I cant leave Sagada without visiting this attraction. After the thrilling cave connection a day earlier, we opted to bring our truck to the jump off point going to Pongas. We cant be too exhausted as hubby had to drive from Sagada back home. We woke up at 7am, had a brief breakfast, then we met our guide near Shamrock.... More

We did this the day after we did the cave connection. We were still recovering from the aches of yesterday's activity and we were again doing a heavy physical activity. The first part of the trail is steep, then a scenic view of farm land. Then moving on to jumping different rocks, passing by a number a small falls. This... More

We were unable to go Bomokod Falls so we settle in Pongas falls instead. However, the trekking was all worth it. The view in the falls is beautiful, but you cant go dipping for long because the water is freaking cold.

Pongas Falls was just opened to the tourist trail a couple of years back and is now making its mark as Sagada’s new most extreme adventure. The Lumiang – Sumaging cave connection is still the popular choice, but the trek to Pongas is slowly gaining ground as the main attraction to best try once in town. Those who have been... More

After almost 1 hour of trekking in some rice terraces, big boulders of rocks will welcome you at the foot of the 3majestic waterfalls. Its such a photographers' haven. I will never get tired of having great shots all the time! I dislike how the tourist are leaving their trash such as the candy wrappers around the place.

Sagada is a place for people who clamour for adventure.It definitely means doing intangible things and beyond measure activities a city life cannot offer.The rocky trails and quite steep cliffs route to Pongas Falls just made the whole trip FUN!The walks along the dikes and some muddy areas were totally bearable coz when you reach the series of falls,you might...

I did this trek with 2 other guys, we had 2 guides from Saggas, one carried our stuff whilst the other led the way up the waterfalls. We scaled all 3 waterfalls and saw Tap-Ew falls at the end, having a swim in the freezing plunge pool. This trek was just what I wanted, off the beaten tourist track and... More

We were one of the first to visit this place and I can actually say we almost died there. The guide didn't know the path, got lost several times. He made us cross on the EDGE OF THE WATERFALL, didn't tell us that we will climb a FOUR STORY WATERFALL. We were totally unprepared for it and it was a... More
