Unang beses ko lang pumunta sa Sagada! Gusto ko na bumalik!!
It’s definitely one place you should visit before you die! hahaha!
While the 12 hour trip (split into two six-hour bus rides) left me wanting to create a luxury bus complete with i-pads and other gadgets to make the trip more comfortable, I was able to use that time looking out the window and/or sleeping. [Take the 11pm Victory Liner Bus Trip to Baguio, then take a cab to Dangwa Station so that you can catch the first bus to Sagada which leaves at 630am] Saktong mga after lunch ang dating niyo sa sagada kung ganun!
Highlight of the trip would be the tours. Saktong feeling Frodo lang ako after caving for 4-hours. Buti na lang steady lang ang aming tour guide. Hahahaha!
Getting to Bomod-ok Falls was almost as hard as getting to the other side of the cave. Mga 1 hour ata kami naglakad though the Sagada Rice Terraces (see picture below) just to get to the falls. Pero sobrang worth it naman.
Me: “Kuya eto ba ang banawe rice terraces?”
Kuya ticker: “Nasa Sagada tayo. Haha.”
Me: “Onga naman. Pwede na yan. Di na malalaman ng iba pag pinicturan ko. haha!”
Food? Pwede na. Medyo mahal yung iba so challenge maghanap ng mura. Meron sa basement nung town center at yung Kimchi Resto. But If you’re there on a saturday, may evening buffet courtesy of a french chef sa Log Cabin for only 390 pesos. Sulit.
I don’t know what else to say except that I want to go back.
Budget wise, 4,000 pesos would be enough for transpo, food, lodging, the caving tour and the bomod-ok falls tour and a few small souvenirs for 2 nights in sagada. If you’re planning to buy other stuff, bring a little extra. Walang ATM dun. At least when I was there. Hahaha!
Okay game balik na tayo! Yey!
