The Majestic Beauty of Dagulos Cold Spring in Kimaya, Jasaan

Dagulos Cold Spring may be unknown to some people. As of this time, only a few vloggers mention and visit the place. Perhaps, the COVID-19 pandemic does not allow them to visit the area due to some travel restrictions and temporary business closures. Nonetheless, others can make reservations for hangouts and relaxations. Well, this cold spring has been here all along. It only demands attention among local and foreign tourists alike. For instance, when we go along the rocky road to the place, we grow surprised to see  and notice some root crops nearby. In the distance, we, as well, see some massive vegetation that keeps us close to nature. The lush-green coconut trees and the mountain trees give us a sense of home as we go along the cold spring. Regardless of the time of hiking and the short walk, Dagulos Cold Spring enthralls us because of its natural landscape.

As we can do whatever we want, we definitely refrain ourselves from littering. We do not throw our trash everywhere. As we dive into the crystal clear of the cold spring that nature gives us, we have to take good care of it, at least.

Oh, are we excited now? Are we going to ask Misamis Oriental Journal to give us the map to Dagulos Cold Spring? Well, Dagulos Cold Spring is in Kimaya, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental.

From this angle, we can see the buttery bacon and the fresh leaf of lettuce with a bread bun on top. Isn’t this food too watery to put it into our mouths where the buttery bacon will slide down from our hungry-mouth to the side of our lips? Well, we may find it satisfying to listen to the crunchy and fresh lettuce the moment we nibble at the cheesy butter in it. It tastes yummy, right? 

Well, this one tastes fresh and healthy. We can eat these vegetables without complaining because those ones give us good health. The slice of cucumbers and tomatoes and the freshly cut lettuce and other green leafy vegetables give us a bowl of goodness and health.

I presume that everyone in the area of Cagayan de Oro knows where the Magnum Radyo is. When we get there, we book our trip right away. If we want an early-morning adventure, we need to go to the Magnum Radyo Ticketing Office for its Carpool Service at Lim Ketkai Mall probably at 5 AM so that we can travel at 6 AM and arrive at our destination between 7 AM and 8 AM.

Bukidnon Falls: Our waterfall-hopping adventure

The province of Bukidnon has been labeled as the high-ground paradise in the core of Mindanao. As a landlocked domain in the Philippines with its abundance of flora, Bukidnon has become the place where people get food crops and other harvests in the Northern Mindanao region. Malaybalay, as the capital city of Bukidnon, flourishes and grows because of its agricultural GDP source. As an interior and noncoastal region, it borders with Misamis Oriental, Agusan del Sur, Davao del Norte, Cotabato, Lanao del Sur, and Lanao del Norte. However, Bukidnon as the center of Mindanao has become the rice bowl, fruit, and vegetable basket in Region X. Despite that amazing description, Bukidnon has amazing waterfalls to attract more tourists.

An Eye-Catching Backdrop in Bukidnon at the Heart of Mindanao

Laligan Falls

Local tourists can witness the beauty of nature and the grandeur of Bukidnon once they will visit Barangay Laligan, Valencia City. They can see and even experience another concealed charm of Bukidnon, the four-series cascading waters of Laligan Falls. Many tourists do not know exactly where it is and if it exists, but Laligan Falls stands right there waiting for local trekkers to explore.

An Intriguing Swim Here – Alalum Falls for us to Visit

Alalum Falls

Alalum falls gives a towering 148-foot high cascading water near the main road. Bordered by lush undergrowth with a viewing top deck, Alalum Falls in Kisolon, Sumilao in Bukidnon attracts us with wonder. It positions itself along the main highway in-between Impasug-ong and Sumilao municipalities. The story tells that Alalum falls as the soaring waterfall was once an iconic holidaymaker destination of Bukidnon Province.

An Awesome Curtain Waterfall in Bukidnon – Balisbisan Falls

Balisbisan Falls

Balisbisan falls is located at Sitio Kibangan Road, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon. Its water source does not come from the river. The water comes from the files of rocks in which it flows from them. As mentioned, the water, which sprouts from the rocks, forms like curtains.

