Noong unang panahon, ang proseso nang pag libing ng mga igorot ay isabit ang kabaong sa bundok. Dahil ang paniniwala nila ay mas mataas mas malapit sa langit. Hindi lang yan, pag ikaw ay pumanaw ikaw ay iuupo sa silya na naka pamaluktot na posisyon. Kaya't ang mga buto ay bali-bali at ang kabong ay maliit. At ito ay pag lalamayan ng tatlong araw. Pag katapos ng tatlong araw ng lamay ang bangkay ay ibabalot sa tela at pag papasa pasahan ng pamilya. Kapag na tuluan ang isang tao ng likido ng bangkay, ayon sa kanilang paniniwala, ay suswertihin sa buhay. Hindi nila inaalis ang lamang loob ng patay. (lahat kami: eeeeewwwwww!!!) Ang kabaong malaki ay mga igorot na naging kristyano. Hindi na nila binabali o pinagpapasahan kundi sinasabit na lamang para sa tradisyon. Papunta: 30 minutos pababa Pabalik: 1 oras paakyat nanginig ang mga paa ko dito at hindi ko magalaw. dito na ba ako ililibing? ron: ano picturan kita? ako: ayoko, ayoko mag papicture sa patay. ron: ayy ako din. ayoko 😣

After an exhausting trek, finally we reached Sagada’s Infamous Cemetery. The Hanging Coffins. For thousands of years, people in Cordillera have practiced the tradition of burying their dead this way. They believed that putting their dead in steep walls made their loved ones nearer to the gods. The dead begin their journey into the afterlife strapped to a wooden chair (Same as the one in the photo). It’s one of the many rituals that’s still being practiced in Sagada to this day. It is also part of their tradition that those who died of illness cannot be placed inside the coffins in fear of bad luck. On the other hand, getting a drop of blood coming from the wrapped corpse is considered good luck.

Are aliens 👽 real? Are they observing us? I have no idea but I'm sure this stacks of stones is surely a mystery to behold.

I've always wanted to experience life in New Zealand and one of the places I will visit first once I get there is the Hobbiton 🧝♂️. Who wouldn't want to try the simple and peaceful life of the hobbits (except for the running away from orcs and addiction to rings), right?

The site is said to be the exact location where Portuguese Magellan planted the cross upon his arrival in Cebu in March 1521. As stated on the marker at the bottom of the cross, the original artifact is encased inside the wooden Tindalo cross. The painted ceiling illustrates this historic event.
