Location: Brgy. Santa Cruz, Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte Type: Block ledge waterfall During my ten-day Mindanao Solo Backpacking Trip on October 1-10, 2013, I visited Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte with the hope of going to its two waterfalls. But because of intermittent rains, I only managed to go to Cathedral Falls. Of course, I figured that a finer weather was required so I could cross river streams safely. And so I promised to myself that I will go back to Kapatagan quite soon. The Iligan Bloggers Society created that opportunity for me when they organized the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0. And because I had threeRead More →

Location: Brgy. Tagbalogo, Naawan, Misamis Oriental Types: Fan horsetail, Tiered Even before I booked my plane ticket going to Iligan City via Laguindingan Airport to join the Iligan Bloggers’ Society‘s Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0, I already made up my mind to stay for at least three more days and explore other waterfalls. There are other waterfalls worth exploring, I reckoned. The first WAT3.0 participant I met in Iligan was Marcos Caratao | Detourista.com shared the same passion that I pursue: chasing waterfalls. So we talked about other waterfalls that we can visit after WAT3.0. The group decided to go to Canapulan Falls in Naawan, MisamisRead More →

Location: Brgy. Buru-un, Iligan City Type: Fan horsetail It has been more than four years since the first time that I visited Mimbalot Falls. After the medical-dental mission that I joined in March 2010 was finished, a few of us did a quick side trip to Camiguin Province and I extended my stay to visit Iligan City. And in this trip I saw Mimbalot. Four years later, nothing much has changed on the natural beauty and majesty of Mimbalot other than the structures built by the local community at the foot of the falls. For the record, I do not begrudge them for building. ThisRead 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 →
