From Lumiang Cave, we went to another hike reaching Bokong Falls in 10 to 15 minutes from the main highway.  The hike to the falls isn’t that taxing but the heat of the sun is getting intense and I forgot to slap on a sunscreen. We hiked on a slope passing by rice fields before reaching the small waterfalls.

Doing everything in one day is a bit enervating.  If I should have known that I'll be staying longer in Sagada, I would perhaps have done it one place at a time.  Anyway the falls is not really far from the town center and I could perhaps reach it by leisure walk.

Too many tourists arrived in the falls and there are local kids plunging from the rocky hill above where the water is lashing to the green-colored pool below.  After awhile, the tourists too started jumping off.  It was fun, the water is cold and the pool is deep, probably about 10 to 15 meters deep.

Bokong Falls is popularly known as the Small Falls.  The Big Falls or Bamod-ok Falls is supposed to be included in the itinerary but there is an on-going local ritual there, so we did not go.
We spent about an hour there before we head back to our transport and to the town center and have our lunch at Kimchi.  In my opinion, the food at Kimchi is better than in Yoghurt House, or maybe I like Korean food.

Up next, our final stop on this tour - Bonfire dinner at Lake Danum.
