Sagada Adventure

Dapat maximize namin ang pag-tour sa Sagada, Mt. Province kaso nagkaroon ng hindi inaasahan na pangyayari kaya tatlong araw kami sa Baguio City. Pero ok lang at least naikot din naman namin ang lugar.
Day 5: April 20, 2010 (Tuesday)
4:30 ng umaga kami nag-checkout sa hotel na tinutuluyan namin. Alas singko umalis ang bus na pa-akyat going to Sagada. Dahil kaming tatlo ay gustong nasa bandang bintana kaya hindi kami magkakatabi ng mga kasama ko.
Habang nasa bus ay panay ang kuha namin ng mga larawan. Haayyysss! ang lamig sobra at ang ganda ng mga view na makikita mo.

Grabe! ang galing talaga ng pagkagawa ni God sa mga nature. Ang ganda talaga lalo ng 'pag nasa itaas ka na nang bundok.


Pasado alas dose na kami nakarating sa Sagada. Nag-check in muna sa Inn at naglunch and plan for the activities sa araw na ito. After lunch, we visited Sagada Municipal to registered sa Sumaging Cave.
Overview:
Sumaging Cave is probably one of the most popular caves in Sagada. Aptly nicknamed as the Big Cave, was created by water erosion. Almost every year, thousands of visitors would trail down to see the magnificent and unorthodox display of stalactites and stalagmites. Historically, the cave also served as hiding place of Filipino soldiers and Guerillas during World War II. Prior to the War, this was also a habitat and eventually also became burial grounds for the Indigenous People of the Cordillera.

During your visit, expect to have a guide. They will show you the different forms of the cave rocks where they give names such as "pig pens", "pregnant woman", "frog pool", "elephant formation", etc. Moving farther, you can go down the steep rocks barefoot because the rocks are flat and rough enough.







A known landmark at the center of Sagada is the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, a vibrant Episcopal parish.The municipality of Sagada has become the only Philippine town that is predominantly Protestant with almost 95% baptized into the Episcopal Church.

Day 6: April 21, 2010 (Wednesday)
Pagkatapos ng almusal namin at derecho agad kami sa falls. Hindi nga lang malaki dahil ayon nila... sarado daw ngayon ang big falls.


Hindi ko ito palalagpasin kaya ayon, naligo na ako sa falls at dahil hindi naman marunong lumangoy mga kasama ko. Hays! mag-isa lang ako naligo. Lagpas sa tao ang lalim ng mini falls na ito. Una, natatakot ako dahil wala nga akong kasama pero lumangoy ako saglit. hehehe!Pagkatapos namin sa mini falls ay dumaan kami sa Sagada Weaving.
