Echo Valley, Sagada

4.0
#2 of 14 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.

  • But you get there extremely difficult paths over a serious disappointment. Indonesia, on the island of Sulawesi Toraja people, especially of the places you saw this is completely redundant

  • Nice quick hike but kinda overrun and overrated. Don't expect to see hundreds of century-old coffins. You are required to rent a guide for P 200. Do you need one? Well, it's a 1/4 mile hike and you just follow other tourists. So go figure. Overall a slightly disrespectful tourist attraction.
  • Echo Valley's entry is just about 5 to 10 minutes walk from town center where the tourism office is located. In the entry there's a tourism booth that will check your environmental fee receipt and you have to register at their booth. After registration you will climb a high stairs going to the Echo Valley Booth that collects entrance fee which is 10 pesos per person. Then you will continue to trek to the town's public cemetery before you proceed in trekking to the cliffs of Echo Valley. Don't worry because there's cement steps with metal railings so it's not that hard. But it is very tiring. You will reach Echo Valley first before you continue to trek again going further down to the most famous (I suppose) hanging coffins of Sagada. The air just smells so nice because of the pine trees. Other activities aside from trekking are site seeing from Echo Valley, rock climbing and church visit since it's very close to the local parish.
  • Nice place to visit in Sagada. ❤ Around 5 minutes walk away from town proper. :)
  • Good place ..Have to climb like a million steps..It's a 2 minute walk from town....
  • Great adventure yet very exhausting. When you go through the trail, especially on rainy or cold months (December to February) wear short pants as the trail is muddy.
