The magical and hypnotic town of Sagada sits stoically up in the mountains of the Philippine Cordillera in Northern Luzon.  This quaint and quiet town of Mountain Province is home to serene mountains, graceful rice terraces, magnificent caves, beautiful waterfalls, sparkling streams and extremely rich Igorot culture and people.  The town is located 275 kilometer or 12 hours drive north of Manila, 140 kilometer or 5-6 hours drive north of Baguio.

Sagada is famous for its “hanging coffins“. This is a traditional way of burying people that is still utilized. Not everyone qualified to be buried this way; one had to, among other things, be married and have grandchildren.

Popular activities in Sagada include trekking, exploring both caves and waterfalls, spelunking, bonfires, picnics, rappelling, visiting historical sites, nature hikes, and participating in tribal celebrations. Guides can be found upon registration at the tourist-office in Sagada Proper (the main town) for a small fee.
