Best to bring a 4x4 or a good 4x2 SUV. We took the Manila-Baguio (5 hrs plus 1 hour lunch at Camp John Hay) Baguio-Sagada (about 7 hours, including 30mins change tire in Bontoc junction). We took the "alternate route to Baguio" to avoid the traffic in the towns, we left Manila at 3am, and reached Baguio at around 8:30 in time for breakfast. The Baguio-Sagada had a 4 hours of ROUGH roads, as in no pavement / no fences / sometimes 1 lane roads. Going back, we took the Sagada-Bontoc-Banawe-Lagawe-Nueva Vis& Ecija-Manila route, which we recommend. Though rough road is less rough, some patches were extremely rough, needing to pass through mini streams and seemingly just cleared land-slide areas. We stopped over at Banbang, YMC Travellers Restaurant (very good and reasonably priced lunch). From Gapan, take alternate route through San Isidro, Cabiao, Sta. Ana, San Simon then exit NLEX to avoid traffic in towns again. The ride back was around 11.5hours which included the stopover.
