What to bring!!

Written By (sagada genuine guides association inc). on Monday, July 9, 2007 | 8:10 PM

These are collections of "What to Bring" suggested by tourists and the Guides of SAGADA.

For Sight Seeing / Trekking
@ Mount Ampacao
  • SUNBLOCK - always bring and apply your sunblock whenever you go out for a hike or a tour around SAGADA.
  • Hiking Shoes or Sandals - in SAGADA, it's all about hiking. terrain is not made for your pleasure so you have to prepare for it.
  • FOOD and WATER - have something to refuel your body and have it placed on a back pack.
  • WALKING STICK - it would be very nice, comfortable and very helpful if you secure yourself a third foot.
  • HAT - even if its cold in SAGADA, the sun still stings you with its rays, so have something to protect your head and skin.
  • JOGGING PANTS / LONG PANTS - short pants are for caving, but for hiking, its a different story. you need to protect your lower body from getting scratched and sliced by grass and ferns.

long pants, shoes, walking stick, hat, light colored clothes back pack.

  • SHORT PANTS/ Tights - this is to reduce the additional weight carried when soaked with water inside the cave and for easier movement.
  • RUBBER SLIPPERS - actually, any type of foot wear you would use will be useless against the slippery terrain of the cave. Hiking shoes or Sandals as many people think is the best gear for spelunking but it is not. Slippers still are so far the best. "trust me on this"
  • GLOVES - If you don't want to touch those Guano (Bat shit), bring a water proof glove to protect your hands from those slimy, sticky, and cool coffee like odor. :)
  • CAMERA - The Greatest Souvenir you could get in SAGADA are photos proving that you made it to the place. Should come along with a water proof container ex. cellophane, plastic bag, etc..

Just In case

  • pain reliever tablet - to help sooth your body from aches and all after all those strenuous activities
    neozep tablet - sagada has a low temperature, it is likely that a person from the low lands would catch colds.
Things you shouldn't bring when inside the CAVE.
  • LARGE AMOUNT OF WATER - as guides, we have observed that due to excitement, tourists would forget drinking water when inside the cave, only after they exit. Just get the smallest amount so to reduce weight you will be carrying.
  • JACKET - The cave is cold and freezing alright, but you won't feel that when you are inside, you will be perspiring when you get there anyway.
  • HAND-HELD FLASHLIGHT - The guides light is enough brighten your path, you won't need a one because you need both hands to make your way in and out of the cavern.
  • LARGE or HEAVY BACKPACK - this limits your movement and further gives additional weight for you to carry.
  • Rain coat - don't bring this in with you if your not planning a self sauna.

based on experience though, jubg ginawin kang tao, better to bring that handy jacket. you can ask your guide to leave it in the office muna kase when you get out from the cave, youd most likely be soaking wet and that cool breeze while walking home will most likely give you colds. hehehe...i had fever that night kaya have that handy paracetamol too. ;p
