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.

Though…

Wakat Cave

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

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…
