Sagada

Sagada

Located 275 kilometers north of Manila, 140 km. from Baguio, Sagada nestles in a valley at the upper end of the Malitep tributary of the Chico River enveloped between the main Cordillera Ranges and the Ilocos Range. Mt. Data in the south and Mt. Kalawitan in the southeast pierce the horizon. Mt. Polis, Bessang and Mt. Tirad in the east and Mt. Sisipitan in the north mark the Mountain Province – Abra boundary.

Sagada is a prosperous town comprised of mostly farming families and others associated with agriculture. There are no tricycles here, which is a silent blessing. The quality of education that has been available here has been high, especially with the older generation. Intelligence displays itself as a community trait and the peacefulness and stability of the community is obvious at once. Very good English is widely spoken as the second language, rather than Tagalog. The Episcopal Church (Church of England) was the first to arrive here in 1901and be accepted, which has resulted in a unique spiritual partnership between the traditional ritual observances and the Christian. The community today is predominantly Episcopalian which adds an interesting slant in a country which is about 85% Roman Catholic.

Getting to Sagada

Hire Van- unquestionably, the best way to get to Sagada is by hire van, especially for those who would or could not go by public transport. There are no airports anywhere near Sagada so bus and private vehicle are the only options. The travelling time from Manila to Sagada is roughly 12 hours. The first 6 hours will get you to Baguio, and there are luxury coaches that also ply this route- Victory Liner is the best choice. The second part of the journey will take you along the Halsema Highway with stunning vistas almost all of the way to Sagada as the road winds over a mountain range reaching a maximum of 7,000ft. There are so many beautiful places where you would want to stop and go “wow”, which you can’t do by bus. Going by van then leave two options, one is to get picked up at the airport and go all the way to Sagada by van, the other is to go by bus to Baguio and take the van from there.

From Manila to Baguio and onto Sagada by Bus- they have buses going every half hour from a number of lacations in Manila, but only severa are deluxe. The closest Victory Liner bus terminal to the airport is at Pasay, Regular bus is P450, and deluxe is P700.

From the Victory Liner terminal in Baguio catch a taxi to the GL Liner terminal- just tell the taxi driver you are going to Sagada, they all know which terminal to take you to. Taxi is about P50. You can get some coffee and breakfast at the GL Liner terminal while you wait for the first bus to Sagada.

The first GL liner bus leaves at 6:15am the last a 1pm. The trip typically takes 6 hours and the best views are on the right hand side of the bus (left hand side going back to Baguio). Going back to Baguio, the first bus leaves Sagada at 5am then 7am and several more usually, with the last being at 1pm.

Bontoc to Sagada- regular jeepneys to Sagada leave from a side street just off the main road in Bontoc. Anyone you asked could tell you where. The first jeep leaves at 8:30am, then on a regular basis after that until 5:00pm. It leaves when it is full. The trip takes 45 minutes. Jeepneys leave regularly for Bontoc, where you can take other transport on to Banaue or Manila. Last jeep leaves at 1:00pm. If you have the time, spend few days in Tinglayan(via Bontoc).

Accommodation

The recent increase in of the number of Filipino tourists coming from Manila stretches Sagada accommodation beyond its limits during the peak holiday seasons. To meet this growing demand, lots of new guest’s houses have sprung up and more are under constructions. Some of those have been included below.

Guest houses with guest cooking facilities- many of the guest houses now have cooking facilities for the use of their guests which can reduce your travel costs significally if you are on a tight budget, especially if you are part of a large family as it can be expensive to feed them all on restaurant food for three meals a day. Note though that if you want to do your own cooking, there are no maids in Sagada to clean up after you, so you will probably need to do it all yourself, including washing all your pans and dishes.

Sagada Home Stay- the place is probably more like a guest house then a home- stay but that hardly matters. Downstairs there is the large dining room adjacent to a large well equipped modern kitchen for the use of the guests. Everything you would need to create a banquette is there if you like gas stove, toaster oven, microwave, pots fry pans etc. a small donation is required to cover the cost of gas and you will of course need to pay for any consumables that you have used. Upstairs there are 6 bedrooms, most with fantastic views over Sagada town center. One bedroom has a private bathroom (P 700 for the room) and the five other bedrooms share 4 bathrooms between them (P 250 per person) all bathrooms have hot showers. Unlimited Wi-Fi is available at P40 for a day and there is a computer available for emails and surfing at P40 per hour. There is also a separate outside cottage which is available for P1, 500 per night. It has two separate bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen and accommodates up to 4 people.

