Hanging coffins of SagadaIf you are looking for something a little more relaxed then there are a few shorter treks around taking you to some of Sagada's most famous sights such as the Echo Valley Hanging Coffins and nearby Burial Cave. For the past century or so the local people have practiced placing coffins of the dead in the mouth of caves or even in the case of Echo Valley attached to the face of limestone cliffs.

Aside from the surrounding area, the town itself has much to offer including a showcase of local tribal photography at the aptly named Masferre Inn, a quaint local market and a number of good cafes and restaurants some of which have great views of the surrounding area.
