Sagada is an excellent place to visit not only because of the weather but the many activities and food one can eat. I was only able to do a handful of activities when I visited Sagada so I'll only be able to make a biased list of the things I did and the food I ate.
Top 3 Things to Do
Sagada is jam packed with things to do the moment I had free time to wander around I saw a list of activities that visitors can do. The list ranged from mountain hiking, trekking to falls, caving, food tripping, river rafting, and just plain old sight seeing. Here's a rundown of the things I did during my Sagada trip:
- Caving - The cave connection in Sagada was definitely the highlight of my adventure. Going through pitch black caves only lighted by a kerosene lamp will quench any adventure junky's thirst. The slippery rocks and the cliffs will keep you on the edge between life and death.
2. The View - Sagada has several breathtaking views of nature.
|The best view of them all the Kiltepan Peak sunrise|
3. Pongas Falls - Pongas offers great swimming and a fantastic view upon arrival and during the trek.
There are other fun and adventurous things to do in Sagada but here is my top three. Find what suits you and just immerse yourself in Sagada.
Top Places to Eat! Eat! Eat! in Sagada
The adventure in Sagada does not end at the exit of Sumaguing after the cave connection, for foodies there's plenty of restaurants and different kinds of food for an adventure of a different sort.
Lemon Pie House
The lemon pie in Sagada is scrumptious because it is not too sweet and not too bland either, it just hits the taste buds right. P25 for a slice and P180 for a box you can eat this delicious lemon pie.
I was not able to take pictures of the food but I can say that the food was good. The food cost somewhere between P120 to P1,000+++ for the Sagada Pinikpikan dish.
Log Cabin stands out from all of the other restaurants in Sagada because it is run by a Westerner (I forget the nationality but she sounded British based on her accent). The food is also pricier when we went, at P300-P400 per plate for the buffet dinner, but Log Cabin serves delicious main courses and dessert and the ambiance set the mood for a homey feast. The buffet is only available during Saturdays by reservation and only serves dinner.