Sagada home stay is located about 200 meters from the bus stop in the center of town. To get there walk up the hill past the Log Cabin and take the lane on your left at the right hand bend in the road. You can’t miss it and it is only about 200 meters from the bus stop. If you have your own car, just continue along the road and it is only about 50 meters past the first left hand bend.

Sagada home stay has made it to the new 2009 Lonely Planet Guide so I would assume that it will become quite popular soon. Booking require a 50% non refundable deposit, except during Christmas and holy week holidays where you need to pay in full (Payment by bank transfer).

Log Cabin Guest Room- The room above the Log Cabin Restaurant has always been my first choice in accommodation, but there is only one room. It is one of the most comfortable rooms in town, with its own bathroom (very nice), cozy décor and its own private balcony and a partial view down the valley. This would be a lovely place for two people and the cost is P800 per night. Booking is essential. The kitchen downstairs makes great office, but meals must be ordered ahead. Evening meals can be served in your room or on the balcony. For reservations, call Dave Gulian 09205200463.

Canaway Rest house – it is surprisingly nice inside and very very cheap at P200 per person with private bathroom and hot showers. There are three bedrooms on the second floor that join onto a small common room with couch and TV. Each room has a private bathroom. Two of the rooms have double bed and the larger room has 2 double beds. There is a very large room on the top floor with two bathrooms but that room is about to be converted into two separate rooms. Outside on the 3rd floor there is a sink and area that can be used for cooking if you want to cook your own food. Cooking equipment can be supplied and you will only need to pay a small amount for the use of the gas. It is not set up in a way such that you can just cook anytime you like, as in most other places that have kitchens. Canaway is right next to George Guest House and across the road from The Residential Lodge, about 400 meters down the hill from the center down. Call +63 918 291 5063

The Residential Lodge- it is opposite Canaway and next to Traveller’s Inn. This looks like an old place that has had a major face lift, and it does look fairly new inside. With 14 rooms over three floors, it is quite a big guest house. The best room, which is on the second floor, has a private bathroom and bath tub and is P250 per person, even for one. All rooms with private bathrooms are P250 per person and those with share bathrooms are P200 per person. All bathrooms have hot showers. The common areas are large and there is an open fire place on the second floor. There are kitchens for the use of the guest on the lower ground and ground floors. The lower ground floor is still mostly above ground level as the building is on the side of a hill. Contact Mary Daoas +63 919 672 8744 eldone21@yahoo.com standaoas@yahoo.com.

George Guest House- it is opposite Canaway and it is being described as the most colorful and garish building in town. The interiors are similarly decorated.

For reservation contact 0918 548 0406/0920 607 0994 or just log on to George.guesthouse@yahoo.com

Travelers Inn- it is a low cost guest house if prissy décor is not your thing. There is no or much luxury here, but sometimes that can be nice, especially since the prices are good. There is the type of place where and you are likely to meet “travelers on a shoestring” with whom to compare and share travel stories. There are 14 rooms on two floors of which 3 private bathrooms. There is a kitchen on the second floor for the use of the guests. All rooms with share bathrooms are P200 per person and those with private bathrooms are P250 per person. The rooms with share bathrooms are P175 if you stay more thean 3 days and P150 if you stay a week or more. Lope is an interesting character and a very good artist/potter. At the front store he displays his products which he made from his little shop situated at Mapiya-aw. Traveler’s inn is down the road from the Municipal Hall road and just past the Yoghurt House Restaurant on your left. It is also next to the Residential Lodge. For inn reservations just email aprilmay_25@yahoo.com /lopebosaing@yahoo.com.ph

Saint Joseph Rest House- with 27 rooms and cottages, this is the largest guest house in Sagada. It is directly behind the in the center of the town. The rest house is owned by the Episcopalian church. The rooms and cottages are set in beautiful which is one of its major draw cards. A wide variety of room types and rates are on offer, from dormitory accommodation to private cottages. The rates are per room and not per individual. Double rooms with share bathrooms, without hot shower costs P500. The very large Café saint Joe is also on the grounds. To get there, take either one or two ways up, both by steps and by pathway from the main road behind the bus stop and towards the white building at the top. If you are in car, take the right fork in the road past Ganduyan and enter Saint Joseph from the back car park, where your car can be left securely. If you want to know the room rates just contact Julia Abad at her Number 0928 951 7156.

