sagada - a charming countryside

it remains secluded in the middle of the Cordilera region at a height of 1480meters above sea level. a town where the hills meets the clouds.Sagada is a mountain town that is roughly ten to twelve hours away from the urban Manila. it is known for its tranquility and great adventure walks.this town has evolved from an untouched tribal village to a charming countryside town. it has kept intact some of the hanging coffins and burial caves.
we arrived around 12:30noon time with the sun out and perfect for a daywalk around Sagada's central town area. the bus trip was a great experience, it was not torturous as it was years back.
in the coming posts, we will bring you to some of its famous sites. my camera was damaged during the trip but lucky enough to have with me Kit and Nadz whose photos will be featured on eskapo's Sagada series.

my sagada experience was fantastic! went there with 3 friends, and went home with 6 more new friends and lots of great memories. super enjoy kami.

So if you travel that from Manila, and I travel from here to Manila via KLM... we'll arrive in our destinations at the same time.

The town is so beautiful. Wow the roof of the top of the jeep can sit so many people...lol. I always tried to pack in two cameras if I travel to a faraway country. My hubby said I always packed like I am taking the whole hosue with me while I go on vaccation....lol

sheng said...

Lovely Sagada...like Rico, i have been waiting for this too...

Layrayski said...

Hi, that looks like a lovely place to visit. 12 hours, huh? I'm sorry about your camera. Can it still be repaired or are you thinking about buying a new one instead?

Eel Wind said...

it reminds me of a place in Nepal called Nargarkot. Not that I've been there, I recently just watched a travelling documentary on that lovely place :)

bertN said...

Isn't that a pain in the you know where when your camera is damaged or lost on a trip and you do not have a back-up camera? I learned my lesson well - I always travel with a second camera or at least, my travel companion (if I am not traveling solo), has one.

Hilda said...

Beautiful, but so many houses already! I doubt if I will ever be able to survive a trip that long, so thank you for this new series!

nuts said...

Haaayy. HOpe to visit the place soon.. Better siguro to buy new camera na lang, looking forward for your next post. Would you recommend Sagada travel with kids?

I am Xprosaic said...

Sayang nasira camera mo! buti na lang may back up friends! jijijijijiji.... Sarap naman dyan!

walkwithmetothemoon said...

Bumili ka ng bagong camera. hehehe.

jasperjugan said...

Phivos Nicolaides said...

Sagada looks a very beautiful place of lovely Phlippines! I like the scenery.

Allen Yuarata said...

I feel a bit uneasy when I see photos of very remote places. Weird.

I hope your camera gets fixed soon. I wouldn't imagine this blog without all the photos. haha.

Carver said...

I'm sorry to hear about your camera. This looks like a beautiful mountain town. Great shots.

Heart of Rachel said...

It's beautiful. I've never been to that part.

I'm sorry about your camera. Hope it won't be that expensive to have it repaired.

coolwaterworks said...

This is now in my "to go to" lists...

Looking forward for your next post Dong... Great travel pics as always... Sana maayos na cam mo...

EastCoastLife said...

That is another quaint little town.

Hope you have your camera repaired.

Hi Dong. kailan din kaya ako makapunta dyan para maka-sanghap ng fresh na hangin?
Ingat lagi.
