Second time to visit the place since I promised I will return. The surroundings provide a feast for the eye especially those who love nature and the local culture. People are warm and welcoming. This is a place that is really close to my heart. Gargar Dominicus Dominicus Allianz

Don't know why you have to pay so much for a guide who is supposed to "guide" you on an easy single path in order to show you some coffins in the air. To protect you from dangers, i wonder which ones. I respect their culture but this is just theft, nothing else. I have visited quite a lot of... More

A short walk from the main street takes you to Echo valley where Hanging Coffins can be seen. You pass the main church and pick up a guide shortly after. The path goes through the cemetery before dropping down into the valley. There is a viewpoint through the trees to the cliff face where a group of coffins hang. A... More

The Hanging Coffins are located in the Echo Valley. They say that it is named Echo Valley because there’s really an echo in almost everywhere you shout and voice out your feelings. But, this place is sacred for the locals because this is where the bodies of their brethren lie. They are a famous tourist spot here in Echo Valley.... More

This tour proved that one needs to go and experience a certain destination to personally describe the feeling and history behind it. Most of the reasons written in the internet about the reason behind these hanging coffins are false. Try going and experience it on your own. Listen to the guide and be fit, It takes a lot of walking... More

A must do if you are passing through but i wonder if they really merit all the fuss of getting to Sagada. Non of the travel books seems up to date either..... it is now OBLIGATORY to have a guide. It is a very short walk so all the talk of getting lost and dangers are just to justify the... More

The famous hanging coffins is just a brisk walk from the town proper and must be the nearest and very accessible attraction on foot. It showcases the age-old tradition of how they pay respect to the remains of their departed relatives. Tourist guides are available to tell you more about the tradition among others.

You have to pay a guide to see it. But he doesn't know much more than you. Really it's not impressive. I should have check the pictures on Google, that's all you going to see. Btw the view on the way are nice, but you can find better elsewhere.

The Sagada community do an outstanding job managing tourist activity in their town. The fee charged is well worth it. The guided tour of the coffins and cave was good and provides employment for the locals. The cleanliness of the town and sites was very good - hardly any litter which was a nice change from Banaue which was trashed... More
