Hanging Coffins – Sagada, Philippines

Location: Sagada, Philippines

Sagada was one of the most beautiful places I visited while in the Philippines. It did’t feel at all like I was on an island in the middle of the tropical Pacific Ocean. There were caves, pine trees, mountains – and the air was cool and fresh.

One of the ancient traditions was to hang coffins in the local caves and on the sides of cliff rock faces. I’ll admit that walking past these hanging coffins was a little eerie, but it was extremely interesting to witness.
