(a famous question by tourists)
The following sites are arranged according to uniqueness and how often spots are visited. There are 5 priorities. Priority 1 are sights that can be visited in 1 day, for Priority 2, you add 1 more day. Priority 3 can still be stretched with priority 1 and 2. Priority 3 sights are also additional sights for people who are more adventurous and for tourists wanting to stretch their visit.
Priority 4 and 5 are sights to be visited by second timers, third timers or for tourists staying in Sagada for a week. Priority 5 sights are specially arranged. But first time visitors could also include this in their itinerary.
Priority 1: (not to miss sights) (1 day activity)
• Sumaging Cave (Lumiang Cave included)
Do not just view the entrance, tour a whole new world underneath. And after that, buy the shirt that says, You SURVIVED... hahahaha
• Echo Valley (Saint Mary’s Church, Hanging Coffins Included)
Take a tour to the Limestone Valley and Great Hanging Coffins, Sagada’s most unique culture.
• Pongas Falls (Suyo Rice Terraces)
Have a trek to the rice fields and the Ankileng village. Take the Rivering route to the waterfalls
Priority 2: sights to visit if you have more time and days to spare in Sagada (2nd day)
• Kiltepan Peak (sight of the Sunrise)
Have a glimpse of the rice terraces and great mountain ranges, and the majestic sunrise with mystic clouds lying in between mountains.
• Mt. Ampacao (lake Danum included)
Trek on top of the mountain ranges, overlooking central Sagada.
Priority 3: these are sites if you want to stretch your visit to Sagada to the maximum.
• Underground River (trek to the mouth of the cave only)
You can include this sight to your tour list when visiting the Echo Valley. Also include Bokong falls to create a clustered sight seeing tour package trip.
• Bokong Falls
This may not be that hard and interesting as the Bomod-ok falls but this is perfect for people wanting to have a dip, dive, and swim on its naturally hollowed pool.
• Demang Village
If you want to know more about Sagada’s Culture and traditions, you can pass by the place or have a guided tour around it.
Priority 4 (for second timer visitors or more who are looking for more adventure)
• Cave Connecting
Not only for second timers, but newbie’s can also take the tour to the cave immediately even without visiting Sumaging, as Sumaging cave would be its exit. Be prepared for lots of twist turns, rope assisted descents and climbs.
• Marlboro Mountain (for Trekking, and Wild Horse Spotting)
Take a trek to the bald mountains located east of Sagada
• Balangagan Cave
This includes both trekking going to the location of the cave and exploration of the cave.
Priority 5: (for tourists that are looking for super challenges in life and are sick and bored of visiting Sagada’s touristy spots.) try the ff:
• Natividad Cave
• Crystal Cave
• Mount Polis Trek
• Mount Sisipitan Camping and Trekking
