I’ve received several inquiries on how to go to Kan-irag | Kabang
Budlaan | Kainsing Falls (I know right, even the locals have varied names for the waterfall.  The community before and after the main falls have different names for it.

Although I was initially reluctant in providing instructives, perhaps it is for the greater good. Or not. Because personally, my trips do not have itineraries at all. I could say that we did not really follow the itineraries below. But this guide might work for those who have not been to these places. Or better yet, approach a local community of mountain climbers to guide you.

Mt Kan-irag Cebu City

Portrait of Ariel Montuerto | +63 922 764 9935 Aye’s family, as we call him, is one of the victims of the recent fire that razed Mandaue. So, maybe it is appropriate to pay his guiding, P500.00 at the least. I can assure you though that he is the most responsible guide you can find out there. He is funny (and loud)! And he spoils his guests to bets.

-1 L water (campsite use)
-1 cup of rice
-trail food/ food for dinner
-packed lunch

-waterproofing
-raincoat
-personal kit
-toiletries
-extra clothes (for those who plan to swim)
-jacket/bonnet/extra socks
-garbage bags/plastics

Expenses

– Php200.00 (fares, buffer for your own necessities)
– 25 pesos Habal2x from Sunny Hills to Baogo
– 40-50 pesos ride from Ayala Heights to JY
– 125 pesos buffer

If there is an instructive I’m willing to impart—the best travels are unplanned and itinerary-less.

Please don’t leave your trash. Follow the principle LEAVE NO TRACE to heart. During our recent trek, we ended up bringing down someone else’s trash. Be a responsible and an educated trekker.

Siquijor’s Magic: Of Salagdoong’s Trees and Beach

Salagdoong Forest Reserve, Salagdoong, Siquijor, Philippines On our way to Salagdoong beach, the trees canopy the road. With the running tricycle accompanying the silence of the trees, I couldn’t help but ask Manong to pull over.

Siquijor’s Magic: Lazi’s Balete

 The branches of molave trees are like snakes’ bodies curling up. The tree tunnel is part of Salagdoong Forest Reserve, a reforestation project of the local government. Just like the balete tree, the tree tunnel becomes an attraction, even a mystery. I can’t help but compare Lazi’s balete and Salagdoong’s […]

Siquijor’s Magic: Of Sunsets and Silhouettes

After talking with the man who rip-rapped the slope behind the resort we stayed, I walked the urchin- and seaweed-teemed shore. Siquijor, Siquijor, Philippines It was just me and my-feet-wading-through-the-water kind of silence. Two outriggers headed ashore.  Docked, the fishermen emptied their boats and talked about catches and the wind.
