1, Dunsulan Falls in Bataan
Quiet and tranquil??"those are the two words that best describe Dunsulan Falls. Despite being a zip line ride away from the top of Mount Samat, Dunsulan Falls seems to fall of ...
Far in the land of crater lakes and balisong, the town of Laurel in the province of Batangas keeps a duo of natural wonders mostly known only to its residents. The twin falls of Ambon-ambon and Malagaslas provide an attractive alternative for those who are looking to beat the intense summer heat. It's also great to pair it with a trip to nearby Tagaytay or Taal Lake, adding a bit more adventurous spin to an otherwise laid-back excursion.
The falls are located on separate sides of a forest cover in Brgy. San Gabriel. From the jump-off in Sitio Salipit, each falls can be reached in more or le ...
I always wanted to travel and explore the beauty of nature that God provided us here on earth. I know for a fact that there's a possibility that humans or us(I'm not exempted) will not be able to see it in the future. So working and travelling? You can't really have both at the same time unless you're a traveller doing researches, archaeologist who looks for remains all over the world or whatever job and career it is that involves you to be outdoor with nature. I always day dream of going outside the country and travel the world, I guess I'm not brave enough yet to do it and besides Philippine ...
The province of Batangas boasts of a lot of tourist attractions ranging from historical structures, food, and natural wonders, such as mountains, islands, and waterfalls.
Speaking of waterfalls, since it was still a rainy season, last July 29, 2014, my friends and I travelled to faraway Laurel, Batangas to witness two waterfalls, the Ambon-Ambon Falls and the Malagaslas Falls.
Definitely overshadowed by more popular towns like Lipa, Nasugbu, Laiya, and Calatagan, Laurel is a third class municipality in the province of Batangas, Philippines. Laurel was previously part of Talisay, its curr ...
Time was not our friend on day two. From Caleruega, we bypassed Laurel and went to Tagaytay for a short break. Laurel was put off for the next day. I am glad we did, for it gave us more time to spend at the two waterfalls of Laurel: Malagaslas Falls and Ambon??"Ambon Falls.
On the third day, when the alarm went off, I slipped on my sandals, went to my friend's house next door for breakfast, and then we were off. I noticed my friend was wearing shoes...were we on for a long hike to the waterfalls? Just a short 20??"minute hike, he assured me.
At the jump??"off, where the tricycle had depo ...
Perhaps this is one of the challenging treks that my wife and I did because it was an exploration that we did alone in a place we have never been before and just relied on directions given by locals in order to reach the falls. Malen was really very reluctant in proceeding because she was already scared during the downhill drive along the endless sharp curves and landslide marred zigzag road from the Tagaytay rotunda down to Talisay, Batangas which is the coastal town of Taal Lake. It really took a huge deal of persuasion before she agreed with the expedition.
There was an element of da ...
