Do on a different day to the cave. After completing the cave our energy was gone. The view of the eco (should be echo) valley is fantastic and we saw the hanging coffins from a distance as we lacked the energy to walk down after...More

A guide is required (Php200 per group) to enter the Cemetery and Echo Valley. At first we thought it’s a tourist trap. Having been here a couple of years back, i was sure we don’t need a guide it’s simply walking along the pathway. Apparently...More

The people of Sagada practice the ancient funeral custom of hanging coffins on the limestone cliff. It is believed that this practice was meant to place the departed closer to heaven, and usually reserved for the nobles. The higher the coffin, the more valued the...More

There are a lot of steps to go down and see the coffins close up. It's the getting back up those steps that takes it's toll especially when you have been hiking for a few days! Worth seeing. If you can't do the steps, there...More

The practice of hanging coffins on a cliff face has now died out so it is definitely worth visiting the site. There’s a bit of a trek (with steps and railings, not through the wilderness) so you have to allow yourself some time if you’re...More

We saw the coffins in Echo Valley and in entrance of the Lumiang cave. Interesting. And the guides had a different view point on the subject, for example do they practice this anymore and why the coffins are in a different size.

Since the tourism book in Sagada, the concrete and steel path towards the hanging coffins has taken over. The original dangerous, fun and adventurous route is no longer available... Still worth seeing, but I wish the local governing body left the track more natural and...More

I'm sorry sir. But you commented on the wrong review with regards to the fees the guides are charging. In my review, i did not write any negative remarks about the prices charged by the guides. :)

I wouldn't recommend trying to do a tour from Banaue to Sagada in one day. You should stop in Bontoc and take in the wonderful museum (give it at least one hour) and then get to Sagada with a jeepney, and do a tour of the... More
