SAGADA SERIES: Bomod-ok falls

I mentioned that if you are in Sagada for the first time and don't even have a clue what is in store for you you might as well want to take the next bus back to Baguio upon seeing the crowded downtown. But wait till you see the outskirts, anywhere you go in all directions, it simply is paradise on earth!!!!

On our first night, after the SUMAGING cave experience, I was smoking in the balcony of Sagada Guest House when I chance to meet 4 Korean students from Subic.

 new buddies... Aps ( our guide) Tim, Su, Aiden, and Justine with Teresa

We started with chitchats then I realized they are clueless as to where to go. So I asked them to join us in our trek the  next day which they delightfully accepted. Destination---BOMOD-ok Falls.

We hired a jeepney for 600php. ( I advise that you get one, the hike down and back from the set-off points is enough to kill you.hehe) We climbed up the jeepney and really got to enjoy the view and the fresh morning air from top.

There are 2 drop off points Banga-an and Aguid. We took Banga-an on our way down....some wonderful views during the hike....[[on the way down]]

para lang akong tatay nila...lol



the famous Bomod-ok Falls. Good thing it rained for 3 consecutive nights prior to our visit. Last time I hear, there's almost no water left to fall. The down part, the water was a bit muddy so twas not a good time to take a dip.

We fancied on the big rocks instead as our guide Aps maneuvered into them so as to take good shots. Again, look at the people in the picture above to get a rough estimate of how tall this waterfalls is.....

 Koreans in sagada
 pahirapan umakyat dyan sa mga malalaking batong yan.....
On the way back....our guide instructed us to take another route, a rather eaier one in AGUID. This is good coz taking two routes would give you another angle into the landscape below. Every angle in this valley is simply amazing.

the other village.....AGUID and their rice terraces.

we had to hike to that village to catch on our ride back to the center of the town

The climb up has proven to be more challenging, good cool air occasionally blows, fills your lungs and reaches your soul.naks

  32. Sendo---natakot ako--akala ko kung anung anak sinasabi mo. slow ko talaga.hehe. traveling makes my heart happy. yun nga lang di masyadong nakakagala dahil sa limitations...lam mo na.....palakaibigan naman ang mga Koreans e---akala lang natin snob sila pero shy lang talaga. natatakot mag_Ingles---at kasi, they mind their own business....kaya ganun. pero kung ikaw una approach sa kanila, okay naman.
