I was analyzing the map of Sagada weeks before our trip, and I was convinced that every must see tourist spots are very near each other, I came to that conclusion because distance between famous spots are shorter than the distance between my stretched thumb and pinky fingers laid on the map.

After a mesmerizing morning at Kiltepan’s peak followed by a hearty meal at Rock-Inn Cafe & Farm, off we went to our Sagada spelunking adventure at Sumaguing Cave, one of the best Philippines Tourists Attractions!
