Good one but as an addition. Not a main attraction of the day.

When you are on rice terraces it's a nice place you can get cooled by a cold water from the waterfalls. But let's face the facts, it's not something special - just an average... read more

When you are on rice terraces it's a nice place you can get cooled by a cold water from the waterfalls. But let's face the facts, it's not something special - just an average waterfalls. Some rocks around make a nice atmosphere but if you go here just to see this waterfalls - you might be a little disappointed. We... More

Our chartered Grandia took us to the entrance to the trek towards Bomod-ok. The journey was a gradual descent of steps and a concrete labyrinth that could really look imposing - especially if you look back and wonder if you could navigate the thousand steps upwards. The guide will not tell you till halfway that there is an easier exit... More

Lots of steps to get down to the falls, but walk guide takes you back to a lower level village for the jeepney to travel back to Sagada. If the weather is damp or your knees are poorly recommend taking up the offer of the bamboo walking pole.

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.

My first time to visit this falls. It is like the way to Tappias Falls in Batad bbut shorter walk. Our guide was amazing (Ate Noemi and Kuya Randy). 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
