The hike goes though rice terraces, nice view if you don't have a cloudy weather. Possibility to swim in the lake down the falls. Go early if you want to avoid all the tourists, it gets busy very quickly. You have to pay to go there and it is compulsory to hire a guide. I would rather prefer not be... More

If you're going to Sagada, you definitely have to go to this place. The falls offers a relaxing view and would definitely replenish your 2-3 hour of trek. If you're an outdoor type of person, trekking would be easy for you. But for starters, it may take a while before you reach the place as there are so many ups... More

My husband and I hiked to bomod ok falls on our own while exploring the Sagada region. The walk from the tourist center to the falls is roughly an hour on paved roads overlooking beautiful mountains and rice terraces. Once we reached the falls we hired a guide (500 php) that took us down the 2,000 steps to the waterfall.... More

Bomod-ok Falls is one of the priority destinations in Sagada. Although time-consuming and physically drainig, the trek to the Big Falls is all worth it. You have spectacular view of the rice terraces, get mesmerized by the sheer strength of the falls, get acquainted with the locals. The trek may be a bit long, takes more than an hour. If... More

It's my first time to see a falls and Bomod-Ok Falls never disappoint. We were given tour guide, and mind you, Nanay tour guide was in her 80s and kickin! Hahaha. So before starting the long journey, we were given sticks to guide us since the path was steep. We went down and it's almost 4,000 steps. We never really... More

What a remarkable waterfall and hike. Yes it is challenging but it is very worth it. Go to the falls around 12/1pm to avoid the swarming crowd. We had the place to ourselves. Also you can avoid steep transport charges if you don't mind walking from sagada town. It's a leisurely 60 minute walk through sleepy towns. You better be... More

The trek to Bomod-Ok Falls is both a cultural end ecological experience in the North Sagada area. One can take a shuttle to Fidelisan Village, where a guide can lead you to the falls. The guide hands a walking stick, foreboding of a long journey. The first part is the descent to Fidelisan Village, the first settlement in Sagada. The... More

Tourists are required to hire a local guide before starting the trek. It took me and my friends around an hour or two to reach the Bomod-ok Falls. It was exhausting, but the breathtaking view of the rice terraces, the lush greeneries and the falls itself made the trek worth it. Wear a comfortable footwear, and don't forget to keep... More

It was on our 2nd visit when we were able to trek to the falls. They wont allow you if it is past 4pm. We headed here after going from Kiltepan disappointed without seeing a glimpse of the sun raise; Fortunately, we had a perfect tour to the falls. It was a fine day where you get to pass the... More
