Lessons Learned from Trekking Bomok-Od Falls

April 7, 2017

Trekking is not fun as you may see. It takes a lot of determination to reach the destination and complete the hike. Our recent trip to Bomok-Od Falls in Sagada made me realize that I pushed myself to the limits, both physically and mentally. I did not expect hardships along the way.

It was the first time I realized how many other things I was capable of doing if only I tried. And I still have something to give even during moments I think I was too tired to go on. To be honest, trekking was that hard.

  1. You don’t need a lot of material things in life.
  2. Water is life. I never realized the need for it until I started trekking. Water, while on trek is of utmost importance. It brings in extra energy to keep us going and maintain sanity.
  3. You cannot live alone, you need people to go on.
  4. Everything will be worth it in the end. Absolutely, not on my part. The payoff was not that great. The following week was a week of pain relievers.
  5. Keep moving. No matter how fast/slow you go, you will reach your destination as long as you move.

Every life lived to the fullest is an adventure and also a lesson. I did learn a lot on our recent trip.
