It's a cliff hanger

It was just a little walk to get to a viewing area through some pine woods just outside of Sagada. The coffins are on the other side of a ravine that you can trek to if you like steep decent/ascent hiking. My GF and I did not take the walk..not correct shoes. You have to look as wonder why this...

this a must see visit for me because of the tradition and belief behind it is so interesting, you have to see it for yourself. Ask your tour guide to tell you about it. I won't spoil it for you.. For whom the chair is for.. How you know who is dead when ayou visit and Pay respect to the... More

You'll cross a classical cemetery on the way which should help you get in the mood and a short walk after that you'll see these pretty surprising hanging coffins either fixed directly on the cliffs or put in holes and caves. Superb natural environment as well. Well worth a look. Our guide told us his parents were there and he... More

Place was very accessible, recommended for all ages even for able-bodied grannies. In the rainy season the road is slippery, wet and muddy. Bring drinking water with you but drink moderately. Bring an umbrella, rain or shine, or parka to free your hands. Place is sacred to the Igorots so please make sure to show respect. The coffins were hung... More

We only saw these from a distance but it was interesting to see how some people were buried (so to speak) There are a few coffins that just hang under a cluff edge where they are mostly protected from the weather. Like i say very different and intersting. Worth a visit to experience local custom.

This is one of the place I'm so excited about when I visited Sagada last week. The hanging coffins of Sagada was part of the eco tour and you can enjoy it just for 100-200php per head. You have to treak 15-20 minutes to see these coffins & I suggest you listen to your tour guide re this tradition so... More

As a nature lover, i really appreciate the place. Fortunately, we visited at a non peak visiting month therefore avoiding too much people to be with. Long walk is needed to this activity as to round the places where the coffins were set.

Activity - not for very old people/ very young either. Will trek for much longer distance and will go up and down thru steep pavements. View - great! Will be enriching to see the stunning nature and cave-formations of Sagada and its hanging coffins, and some are just on top of a mountain. Great for picture taking! Price - it... More

We visited sagada in mid October. The hanging coffins was one of the things we really wanted to see. Unfortunately it was not possible to go to the coffins without a guide and it we couldn't spend 600 peso just to have a guide. It should be something you chose for yourself if you want a guide, but here you... More
