I came here with the company of one Filipino guest and one Japanese guest. Before my visit to this place, I thought Echo Valley was all about coffins dangling by the mountainside. With the help of a volunteer guide we came across the area, a trek deeper down the valley proved there's more to it than just that. He led us to the trail leading to the site of the hair-raising human bones scattered on the ground and coffins inserted on stone holes. This tribal custom, which no one knows exactly how it started, still exists up to this modern day times. After all, this is the unique practice that makes Sagada a unique and distinct destination. See my travelogue for more pictures.
