Travel: Going to Sagada From Baguio by Benj

Filed under: Travel

Sagada is about 400 kilometers north of the Philippine capital of Manila. It is in the middle of the Luzon landmass and is nestled in a valley along the Cordillera Mountain Range. There are two major routes to Sagada – one on the western and more developed side via Baguio City and the other along the east via Banaue.

Manila to Baguio

Victory Liner is the bus line of choice to Baguio City. The company offers almost eighty trips a day from its five bus stations in Metro Manila. The two biggest stations are the ones in Pasay (convenient for those in the Pasay-Manila-Makati area) and Cubao (convenient for those from Quezon City). A bus leaves every hour on the hour. You can call 02-833-5019 to 20 (Pasay) and 02-727-4534 (Cubao) for ticket inquiries and reservations. Unless its peak season (April – May), it’s very likely that you won’t need a reservation. You may simply go to the station and buy the tickets there for the next bus.

Price: 460 Php ~12 USD (as of 2015)
Schedule: Every hour
Duration: 6-8 hours. If you leave Manila late at night (around 10 PM, you can arrive in Baguio before 5 AM). Traffic jams in Manila and other cities along the way can dramatically change your time of arrival.
Stops: The bus stops twice at provincial stations for restroom breaks. The stations also have concessionaire stands for light snacks and drinks.


  • To maximize your time, leave Manila during late night. This allows you to evade the heavy rush hour traffic and ensures that you’ll get the first trip out of Baguio to Sagada.
  • Instead of buying food and drinks from the concessionaires, stock up on snacks before boarding the bus. The prices are a bit jacked up so you’ll end up saving more if you come prepared.
  • The Victory Bus from Manila to Baguio are notorious for having very cold internal temperatures. Make sure your sweaters are easily accessible in case you get cold.

From Baguio To Sagada

Upon arriving at Baguio, you may take a cab to the Dangwa Bus Station. The cab fare will cost about 40-50 Php (~1+ USD). Locate the Lizardo Transit station – facing the station, it’s on the LEFT side. They have a small ticket booth where you could buy tickets minutes before the bus leaves. The first trip

Price: 220 Php ~ 5.50 USD (as of 2015)
Schedule: First bus leaves at 630AM. The last bus leaves at 1 PM.
Trip Duration: 6-7 hours
Stops: The bus makes two stops (one in Atok and the second one in Bauko). There are restrooms and food stalls in the vicinity as well.

SAGADA – BAGUIO (for the way back)

Schedule: First bus leaves at 5 AM. Last bus leaves at 1 PM. One bus every hour, on the hours.


  • Be prepared. Take medication for motion sickness if necessary.
  • The buses are not air-conditioned and even if the region is known for cold weather, the sun could prove to be quite an adversary at mid-day. Don’t forget to apply sunblock.
  • the bus conductor will honor student and senior citizen’s discounts! Have your IDs ready for 20% off the ticket cost. :)

Hi jB Cionelo, thanks for droppin’ by our site. There is no direct Manila-Sagada bus. Yes there is Manila-Bontoc-Sagada, but it is still two rides (Manila to Bontoc via bus and Bontoc-Sagada via jeep) see latest entry by Benj, Travel:Going to Sagada From Bontoc. Almost the same travel time.

Comment by Angel

kaya ba ng innova yung road from baguio-sagada- banaue drive

Comment by mai

Hi mai, there are rough roads going to Sagada and Banaue, so “I” (personally) do not suggest driving your Innova.

Comment by Angel

what’s time is the last trip of the bus from sagada going to baguio? :) thanks!

Comment by Jools

1 pm. :)

Comment by Benj


We are planning to take a side trip in Sagada 1st week of May after our convention in Baguio. Is there a route from Sagada to Mla without going back to Baguio again? And how many hours is the travel time? thanks

Comment by Ching


Via Bontoc/Banaue. The trip will be around 10-11 hours. That’s still roughly the same amount of time you’ll need to go down via the other side. I emailed you. :)

Comment by Benj

Thanks Benj! I got the mail already. In that case, we will do as advised.

Thanks to this site! It’s a great help. We look forward for the upcoming Sagada adventure especially the cave exploration. The photos are very inviting. At least, we will be able to touch (i suppose!) the stalactites and stalagmites unlike in the underground river in Palawan that we can only look at them. In fairness though, the underground river is a breathtaking site!

