“Lots of Effort for a Nice view”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The trek starts with a looong descent on the side of the hill that has been built with cement stairs here and there. The view is very nice as it gives you rice paddies and the countryside. To get to the falls, you have to trek through the rice paddies and pass by a community. The residents are friendly though some would rather have the visitors pass through quietly as some can be really loud. It was drizzling at the time so the path was muddy thanks to the many people who has already trudged through. You also get to see the occasional frogs and fauna. When we finally got to the rocky base of the falls, you cannot help but dive-in and enjoy the scene and cool waters. You have to go through the same way going back and no one is allowed to leave anything there. Best time to go is very early in the morning as there is no electricity to light most of the way when it gets dark. Not really my thing because I had a hard time with the stairs.

“The trek was the fun part”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Bomod-Ok falls was just like any other falls I've seen in the Philippines. What's different about this is that, the place where the falls is situated is really really cold at times so It'll be a struggle for you to swim. But what really amazed me was the trek going to the falls. You pass by the rice terraces which is really amazing. Almost an hour trek of going up and down those rice terraces was really breathtaking.

Reviewed 12 June 2014

We visited Bomod-ok falls last year. We were 13 in a group plus 2 guide. While hiking, we used sticks. It was a bit far from the road and going there with small childred and aged people are really not advisable. The view is nice and the falls was majestic. Going back to the main road is double the time and effort than going. It was really tiring. Bring your own water and cap, as well as camera. Your shoes should be comfortable. Avoid wearing slippers and sandals.

“Nice falls, awesome hike!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

This is an awesome hike if you like a strenuous workout. It's about one hour each way from the trailhead with a lot of steps. If it's hot bring a lot of water. It costs 500php to get a guide at the trailhead. The falls at the end are spectacular, if you've never seen falls before, and good if you've seen a lot of falls. There is a pool to swim in, but it's a little cold. Not as much garbage as a lot of other places, but the locals still drop some :-( Check it out.
