Tell your friends about it!

I’ve lived in Talamban for the most part of my life, but I’ve never seen this gem until now! I think it was just earlier this year that I found out about this place.

So, where should you start if you’re planning to do this trek? First, you’ll need to go to Talamban, and then ride a habal-habal near the entrance of Sunny Hills Subdivision. Tell the driver to take you to Budlaan, where the jump off to the trekking point is. The fare is P25 per person.

Since I don’t know how to give you instructions right now because I didn’t know what I was doing (or where we were going) half of the time, I just arranged these pictures by sequence.

All in all, Kabang Falls has 7 levels. However, some say it has 4 or 6. I’m not even sure anymore! Haha

If I were to compare this trek to the previous ones we’ve had, I’m gonna have to say that this (the waterfall trail) was the hardest for me. I’m not very good with balance. I crawled and hugged huge boulders for dear life and I tried my best not to pass out when we encountered a snake. What an experience!

We finally reached Mt. Kan-Irag after 3 hours (est). We didn’t climb the peak though. We followed the path going to the highway instead.

I heard that this place was originally developed as a golf course, but the development came to a halt for some reason. It is beautiful, nevertheless. It felt like we weren’t in Cebu anymore!

We met a few mountaineers along the way, including Sir Jude (right) of Sugbo Outdoor Club.

The entire trek lasted for about 5 hours. And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed the photos together with my crappy writing. Sorry, my mind is elsewhere as of the moment. I’ll make up for it next time! 🙂
