Discover an ancient Filipino burial tradition at The Hanging Coffins Of Sagada, an example of an ancient custom still practiced in some part of Asia. The coffins were placed on projection beams and hung far up on the mountainside, so as to be out of reach of wild animals and grave robbers. Bring suitable footwear to hike the trail and view the coffins, as the path can be slippery. On a guided tour of the site, you can acquaint yourself with the historic funeral tradition, and enjoy scenic views of the valley below.

  • Recently, there is obligation to take a guide to 200 pesos (1 to 10 people so try to form a group!). A bit expensive. We were explained that some people had degraded the coffins and stolen bones (it would protect them according to some beliefs) so that the guide ensured that the visit was going well. He has also given a lot of interesting explanations and answered our many questions. A little pressing on the end, but friendly. The Ballad is short but interesting. There are also to be registered and have paid tax for tourists (that everyone pays including Filipinos). It's been a lot of stuff to pay to Sagada but I found that money seemed well used to protect the sites and make live on the premises.
