#Cemetery, #Cave, #Must See
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.

  • At the entrance of the cemetery, it is required to hire a local guide, and pay for it, of course, otherwise you can not enter. The cemetery, which has nothing in particular, going and start a fall down stairs by the echo valley. You get a group of hanging coffins, which are the only ones that are, the last "funeral" of this kind was in 2010, is disused. The road is all in cement, except the final, must download and upload, but is easy. Of coffins seems quaint, but the visit has no interest.

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.
