Jeffer's Odyssey

Antong Falls of Sison, Pangasinan

It’s the first day of December!! I hear carols! I hear cheers! Oh, wait… I hear groaning of people having no clue what presents to get for family and friends, haha! I’m feeling slightly meh about this time of the year coming around this time, though, and I couldn’t pinpoint exactly why. But the mere fact that another year’s ending, and another one’s about to start is something worth celebrating, I suppose? So. Yeah. I’m there. Before I do roll around in all that yule-goodness, however, I’m going to talk about another falls – the last of my waterfalls series (this time, I hope. I’m crossing my fingers that I’d get to see more of ’em in the future). It’s Antong Falls of Brgy. Inmalog in the town of Sison, Pangasinan.

Tangadan Falls of San Gabriel, La Union

Sometimes, you find that there’s an itch that you can’t simply ignore, and you just have to scratch it. For the month of September, some of us developed especially itchy feet and most of our waking moments were occupied with “WHERE DO WE GO THIS WEEKEND?!” As it turned out, there were a couple of other waterfalls accessible (read: can be reached within 1 to 3 hours) from Baguio. Our first stop: Tangadan Falls in nearby San Gabriel, La Union or, as I’d like to call it, the “waterfalls that will make you crane your neck up (tangad in Ilocano).

The Magdapio (Pagsanjan) Falls of Cavinti, Laguna

I don’t know what they teach grade-schoolers in Philippine elementary schools nowadays, but I can still remember the first lessons we’ve had in our Sibika at Kultura (now I think it’s Social Studies…?) and the types of land forms and bodies of water. When it came to talon, or waterfalls, the prime example used was Pagsanjan Falls. Fast forward more than two decades later, and I was finally able to lay (more than) my eyes on Pagsanjan Falls in Laguna.

Tinuy-an Falls of Bislig, Surigao del Sur

You know that a place is awesome when not even the rain can stop you from having loads of fun. Following up my post on Ditumabo Falls of Baler with another waterfalls. This time, it’s the multi-tiered Tinuy-an Falls of Surigao del Sur, which is also referred to as the Niagara Falls of the Philippines – the miniature kind.

The Ditumabo Mother Falls of Baler, Aurora

Baler is one of those places that holds a bit of mysticism, thanks in part to advertising and hype (although I have yet to see the film Baler, which I don’t really plan to). But the good thing is that it’s not purely hype, because this place is truly a must-see for anyone wanting a break from too much action (or inaction, as the case may be) in the urban jungle. It’s a place that has something to offer for those who are looking for a complete “getaway package”. Nature? Check. City scenes? Check. Adventure? Check. A healing sojourn? Another check.  Read more

Samal Island: Hagimit Falls Nature Park

Next to the mountains, my next favorite things are waterfalls. There’s just something relaxing and soothing about seeing a cascade of water – big or small. And when we went to Samal Island, we were fully aware of how limited our time was, so it was just Maxima Aquafun on our minds. And then, while riding on the tricycle on the way to the Resort, we passed by the turnoff leading to Hagimit Falls. Our trike driver suggested we stop by there later on the way back to the Wharf. And so we did exactly that.

Tappiyah Waterfalls of Batad

We all love surprises, especially if they are the beautiful kind, and hidden somewhere in the Batad area is a waterfall that totally fits the bill. Now that I think about it, it is the first ever waterfall that I laid eyes on up close, and I feel blessed that my first waterfall experience – which I found utterly mesmerizing – was not a fluke.
