“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.” ― John Muir
For the last post of the 7-day Nature Photo Challenge, I am definitely saving the best for last. I didn’t even know I could step here sooner than I originally intended to. First, I was planning to to come here with the love of my life, but it seemed to have given me the opportunity when we are away from each other. There is always the next time, right?
Called the “Shangri-la of the Philippines”, the town of Sagada in the Mt. Province is full of wonders. It has something so uniquely explainable that made me fall in love with almost anything here. The serenity, scenery, people, and culture are just the obvious reasons, as it’s rusty idyllic atmosphere is something worth the travel.
Famous for its hanging coffins, something considered to be the most iconic attraction around this area of Northern Luzon. Being buried in this hanging coffins require the price on an untarnished honor when one was still living. This is something not for everyone, right? If not raised high on the cliffs, one is buried in a cave.
This is also the place where one could literally experience the meeting of the elements of nature city dwellers can only dream of. The clouds, the misty weather and the smell of the fresh scents from trees are a fulfillment! Walking under the shades of the trees are too priceless to miss.
Of course, how can I forget to mention Sagada’s most popular “must experience” scene. An early morning drive or hike to Kiltepan’s Viewpoint to see the mighty sun emerge from the sea of clouds is magical! For me this is literally being “close enough to heaven”.
Yep, the clouds are just so beautiful wherever you look around in Sagada. ❤
Here are the other sights to behold in this beautiful place! I can’t wait to be back here! ❤
