I could never get enough of Sagada’s Kiltepan Peak and the amazing sunrise that welcomes you to a new day. Getting up early was no task at all despite the chilly temperature of the highlands that makes one want to just stay in bed with blanket wrapped around self like a very comfy cocoon. The weather that day promises to be kind to us, we were worried for the night before it was threatening to rain. And rain is bad news for those who wants to visit Kiltepan – there would be no great sunrise and no walking into the clouds, I mean figuratively of course lol
At 4am we were awake and waiting for Jake, our Saggas guide, to come knocking at our affordable inn in Sagada which is George Guest House. No coffee that early morn, bummer for a coffee addict like me 🙁 but that’s okay because we were also looking forward to having breakfast at Rock-Inn Farm and Cafe.
NO we didn’t walk to Kiltepan we rode a van, thank godness because I couldn’t imagine myself surviving walking for 30 minutes in the cold Sagada climate at that early hour, i’m sure even the early birds were still in their nest haha. We arrived in Kiltepan’s peak when it was still pitch dark, as in you can’t see anything! The van’s headlight & flashlights were put to good use! But it was good since we have ample time to wait for the famed amazing sunrise of Kiltepan Peak.

That’s Jake Saggas Guide – he was all wrapped-up too; it was really so cold and chilly that day.
Can I walk in the clouds? or fly?????