An Amazing Cedar Falls in Bukidnon – A Perfect Site to Swim

Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls is in Impalutao, Impasug-ong, Bukidnon. It has three major falls namely; Gantungan Falls, Natigbasan Falls, and Dila Falls plus a swimming pool. Local tourists can reach the site less than an hour of hiking. As well, the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Impasug-ong, Bukidnon developed the place and made Cedar Falls a reforestation project. Cedar Falls becomes an eco-park. This reforestation project has a land area of around 1,703 hectares that give us a cold spring, unsoiled river, tempting cold spinning pool, natural woodlands, progressing mountains, and Cedar waterfalls.

Katubhan Falls and Mat-I Falls: Gifts of nature

The status quo that people face has altered our ways of life. It has controlled us to express our thoughts, made all of us stay at home, and turned our lives into a boring state. Of course, we have paid attention to the very subtle details of the given policies and rules from the local and national governments. However, we have been close enough to surrender. We have become tired of waiting to end this crisis. We have lost everything as we have not fully adapted to the so-called new normal. We have become crazy in a way that we do not know what to do. We just buy pots and plant plants. Others tend to resort to playing mobile legends; whereas, some turn into Netflix. And yet, we have known that some of our friends had to find ways to survive. We drive tricycles like Eric Fructuoso, sell Siomai like Ate Gay, and retail fruit gummies like me. And then, we have become tired of doing this over and over again that we have lost our chances to unwind. Since this pandemic comes near its end, I hope so, we should consider finding ways to unwind. Perhaps, we can go camping beside the hills, swimming in the pool, trekking into the hilly forest. If we do some of these adventure activities, perhaps, we can eliminate the trails of stress and the remnants of frustration that the present condition showers on us. How about going to Katubhan and Mat-I Falls?

A Glorious Wonder of Nature in Claveria, Misamis Oriental

Location of Katubhan falls and Mat-i falls

Katubhan falls and Mat-i falls, which are the twin falls, are located at Barangay Mat-i, Claveria, Misamis Oriental.

A Magnificent Spot for Artistic Pictorial in the Falls in Claveria, Misamis Oriental

How Do We Get There

We only take one hour and thirty minutes to go to Claveria if we are from Cagayan de Oro City. Here is what we do.

    1. We need to communicate with the Claveria Tourism Office first.
    2. Next, we have to hire our local guides. As recommended by Sir Jhong, we can choose either Ar-Ar Abrogar with his mobile phone dial 09755496786 or Kokong Bear Andam with his mobile phone dial 09059610895. We only pay ₱00 for the tour guide fee for 10 trekkers.
    3. From Agora Terminal, Cagayan de Oro, we take an air-conditioned van bound to Claveria for only ₱00. We expect 1 hour and 30 minutes to arrive at the destination.
    4. Then, we meet our local guides in Claveria. Once we do, we take bao-bao, dulog, tuktok, tri-cab, or whatever you call it, going to Barangay Mat-i. Each trekker will pay ₱00 per person. We spend 30 minutes in Mat-i Town.
    5. Moreover, we have to be ready and prepare for our knees because we have to hike downhill so steep that we need to take a pause. This descending trek to the falls seems perfect for those adventurous persons.
    6. As well, we cross the river as we head toward the falls. As we cross and trek the river, we make sure we have waterproof bags to keep our belongings dry since we expect the river to be knee-deep level.
    7. Since we food corner shops are unavailable, we have to bring our food and water.
    8. As responsible trekkers and citizens, we bring our trash bags to keep those food wrappers and others as we maintain the area to be clean. We do not need to leave our trash in the site to preserve sanitation around the waterfalls and anywhere in the vicinity.
So, How About Gesturing Our Hands as a Sign of Fulfillment! Please Visit Claveria Today.

So, if we are ready, we set the timetable and make things possible. We would like to thank the following people: AboutCagayandeOro.Com, Sir Jhong, and the Pack of Wolves, as well as the Claveria Tourism Office and Tour Guides.

