But before that, you must learn how they made that event possible!!
it started with planning, and voluntary wood collecting of none other than the SAGGAS boyz!
Preparation included guide volunteers for the wood gathering and clearing the area from Bat Dung :D, others, surveyed the area for security and fern collection (you'll know why later)
okay so enough with the preparation thing, "nag papa-awa lang kami ehh".. here are the experiences of the guests:
1) the Clouds, smudged the area, it created a cool cool atmosphere.
2) The fire build was not enough to heat all the Guests, they had to go near the camp fire, the problem was, they got smoked big time, they all went home smelling like charcoals.
3) Guests underestimated the coldness of the place, leading some to go home earlier. Others who were able to take the cold survive that part, but still there's another experience waiting for them yet.
above are guests who we can atleast say, they were prepared, but unfortunately went home early.. ahehehhehe4) Most tourists got hungry, the meal was so hard to cook, they had to wait for how many long hours, sorry for that :D but while waiting the guys had a few rounds of playing the Gongs and some Guitar Songs.

You do not get to do those things EVERYDAY,
its about time you say,
"hell, i made these and that and ill never forget what iv'e done there in SAGADA.
The Activity was set to finish just after midnight, so we had some few little talks and some socializing moments. Good night to Everyone, i hope none of them got locked out as we failed to alert some lodging owners of our activity :d
which no one got locked down, so far...
tsk! tsk! tsk!
For other groups who want to experience Bonfires in Sagada, it would be Great to ask you guide about your plans. Plan earlier as much as possible.