Mapiya-aw Pension- it is a good choice for those who are looking for peace and quiet outside of the peak season. It is set off the main road 100 meters uphill through a forest and is very pretty and peaceful. You would have passed the sign on the way into town. The Pension was purpose built, all unpainted wood, cozy and there are 14 rooms. In winter you can use either or both of two fireplaces on request. The upstairs fireplace would be gorgeous with friends during the winter months; Balconies are abundant, which is always nice. Dorm rooms are P250 per person (cold showers). A double room with bath shared with one other room is P600 (cold shower) families can book both rooms for P1200. There is a lovely double room on the top floor for P1200 but the bathroom with hot shower is downstairs. Meals can be prepared for you if you order ahead and the kitchen is available for your own meal preparations for a reasonable fee. The garden is lovely. The walk into the centre of town takes about 15 minutes. For reservations call Esperanza Solang- 09213900560.

Rock Inn- it is about a 40 minute walk out of town and people who stay there usually have their own car. The junction to Rock Inn is a little before you get to Sagada and then it is about a kilometer to the guest house from there. It is set an orange orchard, so the fresh juice is a must. This facility, which is relatively new, can accommodate large groups and would be useful as a retreat or seminar venue. The dining room is very beautiful architecturally. The attic room can accommodate 18 people at P250 per head. The bunk rooms start at P450 per person making it very expensive in comparison to other Sagada accommodation. There are some “executive” type rooms which may be reasonable value per head. Tel +63 920909 5899

Ganduyan Café and Inn- Located in the center of the town and part of the building incorporating the Ganduyan Museum and Ganduyan Souvenirs. This is one of the very earliest guest houses in Sagada and still popular at a cost of P200 per night with share bathroom. The rooms with private bathroom and hot shower are P600 and accommodate 2 people- maybe a little expensive. Downstairs is a small café where you can have a good breakfast of bacon, eggs and brewed coffee.

Sagada Guest House- it is right in the center of town just behind the new ghastly municipal building newly made. Normal rates are P150 single, P300 double share bath, P600 for 3 beds, bathroom with hot water. Rooms go up in elevation and price to P800, P1000 and P1200, with kitchen, bathroom with hot water and one with cable TV. These rooms can accommodate 3, 4 or 5 persons. There is rooftop available for viewing the vistas. For reservations contact 09193002763

The Green House- is on the right, 50 meters down the hill past the Municipal Hall, behind the Persimoon Café (a popular drinking place). This is an old establishment, a home stay, inexpensive and popular with the hippies- the price is around P200 per person and they do not accept booking.

Restaurants

Log Cabin Buffet- the buffet on Saturday night at the log cabin is not to be missed. For 350 you get a buffet of many courses prepared by a local French chef. It is virtually impossible to get a seat for the buffet without booking early, which is sometimes means days ahead. In making a reservation you should at least deposit P100 per person.

Yoghurt House- is a short walk down the hill and remains one of the favorites among visitors Yoghurt dishes are served with fruits, granola, pancakes, or mixed as a salad dressing for fresh local vegetables. Pasta, salads, vegetarian meals are all available here. The food is consistently good and it is very popular with foreigners especially.

Co-op Canteen- is just inside the mission gates as you walk towards the Episcopalian Church. They serve fabulous lemon meringue pie, banana cake or carrot cake. The coffee is good too, or you can have mountain tea. Meals are not served here. Almost all of the customers are locals so the prices are very low.

Strawberry Fast Food- opposite the Log Cabin- a tiny no-frills restaurant which serves two of the simple but classic Filipino dishes, Arozcaldo, a chicken and rice stew which is breakfast dish, and a Mami, which is a chixken or pork noodle soup.

Masferres- it is a large restaurant in the centre of town. A favorite with Filipinos from manila as it serves up the dishes they like and are familiar with. The Masferres’ photographs on the wall are a must to see even if you don’t eat at the restaurant.