Sipaka Heights: A perfect embrace of nature

Unwinding ourselves from everyday pandemonium helps us resolve some issues of our wellbeing. When we say health, we consider emotional, mental, and physical issues. We only want to relax just a little bit to end our common and everyday fiasco at home, in school, at work, and in the community. Our friends are correct when they invite us to wind down just a little bit and take their time to be happy. However, we often refuse to take our time because we feel like being edgy and overwrought due to the current predicament in the world. On the contrary, we all have the options to make. We can do all things within our grasp. We are in control. We just don’t mind all forms and shapes of stress that exist around us. We have to take a break. In other words, we have to pause for a moment from what we are doing. We, now, imagine how we can reduce the stressful situations that we are getting into the day-to-day mayhem. When our friends invite us to go somewhere else, somewhere exciting, we need to grab such opportunities and pack our bags. We have to unwind. When our friends ask us to go with them to Sipaka Heights, that’s the time when we say we better get going.

We are passengers who always travel and make the most of our lives. Look around us. What is happening? Is it worth waiting for miracles that everything gets normal and government officials give us a good life? No, it’s not. We have had enough for all these gibberish political dramas and lies. So, we firmly take our chances to enjoy ourselves from the miracles of nature. We have to live and re-live every moment that we have. We don’t exactly know when we stop breathing. At least, we enjoy traveling around the places where we love most. Indeed, we need to go to Sipaka Heights.

Beautiful Spots Where We Can Drink, Eat, and Focus Our Cameras for Pictorials

What’s more, Sipaka Heights has all that we need. We can absolutely feel the blowy atmosphere plus the wind-swept environment. We can, also, smell the great scent of the ocean wind. We can, furthermore, feel the warm embrace of the sun while spending everything all night long at Sipaka Heights. Known as the diving spot in Talisayan, Sipaka Heights puts a landmark of the site. Lovely as it is, we can enjoy the view of Camiguin since Sipaka Heights allows us to glance the Camiguin Island. Also, we can have a remarkable experience if we plan ahead of time. In doing so, we have to contact the local tourism office in Talisayan. We can ask if we can hire a local tour guide to help us reach the destination safely.

A Breathtaking Experience in the Pictorial of a Lifetime at Sipaka Heights

Oh, before we forget, Sipaka Heights is a hill. This mountain extends to the sea. As seen on the photos provided by Explore Misamis Oriental PH, we will feel awed and get surprised by the outstanding view of the shorelines and the foothills nearby. Did we mention that we are from Cagayan de Oro? Yes, we did. From Cagayan de Oro, we take two (2) hours to travel to the widely held holidaymaker or traveler destination in the province. We don’t need to worry about the stress of going there. The soothing scenery rewards us to witness the beauty of nature, allows us to go for a boat tour, and then swim in the astounding white beaches around the area.

Bulyok Falls: Naawan’s amazing pride to visit

Bulyok Falls as Naawan’s amazing pride to visit exceeds our expectations. Naawan, Misamis Oriental gives us an astonishing fall nearby. We get to know Bulyok Falls in Naawan, Misamis Oriental as it gives us crystal clear water to quench ourselves. We also get to gratify ourselves because of the cool and refreshing falls that Naawan offers. With its 5 to 7 feet depth, Bulyok Falls is popular among local travelers like us. Of course, we can spend our holidays and weekends diving into the revitalizing waters of Bulyok Falls once in a while.

This nature adds beauty to our province, our country, and our planet in general. We just need to spend our time living our lives to the fullest. We just don’t live for work, pay our bills, and die. We exist here on Earth to be happy. So, we stop gossiping, hurting, lying, and rumor-mongering, as well as assassinating their characters behind their backs. We have to remember that we are passengers here on Earth. We can’t stay forever. Since we have a limited life span here on Earth, we have to spend our remaining days and nights or months and years fulfilling our longing for adventure and traveling around places and the world in general.

We’ve been telling our readers from our previous narratives that traveling has always been fun. Yes, it has been fun. We don’t have to be bitter or even negative looking at things around us.

We just set our plans, prepare for a few dollars or pesos, and pack our things to get ready for adventure. If we do this, we understand how important it is to commune with nature and embrace the beauty of nature, as well as travel.

