  • 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.
