ILIGAN CITY | Pampam Falls

Iligan City after all has 23 waterfalls for me to go around. This weekend, I got to visit, by accident, 2 of these in one day. One of the waterfalls in Brgy. Dalipuga, Iligan City is the Pampam Falls. Pampam Falls is 13kms away from the city, and another 15-20mins trek from the humble barangay to the location, this falls is a favorite hangout place for the locals. You can catch groups of teenagers, a gathering of families, and a few exited and playful children on its surrounding. It is a two pieced slabs of boulders, one on top of another where which the water glides down to. The water basin is not deep. Around 4-5ft. in depth, almost anyone can enjoy dipping on it’s cool waters.

The trail: Manageable; LOD: Easy, but we have to ask a local on taking us to the falls. We were,l actually, expecting a different one — Kalubihon Falls, but we took a different trail that led us to two of the three water falls in the area. — missing out Kalubihon Falls. But, two falls for one planned waterfall visit is not bad for the lost explorers. LOL.
We spent a few minutes on that falls before heading downstream. Alex had not had lunch, and had to just take it. That makes a window time for a  quick dip and a swim.
I got a hygro massage at that. LOL. The falling water was enough to give us  pressure on the back for a massage only nature can give.
Here’s a shot from the water basin, the closest that I could get. I had an interesting comment on Facebook regarding it’s shape..^^ Hmmmmm… What do you think? 

TRAVEL NOTES:
+ Visit the falls with a local guide, the trail is easy but you could, also, easily miss a turn and get lost.
+ You can visit both Pampam Falls, and Kalubihon Falls in one setting.
+ Bring your own provision if you’re planning on staying a bit longer.
+ Bring the essentials: Swimsuit and Camera — then again locals are not used to bikini-clad visitors. LOL! Any outfit will do.
+ Waterproof camera would be best, but in the absence of such, dry packs is must.
+ Pick up and carry your trash back to town and care after yourself.
