My friends and I planned for another vacation this year and we decided to conquer SAGADA 😊. Since we will going to have a long holiday vacation on November we figure it out that this is the best time to visit it. (I agree because I never been in SAGADA. It always been a dream for me to visit that place, I only saw it in a documentary program in GMA 7 before, i think that is iwitness.) So here it goes they booked a package tour @ PARANA tours for 3,200 petot per head for 3Days/2nights of stay) .
Watching Sagada’s awesome sunrise!
All of us were really excited for the long road trip via a small opps big van. A very long butt-aching ride before we reached our final destination lol :P. Good thing we had some several stop- over to discharge, refill our stomach and empty our bladders *wink. Tip: You have to prepare (5) five peso coin to be able to use a comfort room or else “sa bukid walang papel” hahaha
|We arrived arrived in Sagada late in the morning due to some circumstances we had in NLEX. We consumed too much time travelling that somewhat affect our itinerary. Everything is changed and re-arranged *lol. After our AG-TANG (agahan con tanghalian in a small restaurant) hahaha we just freshened ourselves and head as fast as we can to our guest house. Settling our things in our respective rooms, changed clothes and then off to go. We are so in rush in everything just to make sure that we are on the right track.. 😛 hahaha first stop: Hanging Coffins.
As we head off to our first stop which is Echo valley, We passed through this church St. Mary the Virgin Church and St. Mary’s cemetery. Passing through the cemetery gives me some eerie feeling hahaha kaba much eh (takut kasi ako sa sementeryo lalo na sa probinsya :().
|way that leads to the hanging coffins / CEMETERY
|Our group @ St. Mary the Virgin church
St. Mary’s church was built in year 1904 by American Missionaries and it was founded to spread the Christian faith in Sagada. If you walk at the ground you can see the green hill behind the church and the old bell on display. To see the hanging coffins really closer you’ll need to trek 20-30 minutes mabilis na siguro ang 20 minutes kung mabilis kang maglakad hehehe by the time we went there is almost sunset sobrang kuha lng kami ng photos and after that balik ulit sa main point. (katakot abutan ng dilim)
