We haven't eaten our lunch when we head out to the falls. We were briefly advised on what to expect and if I remember it right it was around 6k steps from where we started up to the falls itself. Going down was not a problem and knowing that the falls is waiting at the end of the trek, but... More

it's about 6km from town so unless you have a lot of time and energy, you would need to hire a vehicle to get you to the starting point. the rate is 500 pesos but since it fetched us a little farther (to avoid climbing the hundreds of steps we had to take at the beginning of the hike) we... More

The hike through the village and rice terraces are just as interesting as the waterfall itself. You come across villagers selling local treats (i.e. macaroni sweetened with a variety of ingredients) and home-made donuts stuffed with sticky rice. The falls themselves were very nice and you can get fairly close up - feel the spray. In December the water is... More

Those words in the title are the words that i felt when I went to Bomod-ok falls. The power of the water coming from the top will make you want to be with it more.

On our way there I got a lot of info from Ate Noemi. When we reach the place I screamed my heart out (because it's really cold). hahahaha. but this place... More

It is nice walk down the hill, many stairs, some parts of the road still under reconstruction. I love the village in the middle, where you need to pay lil money to pass. The waterfalls are really easy to find, no one could get lost, but still you need a guide it is the rule. My advice is: plan this... More

Nice place to visit!! A long trek to get there but it was worth it!! Wear sensible trekking footware (slippier will) and make sure to use a walking stick, which fortunately offered by the tour guide. Each tour guide can accommodate up to 10 persons and cost 500pesos per group.. The scenery is breath taking and make sure you have... More
