We pass by villages and rice terraces until we arrived in the falls by 10:00 am (due to heavy traffic of large crowd of tourist).

By 12:45 we arrived in the covered court and waited for a few minutes until the arrival of our van.

We try the halo-halo since the sun is up and we dried up walking in the rice fields.

We went straight to our accommodation to wash-up properly and then ate our late lunch in Alapo’s kitchenette by 3:00 pm.

At last! We found a REAL food in Alapo’s. We try their Sinigang, Bicol Express and Sisig and it taste all GOOD! The rice also tastes Real (not like Masfarre & Sagada Homestay).

By 4:15 pm we visit some souvenir shops since we will depart Sagada early tomorrow

By 4:30 pm we started our Eco Tour. Due to rain and our late registration, the trail is slippery so the guide suggests that we take the hanging coffin tour rather than the whole Eco tour which consist of Underground River and bokong falls in addition to hanging coffin. We agree! (Due to muscle pain after the long trek to Bomod-ok falls).
