Went back to Sagada with my high school friends last February 2 to 5. We took a van from Manila at 1:30am and picked up more of our friends in La Union. We drove through Tagudin, Ilocos Sur to get to Sagada.
We stopped by Bessang Pass for bio break.
We got to Sagada at around noon, then had lunch at Misty Lodge which was about two kilometers from Sagada’s town proper. Their burger and tinola were really good.
St. Joseph Rest House
One of my friends booked us at St. Joseph Rest House. It is the best place to stay in Sagada with its wide ground coverage which makes it accessible through the church and through the market.
Mud surfing at Echo Valley Trail
First stop after lunch was hike through Echo Valley trail.
Bonding by the Fire
Spelunking at Sumaging Cave
We went to Sumaging cave at 8 in the morning to ensure there won’t be that many people in the cave.
Hiking to Bomod-ok Falls
On our third day, we decided to wear our batch shirt. We took a different trail to avoid the throng of people who wanted to see the falls. I’m glad we did because the view along the trail was breathtaking.
When we arrived at the falls, it was full with people. After about half an hour, my friends and I were just the only ones left. We had the falls to ourselves!
On the way back, my friends opted to take the trail by the river. Turned out, we had to walk by the cliff!
We took a few stops to appreciate the view and enjoy the cool breeze.
Sea of Clouds
Saw this sea of clouds on our way from Sagada to Baguio. We parked by the road to take these awesome pictures.