Eleaga Camping Resort: An amazing escapade

Davao City, which is quite remote from Misamis Oriental, offers some spectacular sites for holidaymakers and travelers like our visit. One of these sites where we love to sojourn is Eleaga Camping Resort. Perhaps, this resort site fascinates us because of some activities to make merry. As well, this nature-like and can’t-miss resort is at Camp Eleaga, Lake Macaduhong, Malabog, Davao City. We can have day tours or overnight stays if we want. Eleaga Camping Resort has tree-houses and close cottages if we want privacy. If we bring food and beverages, the resort does not charge any corkage fees. Of course, that makes sense at all.

Eleaga Camping Resort provides some amenities fishing areas, life jackets for rafting, affordable food services, and videoke machines for sing-a-long moments. It charms its guests and visitors various activities, such as fishing carps and other freshwater fish, diving into the pool, and bamboo rafting. While doing these activities, our loved ones and friends can prepare food there and cook some tribal-style gastronomies or homegrown cuisines.

How about Diving into the Powdered-Blue Swimming Pool

Well, we’re talking about the rates.

    • Day Tour Charge – ₱30.00
    • Overnight- ₱80.00
    • Use of the Treehouses – ₱500.00 For Overnight
    • Use of the Close Cottages ₱300.00 for Day Tour
    • No Corkage

How about amenities?

    • Eleaga Camping Resort offers videoke services. Since there is no curfew of videoke, we need to minimize the sounds from 9 PM onwards. If some tourists come and spend overnight, they have to stop singing until 9 PM and pay respect to others. If many choose to stay overnight, we have to end the videoke sessions at 9 PM to let others take rest.
    • As well, we can go fishing if want to grill some fish. We just need to bring with us our fishing gear if we wish to catch some fish. Once we get some fish, we kilo it. We have to pay ₱100.00 a kilo for freshwater fish. If we go rafting, we have to use a life jacket worth ₱100.00 an hour.
    • Additionally, Eleaga Camping Resort provides us with a reasonably priced and sumptuous food on the table. However, if we are not in the mood to cook, we ask the resort to cook for us. We just need to pay for the cooking service fees.
    • Moreover, we can buy something to take home. Perhaps, we can select several memento items to bring at home. If we want pure wild honey, the key chains, and many others, we can have any of them.
Well, We Can Definitely Swim in the Pool. However, We Cannot Swim in the Lake without a Bamboo Raft…

How do we get there?

If we reach Davao City, we take an L3 van or any Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) or Jeepney to Calinan. Then, we need to ask the driver to drop us off at Gaisano Grand Mall.

From Gaisano Grand Mall, we need to look for a single motorcycle good for 2-3 persons to save money. We have to tell the motorcycle drivers that we need to go to the place Camp Eleaga so we can witness the grandeur of Malabog Lake. Well, we just have to ask the driver regarding the fare for a one-way drive. The last time when we checked the one-way ride was ₱300.00 for one motorcycle. If we include the back fare, we have to pay another ₱300.00. Of course, this situation is an adventure, we do expect of the bumpy ride due to the rock-strewn road. However, it will be even nicer for us if we ride on a four-wheel-drive vehicle like SUV or any vehicles to get there.

What’s more, some local tourists highly commend Eleaga Camping Resort for Team Buildings, Family Occasions, and other activities. For us, we consider it just fine. The flowing water from the lake is clean. The management of the resort guarantees that the pool is clean. In other words, the management cleans the pool every day. Oh, before we forget, we highly appreciate the friendly and accommodating customer services, too. If we ask the signal there, Globe gives us the Fourth-Generation (4G) Signal. We can contact the management through this mobile phone dial at 09128889387. Oh, did you ask if the place is safe? Well, what we know is that Police Officers do station around 300 meters to secure the area. Therefore, we are safe.

P.S. Fees may vary.

