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.

  • Probably of one of the most unusual funeral ways in this world. In a vertical rock wall the coffins of the deceased are hung, death Chair included, quasi tomb with a view. The "graveyard" is still active, respect is therefore appropriate.

  • It's a trek, so dress appropriately for the weather and wear some comfy shoes. If you are unfamiliar with the place, do bother to hire a tour guide for a fee.
  • Try doing the echo along the way. You can also see some of the hanging coffins. And amazing rock formations.
  • I enjoyed our stroll around echo valley very much. I really loved the view from up there.
  • Good please. Having a guide is a must. Can't travel by our selves
  • 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.
