Sagada Day 1: Tips on How to Conquer Sumaguing Cave + Hanging Coffins

Better late than never ever! Wahehe. Finally found the time to blog about our EPIC once in a lifetime (or in Ana's case, twice in a lifetime haha) experience inside Sagada's most famous tourist attraction, SUMAGUING Cave!:) I've read lots of posts about it and heard a hundred stories, but I'd say no amount of blog posts or stories could ever fully describe or define the death defying experience one goes through inside. Haha. This happened during our 1st day in Sagada. I had no sleep (wasn't able to sleep in the van) and I had very little energy, so mega super effort talaga ako sa caving adventure. Here are photos!

 1.Prepare proper caving or spelunking attire.
I know we might not be wearing what's "proper" but hey, it still worked for us! Haha! But for serious, one should prepare quick drying clothes and aqua shoes maybe? Wearing leggings/thick tights was also a wise decision on our part! Woot. Thank you Cebu Stylista for this fab Hello Kitty shirt! Hehe.

on our way to Strawberry Cafe!

2. Eat a hearty breakfast!
We're a suki of STRAWBERRY CAFE!

they grow and serve fresh strawberries. P100 per bowl! 

affordable meals

and fast service! food's great too:)

contrary to popular belief, they serve the BEST yogurt in town!

fresh strawberries + yogurt = ang healthy much namin! haha

3. Game Face On! And listen sa briefing. Hehe.

4. If unsure, CROUCH, SIT and SLIDE!!!
 slippery when wet hehe

5. Stay with your group and guides!

6. Don't be shy to ask for help or a hand

7. Enjoy & Appreciate!
 8. Trust your guides. They know best!

9. Use your imagination and arm yourself with a good sense of humor. Lol.
hoong bastuuus

chocolate gelatin! hihi

can you see the doggie?

10. Be ready to get wet, do some stiff neck inducing crawling and death defying rope action!
nagmomodel pa ng Meister watch! haha.

11. I hope you're not afraid of the dark!

12. Don't forget to smile and pose! Haha. You can bring a small camera lang and hand it to your guide coz they'll know what to do and they document well! Haha.

13. And last but not the least... YOLO!!!

14. It's best to rest for an hour before visiting the hanging coffins. Suicide if you do it immediately after! Lols.
scary shiiiit hehe but surreal. their dead are brought here after days of mourning. they are placed in mini mini coffins in fetus position.

It's a wrap! hahaha.
