for 1st timers with tight sked, you can avail the package, mura lang naman, i guess merong nag-ooffer P3,500 lang kasama na lahat pati transpo from manila.

if you have time to reseach, read this para DIY kayo. iba pa din kasi pag may alam ka about the place prior to going there.

everything you need to know, masasagot ng blog ni Gareth (he's an Igorot and the famous guide in Sagada)

yung caving na activity parang may leveling po sya. You can choose the basic caving na more of a sight seeing lang. I noticed na eto lang yung kinukuna ng mga ibang foreigners lalo na yung may mga kasamang bata at babae. Umaatras daw sila kapag sinasabi ng guide na may part na madulas, maputik at may poopoo ng bat.

yung cave connection kasi ay lulusot ka sa mga imposible to reach na lugar and may part talaga na mag dive ka sa tubig.

cave connection is the highlight of the sagada trip. natapos namin sya in 6 hours and after that we are sagada certified!  ;D

^ madaming foreigners sa cordillera region. parang sabik sila sa bundok.  ;D

lahat may dala dalang lonely planet book translated in their own language. galing. inaaral talaga nila ang pilipinas.

eto mga common na pinupuntahan nila (based sa mga chinika kong french, portugese, canadian, at german guests) - El Nido, Batad, and Sagada. world class! :)

Ang sarap sa Sagada!!!

I thought magiging disaster na trip namin due to the following reasons...

1. Si bf kasi late dumating! Hindi namin naabutan yung 830 pm trip sa Cable tours kaya nag Florida (Banaue) na lang kami.
2. Nalaglag sa taxi cp ni BF on our way to Florida... (Bad mood tuloy si BF sa byahe)

BUTI na lang na-enjoy pa rin namin ang bakasyon!

Pagdating namin sa Banaue, naki-join kami sa Jeep na derecho ng Sagada. Turns out, yung mga kasabay namin sa jeep, sila din pala ang makakasama namin sa tours. Hehe! Tipid sa vehicle and guide fee! Uber sight-seeing kami ng Rice Terraces. Lahat ng viewing point ngstop-over kami! :)

Day 1-- Spelunking agad... (Nilakad lang namin back and forth.)
Almost 2.5 hours inabot namin sa cave. Ansaya! Need lang talaga ng gloves para hindi masugat ang kamay kakahawak ng bato and lubid! :p

Day 2
Kiltepan Sunrise -- failed! Uber fog!
Rock Inn for breakfast and orange picking sana! Kaso bawal na daw dahil kaka-spray lang daw ng insecticide. :( another fail!
Bomod-ok falls -- super tiring! Feeling ko mas napagod ako dito kesa sa cave! Siguro kasi hindi ko na-enjoy yung falls, di kasi nakapagswim e! :(
St. Mary, Cemetary, Hanging Coffins -- not much to see pero daming kwento ng guide namin!
Sagada Pottery -- ilang mins lang kami dito. We paid 100 for demo.
Sunset at Lake Danum --failed ulit! Hmppp! Mga 5 mins lang, nagtago na yung sun sa clouds! Huhu!

Well, swertihan lang daw talaga yung sunrise and sunset dun! Haha!

Day 3 -- Marlboro Mountain! Ayun, puro fog ulit!

Day 4 -- Souvenir hunt and Ganduyan Museum (nose bleed kami sa owner! Whew! English ang lola mo all the way!)

Sagada-Baguio ang route namin pa-uwi... Hays. Mejo nahilo pa ko sa byahe! Oh Halsema H-way! Grabe ka!

Eto naman mga kinainan namin:
1. Lemon Pie House - Di naman ganun kasarap ang pie nila. :( pero ayos ang ambience! Laid-back na laid-back! :)
2. Yoghurt House - Hindi ko nagustuhan ang yogurt nila... Huhuhu!
3. Salt and Pepper - So far eto ang pinaka nagustuhan ko!
4. Rock Inn - So-so.
5. Pinikpikan House - Tasted pinikpikan pero taste lang talaga! Si bf talaga kumain!
6. BBQ stall malapit sa munisipyo - Ang sarap ng BBQ ni ate!
7. Alfredo's Resto - So-so lang din ang food.

(Sorry! Ang haba ng post ko! Hehe! 1st timer e! will definitely go back for cave connection!  ;) )
I'm not lost, just undiscovered.
