Bring your friends here in summer not in January or February because the season is really cold. Only few of my friends bear to swim here because of the weather. The water is really clear and ice cold. It will took you 1.9km going here. Bring extra clothes. We were all tired going up so we took the short cut... More

A trek through the steep journey going to the falls. Steep enough that you are provided with a large twig which will serve as your cane. Perfect to do on a cloudy weather as it is a long walk under the sun. The water of the falls feels ice cold, in addition to the areas cool climate, but I managed... More

Although in our group, 4 of them went trekking. The guide gave them stick to help while walking through stiff and rocky roads. They were also advised to bring water with them since it would be a 2 to 3 hour trekking. What's amazing according to the 4 trekkers, there's a lot of food and souvenir items that you can... More

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.
