Lobo Cave: Samar’s Underground Water Park

From the innocence of my mind with regards to the island of Samar, never have I thought that the island houses treasures beyond compare. The island was so dull in my head, not until I was able to set foot on the island and embarked on a journey that will surely stay vivid on my…

Lulugayan Falls: Philippine Niagara Falls

What better way to clean our sweaty and stinky bodies than a rushing stream of water? Out from our 2-day extreme adventure in Langun – Gobingob Cave Exploration, we decided to refresh our selves. Instead of the normal indoor shower, we took it to another level. Sir Joni decided to take us to Lulugayan Falls…

Langun – Gobingob Cave in Samar (Langun Cave): Into A New World

“Beep… beep… beep” went the alarm of my phone. We were supposed to get up now but our bodies demanded more rest and the sleep-inducing air did not allow us to break out from our slumber yet. Everybody is still asleep and the wild snoring sounds echoed inside the cave’s chamber. Fighting against my urges…

Asik-Asik Falls: Dwarfed by Nature

I have witnessed several waterfalls in my life but never have I seen yet one as peculiar as Asik-Asik Falls. Guarded by the mountains, Asik-Asik Falls lies hidden in the middle of the vast open sea of grass fields and waving slopes of mountain landscapes of Alamada. It has been one of the must-visit waterfalls…

A Gratitude For 2016 Adventures

Before the year 2016 ends, I would like to honor it by looking back on the journeys it has brought me. Each year has always been a year of discovery and adventures. Every destination comes with another learning. Through the years, I have learned and gained new lessons as I grow into the man I hope to be and I will be.

Mountain Hopping and the Extended Weekend

It all started with a simple invite. Days before September ended, Four Eyed Laagan and Wandering Soul Scamper invited me to join their weekend trip scheduled by the end of October. A hike to Mt. Lantoy in Argao, Cebu with river trek and caving side trips. I am somehow divided and hesitant to join at first…

Surigao del Sur: A Full Packed Weekend Trip

Mindanao has plenty to offer when it comes to natural wonders. Each province has something to boast for. One of the provinces is Surigao del Sur. Just recently, the long holiday vacation made me able to visit some of the places Surigao del Sur. It was at the end of August that two holidays came…

Bao-Bao Falls: The Humble Beauty

Lianga maybe as rural as you can imagine, but hidden within its trees and mountains is a sweet spot sleeping in peace. Bao-Bao Falls may not be as tall and proud as the other known waterfalls, but it sure leave a unique mark on your experiences. The waterfall reminds me of Cambugahay waterfall in Siquijor. Though…

Wakat Cave: A Droplet of Wonder

Wakat Cave has just started to make noise in social media. The cave actually has no official name. It just so happened that the cave is in Brgy. Wakat. The cave has clear waters which I don’t really know whether it came from the nearby sea or if there is some sort of spring beyond…

Enchanted River: A Mystical Blessing of Hinatuan

As the name says, Enchanted River is believed by the natives to be protected by the fairies. With its unknown depth, thus the deep blue color of the water, unknown water source that flows towards the open sea, and the mysterious fishes that just pops out from nowhere; true enough, the river deserves to be…

Libuacan spring – the lesser known gem

Libuacan cold spring is a spring where its waters flow to form a river. The spring somehow mimics the Enchanted River, only lesser known. The spring also boasts deep clear water. The place is not yet fully commercialized. Libuacan cold spring is located in the municipality of Tagbina, Surigao del Sur. Most locals from Tagbina knows the…

Tinuy-an Falls 

Tinuy-an Falls is yet another gem the Philippines can be proud of. This waterfall is perfectly carved to form a giant ladder-like structure. Each level somehow is perfectly sliced by nature.   Tinuy-an Falls is located in Bislig in the province of Surigao del Sur. Last August 29, 2016, I was able to visit this…
