sagada tour package sagada tour package

Sagada evokes a sense of freedom - liberation from things modern, of life that is stressful. No wonder many urbanites head off to this highland, never mind the 10 hour or so travel time because they know they will be rewarded by a sweeping view of the rice terraces, amazed by the hanging coffins, their tummies filled with sumptuous food that can only be found in the north. For the adventurous, a Sagada trip also offers both its caves and falls. Its people, all warm and gentle, welcome all to sample what they have. Come and join TRIPinas as we venture to the north. Sign up to our Sagada tour package and start travelling!

    SAGADA TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

    TREKKING IN SAGADA

    Three hours (round trip) of trekking from Aguid rice terraces to Bomod-ok falls. You can swim at the falls.
    The best way to explore Sagada and its environs is on foot. Make sure you have your trekking footwear with you as you make your way to Bomod-ok waterfalls. The jump-off is at Banga'an where the most beautiful rice terraces of Sagada are located. After registration, our guide will help you navigate the panoramic scenery and explain the rice farming customs in the area.
    You will be covering a distance of 2.5 kilometers, one way. Take note that you are coming from a higher elevation (1280 meters) and are going downhill - feel free to bring a walking stick to help you. Hiking these rice terraces is definitely a must-do in Sagada. After your walk, you will be rewarded by the cool and refreshing waters of Bomod-ok (aka Big waterfalls). Swimming is allowed so go take advantage and indulge!


    CAVE ADVENTURE

    Two hours of underground adventure for normal caving (Sumaging) and for the more adventurous three to four hours of Cave Connection from Lumiang to Sumaging cave. Explore the deepest caves of the Philippines with their underground rivers and natural pools where you can swim.
    There are more than 60 known caves in Sagada. The biggest and arguably the most popular is Sumaging. It takes about 2-3 hours to complete the cave adventure here. Find yourself surrounded by extra-ordinary rock formations and pristine waters.
    For those with will (and leg) power, the cave connection is the way to best experience these underground wonders. How does it work? Well, you enter the Lumiang cave (burial cave) and then exit at the Sumaguing cave. The entire connection takes about three to four hours to finish. Be prepared to crouch, crawl and squeeze yourself in tiny and awkward spaces. There are at least three rope-assisted descents plus one "climb". Don't let these difficulties stop you for you will be rewarded with an awesome experience.
    Over all, you can never say that you have visited Sagada until you have seen if from below.

    KILTEPAN VIEW POINT

    The fabled sea of clouds that can be seen from Kiltepan view point is legendary and made more famous by a romantic indie movie entitled That Thing called Tadhana. If you don't mind waking up early and hiking through the dark and bitter cold mornings of Sagada, you will be rewarded by a thick blanket of graceful clouds dancing upon the rice terraces of Kilong, Tetapan and Antadao --- the three barangays which names are used to make the portmanteau ID of the view point. Want less crowd? Head to the area in time for sunset, bring some lemon pie from the town and a thermos filled with hot coffee. Get ready to have your mind blown.

    CULTURAL TOUR

    We all have a culture vulture inside us. That's why TRIPinas incorporated a walking tour in Sagada to highlight the rich tradition of the place. Witness how rice is cultivated on mountainous areas, learn how and why coffins are "hung" instead of buried, why chickens are beaten to death before cooked or why head-hunting was practiced in the past. It's a must-do activity in Sagada to gain a better appreciation of our brothers and sisters from the north.

    BANAUE RICE TERRACES

    It took 2000 years for the Ifugaos to build the rice terraces. It is said that the total length of their walls is equivalent to half the earth circumference. The rice terraces can only be found in a few places on our planet: Vietnam, Indonesia, southern China and southern Japan. People who have visited all of them often mention the stone-walled rice terraces of Ifugao as the most beautiful on earth as they are the best built. They are also listed as a world heritage by UNESCO. The farming there is fully organic.

    What type of vehicle do you use for the private tours?
    We use the largest vans on the market but only assign a maximum of 12 participants per van so it's more comfortable. Beware of packages with more than 12 people per van, they overload their vans which is illegal and dangerous!

    It s a private room with a common/shared bathroom. You can also get a private room with private bathroom by paying an add-on.

    How much is the add-on for the cave?
