Hanging coffins on a cliff.­ Echo Valley, Sagada (Philippines).­

Members of the Igorot tribe of Mountain Province in northern Philippines have long practiced the tradition of burying their dead in hanging coffins, nailed to the sides of cliff faces high above the ground.­ The age-old funeral ritual continues to be performed, albeit on a much smaller scale than before.­
