  • It's interesting to see a lake in the middle of grassy area and wooded plains. Though not exactly spectacular, Lake Damum has it's charm. Good area for sunset watching.  more »

  • very beautiful lake. good for picnic. they also have a viewing tower for the sunset lover
  • Nothing much to do here. The photo at the tourist info center was totally different compared to what was really there. Glad we met a couple selling some affordable yogurt. I had three cups of their good and tasty yogurts.
  • It's like a okok place.. You cant swim as the water spells like sewage water. There is no place to sit near too as it's muddy.it's just a side trip when you don't have places to visit at sagada. Honestly nothing there but dirty water.
  • A simple lake with grasses on the side. If it rains, the water turns a bit brown. When we visited the lake, it was raining. We saw 2 rainbows from the area. So beautiful.
  • I've been here twice on foot on different routes. First was via the concrete road from the town. That took about 40 minutes. The second one was a traverse from Mount Ampacao. It took about 4 hours. In both routes I really enjoyed ending the trip in a lush forest with a lake.

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.
