I did not take a lot of pictures in the end of May.  :(  My friends have all the awesome photos from our waterfall trip. How did we get there?

  1. Take a 6AM van ride to Catarman (30 mins. to 1 hr.)
  2. Then take a 7AM jeepney ride to Allen (~1hr)
  3. Take 9AM jeepney to Calbayog (1hr)

  6. Do some bouldering rock climbing to get to this waterfall
