Location: Mapawoy, Mayoyao, Ifugao Types: Slide horsetail, Cascade, Segmented The last leg of my eight-hour Mayoyao Trip was a trek to Tenogtog Falls. The eight-hour day tour seemed longer than that. My Ifugao guide Jerome had ironically showed signs of fatigue due to seemingly never-ending walks. At past 3PM, we had a late lunch at Aeron’s at the town proper. Being re-energized, we headed west. Two and a half kilometers away from the town proper is a small road going to the northwestern barangays of Mayoyao. After a short ascent, the path along a gorge turned narrower. In about 25 minutes of moderately-paced walk, weRead More →

Location: Sitio Limunsudan, Iligan City Types: Plunge, Segmented, Tiered In all the years since I started traveling, there are several destinations, things, and events that proved to be rather elusive. And for the times that I never had the chance, I persisted in yearning and in dreaming. An excellent opportunity would open itself when it is least expected, I hoped. Touted to be the country’s second highest waterfall at 872 feet next to Aliwagwag Falls in Cateel, Davao Oriental, Limunsudan Falls had been in my bucket list for a very long time. Although I have been regularly visiting Iligan City since 2010, Limunsudan was alwaysRead More →

Location: Brgy. Bonbonon, Iligan City Types: Fan horsetail, Segmented When nature decides to flex its brute strength and raw power, man is reduced to puny and vulnerable state. Imagine then when the waters roar as you begin to come closer and meet it face to face, you can feel heightened anticipation and unbridled joy yet mixed with anxieties and fears. As we embarked to the first destination of the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0 organized by the Iligan Bloggers Society, the rains already started to drop in the hinterlands of Iligan City and Lanao del Norte. The river was rising as the rainwaters forcefully flowed toRead More →

Location: Jawili, Tangalan, Aklan Types: Tiered, Fan horsetail, Segmented It was my second day in Aklan and all of Panay and I was raring for another adventure. Top of my list was going to Tangalan, Aklan and see Jawili Falls for myself. While planning for this Panay Island Trip, my good friend Pol Tonel suggested that a visit to this waterfall was well worth it. So, I left Kalibo early that day but got stopped at Tangalan town plaza as a parade was going on. I found out that the people were celebrating the town’s founding anniversary. But in a few minutes, the tricycle hadRead More →

Location: Poblacion PeƱaplata, Island Garden City of Samal, Davao del Norte Types: Cascade, Tiered, Segmented One of the destinations that we visited during our recent Feb 13-16 Davao City + Surigao del Sur + Samal Island Trip is Hagimit Falls. The falls is one of the must-see places in the Island Garden City of Samal. Although it is not as spectacular as those waterfalls that I have chased thus far, Hagimit Falls has its unique charm that has gravitated tourists and travelers alike to pay a visit. Hagimit Falls is composed of several smaller tiers and segmented waterfalls which naturally provide pools, perfect fit forRead More →
