It's an old spot in sagada. You need to hike a bit. You might be needed to hire a guide if you're not good at finding destination. Carry water ;)

Sagada Hanging Coffins offers a fascinating glimpse to ancient times. This place are picture-perfect site more impressive than any horror movies. Local tour guides assure visitors that the position of the coffins signify how much loved ones cared for the deceased. A must-try to visit in Sagada Province.

I've heard so much about these hanging coffins years ago. I am glad that it was the same and locals were able to preserve it. I was able to see another set of hanging coffins in a higher elevation in our eco trail walking tour

Great experience.. walking the trail could be tiring but it's worth it. I admire how the locals preserved their culture and at the same time adapt with the progression.

Seeing the hanging coffins made me realize how the natives respected their culture of hanging the coffins as a sense of tradition and culture. It is historically significant for the Sagada people, because it was their way of life.

Second time to visit the place since I promised I will return. The surroundings provide a feast for the eye especially those who love nature and the local culture. People are warm and welcoming. This is a place that is really close to my heart. Gargar Dominicus Dominicus Allianz

Don't know why you have to pay so much for a guide who is supposed to "guide" you on an easy single path in order to show you some coffins in the air.
