  • We started our hike from Bangaan town and the I had one guide with me, she was very good and went as fast as I asked her (lots of groups doing the hike which can slow you down). The hike itself is not...  more »
  • What I love about this place is the trek is full of breathtaking sights. We had a cool tour guide as well who entertained us with stories. It was tiring but there were a lot of food stalls along the w...  more »
  • Behold the great waterfalls! Again, this is NOT for the faint of heart and the high maintenance ladies to take their Instagram photos. It took us almost an hour trekking from the main road, passing th...  more »

  • You have to have a guide for visit which doesn't make any sense. No added value for 500 php! Overall the waterfalls are beautiful and the road between rice fields also. Its doable from Sagada on foot, its only 14km there and back to town.
  • This is one of the place you need to visit when in Sagada. The water is deep and cold, but so refreshing. However, you have to trek for 3-4 hrs back and forth, depending on your group pace. We have many photo op and food break that’s why going to the falls is easier. Though, going back, it’s really challenging :)
  • If you are an adventurous and thrill seeking person, this is one of the activities that you should try when you visit Sagada. As per our tour guide, the trekking has around 8,000 steps back and forth. I recommend everyone to visit this place around Ber-months as the waterfalls has more running fresh water than summer season. The only problem is that Ber-months are the rainy season here in the Philippines so everyone has to be careful 2x since it's slippery going down. Ps- if you visit the place, try not to go on peak season because you'll end up complaining as the place gets crowded every holidays.
  • The trek is very very hard..but once you get to the falls you can relax and swim into the cold water from the falls.
  • Great view and a ton of expirience! If you are looking for an adventure this is a place to visit, though most of the local tour have this in their itenerary, if youre trying to have a DIY tour this is one of the place you should totally visit. The trekkig takes about 30mins(mid phase) and it was down hill while trekking you would pass through rice terreces and coffee farms along the way. The falls was gorgeous and you can swim in the cold but crystal clear waters. The down side was the trek goging back since its uphill but all in all this is a great place
