The best thing about this trip, aside from the waterfalls of course, is the habal habal ride. A habal habal is a product of Filipino ingenuity. It is a modified motorcycle with an outrigger that carry up to 4 passengers each side. Commonly this kind is the main means of transportation for the Filipinos living in the boondocks. My salute to the habal habal drivers who are so strong to drive this and carry up to 10 people high up in the mountains.
Pinandagatan falls is a newly discovered falls in the mountains of Sibagat, Agusan del Sur. The way to this beauty includes a 30-minute habal habal ride and a 45-minute trek up and down the mountains.
The habal habal.
I’ve got scratches all over my legs from this untamed surroundings. Fell several times too because it rained a day before and the trail was so slippery.
It might be wet season already in the Philippines but this beauty is unaffected. It still feels like summer because it was not overflowing with water like we expected. Still this is awesome.
