This time I ran out of film reserves, apparently all of them were left at Laoag. So the next set of photos are shot using my digital camera. It was almost 1 pm so we decided to have picnic in the sand. To save money, we packed our own food at home: Fried catfish (fresh catch from the Bacarra river); Ilocos longganisa, adobo and rice. We also prepared sandwiches with Iced tea as our thirst quencher.
Around 1pm, we decided to enjoy the sea, took our shirts off and played with the sand and saltwater. —no photos since i was too occupied with our sandcastle—
It was already 3pm when Manong, the kind tricycle driver who took us around northern pagudpud, brought us to Kabigan falls. Kaibigan falls is a 30-45 mins trek from the main road and there is a P10 environmental fee to be collected and they require you to get a guide that will bring you to Kaibigan falls. I didn’t know we already reached 1.2 km from our starting point! The trek was a series of forests, rice paddies and little creeks.
Kabigan Falls has an approximate height of 87 feet with a concave basin underneath to catch the water perfect for the guests and tourists to swim at and enjoy its water. The water was totally very cold when I took a dip. I never wasted time to savor the beauty and wonder of this site. This is exactly an amazing treasure of Ilocandia. A sight to behold. It is our prayer that it can be conserved for the future’s generation to enjoy.
