7 Places to Try Rock Climbing around the Philippines

Climb on and feel like a rock star!

Tourists usually head up North to the quaint backpacking town of Sagada in the Mountain Province to immerse in the cool weather, caves, waterfalls, hiking trails, and culture. But this town in the Cordilleras also boasts of beautiful cliffs that are just perfect for rock climbing. Echo Valley in Sagada has a natural rock wall with an easy, medium and hard route.

Inquire at the Sagada Tourist Information Center for a climbing guide who will bring all the equipment needed. The scenery here is just spectacular and pretty hard to beat.
