Getting from Kabayan to Sagada Jul 11, 2008
If you look at a map of this area it looks like it is gonna be a piece of cake to go from Kabayan to Sagada. But in reality it is a lot more difficult.
You can get there in three different ways.
Walking to the main road via Timbac cava
Renting a private jepney to go to Abatan
Taking the bus to Baguio and change bus to go to Sagada
Walking to the main road
This is probably the most interesting route you can choose because it will take you pass the Timbac cave which apparently is the most interesting of all the caves containing mummies in the area around Kabayan. It is not too expensive if you can share between 3-5 people.
But it is not an easy route it will be a long hike up hill for most parts. And you will be carrying your own luggage unless you get a porter. But if you start renting porters the prices will go up quite a lot. Hence this route should only be undertaken by the really fit people and not the traditional couch potato.
One more problem during the rainy season is you are likely to see rain on your route which can make it very unpleasant to have a 7 hours long hike.
Renting a private jepney
This is the fastest but also the most expensive way to go. The going rate of renting a jepney seems to be about 3.500 peso. And that is if you can find someone to take you there. If you can get a group together this is an option that will cut down a lot of travel time for you though.
Taking the bus to Baguio
If you are not super fit or got too much cash your most like route will be with the local bus to Baguio. You generally need to leave early to get to Baguio in time to catch a bus around noon. Hence you should be on the 7 o’clock bus so you can get a lunchtime bus going north to Sagada This way you can get to Sagada in time for dinner and have all of the next day there.