Comment by Ching

If you want to check out the Banaue Rice Terraces, you could opt to take the other route. :)

Comment by Benj

hi! im dyenn…my friends and i are planning to visit sagada dis 3rd wk of april..but we’re kind of short of you mind suggesting accomodotion that is cheaper than php200/day/head?thanks a lot…

This site has been very helpful. my friends and i are going to sagada this may. can’t wait!!! thanks.-jan

Comment by jannice

how much ang total na magagastos pag punta sagada from manila at balikan??? kasama na ung accomodation at fare at fud?? mga magno roughly?

Comment by rodee

Transportation – 1200/head
accommodation – 200/head/night
Food – 100-150/meal; or just bring your own stocks.
Tours – very variable. Please read the other parts of this site. Most often, you will find the answers there

3500 is a doable amount. Just bring canned food and cook it at the hotel.

Comment by Benj

Hi Benj!

Yes, we’ve decided to take the Banaue/Bontoc route going back to Manila so we could have a glimpse of the Banaue Rice Terraces. We believe the site would be worth the rough and long travel. :)

Is it ok to go to Sagada this month of June or July? It’s rainy season na kasi, hindi ba delikado ang byahe dun. We’re planning kasi to go there end of this month.

Comment by anna

Hi! My friend and I are planning to go to Sagada this end of June. Okay ba ang byahe pag ganitong tag-ulan?

Comment by anna

Considering that both routes to Sagada have almost the same travel time, my question is, which one is the safest? By safe I mean, wider roads, less prone to falling off a cliff.

Comment by Brenda

Considering that both routes to Sagada have almost the same travel time, my question would be, which one is the safest? By safe I mean wider roads, lesser chance for the bus or jeep to fall off a cliff.

Comment by Brenda

Also, which route has the best view?

Comment by Brenda

Hi Brenda, best view would be Banawe/Bontoc. Same road condition for any route.

Comment by Angel

Anna, as long as there is no typhoon affecting the region, Sagada trip is a go.

How many days do we stay in sagada to see its beauty? 2-3 days enough? Mavi

Comment by mavi rondaris

Lizzy, Yes.
If you read the article, it actually says that there are 7 trips a day.

Mavi, figure in the amount of time it takes to get to Sagada. :) 24 hours will be your travel time To-and-from Sagada. The schedule of buses also means that your “last” day in Sagada can’t extend to past 1PM. Your first day also can’t start earlier than 11AM if you’re going via Baguio.
With that schedule, YOU WILL ONLY HAVE 1 full day in Sagada. Gets?

Comment by Benj

Im planning to go Sagada with my family this holy week. My dad really prefers to go with our own transpo but I read in one of the comments here that it’s not advisable to do that? We attempted to go Sagada from banaue 2 years ago but we had to turn back midway because there was a landslide. The roads then were ok for a revo. No improvement since then?

In any case, if we take the bauio route, is there parking in the Dangwa Bus Station or any nearby parking lot we can leave our car? Also, would you have the contact number of Lizardo Transit? I can’t find them on the web, we would like to book the tickets in advance.

Kindly email me your feedback, really appreciate this. Thanks so much for your help! I’m sure you’re a blessing for a lot of first timers like our family :)

Comment by Raine Romero

Heard that the road from Baguio to Sagada has greatly improved. We used both routes mid of last year, the road from Banuae – Sagada was much bumpier and at one point, the road was almost completely washed out.

Not to say that the road from Sagada to Baguio wasn’t heart-stopping either, but you will manage to drive parts of the way on very good road as compared to the other wherein it’s just ONE BIG bumpy ride.

You also get to passby the highest point in Luzon (via Baguio-Sagada), so I guess it’s worth the long travel. One can see rice terraces littered along the way from from Sagada to Baguio.

Comment by glue

What’s the status of the road from Baguio to Sagada? Will an ordinary sedan endure the roads? Im planning to go there sometime this March.

Thanks a lot

I want to see the rice terraces, of course. Please help me. THis is also my first time going to Sagada that’s why I want this to be memorable.

Can you also help me look for a good hotel/apartelle for accommodation? I’ve read that there’s a 200/night/head accommodation there. Aren’t there any increase so far? We also have a tight budget.

