The place is very tourist-y now. The solemnity of the place should be preserved. Regular monitoring of the locals should be enforced.

The Hanging Coffins only in Sagada, Mt. Province. Igorots oldest style of burial. It’s more impressive than any horror fiction that we beieved. Local tourist guides stories to all guests, that coffins were made by hollowing out logs that are smaller than the actual size...More

I totally appreciate that they have a rule in Sagada, due to the previous abuse of tourists, that you need a guide but it seems that you can't do ANYTHING without one here so feels a bit overkill. You can't just go off for a...More

The place is really amazing and I can't help but to wonder how ancient people got this kind of Idea - we were accompanied by our tour guide and was able to provide us info on it. Thank you!

Main reason for going to Sagada was to visit the hanging coffins. There was a long a queue and one cannot go without a guide, so we had to wait about 20 minutes for the guide to return back. The hanging coffins are interesting but...More

I think out of all the tours we made in Sagada the team that handled this area were the best. They knew what they were talking about and they were passionate about the history and culture of their people (these are Ifugao tourist guides). They...More

Nice walk and history of the local people. Pretty interesting to see and know how they put the coffins on the limestone cliffs. I liked the hike to the hanging coffins. Very relaxing

There are several places in and around Sagada where the famous hanging coffins can be viewed. The best is at Echo Valley. You are able to walk down so you are very close to them. The spectre is odd, eerie and certainly worthwhile. While it...More

Sagada is a very small town. We walked there with a guide. There are only a handful of hotel options in Sagada. Wherever you stay, you should be able to walk. Wear good shoes and have a good breakfast. The climb down is... 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. :)
