I have never seen a hanging coffin up close in Sagada. Each time I plan to hike to the limestone cliffs where the coffins are suspended or to Lumiang Cave where some where piled, the weather was always against me, raining hard until I opt to relax and eat instead.
It has come to my attention that tourists will no longer be allowed to touch the coffins. Before, anybody can just go hike to these locations but they have to register first at the tourist information center. Now visitors are required to take a guide.
This is a welcome news, I believe, so these hanging coffins and other Sagada attractions can be preserved. Especially with the increase in the number of visitors that Sagada has experienced for the past two years, protecting these relics and sites has never been this important.
