#ilovesagada. This place has super nice people, relaxing ambiance, and chilly weather. Please stay as you are and keep the culture. I will come back. Bomod ok comes from bod ok (?) i remembered the meaning "water pressure". It's very majestic like all the mountains at Mt. Province. It's the biggest in Sagada. For me, it's one of the highest...

The trek down to Bomod-ok falls is easy but it will take a while. You'll fall in love with nature, if you havent. At some point you'll feel so close to the mountains like you're drawn to them. The trail towards the falls is another nice view, sunflowers and other wild flowers everywhere. The view of Bomod-Ok is on a... More

For me, the 2 hour walk does not compensate the beauty of the falls. It has a small bathing space since going further is already deep. the trail going there is half cemented and the other half rocky and you will be able to walk in the rice terraces, walk into the village with snobbish people, it feels creepy and...

The1.9 km walk was all worth the hike down-up through the terrain. Took us 2-3 hrs each way to finish. Make sure you are physically fit to endure the trek and hydrate well. Best to wear well-fit rubber shoes to keep your feet off from mud. Check the local information booth if a village ritual/festival is going on, so you... More

The highlight of our trip in Sagada. Yes, "highlight" if you are planning your trip and would like to get to know more about their community and locals, this one is best and challenging things to do. One of the longest posts here in my blog and this year trip. Going there you need to have strength, ready for cardio... More

A hard, long, exhausting descent into this falls will make you question your sanity. The trek going to the falls last about 45 minutes, depending on how many selfies you manage to take in between stops. It's not as daunting as trekking in Echo Valley or inside the caves, because there are concrete steps all the way to the site... 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.
