I’ve been wanting to go to Sagada to experience the sea of clouds, that plan is going 3 years old now. LOL.😂 So when I saw someone posted about this place online, I told Kaeser that we need to go since it’s just 1 hour and 20 mins from my house!
We left the house at 4:00 AM and arrived at the Treasure Mountain at 5:20 AM, just in time for the sunrise!
As per their Facebook page Treasure Mountain, they can’t always assure the occurrence of the sea of clouds. Sea of clouds is a natural phenomenon which mainly occurs in mountains. There are several factors that may affect its occurrence, one of which is the weather. The best time to witness the sea of clouds is in the morning during a sunny day.
The best thing about this mountain is that you don’t need to hike for hours to see the breathtaking view, so you can bring your kids with you with no worries. My son enjoyed his first mountain experience!😊
I saw some Makahiya plants or Mimosa Pudica and introduced it to Kyle. I told him that when I was a kid, I used to play with it. And being the vlogger that he is, he vlogged about it.😂 (thank you to my Instagram boyfriend for these stolen photos)
I highly recommend this place if you want some peace and quiet. For those wondering, there’s cellular signal for all networks so no need to worry about uploading your photos.😊
