Palan-ah falls and hot springs are located at Tulgao West, Tinglayan, Kalinga. The name is derived from the native term Pinalpallang-ah which means chair. The falls spray down from approximately 100 meters above forming a pool where during a sunny day, one practically swims at the end of the rainbow.

A month before our trip to this majestic place I'm still not decided whether to have my skin get inked or not. Yeah, I'm old enough for this once in lifetime chance but still few things need to be considered and questions that are yet to be answered when we get there. First, how painful it is?
