Hidden far deep in Argao's mountain barangay called Conalum is the town's majestic Bugasok Falls. The way to Bugasok Falls is by a trek through the riverside, starting at the bridge built over the river in the mainland. The trail upriver to the falls is an enchanted walk along "forested cliffs and solid rock boulders" where you get to see unique plants and birds.

After our year end hike to Mt. Apo last year, I took a few months hiatus from hiking. Suddenly, the thought of getting toasted by the sun and tracing new trails no longer did interest me. In short, I got tired of hiking. I mean, what's there's more to do? I've been to Pulag, Kanlaon, and Apo, what else should I try to prove to myself? If you're a beginning hiker, don't get me wrong. Eventually, you'll reach into a point when the mountains no longer bring you thrill. You'll soon realize that nobody gets a medal for finishing a number of summits or for arriving at the summit first. When this tim ...
My first adventure in 2017 was in Argao!
After our caving at Agta Cave, we checked Bugasok Falls before we go back to Tourism Office.
Jessie's Torta & Sikwate were our snacks after the caving and a long drive by motorcycle. As always these Argao's delicacies are my favorite.

A few weeks ago, Punky, who was one of my travel buddies in Cotabato, invited me and other friends to see Agta Cave and Bugasok Falls in Argao in Cebu. Since I didn't have a major trip on April 26, I said yes with some reservations. I was able to confirm I was joining a few days before the trip.
This, by the way, got me thinking that I haven't been much around the Cebu province. Cebu is my second home next to Negros Occidental, but just like my actual home province, I haven't put much focus in it. Maybe I should start #ProjectCebu too.
I arrived in Cebu City via my usual route on the af ...
The Philippine Mythology is, to me, a cultural treasure and a patchwork of inspiring tales. From the inhumanly strong Bernardo Caprio to the mountain goddess and her golden galleon in Argao, I've heard and read plenty of intriguing Philippine mythical stories that made my childhood pretty awesome. Not to mention, these tales kept me at bay, whenever I had an urge to wander at night around neighborhood.
But with the recent upsurge of social media and sci-fi films, the Philippine folklore is sadly becoming a lost art. Even though the Philippine Mythology is extremely fascinating, today's you ...
If your travel list for this year isn't complete yet, here's an idea from "Biyahe ni Drew": go chase these waterfalls across the Philippines!

How do you know that a cave is big? A river runs through it.
Cebu boasts of a town where one can go trekking on a mountain, spelunking in a huge wet cave and swimming under a waterfall secluded by gigantic stone formations, all in less than a day.
The estimated budget for this weekend or day-off getaway? About P400 to P600 for each adventurer, depending on the number of your peers.
But this is not for the faint-hearted.
Dubbed as "Balay sa Agta", Cebu's largest cave in the town of Argao does not, despite its name, host some giant black-skinned monsters or agta. Neither does the cav ...
