Why do you travel?

Calle Crisologo -Vigan, Ilocos Sur

Somebody just asked me recently "Why do you travel" typically my answer would be like this " I'm searching for something" shocked to my answer they'll automatically asked another question " what are you searching for?".

Mt. Ampacao - Sagada, Mountain Province

 Truthfully I don't even know what I'm searching for, funny isn't?, am I wasting my time traveling around the countryside looking for the thing that almost impossible to find?. (Hopefully not)

Why do I travel?

Marlboro Mountain - Sagada, Mountain Province

 Some says it's FRIENDSHIP, well I do managed to gain new friends while traveling.

On our way to Pongas Falls - Sagada, Mountain Province
Some says HAPPINESS specially when finishing up a challenge.

Others says its FREEDOM, no parents watching your every moves, no brother or sister ordering you around, but when on the road I'm longing for their voices to shout at my ears. 

But I Guess I need to travel more to find out the answer.

Pardon me for my english and writing skills but I'm doing my very best to improve it. thank you!.

Ditumabo Adventures


Ditumabo Falls is located at  San Luis Aurora popularly known as the Mother Falls and it is 30 - 40 minutes away from the town of Sabang.. It's the biggest waterfalls in the province.

Start of the Trek:

the Jump Off point
Me and my guide were given 2 options on how we are going to cross the river.

 Option # 1

Cross the Manmade Dam or
 Option 2

Cross the Bamboo bridge ( na may maniningil na bata sa dulo), we chose this one.
Moving On.

lakad-lakad din.

Notice the Giant pipelines?, Ditumabo falls also serves as a source of electricity for the town of San Luis so the local government of Aurora constructed a Hydroelectric power station near the area.

Crossing the rivers.

River crossing #1

River crossing #2
River crossing #3
This is the most challenging part of the whole trek, the current is strong and I have to battle it as I pull myself to the other side. Buti na lang marami kaming kasabay.

Climbing the pipes and the Temple Run moment.

Temple run moment kaso wala naman hahabol.
small waterfalls along the way.
You need to climb the pipes to reach the the paved path it's a sign that you're minutes away from Ditumabo falls.

Welcome to Ditumabo Falls.

palpak na photo ops. hahahah!
According to the guides it rained  before the day of my Ditumabo adventure so the water is too strong, lots of water droplets(hamog/ange) everywhere mababasa ka kahit hindi ka magswimming, There's a guy who brought his dlsr to capture the beauty of Ditumado Falls but decided not too mababasa kasi camera nya.. Thankfully, we were able to get back tothe jump off point a lot quicker.

Thanks for viewing.

Marlboro Mountain - Sagada, Mountain Province

This is my 1st time joining a group so I'm a little bit excited for this one.


Marlboro Mountain is  more or less a thirty minute hike from a drop off point in Lamangan, being one of the highest points in town, it provides a great view of Sagada and its neighboring towns from high up.

How did we get there:

We rented a van going to the drop off point but I forgot how much it is since I'm not the one incharge in finding a transportation for our group.

Kuya Oscar, Ann, Jan, Jane and Jayciel.

At the Drop off Point:

So we started walking.

and walking


we rested for a while but it turned into a Photo ops.

End of the Trail:

A full 360 view of the mountain, hills and nearby terraces will surprise you when you reach the clearing.

And Unlimited Photo Opportunity!!
This my favorite
and also this one.

Additional Information:

* Marlboro Mountain is a good place for photographers

And if luck is upon you.

*You might see the wild horses of the Marlboro Mountain.
