slithering through rice terraces and a quaint little bunch of houses. Its very tiring to way back.. my knees is sore but its great exercise! :-) i`ve been here for 3 times.

Sumaging Cave

Sumaging Cave is probably one of the most popular caves in Sagada. Aptly nicknamed as the Big Cave, was created by water erosion. Almost every year, thousands of visitors would trail down to see the magnificent and unorthodox display of stalactites and stalagmites. Historically, the cave also served as hiding place of Filipino soldiers and Guerillas during World War II. Prior to the War, this was also a habitat and eventually also became burial grounds for the Indigenous People of the Cordillera. However, due to looting grave robbers, we do not see any burial graves. During your visit, expect to have a guide. They will show you the different forms of the cave rocks where they give names such as "pig pens", "pregnant woman", "frog pool", "elephant formation", etc. Moving farther, you can go down the steep rocks barefoot because the rocks are flat and rough enough. Upon arriving there, you'll be surprised because there is a waterfall and below it is a deep pool, and you can swim there.


The People of Sagada have a unique way of putting their dead to rest- coffins are carved out of a single log, then the body is pushed into the coffin and hung high on the limestone cliffs.
Who carves it? Why, The person to buried in it, of course. He will carve the Coffin out himself before he goes, or if he`s too weak to do it himself, assigns one of his closest relatives to do it for him
