March 27, 2013 11:00 pm when we departed from Manila (Ohayami Terminal in Sampaloc Manila). Our schedule is supposed to be 10:30 pm but due to large crowd of chance passenger our trip is delayed 30 mins.
March 28, 2013 6:30 am when we finally had our stop over – restroom & breakfast.
After 11 hours of tough ride, we arrived in Banaue, Ifugao by 10:30 am
My plan actually is to hire tricycle for Banaue viewpoint tour – rice terraces sightseeing, however since our itinerary is delayed we ride straight going to Sagada (fare P300 per pax). The companion of the jeepney driver (a Banaue licensed guide) drops us in an eatery for a late breakfast before we continue our 3 hours trip to Sagada.
After breakfast we stop-over in Banaue Rice terraces Main viewpoint – fortunately the driver and its companion are generous enough to lets us see and enjoy the beauty of Banaue before going to Sagada. I don’t know if this is their customs or we are just lucky 😀
We continue our trip by 12:30 and stop by in the Boundary of Ifugao and Mountain Province – restroom break.
Again we stop by in the Bay-yo Rice terraces viewpoint and continue our trip.
By 2:30 pm we arrived in Sagada, finally!
11 hrs and 30 mins of Ohayami bus ride
almost 3 hrs of jeepney ride to Sagada
