Tip: Even if you think you’ve got your itinerary all figured out, it still wouldn’t hurt to consult locals for suggestions. Of course, this is pretty much standard practice (especially if you’re a nosy and talkative person, lol) but part of this tip is being flexible as well in your travel plans. Now the latter might not always work to your favor but I’m so glad that in our case, we were able to squeeze in so much in our 2-day stay in southwest of Cebu. If I may just add the reason why that tip adds value? I didn’t read anything about a very poor data connection in Cebu (for my carrier at least) so befriending the guides was a good back-up plan for getting more information.
What initially was just a canyoneering and another waterfall sighting ended up with additional sunrise hike and one more fall visits. As this will be the last part of the Cebu-Kalanggaman series with posts here, here, here and here (sorry, there were just too many photos and videos and well, outfits lol), this will highlight the activities that were not covered in the previous posts.
Basac Falls. This falls is probably one of the unknown falls out of the hundreds that exists in Cebu. I like it coz we got to fly Jenny the drone here just fine and I enjoyed watching the young kids (with chiseled abs lol) jump from above the cliff. See more in the video.
Sunrise Hike at Osmena Peak. It was rather unfortunate that we woke up around 5am to find a foggy mountain peak. Hehe. It’s too bad because in the Instagram photos, the view is really amazing from up here with all the other islets of Cebu visible from the top. But the sunrise in itself was amazing. 🙂 I’ll try to be back here next time.
Cancalanog Falls. This by far has got to be my most favorite falls. It was originally part of my itinerary but the guides were persuading me against it because of the location. I believe they didn’t have a choice when I observed that it was on the way to the peak so I suggested we take a look on the way back. When we got there, the guides even had to ask around for directions down the falls because it was their first time!
I mean it’s odd because it’s a very charming heart-shaped waterfalls (as seen from the drone videos) and it’s not that hyped because it’s overshadowed by Kawasan. I mean I love Kawasan and all but I’m not a fan of crowded places so I really enjoyed my solo time a lot here.
And there you have it! Told you a prologue was needed! And that a week atleast is needed to see more of Cebu. 😀
