Another stop of our Pagudpud trike tour is the 25m high, majestic Kabigan Falls (aka Kaibigan Falls).
What I like about this journey is the need to trek for 30 minutes through rivers, mountain trails, wooden bridges, before one can arrive into this beauty accompanied by a tour guide.
Pretty much like going through a suffering, that makes the goal even rewarding huh?
Bathing is possible in the cool, clear waters of the natural pool.
Admission Fee is P30. And if you ever go hungry or thirsty along the way, need not worry for the area has plentiful of vendors selling buko juices fresh from the coconut and other delicacies.
Along our trekking, I also happen to witness a very traditional way of doing the laundry in the Philippines, the ‘Palo-palo Method’. It’s good to see that locals in this area are still practicing this tradition, something that I only see in old movies nowadays.
Until next time ‘Kaibigan’!
