SAGADA SERIES: Kiltepan Sunrise

I think I am a lazy person. At every opportunity, I wake up as late as possible. One reason why I have never tried simbang gabi. But Sagada made me wake up early for the sole reason of seeing the sun rise. Incredible. That's because of Kiltepan.......

Had to wake up 4:30 am for this one. Was not part of the original plan but since we failed to go to lake Danum, I thought it would be best to salvage this one before leaving for Manila.

Some hike to get here but a ride would be more comfortable if you already have sore muscles like ours. Along with Aiden and Su, our Korean buddies, we set off to see this talked about place.

One of the main attractions here is the clouds, if you are lucky, you can see lots of them covering the the spaces between mountains. Such beautiful sight would make you imagine walking through them. But there were only a few clouds the day we came......and a big cloud, single as it may be, positioned itself directly where the sun is supposed to rise. what a timing.

But we can't let even that spoil the fun. As the sun rises, you realize that there's much to marvel as you become more aware of the view below, the lovely terraces of the nearby village, the river cutting through the valley and the verdant trees. Such a perfect setting for watching the sunrise.

I wonder how it is like spending the first sunrise of the new year here. Sagada is really a wonder to behold......
