  • Absolute must-have in Sagada. Surefootedness and a normal fitness is required. Evtl.Handschuhe, because of the bat droppings. Best back and forth via foot, then you can see something of the place and more hanging coffins. It is now compulsory for almost all trips to engage a Guido. As a result, many residents secure your living.

  • Interesting place in beautiful scenery. Be prepared to see a bit more than just the coffins. ...
  • Beautiful cave but the guides should be told not to smoke inside the cave.
  • Nice to know that they "hid" a bit of our cultural heritage here. If you're bringing kids I suggest that you'd be careful since some parts of the hike require moderate expertise. The coffins are detailed up close. You'd appreciate the way they preserve the area.
  • I enjoyed walking back up those steps.

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.
