Journeys and Travels has once again embarked on a solo backpacking trip, this time, for exploration of the falls of Lanao del Norte. The Province of Lanao del Norte is famed for its waterfalls and in fact, they have on record, the highest number of waterfalls in one province. The famous among them are Tinago Falls and the Maria Cristina Falls.
I left Pagadian City on board a Rural Transit bus to Kapatagan, in Lanao del Norte. The trip costs Php90 and runs to an hour to reach my destination. Upon arriving in Kapatagan, locals told me to go to Park n Go Bakery to get habal-habal (motorcycle) for a fee of Php 18.00. Since I am the only one and is tight on time, I told Ronald, the kind 19 year old habal-habal driver to bring me to Cathedral Falls for Php 40.00 and he will be my photographer too. He agreed.
Cathedral Falls beckons on me as one that has not been promoted well and seldom I see other people visiting the falls except the locals who live in their barangay appropriately named Cathedral Falls Barangay. I made myself absorbed the enormous power of the water and the majestic view of the Cathedral Falls. Truly, nature and God has made marvels for us to appreciate and seek inspiration from.
Journeys and Travels has made this historic visit to the Cathedral Falls in Kapatagan, in the Province of Lanao del Norte as a travel blogger who wanted to see how this gift of nature also becomes the gift of man to humanity. It has been well-maintained, unspoiled and still a mighty sight to behold.
Kapatagan has a grand Cathedral Falls waiting for you to visit. One that is different from other waterfalls one have seen and been to in their lifetime. It is also perfectly safe travelling around to the Cathedral Falls as it is a very tight and closely-knitted community. The locals are friendly too.