Log Cabin- it is open every night during the peak season and some nights during the rest of the year, depending on the number of guests. Meals should be booked and ordered before 2 in the afternoon during the low season. The menu is broad and offers European influenced meals, vegetables and salads, as well as the usual ‘adobo’ choices. If you want to make sure you get the best of possible meals, discuss with the manager. Wine is available. During the cold months there is always a nice fire to sit by and the ambience is that of log cabin.

Café Saint Joe- it is in the same grounds as Saint Joseph Rest House. It has Beautiful setting, lovely verandah upstairs, and outdoor seating. The menu on offer is extensive, Filipino, and generally agreed to be good. Generous servings of fresh vegetables can be expected. Bread, sweet and savory, is baked by the local chef and can be bought by the loaf. This café is open all day.

Ganduyan Inn- is in the heart of town and makes a good cup of brewed coffee. Bacon and eggs, bacon sandwiches, etc is available here. The inn only serves breakfast meals.

Bana’s Café (and restaurant) – is situated under Travellers Inn, just down the hill from the Yoghurt house. It is a pleasant coffee shop with both indoor and outdoor seating. If you are tired of 3 in 1 and Nescafe, this place is welcome relief- it is the only place in town serving espresso coffee. A variety of coffee styles is available, brewed, espresso or iced. Try one of their famous civet coffees, made from coffee beans excreted by a civet.

Persimoon Café- it is popular at night as the hangout for locals and backpacking tourists, a popular drinking place where you can also have a nice music to hear.

Cuisine Igorota- is almost unknown by tourists and serves typical Igorot food. It is best at lunchtime. It is situated behind St. Theodore’s Hospital.just go inside the hospital and ask. A meal costs P70 and could be pork stew, bones soup, pork chop, sinigang, adobo, and chicken all served with generous quantities of local vegetables. Coffee of tea is P10.

Bilig Café- it is downstairs at the market, next to the Rural Bank. This is the okd Shamrock, once the life of Sagada until it was transferred from its original position because of the development of the market building. Basic meals can be prepared there or you can just have a beer.

Don’t forget also to have a look at the wag-wag displayed on the street leading from the market. Most of the clothes come from the US and Europe, many are brand new, and there are often famous brand names amongst them. Simple garments are typically P50 each.

**Two Guides’ Associations- there used to be one only but due to differences in opinion, they have split into two. The original guides’ association is at the municipal hall in the center of town and the newer one is just down the road past the Yoghurt House. Their prices are about the same and all have only certified and registered guides. Part of their training involves rescue and first aid training. The original association is made up of the more experienced and older guides, where the new association has younger guides. So take your pick. The guides work on a rotation system that assures all of them work. It is easy to lose your way, so if your schedule is tight, best take a guide. They are not expensive.

Sagada Attractions

The burial cave- is accessible to most people and can be visited without a guide during off-peak seasons. The climb down is steep towards the end and probably difficult for the elderly or very young children. This is a fascinating place, eerie and dramatic. Please keep in mind that this place is sacred to the locals, so leave no garbage, cigarette butts or wrappers and do not touch the coffin or try to open them. The cave is marked on the local tourist map. The walk down the hill is gorgeous. Don’t hesitate to ask the locals if you are unsure of the way.

Sumaging cave- Sumaguing Cave has the largest chamber of all connecting caves in town (there are more than 60 known caves underneath Sagada). One needs to trek down a slippery trail from its mouth to see the magnificent formations of stalactites and stalagmites that took thousands of years to shape. These formations were carefully sculpted by nature itself to form contours that were given fancy names such as king and queen’s curtains, giant fudge, pregnant woman, Mickey Mouse, alligator, dancing hall and rice terraces.

The Big Waterfall- Bomod-ok- to get there take the morning jeepney to Banga-an and ask to let off at the big falls. The jeep leaves from the center of Sagada and the guides association can tell you the times. Find out about the times for return trips too as you will not want to be walking back to Sagada. The walk down the endless stairs is fabulous, the scenery divine. The falls themselves, once you reach them (1-1 ½ hrs) are predictably thunderous and dramatic. Swim in the freezing waters if you like the sort of thing, but get advice about the conditions from a guide first for safety precautions.

