Information about Echo Valley
Close to the Sagada’s main road is the Echo Valley, a well-known attraction with a scenery that includes sharp cliffs with dangling coffins attached to one edge.
The cemetery's trails were a testament to how popular this place is for tourists, with the red trail against a sea of green. The ground is covered with pine needles. The sight was a wonder in itself – with the deep valley and limestone cliffs rising from the ground.
The main highlight of a tour in Echo Valley is you can shout and it will echo, hence the attraction’s titular name. You can throw rocks at the hill and it will bounce back. However, locals recommend to keep the place quiet as a sign of respect to the dead and enjoy the scenery instead.
How to get there
To go to Echo Valley, pass the San Mario Cathedral, which is the church founded by American Anglicans who arrived in the early part of the last century in Sagada. It will be a 15-20 minute walk from the top to the hanging coffins. Afterwards, you will reach the top of the Echo Valley.
Best time to visit
It is best to visit the attraction during the warm season, from November to April.
There is a minimal fee and environmental fee to this attraction. It is highly recommended to join a guided tour that will also take you to other attractions in Sagada.
