sagada echo valley and hanging coffins

hanging coffins

On our last day we planned to go to the Echo Valley and to check out the Hanging Coffins, we woke up early and walked our way near the basketball court. The day before, I’ve met Dan, he was one of the kids who offer guided tour going to echo valley and the hanging coffins. He charged P100 per pax. He was a little shy and I started making conversation with him and asked if he’s still going to school, he said yes and that he and his friends we’re doing this only during weekends, summer and whenever they don’t have classes, he said that he save some of the money and give the rest to his mother, good boy!

sagada food trip

On our first day we had our lunch at Yogurt House, it was already past 1:00PM but there were still a lot of people. There were a lot of dishes to choose from and we settled for their java chicken and beef curry and of course I tried their famous yoghurt and ordered 1 serving as Jayjay’s not that much of a yoghurt fan. They have a big serving and if you’re not that much of an eater 1 serving will already be good for 2. It was not that marvelous but it was good and very tasty, we paid P385 for our lunch and make sure not to come here if you're too hungry as it takes some time to serve your food.

sumaguing cave adventure

sumaguing cave

There are several organizations offering guided spelunking in Sagada and we decided to go with SAGGAS, we were hoping that we’ll met a person or two whom we can share the guide fee but good thing we did not met anyone as it will be more fun and you’ll learn a lot if the two of you has 1 guide. Gareth  was our guide from SAGGAS and it cost P500 for minimum of 4 persons.

trek to bomod-ok falls

Bomod-Ok Falls
After having our breakfast on our second day, we rode a jeepney going to Bangaan in front of Eduardos Building which cost us P20 each and after 15 minutes we were already at the information center of the Bomod-ok Falls. We met Princess with her mother on the jeepney and they asked us if we’re going to the falls and asked us if we want to divide the P500 guide fee, but of course! We registered our names and off we trek! The first section of the trek was downhill and there was a part where you can see the top of the falls but it was still far from where we are. After 30 minutes we arrived at Fedelisan village where we were given a new guide Ate Martha and this is where you pay the guide fee of P500 plus P10 per head for the environmental fee, that was P135 each for the four of us. There’s also a comfort room where you can freshen up and they let you borrow their bamboo sticks that you can use as a trekking pole.