The climb back to the road is strenuous. The steps seem to never end. Allow a couple of hours- if unfit, add another hour.

Bokong Falls - Small falls is one of the nearest sights for a tour; it would take you around 30 minutes to walk and 7 minutes to travel with vehicle from the municipal hall. The sight may sure not be as scenic as it can be but, for the sake of walking and nothing to do anyway, you can take a side trip to this falls. Actually, it’s not the waterfalls that interesting here, it’s the 12 feet deep pool. You can take a dip in the pool after the hard day’s tour.

Marlboro country- If you are looking for the best view on top of the world and wild horses, then Marlboro Country is the place to go. Located in Lamagan which is on the western part of Sagada, the place is one of the highest points of Sagada.

Kiltepan- on your town you will have passed the sign to Mapiya-aw Guest House. From that side road there is a path on the right leading to the top of the hill called Kiltepan. Locals can show you this or ask at the guest house further up the road if you will find a path to follow for just 20 meters of so. To your left are little paths leading down to some rocks, where you can sit and ooo-ahh at the spectacular scenery and endless mountain panorama. This is a favorite place for me to bring guests in Sagada.

Mount Ampacao- the peak of Mt Ampacao is the site of a cell phone tower, eerily lit at night, clearly visible in Sagada. To reach the road you drive downhill toward Ambasing. When you reach the Ambasing Elementary School on your right, take the road that runs alongside it and head uphill. Keep going up, closing gates behind you, until you reach the grassy clearing at the top. The actual peak and tower are higher still- not accessible by car. Find a good spot to park where you can see the view back Sagada then start your walk towards the tower…

Lake danum- This place borders Sagada and its neighboring municipality Besao.  A place where the name SAGADA was created. Lake Danum a term given the I-Sagada literally means “lake water”. The body of water, however, is more of a Big Pond than a lake. Within the vicinity is where the Tourists often wait and spot the Sunset. Before or after touring the place you can drop by at the Sagada Pottery.

Echo Valley- You can actually see this from Sagada’s main highway, but it’s cooler to actually be on the valley. Its a 20-minute walk/hike from the town. You’ll pass by the “free” cemetery, where they actually use wood instead of candles to remember the dead. It can be creepy to see the whole cemetery lighting up during All Souls Day. Just walking here you can pass by at the under ground river.

Ganduyan museum- formerly opened in 1984 to 1986, the treasures gathered over many years are once again on display in a newly opened small museum just beside Ganduyan Inn. Antique basketry, weapons, farm tools, beads, jars, wooden items and textiles can be seen here. Each display offers an insight into the rich culture of the Cordillera Igorots. Ask the owner Mrs. Christina Aben or one of her children to show you around and tell stories which will enrich your experience of the place. Entrance fee is P25 each.

Things to buy in Sagada- Pasalubong

There are lots of little souvenir shops selling low cost trinkets and local products to take back as pasalubong to Manila.(Filipinos’ have to take back small gifts, called pasalubong, for family and friends when they have been on a holiday, or face being called “kuripot”, which means a tight one”.)

Ganduyan Souvenirs- Commissions work from Kalinga- beaded bags and purses- very nice- also, the fantastic headgear of the head-hunter, made by an old man who has always made these ritual symbols of the warrior’s success- expensive, large, but extraordinary I have one bat am not entitle to wear it until I have taken human head. Traditional basketry has always been favorite of mine and I have found Ganduyan to be the best supplies, from where io have bought many. Their weavers copy the traditional design and their work is very fine. The basket weavers, however, are getting old and the rattan baskets are becoming very scarce and may shortly disappear altogether. Prices in this shop are fixed.

Sagada Weavers – is famous for its sturdy locally woven cloth which is made into backpacks, overnight bags, smaller bags and purses, wallets- all kinds of things a local industry worth supporting. Many other shops now sell locally woven cloth and, backpack, wallets etc

Pottery- There are locals and foreigners who produce fine pottery from the clay, it is Ok to visit their workshop which is about 1.3km from the centre of town the road to Besao. It is on the right and a little obscured. There are lovely views on this walk. Even if no one is there it is Ok to look around, but please, please do not touch the work. There is a small shop on site and very nice pottery is on sale if someone is there. Also have a look at the shop of the Travellers Inn where Lope Bosaing displays and sells his pottery. He is a very keen and fine potter and would be able to give some good insights into what to look for and to buy.