Don Narciso Café: A spectacular scenery to visit

Months ago, my friends invited me to go to Claveria. I asked them why I had to go to Claveria where I could spend my days and nights at home. The physical distancing regulations and the stay-at-home policies were underway, and these rules compelled me to remain immobile. Of course, I was afraid that police officers would catch me in the open when my only reason for going out was to have some fun. I knew police officers would be mad at me knowing that I would only find places to enjoy while the rest were struggling and suffering from the crisis. Besides, fines, once being caught, were high. As a result, I had to stay at home and waited for the COVID-19 pandemic to subside.

A wonderful site of Don Narciso Cafe in Claveria, Misamis Oriental

Conversely, the pandemic has been plaguing the country and the world as well. It has been pushing me to extend my patience. It made me feel even sicker and more bored than usual. Some of my friends back home died because of depression, mental torture, and stress. Without anything on a table due to no food, no job, and no medicine and without any support from the government, some of my friends perished. They died in vain. Even if the national government and the local government helped the people, there were a few officials who failed to show compassion and humanity. They supported their rich friends, or they only helped those people whom they knew. Anyway, I should move on to the present situation. I had to change my perspective in life. I could not turn back times, and we have been in this together. So, I took my chances to go outside and to enjoy just a little bit. I put my face mask on, wore my eyeglasses, and packed all my traveling apparels. Then, I contacted other friends to fetch me. Here they came. With their traveling garments on, we rode in a rented van going to Claveria to try to eliminate the stress and unwind just a little bit.

Customers in a Stunning View of Don Narciso Cafe in Claveria, Misamis Oriental

Traveling has been fun. It seemed that my friends and I just traveled back in time. While traveling, I let go of my musings that evoked my childhood experiences. However, I managed to return to my realities when other friends told me that we were in Claveria then. Yes, we were in Claveria. With more than a few minutes of traveling down the road to Claveria’s main site, we gladly reached it. Then, we head to Janopolan Nature Spring and Pool to Jaco’s Stopover, Claveria View Deck, and then awesome place Don Narciso Café. I felt impressed and overwhelmed seeing the panoramic view. Claveria’s mountainous site and its cold and freezing atmosphere permitted us to get off the van. So, we stopped right there, ordered some delicious and nutritious food, and got amazed by the splendor of the overlooking and mountainous area.

A Delightful Taste of a Nutritious Food at Don Narciso Cafe

Additionally, Don Narciso Café has been awe-inspiring. Its food service, food taste, and view did, however, spell magic in me. I just loved the food and the vista that other tourists adored. In the back of mind, I realized that the province of Misamis Oriental constantly charmed those local and foreign travelers with gripping tourist attractions. This province gave vacationers some stunning sites that showcased eye-catching destinations for travel. Just like other provinces and regions, local businesses and local governments worked hard to promote their provinces. This time, the management of Don Narciso Café thrived in promoting Claveria and Misamis Oriental as well. As a result, numerous motorists and holidaymakers, who took Route 955, could stopover at Don Narciso Café for breakfast meals and snacks. As well, Don Narciso Cafe served some pasta, loaves of sandwiches, cups of coffee, and smoothies, as well as other cold drinks.

At this point, going outside to breathe and inhale fresh air helped us survive from boredom and depression. It even made us feel alive again. The COVID-19 pandemic has made us vulnerable to emotional and psychological illness because we just imprisoned ourselves in the four corners of our rooms. Psychologically, the physical distancing guidelines and the stay-at-home policies have made me ill. Some of my friends have just died because of depression, heart and panic attacks, and stroke. For me, I had to save myself. I had to go outside to breathe fresh air in the mountains. Since Don Narciso Café is open, I have to remove my boredom and stress. For all of us, if we considered that going outside would be beneficial, we could go to Don Narciso Café at Route 955, Lanise, Claveria, Misamis Oriental.

Furthermore, we could cherry-pick the best food they served:

Finally, we can go to View Deck and then head toward Don Narciso Café for more than two-and-a-half-kilometer ride. It meant that we could have twice excitement and fun. If we wished to contact the owner, we could dial their mobile phone dial at 0917 708 5025 for possible booking and reservation, perhaps. Regardless of where we were, we could go directly to Claveria by using Google Maps, simple as it would be.
