The magnificent beauty of Binangawan Falls - Camiguin Island

Image
  Camiguin is a volcanic island and a province covered by Northern Mindanao. One of the favorite destinations that should not be missed when visiting Camiguin is the Binangawan Waterfall located in the highland of Sagay. In terms of road accessibility, a paved route is already constructed so that visitors can easily see the magnificent falls.  The easiest way to reach the main fall is to hire a motorcycle in Sagay.  From there, the driver will bring to the drop-off point. As a climbing enthusiast, the treks may be the easy one for you; but steep ones are difficult for me. as a new Hiker like me, I suggest visiting these waterfalls during summer so that the trails are not too slippery.

  There is a never-ending exploration in Camiguin Island's alluring destinations, from dipping into the inland waters, exploring the Islands' beaches up to the historical places. But then, it will not be completed if you dropped an opportunity to scout the majestic waterfalls on the Island. On the second day of the visit, got lucky with perfect weather, the group headed to barangay Mainit in the town of Catarman to experience the nature's impact of the Tuasan Falls. It is about 27 kilometers away from the place we stay in Mambajao.  Going there is like, easy as pie; passing a very accessible and concrete road with a little bit of zigzag towards the location. If you're passing the same way, don’t miss to visit  the Sunken Cemetery  just along the road in Barangay Bonbon.

The mystic beauty of Katibawasan Falls, Camiguin

To complete the day in Camiguin, we headed back to the center of Mambajao and take an opportunity to visit the Katibawasan Falls. Then, take another five-kilometer route with a slight elevation going through Mt. Timpoong. This trip was part of my bucket list in completion of the three waterfalls exploration in the Island of Camiguin and I was very fortunate to be here. My curiosity got activated due to numerous locals told me that this waterfall has the most scenic vicinity, feels like in fantasy series but thinking to have little exaggeration.

A volcanic eruption has been recorded in 1871 and once again erupted in 1948 to 1951, which resulted in hundreds of lives lost, buildings ruins, including the old church and the sunken cemetery”.
