Soak in the Fun at Kalubihon Falls and Dalipuga Falls

We’re still mid-way from a day of waterfalling in Iligan City and Iligan Bloggers Society still has a couple more in store for us. Satiated from lunch at Pampam Falls, the group was ready to move to the nearby Kalubihon Falls. It took us about a quarter of an hour’s hike, from gradual ascending hills to steep rock walls with some natural pools coming from a stream above. From the looks of the trail, this promises to be an interesting one.

Through a Cave to Kalubihon Falls

“We have to go through there?” I asked when we reached a cave with a low crevice. Now this seems exciting. We left all belongings that would get soaked as we had to swim through a cold pool of emerald waters. It was a small but wonderful cave with good-looking formations. I simply admired the roots submerged under water as they looked like they were frozen in time. I had fun going to the other side leading to the opening where the rocks looks like drapes very similar to the ones in Sumaguing cave in Sagada.

I emerged from the cave to finally view the humble showers gushing from above cavernous walls surrounding this rocky cavity. There were a few kids there so I imagine there may be another path from above but I kinda enjoyed going through the cave. The rest of the group enjoyed the showers before heading back. Seeing this shower-like falls was reward enough after the hiking and short spelunking, personally think the fun was getting there.

Small but Charming Dalipuga Falls

For our last falls, we had to track back to where we started and ride a jeep to another area in Barangay Dalipuga. It took only a few minutes before we reached our jump-off by the main road. The hike was pretty straightforward as the trail is already established and easy to find. After 20 minutes or so, we’re reached Dalipuga Falls. It’s a small falls with a small but inviting pool. The waters though was slightly murky but it didn’t stop some of us for a few dips. Dalipuga Falls beauty is its quiet cascades that can relax or even inspire some the artist in us.
