We visited Bomod-Ok Falls and it was a sight to behold. We could have loved to go for a swim and just enjoyed its cool water after a long hike down from New England (the natives call it that) of Piglisan Village (North of Sagada). The heavy rain made it very slippery to venture into the rocks and the swell... More

The trek starts with a looong descent on the side of the hill that has been built with cement stairs here and there. The view is very nice as it gives you rice paddies and the countryside. To get to the falls, you have to trek through the rice paddies and pass by a community. The residents are friendly though... More

Bomod-Ok falls was just like any other falls I've seen in the Philippines. What's different about this is that, the place where the falls is situated is really really cold at times so It'll be a struggle for you to swim. But what really amazed me was the trek going to the falls. You pass by the rice terraces which... More

We visited Bomod-ok falls last year. We were 13 in a group plus 2 guide. While hiking, we used sticks. It was a bit far from the road and going there with small childred and aged people are really not advisable. The view is nice and the falls was majestic. Going back to the main road is double the time... More

This is an awesome hike if you like a strenuous workout. It's about one hour each way from the trailhead with a lot of steps. If it's hot bring a lot of water. It costs 500php to get a guide at the trailhead. The falls at the end are spectacular, if you've never seen falls before, and good if you've... More

It's a long trek going to the big falls. And the stairs going down to the falls are very steep. But the view along the way is ok. You will pass by a small village.The big falls really did not meet my expectations. Its really not that big. And the current by the time we got there is really strong... More

The surprise on this activity was the Rice Terraces we walked through on the way down to the falls. Beautiful. Lots of walking on ledges though. May not be great if you have a fear of heights. The swim in the pool at the foot of the falls was very special.

I've been to Sagada over 20 times but I love hiking down the valley and swimming in the cold water pool every time. :) It might be too challenging to those who are unfit or inactive so use your best discretion when planning this hike with slower people.

Walking downhill through rice paddies and small villages is a lovely way to reach that waterfall. A good spot for swimming with locals and tourists alike. Just remember you have to go back... and it is going to be uphill !! A guide for the trek is compulsory.
