SAGADA…SAGGAS (major, major LIKE!)

Written By (sagada genuine guides association inc). on Friday, September 10, 2010 | 8:12 PM

395kms away from Luneta; 5,000ft above sea level; 12hrs joyride… WOW SAGADA Mt. Province! It was my third attempt to visit and explore the so-called “Shangri-la of the Philippines”, and finally I was able to set my foot step on it.
The stressful-butt aching joyride vanished when we saw that we’re 385kms away from Manila, and finally 10 more kms to reach Sagada. We arrived high noon so we decided to had our lunch at Salt & Pepper Diner. After the savory lunch, we started exploring the wealth and wonders of Sagada. Accompanying our group was Daryl of SAGGAS and Ms. Sharon of Tour Tayo. On top of our itinerary was the Echo Valley where the Hanging Coffins were located. Next stop was the Sumaguing Cave where our skills and energy were tested. (I still can’t imagine how S’Jay was able to get through the wee channel). After finishing cave spelunking, we were pleased and overwhelmed of having to survive it. Before our Day1 ends, we had dinner (bonfire) at Rock-in Café.
Our Day2 started very early as we went to Kiltepan Pk. to witness the rising of the sun. Then, we had our breakfast at the famous Lemon Pie House. After the watery breakfast, we proceeded to trek Bomod-Ok Falls. It was a memorable 4hrs trek (due to adrenaline rush, I was able to dipped myself in the ice-cold waterfalls). We had our lunch at Yoghurt House then continue to explore Lake Danum, Pottery House, Ganduyan Museum, & Sagada Weaving. To cap our tour was to hunt for souvenirs, where we immediately looked for the shirt saying we survived Sagada.
Though time really flies fast, we had a very wonderful and memorable experienced in Sagada. Thanks to our guide Daryl for being a very nice buddy, for sharing thoughts of their Shangri-la, for letting us discover the wonders of Sagada even for a short period time, and for making us feel the warm welcome of sagadians.
Thanks to Ms. Sharon of Tour Tayo (and Kuya Jun our driver) for arranging our tour. Thanks to my travel buddies- Archie, S’Jay, Angel, M’Malou, Ronie, Kenson, Wency, Rhoda, and Diane for making our trip superb and fun filled. … ‘Til next time… my visit to SAGADA deserve a (major, major LIKE!) shout-out.
