) "where are the natives?"

"ahem" your talking to one of them.. people in their traditional attire you mean.. 'exactly'.. only during special occations when you see an i-sagada wearing a g-string(mens attire0 or a gateng(womens).

---> so when is that "special occation?"

well, begnas is the likely the most popular, there is no exact date when an occasion is done.. normally it happens somewhere around march, june and december..

another is the town fiesta febuary one or two or earlier...

ill try to create a new post providing readers advance dates on events and happening here in sagada...

yun po bang mga natives on traditonal clothes eh pwede po bang kunan ng photos? may bayad ba or free?

nung sa Baguio kasi, hindi ako aware na may bayad tinabihan ko tas nagpa kuha akong pictures hehehe katakot-takot na mura inabot ko :P

hey there anonymous.. its free, because it is a real traditional festival that is done 3 times a year.

no definite date though..

anyway, you could take photos only if you would ask permission..

Hi Gareth! I would just like to clarify if the rates here are on a "per group" or a "per head" basis?

rates are per group... the only rate that per head is applied is the CAVE CONNECTION which is 400 per head..

and also in Caving or Spelunking, when the group exceeds 15 pax.

Ang ganda ng Sagada, pero nakakasira nga yung yero. Maganda sana kung pinturahan.
