Sagada is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Mountain Province. Some may call it the perfect escape from the city. The view of mountains that sprawl the horizon has a very therapeutic effect on anyone that sees it. So take time to treat both of your hearts to this breath taking sight.
The first day of the tour starts with a tour around Banaue and Sagada. This includes the Echo Valley, Hanging Coffins, Sagada Underground River, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Bokong Natural Swimming Pool, Sagada Weaving and souvenir shopping.
The second day of the tour will take you to the southern reaches of Sagada. This portion of the tour will be one of the more physically engaging one. The tour will take you through the Cave Connection which is a 4 hour Cave spelunking from Lumiang/ Burial Cave to Sumaging/Big Cave. The Cave Spelunking is probably one of the most interesting spelunking adventures a person can take. You get to climb down a cave and slide down a natural rock slide to get to the underground river. This experience will be exciting for any adrenaline junkie. You will also get to go to Bomod-ok Falls for a fun day of Trekking and Sightseeing.
