Surfing in Baler, Aurora

Surfing in Baler, Aurora

I have always wanted to try surfing but never really had the chance to do so until our team has finally decided to have our summer vacation in Baler, Aurora last April 2009. This was indeed one of the most superb travel experiences I’ve ever had and might also be the last trip that I’ll share with my present office colleagues.

Baler, the capital municipality of Aurora Province, is situated in the Eastern Central Luzon facing the Pacific Ocean. It is approximately 230 kilometers from Manila and can be reached by traveling the roads (via Pantabangan or via Bongabon) that twist through the Sierra Madre mountain range, where maybe the only remaining lowland virgin forest, as well as the largest areas of upland virgin forest, in the country is located.

Trek to Bomod-Ok Falls in Sagada, Mountain Province

Trek to Bomod-Ok Falls in Sagada, Mountain Province

Another popular activity that one shouldn’t miss when visiting Sagada is the trek to two of Sagada’s most visited and sought after attractions – the Bokong Falls (Small Falls) and Bomod-Ok Falls (Big Falls.)

Our group was supposed to visit these two falls on our third day in Sagada but since we didn’t have much time, we decided not to push through with our trek to Bokong Falls and just headed on to the 200-feet tall, Bomod-Ok Falls.