Comment by red

Hi. My wife and I and kids are set to go to Sagada via Baguio from May 18-21 and we’ll stay at the Rock Inn. We prefer to take our Starex van for the trip, encouraged by third party inputs that the van will endure the trip and that the roads from Baguio to Sagada are very much well-paved/maintained (about 90% daw). Since this is the first time we’re doing this, I’d appreciate if you could just help me out with the following:
1 – What road/s do I take from Baguio to Sagada? Are there guideposts/signs along the way?
2 – Our daughters are aged 15, 10 and 5. Would it be safe for the younger ones to take the treks, cave visits, etc.?
Hope to hear from you soon.
By the way, your site is so informative and friendly. In fact, it’s the only site I’ve ventured into to attempt to post my queries as I found you guys accommodating and well-informed and updated. More power and God bless.

Comment by Mike

There are still pretty rough spots, Im afraid. I wouldn’t say 90% – more like 80% (i.e. only one hour is rough driving out of the six hours from Baguio). I wouldnt be too confident driving a car like a Civic in those roads. I havent seen a car of that model on the road ever since I went to Sagada. Cheers.

You take care ok. This website is one of the best that I have encountered.

hi I’m planning to go to baguio then sagada this feb. could someone give me idea kung ano ang mas okay. morning alis ko manila.. ano mas okay na option? may bus ba na direct ang trip going to sagada.

Comment by arnold

Manila to Baguio is 440 (victory Pasay) less than ten pesos i think if you will come from cubao which is closer…plus pay 5.00 for insurance which is optional…i go home to baguio regularly…

Sagada is one of the best place to go for a vacation. Tita mary’s residential lodge is a perfect place to stay. then pag nagutom may mga kainan sa market instead of going sa mga restaurant na exensive. Tita mary Your the best. babalik ako ulit jan… thanks. God Bless!!!

Comment by Arnold Pagaran

Hi. Same question as Macky,(135)is the road to Sagada still rough for small/medium size vehicle? i will be travelling with my family, and we want to bring our car so we can stop whenever we want. Thanks in advance for the reply.

Comment by breyniak

Great site, so informative. Same question as #135, my family and i are planning to bring my car a Toyota Innova in going up to sagada. is the road going to sagada now passable? is it safe to bring a car? if not, where is the best place to park my car in baguio?
thank you very much in answering back. God bless.

Comment by nilo

Comment by pat

How are the roads to sagada from baguio in July? Is it alright to drive? How long should one stay to enjoy the sights?

Please email me directly. thanks.

Comment by alma

Hi, my husband’s only wish when we visit Philippines this December is to see Sagada. But reading thru the blogs, even with the new freeway, it would take us about 11 hours to get there. Is this right? With my girls on tow, I do not want their trip to be so rough and tiring and we only have Dec. 29-31 as our free days. Please let me know a more realistic travel time (hopefully shorter) if we drive via Baguio.

Kudos to your site! Very informative…Thanks. Monette

Comment by Monette

We will be visiting sagada soon to shoot for a TV special. We plan to take the baguio sagada route…but we intend to bring a vehicle because of our host and equipment…will that be ok? Will there be guides to help us out with the places to go to in Sagada? hey thanks for your site…it’s a big help.


Comment by jovie

Hi! tnx for a VERY informative blog on Sagada. my friends and I are planning to go back to Manila from Sagada by taking the Sagada-Bontoc-Manila route. Based on your reply June 2009 you dont advise it because of the road constructions. Are the roads ok by now? Would you still advice us to take that route home?
Tns alot!

Comment by cdv

Be wary about making reservations for a 12 midnight departure at Victory Cubao. We all know that 12:00 a.m. is the start of a new day. For them, w/c is customary, 12:01 a.m. is the start of a new day. So if you made reservations for May 30, midnight, for them it means May 31, midnight – a full 24 hour difference. So you either go back to the station 24 hrs later or take a chance passenger arrangement – w/c means, additional fee. It happened to me and my friends a few years back. I’m not sure if they have changed their concept about time.

Comment by cristy

my group is going to sagada on august. we are passing thru baguio but will proceed to manila without passing bagiuo on our way back. is this possible? we will be using public transpo, bus… will we be encountering landslides if it rain?

Comment by roy

Hi Benj and Angel,

I’m planning a backpacking long weekend to sagada alone. I took note of the Transpo expenses and the lodges availbale when I get to sagada.

I’m planning to climb mt. pulag from sagada/marlboro country and back. and also tour some of the sites sagada offers.

My question is, how much would a guide cost (to sagada tourist spots / sagada to mt. pulag)? and also, from the drop off (municipal hall) are the lodges walking distance already and easy to find?

