Sagada, Mountain Province Packages

Sagada is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the Philippines especially for those who love trekking, spelunking, rappelling, and rock climbing. Its mountainous regions are perfect for these kinds of activities, but this is not all that Sagada has to offer.

This is also a serene and solemn place that one can go to when the stresses at work and the frustrations of city life seem too much.

Sagada, Mountain Province, Philippines

Location

Sagada is a 5th class municipality of Mountain Province. Located 275 kilometers north of Manila, and is approximately a 12- to 14-hour drive from there. It is 140 kilometers from Baguio and is located right next to the provincial capital of Bontoc.

Climate

The Mountain Province’s climate is definitely cold because of its high location. Crops that thrive only in cold climates can be found here such as cabbages, tomatoes, green pepper, potatoes, carrots, beans and other fruits and vegetables. These crops are exported to other areas, as well as Metro Manila. Tourists and guests should be aware of its cool climate and should bring jackets or warmers to protect against the cold.

The people of Sagada are called Igorot, which is derived from the word golot meaning “mountain.” They were the only Filipinos who weren’t influenced by Spanish or American invaders. It is also interesting to note that Sagada is the only town in the Philippines that is predominantly Protestant. Their love for independence still remains today and is not easily erased by modernity. Theirs is a wealthy culture that all Filipinos should be proud of.

Best Times to Go

The best time to visit Sagada is during the dry months of December to May, so as not to make trekking difficult. However, climate in Sagada is very cold all year round, more so during the rainy season, so guests must not forget to bring a jacket to keep themselves warm.
