Travel Photo: Sunrise at Kiltepan Viewpoint

Hi everyone! Today I will be featuring one of my best loved photographs of Sagada which is a cool and beautiful town approximately 275 kilometers north of Manila.

Where in the world is this?


The sunrise at Kiltepan Viewpoint in Sagada, Mountain Province should not be missed! Why? For me, it is fascinating, spectacular, and breathtaking! The whole experience was indeed amazing-- seeing the hues of the sunrise, the sea of clouds, the mountain ranges, the rice terraces, the awesome view, and the tourists eagerly waiting for the sun to come out; feeling the cool air embracing my body; and realizing that God will always give us new mornings every single day. This experience will always be treasured.

And this is just one of the many exciting things to do in Sagada!

“If you want to be reminded of the love of the Lord, just watch the sunrise.”

  6. Hi! I'm planning to go to Sagada sometime before Christmas and Kiltepan is on my list! Can I ask, how long is the hike to Kiltepan? Is it safe to go there before Sunrise? Did a tour guide accompany you? If yes, how much is the cost? Thanks! Hoping to hear from you soon! :)

    1. Hello Dianne! This is a rugged road going up to Kiltepan Viewpoint. Cars can go up too. We did not hike as our van was able to go up the mountain. It is safe going there even at dawn. We went there just before the sunrise at around 3 AM. Our friends and van driver are our tour guides. You can ask for a tour guide at Sagada proper. I am not so familiar with the costs of tour guides in Sagada.

      Hope you will have a memorable trip to Sagada! Enjoy and share your experiences too! :)
