Enchanting Kawasan

The discovery of nature's beautiful phenomena, the waterfalls, has given us nature lovers the pleasure to enjoy its beauty. The soothing sound and cool cascading waters, lure us to take a dip, swim, and get as close as we can with what it can offer. 

Trekking to Cebu's waterfalls, the Kawasan and Mantayupan falls, is a welcome escape from the sweltering heat in the city. In my opinion the waterfalls offers a much better reprieve from a hot day than the beach. Of course, it's less sunburn and far more relaxing just by listening to the melody of the running water, the chirping birds, and the hushing breeze. 

The image is of the Kawasan Falls at Badian, Cebu. It's approximately 2 to 4 hours away from Cebu City. A private vehicle or for hire is suggested especially if you are from an out of town. It takes 30 minutes trek from the highway to the first level, but no worries because once you get to the spot, your tired feet will certainly be soothed by the ice cool waters. It's best to go there early morning so you'll have enough time to trek the upper two levels. Be sure to be ready with your camera and be aware of your surroundings during the walk because there's just so much more to be awed on the way to the waterfalls. The river, the path, the wild chickens and flowers, the canopy of trees, the vibrant foliage, all form part of the Kawasan Falls charm.
