Chasing Waterfalls

I'm the type who'd go around chasing waterfalls. Quite literally, though. 

I think there's nothing more exciting than hiking down a ravine, hearing the wild surging water descending from an upstream river, and seeing for the first time a rough flow  of water plunging straight down a deep catch basin. There's always that moment of awe knowing that that beautiful scene is tucked and hidden in the middle of a thick green forest, and there's always that invitation to jump right into the turquoise-colored water.

I have seen some of the most vibrant cascades here in the Philippines. Most of these waterfalls share the same character as the others. Just like   the graceful flow of Kabigan, Batlag, Daranak and katibawasan Falls; or the rogue vertical drop of Tapiyah and Bomod-ok Falls; or the tiered and delicate cascade of Merloquet Falls; or the gentle and segmented flow of Cambugahay Falls. 

I know there are still a lot around that I have yet seen. And I'm so looking forward to updating the list I have below as soon as I get to explore the others. But for now, bask in the beauty of these waterfalls. :)

Note: The next time you visit a waterfall, please make sure not to leave any trash within the area. Bring your own trash bag, and if possible bring home your spoils. Please keep it clean. Thank you.
