Tres Marias trail is endowed with beautiful and pristine waterfalls no one can resists to indulge the beauty and refreshment it offers to one’s eyes. From Aeta camp site, the trekkers descent going back to the jump off on the same trail passing through the 3 stunning falls we’ve seen on the previous day. This time we had the change to explore what the waterfalls offers.
The falls is named after a Cebu-based group who was among the first to explore the mountain. It has an excellent pool for swimming – an excellent place to take a dip.
Everyone had their own way of enjoying the place. While some had their picture taken, others are taking a quick dip. They did not stay long as others are saying that it’s possible to have snakes in there.
After several minutes, we packed up and continued hiking. The challenged includes leaping from one rock after another to cross the stream wherein some rocks are mossy, have to be alert for snakes (we found half a meter length green viper), and have to protect ourselves from bees. Charina and Tin did not escape from the bite of the bees. Good thing Kring’s husband has antihistamine.
The falls is just few meters above Ulan-Ulan falls. Some of us had a quick dip while others proceeded their way to Ulan-Ulan falls.
This is the highest and most majestic among the tree falls. It offers a whisper of sprinkled shower of natural water and a gentle touch of the wind, thus named “Ulan-ulan” or “Uma-ambon-ambon” in tagalog.
The group enjoyed the time in the falls up until 4PM and continued our way going to the jump off for our next side trip adventure to Sambawan island.
