SAGADA ITINERARY



Sunrise at Mt. Kiltepan

Going to Sagada is already an adventure and will be best describe as NO PAIN NO GAIN... Literally. But it's all worth it!!!

WHAT TO SEE

If you want to maximize your stay -- Read READ READ. It took me more than a month to finalize our itinerary and that includes a lot of research. Yes I want to see the best view but I also want to get the BEST DEAL..



Kapay-aw Rice Terraces


Sumaguing Cave


St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church


Echo Valley


Sagada Weaving


Hanging Coffins


Sagada Christian Cemetery

Bomod - ok Falls


Mt. Kiltepan

WHERE TO STAY

There are so many places to stay when your in Sagada but for this trip I choose George Guest House Main Building due to its accessibility, affordability and good reviews.  250php per person per night. Here's there contact information:

Website:  http://georgesagada.blogspot.com/

Contact numbers: (63) 918-548-0406 and(63) 920-948-3133 (Look for Ate Dora)

WHERE TO EAT 

So many restaurants to choose from but i love the Lemon tea of Sagada Lemon Pie House and the Yogurt of Yogurt House -- Indeed one of the Best! 










HOW TO GO

I tried to check if there's a direct bus ride from Manila to Sagada but I can't seem to find anything on the web. You need to take Manila to Baguio then to Sagada.  Manila to Baguio travel time will be around six hours and fare was about 450php.Best time to leave is in the evening if your from Manila. There are so many buses that take this route but we choose Victory Liner in Cubao Terminal. 

From Victory Terminal in Baguio City take a cab going to GL Liner in Baguio Dangwa first trip is at 6am until 1pm travel time will be another 6 hours on a non air conditioned bus but don't you worry most of the roads are smooth. Fare was about 250php. Be there early so you can choose a better seat. Get a window seat to enjoy the view of the Halsema Highway.

Victory Liner contact number: (063) 410 8986  



WHEN TO GO

Best time to go is during dry months December to May. Since it will be very difficult and risky if its raining. 

Special thanks to Mara and Beverly my travel buddies for this trip. Thanks girls for some of the pictures I've used on this post. 


HAPPY TRAVEL!!!
