#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.
