So we went to Sagada last March.
March 19 at 10:00pm
We leave Manila going to Baguio and arrived at 04:00am. Masyado kaming maaga para sa first trip to Sagada kaya kape kape, tambay at konting landian muna sa isang 24-hours na restaurant just beside the GL Transit station.
March 20 at 06:00am
The bus leaves Baguio to Sagada. 5 hours na nakakahilong byahe dahil sa never ending na zigzag ng Halsema Highway.
We arrived in Sagada. Nag-register sa Municipal Tourist Center then check-in sa Sagada Guesthouse.
Kumain kami ng lunch sa Youghurt House.
We started caving. Una kaming nagpunta sa Lumiang/Burial Cave. At the entrance of the cave are piles of coffins. Hindi na kami pumasok sa loob. Pilit kaming kino-convince ni kuyang tour guide na i-try ang cave connection which would start at Lumiang Cave. It would take 4-5 hours of rock climbing and crawling and would end in Sumaguing Cave. We felt were not yet ready for that so we headed to Sumaguing Cave via the simplest route.
Ang akala ko simpleng papasok lang kami sa cave. Well it's way different from the caves I've been to. It's one and a half to two hours crawling. It's kinda buwis buhay, oh it's really buwis buhay. May times na takot talaga ako baka bigla ako madulas. Medyo may kalalakagyan ako kung nagkataon. Pero yung tour guide namen at iba pang tour guides, wala silang takot sa katawan. Rocks are steep and slippery.

For me, the kind of adventures that of Sumaguing cave is the kind that I want to experience once in my lifetime and would be enough.
May nakuha nga pala akong souvenir sa cave.

After a tiring cave adventure we headed back to the guesthouse to freshen up and rest a bit before dinner.
We ate dinner in Lemon Pie House. We had lemon pie for dessert and it was good. Before our food was served the lights went out but came back few minutes later.
We headed back to our guesthouse and fell asleep immediately. It was a tiring but a dauntless day.
