From Baguio, it is a six(6) hours butt-numbing ride via the scenic Halsema Highway. Sometimes, travel would take almost seven (7) hours or more depending on the road situation with two (2) stop overs for meal.The  Lizardo bus lines is the only bus that ply the route for 220pesos ( around $5-6).Their trips starts as early as 5:00 am every hour until 1:00pm but  it is better to be at their Dangwa terminal earlier because seats  are sold out even before the bus arrives  due to high number of passengers and it leaves the station once its already full not following the trip time schedule.

The Sagada fellowship and unexpected side trips I Went up to Baguio all by  myself,  met up with a former office mate  and her sister , the latter ended up to  be my travel buddy.  We took the early bus going to Sagada and arrived there after six(6) butt -numbing hours. After checking-in at Gecko Inn, we went straight to the town's Tourism Office for registration. Right at this government office three (3) smaller groups of travelers ;me and my travel mate , two young couples and a solo traveler, formed one (1) bigger group. As our tour progresses, three (3) professors joined our group. Initially, we thought of grouping together to save for tour guide fees but little did we all know we would all be gaining new friends.
