Camarines Norte Chronicles Lanao del Norte Waterfalls

A Year in Travels September 2013 | Calaguas Islands and Lanao del Norte Waterfalling

It’s been much talked about by my backpacking friends how wonderful the island of Calaguas is. Finally this month, I was able to visit the place many thanks to Isla Lipana who initiated the Philippine Gems campaign, a search for emerging tourist destination in the country. Calaguas Islands and its Mahabang Buhangin didn’t disappoint. The journey may be long but it was well worth it. It eventually won the top spot in the Philippine Gems.

Iligan WAT 2.0

It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass. I love waterfalls and having to visit some of the popular waterfalls in Iligan city without worrying about the logistics was just too tempting. I am thankful to Iligan Bloggers Society for organising their annual Waterfalling Adventure Tour (WAT). I haven’t written much yet but my arrival on the new Laguindingan Airport, The Pampam Falls and the Kalubihon Falls so far. This was a special event that became a springboard for a bigger project.

Kapatagan Waterfalls

I’ve decided to extend my stay in Iligan and some participants decided to do a side-trip to the municipality of Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte where we visited two equally beautiful falls, the Cathedral Falls and Sta Cruz Falls.
