In the Mountain Province, Sagada, with a population of 11,000 as of 2015, offers a simple and serene lifestyle. The town boasts a year-round cool climate, making it a favored destination for local explorers. Beyond its climate appeal, Sagada provides experiences for history enthusiasts and adventurers alike.

You will get a glimpse into the culture and traditions of the Igorot tribes and explore the Sumaguing Cave, also known as the “Big Cave,” featuring vast chambers showcasing Igorot heritage.

From the Mountain Province, take a private vehicle to Ifugao Province, home to the famous rice terraces – a UNESCO World Heritage Site still utilized by locals for farming. Immerse yourself in the province’s rich culture and traditions, drawing thousands of tourists today.

Over the next two days, experience the best of the Ifugao rice terraces, including a sunset at the Batad Rice Terraces and a dawn view of the landscape. The first day involves a four-hour journey to Tappiya Falls and Batad Rice Terraces, with stops to visit traditional and modern Ifugao homes in Batad Village. On the second day, a three-hour climb to Bangaan Terraces offers a glimpse into an adorable community with preserved Ifugao homes. The Ifugaos’ dedication to their terraces, often called the eighth wonder of the world, reflects their hard work and commitment to their livelihood.

After lunch in Bangaan Village, a 45-minute jeepney ride takes you to Banaue. Here, you can shower and rest before taking a public bus back to Manila, concluding your unforgettable tour.
