Since we were so tired from the almost 4-hour hike below the heat of the scorching sun, we decided to eat lunch. We feasted on roast pork and roast chicken but tried to not eat everything because if we knew that supposing we run out of food, there would be no choice left for us but hunt in the forest. Haha. Joking.
There’s a camping site there where we rented a small cabin for P300 where we put all our stuff. After lunch, we hurried to explore the mountains for some waterfalls. And it was fortunate that the closest waterfall is just five minutes away (so that explained the noise of the rushing water)! We cleaned up our mess and hurried for water. WATER!
Lanzones Falls. This is a very beautiful sight to behold. With the water falling from the skies like curtain held down at the end of a play and the nature around, the smooth stones, I could have written a poem at that instant that might capture what this place is really about. But I didn’t bring my pen and paper down there, so I figured that at least I could take a piece of the place with me through taking photos.
The water was really cold and for a second I was afraid to take a dip, but what the hell. It was so hot and I was drenched in sweat I thought I deserved some nice waterfall treat! And of course, there’s my social responsibility for these guys: to take their photos.😀
After an hour or so of scrambling and fooling around, we decided to follow the river because according to the tour guide we hired (who just left after eating) there’s another falls further. We walked through the large rocks and found another waterfall. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find the trail to go down there, so we resorted to taking pictures at the smaller waterfall before the large one. Later we were told by the locals that there’s no way to go down there unless you have gears like rapelling ropes and the like.
