Exploring Baler Part 2

Tibag Sabang Bridge

A suspension bridge on top of the Tibag Sabang River with its waters flowing out to the sea. My cousins really want to see and cross this bridge so I gladly went with them. But, I also told them that I’ll just wait for them after their exploration.

To cross or not?

But, my cousins do not want to leave me behind, so they urged me to go first. My heart was beating wildly. I was really nervous and the bridge was swaying because of the wind from the sea. Then I thought, “This is a very good chance for me to overcome my fear of heights. And I might be able to talk to somebody on the other side of the bridge and share the good news that I have… Hmm, think positive, I can do this!” So off I went.

At first I was looking straight ahead so I can quickly reach the finish line (or the other end), but then the scenery was so inviting, I had to look at the opposite sides and admire the view and breathe in the fresh air. I’m glad I took this challenge and braved crossing the hanging bridge twice 🙂

Ditumabo Mother Falls in San Luis 

Another tourist destination is the “Mother Falls”, this is a 20-minute trek going to the majestic falls.

After walking for some time, we decided to take a short rest while one of my cousins took the opportunity to talk to and share some biblical publications to one of the volunteers in maintaining the cleanliness of this tourist spot. Then we continued walking …

Upon seeing the falls, I forgot that I was really tired of walking and crossing parts of the riverbed. It was really fascinating. There is so much power and intensity as I looked at the falls. The air is fresh and the surrounding is really cool. 🙂 Some tourists are even taking a dip and enjoying swimming in the natural pool carved by the strong and rushing flow of water.

It was really nice seeing two beautiful spots in Baler. I always find it worth the walk under the scorching heat of the sun just to see these wonders. I don’t know if I’ll be able to visit these remarkable places again in the future, but I was sure happy to have experienced them. 🙂

Next, is my favorite – our adventure in Dicasalarin Cove :). Stay tuned!

  1. What a wonderful adventure you had. I’m afraid that I would not have crossed that bridge, just in case I couldn’t go back to the other side.. Congrats on being so brave and enjoying the beauty around you. Your pictures of the day were outstanding and I Thank you kindly for sharing them with us here on Word Press.