Masferre’s – ‘A Tribute to the Philippines Cordillera’- is a book of black and white photos taken by Masferre, a resident of this town during the late 1930’s 40’s and 50’s. The images are beautiful and have captured the people of this region in a way that is no longer available to the photographer. Have a look at the book-a wonderful souvenir of this unique region. Masferre’s Restaurant displays many of his pictures on the walls.

Arabica coffee, locally grown and roasted, available as beans or pre-ground is available generally. Mountain tae, harvested from forest trees, leaves are dried whole and sold by the bag. An aromatic brew, caffeine free, very nice boiled with lemon grass or on its own, Rice and fruit wines – guava, lemon, pineapple, mulberry, rice, persimmon, anything really can be made into wine here. Wines made here have low alcohol content and are sweet.

Important Dates to Keep in Mind

Any public holiday or vacation in the Philippines is met with a mass exodus from Manila. This means guest houses are full, restaurants are full, the caves are full, the roads are choked etc. New Year, Easter, All Saints day, Labor Day – stay away. School and university holidays can present problems, but students most often choose the cheapest options.

The town fiesta – occurs on the first weekend of February, plus the Thursday and Friday before. People from all of the surrounding villages and towns come to enjoy this opportunity to mix and mingle. Vendors descend in their hundreds. The Fiesta usually opens with a cultural presentation, which always involves gonging and dancing. Games are played, plus the fabulous tug-of-war between men of different villages. Women usually get a chance in the open category. For those who enjoy the culture of the fiesta in the Philippines and don’t mind the crowds, this can be an interesting time in Sagada.

**Saturday Market- in the heart of town, popularly known in the Philippines as ‘poblacion’ you will find the weekly market. From the first light till about 10:00 am the local farmers, producers and vendors sell their fruits and vegetables fresh from the farm. Other foods come from the surrounding provinces. In citrus season the oranges are fabulous and over the Christmas months good tasting strawberries are abundant. The local honey which is sold in large bottles on a Saturday is magnificient- runny and aromatic from the flowers. Feel free to taste the various delicacies on offer. Other delicacies include sticky rice cakes cooked in oil with sugar and threaded in skewers, sesame balls, and banana cake, boiled peanuts. Most confections have sticky rice or camote (sweet potato) as their base.

Other Information

Curfew- Sagada has observed a 9:00pm curfew for decades. This is farming community and most people are up before dawn to go to fields, so closing down at 9:00pm makes a lot of sense. The stores close, the restaurants stop serving food and the street become quiet. The curfew is also a way of controlling public drunkenness- a problem in many other towns. People can do whatever they like within the wall of their homes and most restaurants will remain open until you leave a pressure you to do so. There is no proble about being out after 9:00 or past midnight. It is just very quiet. “Curfew” can conjure up all sorts of images and often tourists are troubled by it. There is little to worry about in this paradise.

Noisy Drunks- if your look like a group of people who want to make a lot of noise and drink soju, gin or anything else until the early hours of the morning, don’t be surprised if all of the accommodation is booked out, even in the low tourists season. You may even find that although you booked, there appears to be no record of the booking. People come to Sagada to enjoy the peace ant tranquility, so better choose a different destination than Sagada and try your luck there. To you this may be a tourist town but for 99% of the people living in Sagada, this is farming community.

Cell Phone Smart and Globe (also Smart Bro Wi-Fi)
Internet Café/Wi-Fi Internet café’s everywhere- typically P40 per hour- many café’s and guest houses have free or low cost Wi-Fi.
Electricity 24 hours- sometimes power is lost during typhoons and may be out for many days. Except Masferres, no backup power anywhere, even at the hospital.
Banks of money changes Only one small bank, the “Rural Bank of Sagada” – will change US$ but the rate will not be good. Best to do it in Manila or elsewhere. There is a lone MEGALINK automate teller machine inside the Rural Bank of Sagada with access during banking hours only- open Tuesday to Saturday. If dispenses a maximum of P5000 per transaction at a cost of P35 or P55. Note that it will not accept any foreign credit cards.
