Day 2 started with a healthy breakfast at The Lemon Pie House. If you’re gonna go to Sagada, trying our their homemade lemon pies is a must! The food is relatively cheaper than the rest of the restaurants and the set-up is really different because no table is similar. You can choose whether you wanna sit on the floor, on pillows, on tiny chair, on regular chairs, or a sofa! Due to the body pain we had because of the adventure a day before, we opted to sit on the sofas instead.
After breakfast, we headed to the SAGGAs tour guides and asked for someone to guide us on our way to Bomod-ok Falls (also known as the Big Falls). We rented a vehicle to the nearest village before trekking a good 2.5 km down the rice terraces. Our guide was a 15 year old kid named Kevin who, despite his age, made us all seem incompetent because we were the ones slowing him down the path. The view going down was amazing even though the sun was burning hot. On the way down, we already thought about how grueling climbing up the terraces on the way back would be.
A good hour later, we were finally at the foot of the big falls. There were several groups waiting and bathing already. Some local kids were in their birthday suits jumping off tall ledges into the icy cold water beneath the falls. Carla and Chuck were the only ones brave enough to face the chilly waters. One hour later, we decided to head back up the terraces to be in time for lunch.
While waiting for our ride to arrive in the village, we spent some time playing around and taking photos of our silly selves. A couple of local kids decided to play with us as well which was really fun.
We were supposed to head on to Echo Valley after lunch but it started pouring so we just visited the church and surrounding areas before locking ourselves in our rooms and drink the night away.
