The Hanging Coffins Of Sagada, Sagada
(3.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Sagada attractions like The Hanging Coffins Of Sagada can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • These suspended caskets (they can be found Around Sagady more, but these are probably the most famous and goes to get reasonably) that are found in Sagadou, if you walk around the Church across the graveyard down the Valley along the path is schůdkami. You can also go on a Valley around the cave, into which flows the river and come out at the beginning of Sagady and make this a short circuit around Sagady. I recommend! Watch the pictures here are, as pictures of the hanging coffins, as well as from the Sumaging Cave!