Looking forward to your kind response, this website has been very helpful! More power to you guys! Thanks!

You can reach me through:
mobile: 09166444475

Comment by Bootbut

My boyfriend and I wants to try something refreshing and different so I thought of Sagada. I just want to ask if it is safe to go there even if its just the two of us. Some friends went there in a large number of groups and I’m afraid it won’t go so well if its just me and him because Sagada is not for romantic getaways, right? But we really wanted to go there. I’ll be glad to hear it from you soon. Thanks a lot!

Comment by charmaine

hello.. Just want to ask if there are changes sa rates of lodges in SAGADA as of the moment because we are planning to visit the place by mid-October. thank you very much:)

Hi, My family is planning a self drive trip to Sagada first week of April. Is this doable with a toyota van and do we have to hire a driver who’s experienced with the roads up there? We’ve never driven there before. We would be 5 adults travelling with children 13 & 9 yrs old. What would be the best route to take in your opinion and how do we insure seeing the rice terraces? We may stay 7-10 days. Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My brother who resides in Sydney arrived here last Friday (Nov.23) for a 23-day vacation here, he asked me if I could arrange a trip to Baguio-Sagada-Baguio wih overnight on each leg and on dates between Dec. 6-15 2012 on this trip will be my brother, a nephew and me, could you help me on this. During our stay in Baguio what we need is just to be booked in an averate rate hotel and in Sagada we will welcome tour offers speecifically if it will offer the rice terraces view and visit. Could you help me with these?

Hello…My husband and I are planning to visit Sagada and banaue. I’m from Capas, Tarlac. I’d rather take the public bus, but which route is closer, manila-bontoc-sagada or Baguio-Bontoc-Sagada? I don’t mind going to manila to catch the bus if it’s closer there rather than Baguio-Banaue-Sagada route (I have a place in Baguio BTW). Can you suggest a descent place to check-in with tour guide? Thanks so much.

Hello… I am planning to visit Sagada this May 2013 with my wife and 2 kids (boys 11 and 7 years old). Is it advisable that we bring our kids to Sagada? Will they be able and permitted to go to the Caves and Waterfalls etc.,or is it only for adults? Is it also dangerous trek?

For the trip if we bring an SUV which roads is recommended for going to Sagada? which road is better for traveling?

Thanks and hope to hear your advice soon.

You know what the options are, but how do you know which one
is right for your child. Many have not received increases of any kind and are unlikely to for some years to come.

Children who learn their ABCs and 123s during their formative years tend
to be better in academics.

We just recently made a trip to Sagada via the Baguio this week (March 15 to March 19, 2014)

We took the bus.
Bus – Lizardo Transit station – 6 AM
Trip Duration: 6-7 hours
Improvements have been made to the condition of the road going to Sagada. Its already cemented. Only a small portion of the road is rough. An average of 30 meters long. I counted at least 2 instances along the road that is still rough as you near the town of Sagada.

The thrill begins once you start your journey. Its zigzag (left, right, left, right….) and up/down all the way. So if you are the person who get’s dizzy in a moving vehicle, I suggest you take Bonamine or equivalent medicine. Otherwise, bring a small plastic bag along the way.

If you are taking the bus and you enjoy looking at the mountains, green scenery, rice terraces and specially the deep gorges/deep cliff below, I suggest you sit at the right side of the bus – window side. You can take a good view and capture pictures as you go along.

My only comment if you will bring your own car is that make sure its road worthy and in excellent condition. Make sure your brakes are working perfectly. Never compromise safety. There are a lot of uphill and hairpin turns. A 4×4 would do nicely.

I noticed that diesel fuel stations are more common than gas fuel stations. There is Petron station situated approximately half way of the journey that serve gas and diesel. Please correct me if I am wrong. For gas vehicles, be sure you have enough fuel from Baguio to Sagada and back if you have big fuel capacity. You may need to check the distance and gas stations and study if feasible for your car type.

In case you will be the one driving, make sure you are well rested and ready for the challenge of driving safely along the snaking road across the mountains. Refrain from honking. The locals will know that you are visitor by the way you drive on the roads. Be courteous specially when navigating a hairpin curve and don’t drive like you are in SLEX or NLEX highway.

Lastly, respect the environment when you are in Sagada. Don’t throw you plastic, cigarette butts, candy wrappers and garbage along the trails, camping site and in the caves. Its best we help Sagada by keeping it clean during our stay.

Enjoy your trip.
