Dodiongan Falls

Dodiongan Falls

Located at Brgy. Bonbonon, Iligan City, 14km away from the city proper.

How to get here?

1. Ride a Dalipuga/ Sta. Felomina jeepney, tell the driver to drop you off to 
Barinaut crossing. ( Fare: 7php)
2. From there you can see lots of single motorcycle/ "habal-habal", tell the 
driver that you want to go to Dodiongan Falls. (Fare: 30php/head)

* NOTE: you can tell the motorcycle driver to pick you up,
there is no cellphone signal
so be sure to tell the time you want the driver to be back.

first glimpse of the way will be trekking, honestly i'm a bit nervous.
it's like a disaster thanks to Typhoon Sendong for the damages!
We just followed a tip from a blog about Dodiongan to follow the
river path to lead us to the falls.

and yes we did, it's a ROCKY ROAD i must say!
many of our friends warned us that the way is dangerous because
of the damages of Sendong, but it didn't stopped us...

at the end of the river, yes a beautiful site awaits us,
it was a breathtaking view, in my mind i was like
"it's all worth it"

we ate lunch then after we took some photos,
yes these are my adventuremates LOL!
highschool friends and of course the boyfriend.

our background is so lovely!

it's not easy to climbed that rock! 
well for the sake of the beautiful waterfalls.

Ending the Last Day of Summer RIGHT! 

Lesson Learned about the Experience:

"Don't be afraid to take an unfamiliar path,
sometimes they're the ones that take you
to the best places"

Pampam Falls

Pampam Falls

Another best way to enjoy summer is to visit one of the 
23 waterfalls here in my home town, Iligan City

Pampam Falls is located at Kalubihon Brgy. Dalipuga, Iligan City
you can take a jeepney ride and just ask the driver to drop you off at the
crossing of Kalubihon.

(motorcycle ride)

from there you can ride a single motor / "habal-habal"
just tell them you're going to the falls, automatically 
they will drop you off near in the Kalubihon Elementary School.
Then just ask some locals there where you can pass to go to the waterfalls.

Lucky for us, one of the locals is so kind to be our
tour guide since it's our first time.
It's a 15-20 mins. walk from the school crossing.

Though it's tiring to walk for 18mins.
but it's all worth it. 

The beautiful nature welcomed us
with a very nice view.

Guys, meet Pampam falls. :)
isn't she beautiful? 

the falls is very inviting and it's really cold! 

it's a very nice place to relax!
really, just enjoying the gift of Mother Earth.

of course we couldn't not just go home 
without taking some remembrance 
to that place.

It's my boyfriend's gift/promise to take me here
for our 3rd monthsary.
yes.. it's our 90th day! LOL 

Happy Day! <3

Divine Mercy Shrine

Divine Mercy Shrine

It is located at El Salvador, Misamis Oriental
the city is just near in Cagayan de Oro and an almost 2 hour buss drive 
from Iligan City.

It's easy to locate just tell the buss driver to drop you off to the 
Divine Mercy shrine, from there you have to ride a Singe Motorcycle or "habal-habal"
for 20php and you can text them to pick you up.

It was my boyfriend's idea to take me here,
since I was too busy with my online job.
(the reason why I haven't blogged)

Girls have to wear skirt, well you can rent a skirt at the 
main entrance for only 10php.

This is a perfect place to Pray, Meditate and to escape from reality.
The best view here is the 50ft. statue of Jesus Christ.
