Baler (#2): Trekking to Ditumabo FallsFriday, March 11, 2016
Our second itinerary was to go to the Ditumabo Falls, which is one of the tourist spots in the town of Baler. It is also locally known as The Mother Falls.

|The sound of the rushing water in the river was so relaxing. :)|
Along some parts of the river, we found water hoses, and (according to the sign on the rock xD) it seems like it is safe to drink. :D

It was only a short hike, but there are parts of the trail wherein you'll need to cross the river. Mental note: next time I come here, I will wear sandals or any open shoes. I was wearing my rubber shoes then (I still did not have my hiking shoes which I use during mountain climbing), and I had to remove them or else, they'd get wet. Our guide was kind enough to lend me his slippers. The consequence was - he walked barefoot for the rest of the trek. T^T (sorry kuya!)
After a few minutes of walking, we finally reached the falls!
It was so beautiful. This was the first time I've seen a falls up close. The splashing sound of the rushing water was very eminent, but it did not bother me. I just stared with awe on how strong the current was as the water fell down to the river. Mist was forming near the falls and cold water sprayed on our faces and body as we got nearer.
