Waterfalls Chasing in Mindanao
There are three things that interest me when I travel alone: beach, caves and falls. But waterfalls chasing is of paramount interest during my rainy season adventure.
Last December, 2014, I ventured into another waterfalls chasing in Mindanao. I've had a series of my solo waterfalls chasing in Laguna, Ilocos, Rizal, Quezon, Cebu, Mountain Province, Negros, Camiguin and a whole lot more. But this one is extraordinary because Mindanao is said to have the best. biggest and tallest waterfalls in the Philippines.
Originally, Asik-Asik Falls and Bani Falls of North Cotabato were part of the itinerary but since they are out of the way and I was given only less than a week to do this feat, I had to forego the two falls for the meantime and wait for summer.
Three years ago, I went to Maria Cristina Falls, Tinago Falls, Cathedral Falls, and Limunsadan Falls in Lanao Del Norte. About a year ago, on the other hand, I went to the seven falls of Lake Sebu. So I did not bother to include them in this escapade.
So from Davao City, I went to my first spot which was inMaragusan, Compostela Valley.
Marugusan has numerous falls such as Tagbibinta, Bisnar, Ugong, Cesar, Marangig and Pyalitan Falls, among others. According to the locals, there are more or less 20 falls in the vicinity.
