Another excellent waterfall. This one is a little different from Bomod-ok - The total height is probably similar but this is a number of smaller cascades rather than one big one. Climb half way up and there is a pool to swim in and you...More

When we arrived at Pongas Falls, I was wondering why Pongas was below the Top 5 destinations in Sagada here in TripAdvisor. This is preposterous! The scenic three-pronged falls is equally breath-taking to behold to its northern partner (Bomod-ok Falls). The trail leading to the...More

Pongas Falls is less challenging and tiring than Bomod-ok Falls. And its beauty and majesty is not comparable to the latter. It has several tiers and drops which makes the hike more unique. Depending on your pace, it can be reached from 30 to 45...More
