This was both a tremendous experience and one I will never want to do again. I was not told anything about the 2 km walk to the falls but saw quick that the "trail" was just a small un-railed long series of descending steps with a drop of tremendous meters..to your great injury or death. I am afraid of heights... More

This waterfall is nice but truly hasn't anything spectacular. The walk through the rice fields to reach it is however very nice (although quite difficult due to its steepness). There is a fairly typical village on the way, not spectacular indeed. Round trip walking time about 2 hrs.

this one I read alot about before deciding if I should go for it, cos maybe the trek would be too much for me. When I got to sagada, that's when I decided I would do it, cos it's not everyday I'll be there. Lol. It's 500 for a jip to go there (it's a 6 km drive), tour guide... More

The trek going to this 200-meter beauty was awesome. It was like being transformed to a medieval movie with limestone towering over us. The walk along the rice paddies was long about 1-2hours but the scenery, all the greenery and mountain range made it all worthwhile. My excitement heightened when I started hearing the rush of water from the falls.... More

1-hour Trek to Bomod-ok Falls with our tour guide, Ate Glo. Trekking while learning some of Sagada's native tradition and culture. Distance: 2 kilometers from the Tourist Information Center. It was fun and worth the trek! Beautiful scenery, rich culture. Bring with you waterproof cameras and poncho in case it rains. It's better if you wear rashguards, it will protect... More

Really a nice easy walk from town. Nice views along the way. Should be especially beautiful during rice harvest time. Hang by the falls. Tough walk back up to the road.

The hike going to this place is not that easy. Though there are solid/cemented staircase along the trail, it is tiring. The trail includes walk in the forest trail and the Rice Terraces... it is amazing and worth all your efforts. We even saw hunters carrying pigs and boars!

Get ready for an hour trek to the falls. Bring bottled water and some snacks to nibble while passing though the scenic village of Pidilisan and patches of ricefields. A refreshing dip in crispy cool water awaits every visitor. Bomod -ok Falls is nature's beauty, a must go place in Sagada.

This is one of the highlights in my travel/vacation to Sagada (my second visit). I wouldn't mind the long hours of trekking since the spectacular view on the way to Bomod-Ok is truly rewarding. A tour guide is a must at a minimal fee, not just for safety purposes but also to give you tips, ideas and a brief background... More

The path to travel down is long and narrow, but it is nothing compared to the hike back up. One should have strong knees and legs to endure the return. First of all, people are required to register at a site where a guide will be assigned to your group To get to the falls, one goes into a series... More
