Bagongbong Falls

The concrete road through Almeria’s rolling hills came to an abrupt end just before a forest clearing and we had to leave our motorbike and driver. Soon we were hiking down a narrow trail that turned muddy and slippery in some parts. We had to remove our slippers for better traction at one point but fortunately the trek wasn’t that long. The falls were at the bottom of the trail but we still had to cross an onrushing stream on moldy rocks to get a better view. My half-century old knees were still trembling from our muddy descent but fortunately our guide Zaldy and his cousin Nestor were there to help Oggie and me cross the stream with our packs.

After enjoying the view, dipping in the cool waters and taking several photos, it was time to go back. I thought the ascent up the steep slopes was going to be even more difficult but was surprised that it was actually easier. I didn’t even have to remove my slippers. We only had to stop briefly at some point to catch our breath but otherwise we did not have any problems going back up. A farmer chatting with our habal-habal drivers even gave us several bananas – for free! (Biliran has among the friendliest people I’ve met.) Looking back we felt Bagongbong Falls was well worth the effort we expended on granddaddy knees. Read More: http://www.shoestringtravelers.com/?q=node/58
