Echo Valley, Sagada

4.0
#2 of 10 in Trails in Luzon
Visitors are welcome to shout it out at at Echo Valley. Take a walk through nature to the viewpoint, from which you can see the main attraction of the valley--the coffins hanging from a cliff. This type of burial is traditional for the Igorot culture (they perform it because they believe the higher the deceased are, the closer they are to heavens). Most visitors can't resist shouting out so they can hear their own voice come back to them, thus the name.

    Want some quick adventure in sagada? Well, this ones a surviving one as the steep path will surely slow you down. Reminder: take a guide before entering a place, do not listen to SOMEBODY as its a waste of time they say.

    Disappointing. With all respect due to the igorot culture, this is ancestor cult and not a touristic attraction. One gets in, see a couple of coffins 7m high and gets out. Though it means alot to Igorot people, it's nothing great to tour for a foreigner. Luckily the tour guide was very friendly and talkative.

    One can never fully rate culture and how open the people of Sagada are for welcoming people a glimpse of their tradition.

    Wonderful location. Try to go there in the last hour before dusk and access from the northern end. The ambiance is tremendous.

    Don't enter the park without a guide. The locals might tell you it's fine without a hiring a guide - don't believe them or else you'll be wasting your time. Your privileges won't work here. Get a guide like we did.

Where to stay in Sagada

Though remote, Sagada has established itself as a tourist destination, and therefore offers a range of accommodations for its guests. You won't find sparkling new hotels here, but that's the point. Seemingly every house acts a guesthouse across the modest urban area close to the bus stop. You'll find some offering a few more facilities, like onsite restaurants serving local cuisine, hot water, outdoor activity equipment rental, and tour booking. Some have a particularly rustic aspect to them, with their wooden designs fitting in with the landscape that surrounds, while some others remain very basic indeed.
