-           After 1 hour of conversation, we able to settle the cost and what to visit.
-         Then we go back to our room and take a shower, after that we went out to check the Lemon Pie House, we ordered lemon pie (your visit to Sagada is not complete if you will not try to taste their popular lemon pie). The taste is good and we also ordered egg pie which is better than lemon pie. (1 box of lemon pie is 180 pesos).

Dessert at Lemon Pie House

-         Then we walked and checked some souvenirs and the cheaper price but best quality. Then we checked-in in a bar (I forgot the name, they played reggae songs and with Bob Marley photos in their wall) to drink one bottle of San Miguel beer light. After that we went back to our rooms and take a rest for tomorrow tour in cave.

-         We ate first at Salt and Pepper resto (breakfast meal, 90 pesos) before we start our cave connection.

-         After our breakfast we went to SAGGAS office to meet our tours guide (Kuya Dalifer), we walked until we reach the Lumiang Cave, then we started our Spelunking adventure. Started at Lumiang Cave and ended to Sumaguing Cave. I must say, we survived the cave connection, inside the cave was amazing and must try again in our next visit. We are tired after the cave connection, but the tours must go on, heheheh. Then, we tried their own version of Halo-Halo (with strawberry and blueberry). Then we go back to our room. Before we start our afternoon tours, we ate first at Lemon Pie House for our lunch (we tried chicken meal, the taste is just good).

     Afternoon, we first visit Echo Valley, saw some tombs and hanging coffins. Then we walked back until we reached the Bokong Falls (water is cold and people started to dive). After that we went to Lake Danum (the place is very relaxing and you wanted to stay until sunset). Before we went back to our room, we visit the Pottery and we saw how they make a pot and take note they speak English when they explain how they create pot.
