Sagada, Mountain Province: The Philippines Gateway to Heaven

The first time I sat foot to Sagada, I instantly fell in love with the place. It’s like I am on the other side of the planet. Many say that Sagada is what Baguio City used to be before development and commercialization engulfed it. Forget about the long hours of travel (approximately 6 hours by bus from Baguio City) and the very steep and mountainous road as everything is worth it when you arrive there.

THINGS TO DO AND SEE

a. First, simply enjoy and embrace the cold weather of Sagada. It’s a breathe of fresh air from the humid and hot temperature of the city.

b. Though we skipped this as we come from a province with a lot of caves, go spelunking at Sumaguing Cave as it is the number one activity in Sagada. The cave has magnificent stalactite and stalagmite formations and ideal for those who are more adventurous and thrill-seekers.

c. See the breathtaking view of the sunrise at Kiltepan Peak. Witnessing sea of clouds is either a hit or a miss depending on weather conditions, sadly during our time we missed it.

d. Travel further to the northern part and see Sagada’s famous rice terraces (breathtaking literally) and be rewarded at the end of the trek of the beautiful sight of Bomod-ok Falls.

e. Hike Mt. Ampacao, known to be the highest peak in Sagada. After crossing another mountains, the trail will eventually lead you to Lake Danum.

f. Explore the town proper and see Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, Hanging Coffins at Echo Valley and Bokong Falls.

g. Food tripping. Your trip to Sagada will not be complete if you haven’t been to the Lemon Pie House and Yoghurt House.

HOW TO GET THERE

Ride a bus at GL Liner Terminal in Baguio Dangwa Terminal. It directly goes to Sagada. Bus fare is around 200 pesos. Earliest bus departs at 5:30 a.m. and leaves every hour. Last bus departs at 1:00 p.m.

    Wait… back up… Tyra Banks and Beyonce put on wigs? Hey, just about every person in Hollywood has donned head of hair that is not her sooner or later or some other! It is just they use African United states entrance lace wigs, and that is the reason why you [url=http://wigs-forwomen.com/]Human Hair Wigs[/url]

    So, why do these front lace wigs look so natural? Nicely, first of all, allow it be claimed that [url=http://wigsforblack-women.net/]Wigs[/url]
    full lace wigs appear more normal than entrance lace wigs – total lace wigs could be fashioned in various methods and also [url=http://vivicafoxwigs.org/]Vivica Fox Wigs[/url]
    donned up in ponytails without looking like a wig. Simply because the hair of complete lace wigs (and front side lace wigs) are [url=http://wigs-forwomen.com/]Wigs For Women[/url]
