Batad rice terraces

Waking up wrapped in a dawn chill, on a hill that is thousand meters above, overlooking a seemingly natural man-made creation, which size is as colossal as the mountain that holds it is truly remarkable. Reaching it may be a frowner to some, however, you’ll forget all about the difficulties when you finally see Batad Rice Terraces, the most popular among the rice terraces of the Cordilleras. Batad, along with 4 Read more

karap-agan falls

When I set my eyes on something, I’ll make sure to do everything to achieve it. I will only stop if pursuing is really impossible and life-threatening, especially when it comes to travel goals. That was why, when I set my course to Matalom, Leyte, I set my expectation pretty clearly—that before I cross to Canigao Island, I should experience Hitoog Cave and Karap-agan Falls first. That was the only Read more

The amazing canyons

We’d barely slept the night before. A friend and her daughter missed their flight so they had to re-book an alternative route. Aside from the extra chunk of cash that they needed to shell out for re-booking, the hassle of transferring to another airport and the struggle to get a seat at the busiest time of the busiest day at Cebu South Bus Terminal was a hell of peskiness.

A small falls greets you before seeing the hidden falls of Binalayan

The Creepy Ride from Cotabato to Midsayap The palpitations started when our PU driver/tour guide in Cotabato Grand Mosque offered to bring us directly to Midsayap and insisted to take the road along the MILF territory. Though we followed all his warnings not to Read more

Asik-Asik Falls

If that deep-blue river in Hinatuan defines “enchanted”, then Asik-asik Falls is probably the waterfalls version of it, wherein the cascades drip from a seemingly unknown source. The lush vegetation that covers the entirety of the perpendicular ravine adds mystery as to where the water is coming. You will have an impression of multiple springs sprouting from the rock walls, unless you come really close to it. Asik-asik Falls does not have Read more

Daranak Falls in Tanay, Rizal

Here comes summertime and people from the metro swarm the closest water bodies to ease the scorch. One of the places frequented by the city folks is Daranak Falls in Tanay, Rizal. The waterfalls offers a natural cooling effect, venting out unnecessary body heat of every patron. Since it is one of Manila’s closest, the falls vicinity usually gets crowded for the month of March to May. The cascade splits Read more
