Sweat It Out In Sagada.

Famously known for their hanging coffins (an old traditional way of burying the dead,) Sagada is located in Mountain Province, Philippines – ergo, it is a town of numerous mountains consisting of 19 barangays. Nestled in the remote 275 km. north of Manila, the town proper itself is secluded by pine trees. Sagada is definitely a place for the adventurer; one needs to be ready to, at least, take a long walk once you’re there. You just have to sweat it out to experience the essence of this marvelous place. Among the many activities you can find here are trekking, spelunking and nature hikes.
