Hello, lovely! Last April, I went in Sagada, Mountain Province with my co-employees as our company's summer outing and team building. As we went up in Sagada, we've seen the beauty of the famous Banaue Rice Terraces. We also went in Baguio. Here are some of the montages. Hope y'all enjoy it.
I've been fascinated by Mountain Province even before the hit film, That Thing Called Tadhana, made one of its municipalities, Sagada, a word-of-mouth for people of all ages. Some friends, either travelers or not, have already experienced the said Cordillera province and the common thing that they tell me about the place is that it's beautiful, more so when it wasn't yet bombarded with people. Anyhow, I'm still excited about going here especially that I was also planning to visit the beautiful terraces of Maligcong that is found in the capital municipality of Mountain Province, Bontoc. Despite ...
Welcome to TheJedSetter!
Our first featured destination - SAGADA.
Sagada is a town in the Cordillera Mountains, within the Philippines' Mountain Province. The place is known for its cold weather, quaint little city, caves for spelunking, and great food and coffee.
This video will show you how I saw the beautiful Sagada through my lens. Every time I close and re-open my eyes, it offers a new sight and a new experience. I'll be back for sure.
Sagada is a far away travel destination. It nestled in the mountain province. Long before the movie " That Thing Called Tadhana", which contributed to much of its fame today, I have been planning to see this place. I have learned about Sagada with my super travel friends in the year 2011.
Oh yes! I waited that long before I was able to visit Sagada. Three years ago, I initiated the plan for our Sagada experience. We already have itineraries, to-do-list , where to eat and etc. I planned this with my girl friends. But due to work constraints, I, the leader of the Sagada tour was not able ...
Almost 8 months of waiting and preparing for this trip to happen, my college friends and I had successfully made our first out-of-Cebu trip together. I personally don't have any idea of what places Sagada can offer since the initial plan was Ilocos. All I know is that we would be traveling to north of Luzon for more or less 12 hours. I am not used to that. I even puked 4 times during the travel.
I actually browsed the itinerary just the day before the trip so I know what to pack and what not to bring. I never expected that this would turn out to be the most tiresome yet most amazing trip I ...
The second day of our Sagada trip was the most action-packed and exhausting. We drove and walked from end to end armed with lots of water, snacks, and tibay ng loob. Lol. We rose up early and headed to Bomod-ok Falls. We drove for about an hour and even got delayed along the way because of a minor landslide the night before.
Our tour guide gave us trek poles and briefed us before we started. She said that it was only a short trek (approximately 2 kilometers downhill and into the waterfalls and two kilometers back. Whatevs! We should have warmed up because that was already taxing for us. Lol ...
