EVENT | Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0 Recap

On it’s third year, Iligan Bloggers Society together with both private, and public sectors of Iligan City invited bloggers, and digital influencers to visit, and experience Iligan City! The Waterfalling Adventure Tour is an annual waterfalling tour for bloggers, and social media influencers to experience the best of Iligan City, and share it through their network. There was pre-event online meet-up for the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0 organizers, and participants in a scheduled  Tweet-date before the actual trip, and tour itself. This tour not only utilizes the participants blogs, but also social media avenues to broaden the reach of the campaign.

DAY 1 | I had to excuse myself from joining the first day excursion. Jam, and I had to finish some errands for the next day’s activity. And when the clouds covered the sky, I knew that the Dodiongan Falls visit would not turn out easy. So when we met up with them, they related how the water level rose, and how angry the waters fell from the waterfalls. here is one of the shot taken by Iligan Ko. They only did a quick visit, and went back as soon as the water levels started to rise. On the WAT, it was the first time Dodiongan Falls was seen in photos with this much water falling down from it. The participants shared their accounts over dinner at Tatay’s Grill that night. They wanted to go out, and experience more of the city but was advise to take some rest for an early, and tiring activities the next day.

DAY 2 | The second day was the make it, or break it part of the event. We either get to Sitio Limunsudan to meet the tribe, and get to see the Limunsudan Falls, or not all. We woke up early, and have briefed the participants of the long  travel, and the expected rough roads ahead. We worked with the military to help us with the supplies we carried for our year community outreach, and for transportation as well. This year we decided to bring school supplies to the children in the school, and having everyone in one transport makes it easier for us to look after everyone. But when we expected just one military vehicle, we were actually greeted with three! Turns out the local government are also sending some food supplies to the community, and they decided to do it at the same date. You do not really need a military escort if you’re planning to go to Limunsudan Falls. But it is smart of you to contact the local tourism, or if you have a contact at the community. After the ritual, and ceremony we went off to another 15-20 minute ride, and 15 minute trek to see the waterfalls. when we got back to the community, we were greeted with a humble presentation by the Higaonon tribe in full brightly coloured outfits. Before the rain fell went back for another grueling, wet, and dusty ride to Iligan City.

 

DAY 3 | The third day we visited the Tourism Triangle: Mimbalot Falls, Ma. Cristina Falls, and Tinago Falls. It was all swim, and play for us. We made sure that we had enough time  explore Mimbalot Falls, hang out at Ma. Cristina Falls, and swim at Tinago Falls!

ILIGAN CITY | The Breathtaking Limunsudan Falls

Limunsudan Falls, the second highest waterfall in the Philippines is located at Sitio Limunsudan, Brgy. Rogongon, Iligan City. The barangay furthest from the city proper, and is the boundary to the other regions neighboring the Lone City of Iligan. It is one of the most powerful waterfalls I’ve seen, and know of to exist in the country — towering, and massive with a water drop of 870 feet. This two tiered waterfall gushing down massive volumes of water a majestic, only my opinion, ofcourse, as Ma. Cristina Falls. How can giants in the wild be as beautiful as this?
