For me who have seen far better falls, don't make this the reason for the hike. The falls is high and a good subject for photography but the views and the culture you encounter on this kilometers-long hike on your way there is the most important factor of this adventure. Along the way, you will see how people live, from... More

Majestic water falls after a treck along the village of Fidelisan Sagada, a small-scale mining community....water is very fresh and clean!

The trek heading to the falls may take you roughly a good 45 mins but the steep, rocky and some parts muddy trail makes taking a dip on the falls surely worth it! Swimming in the cold waters and playing around the gushes of water from the waterfalls are highly enjoyable!

It’s a hard hike back on the two times i visited, but the falls and a cold dip in it is worth the exercise. Plus points for 360 vistas with terraces, mountains, and the original (location of the) village. You’d also bump into hardy locals lugging produces and other goods. Do give way to them on the narrow pathways

We went there right after Watching the sunrise. So we were the first ones to arrive there. It was a very long walk. So if you plan to go there, at least be prepared. But the view of the falls was great. We arrived there around 8am. The falls was all to ourselves. We just relaxed there for almost 2... More

The long walk all the way to the falls was magical with all the views of the terraces and peaceful nature just right in front of you. But reaching the falls was a little sad for me because there is just so many people and the place where the falls is, is not really that huge. I don't know, I... More

This is the longest falls in Sagada, we walked 2hrs back and forth, while walking we were stunned with the view, felt the aura of nature and we even passed the Igorot community living in a very simple life and their rice terraces! When we got into the falls it was just soo wow! You can swim but we didn't... More

Walking on Bomod-Ok Falls is way out of my expectation. A 3-hours walk or less if your not numb. Not advisable to senior citizen and children ages 5-8. Water and food is essential. And the most valuable "STICK". Very helpful in walking on isle of rice terraces.

You've never really been to Sagada without going to the Big Falls. It is an effort going there but the view was picturesque and the trek is worth it

This is also a must in Sagada but the travel is not recommended to those with health conditions. We walked for around 8kms from the mountain to the falls then back to the mountain. I enjoyed thought the jeepney ride on our way back base camp.
