|Careful slippery when wet!|
|Prologue to the main event!|
As we walked in closer to the mother falls, the sound of the bursting water and the fine mists in the atmosphere creates a relaxing effect on my tired body. The majestic Tinuy-an Falls, a masterpiece of nature, a playground for nature lovers, its picture perfect elegance is unique and indeed one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Philippines! Unfortunately, we were late and didn't make it to the spectacular rainbow which is also one of the main attraction in the place aside from the magnificent waterfalls itself.
|Mother Nature's masterpiece!|
It was an unforgettable experience to face courageously the strong downpour of water by riding the raft and go to the swimming ground and braved going through the mother falls. I swear I haven't done this in my entire life, and as I went through the curtain of flowing water I was gasping for air for it was dropping on my head in great volume! It was one hell of an experience and I think I'm going to do it again!
Well, it was my first trip in Mindanao, I never realized that I would see some of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the island which most of us aspires to see. Although the island has been marked with unfavorable reputation, it doesn't stop tourists from coming for we know it keeps a lot of natures treasures.
