Sitting quietly in an unspoiled forest, there lies a cascading waterfall that is surrounded by luscious green, vegetation, tall, enchanting trees, and flourished with the sound of nature that you once heard in a “How to relax” audiobook. Hagimit Falls is a small waterfall with several natural pools of cool, aqua water, gifted in the island of Samal.

Only two kilometers away from the Penaplata proper, this little wonder can be accessible via motorcycle, car, or if you must, a semi-long trek.

 Hagimit Falls Rocky Spring – a few minutes of trekking will enable you to be in a more quaint environment. This is your time to be in a relaxed state, to adore the beauty of nature, and to listen to the soothing splash of water from the nearby waterfall.

 One of the few simple beauties of this place.

 This was not the first time I saw a waterfall. The last time I went on a trip, I was glancing on to a cooler, along-the-road kind of falls. It was in Negros Occidental. 🙂 But the Hagimit Falls show more than just one. It even paves the way for possible camping and recreation along the riverbank. Don’t you just love nature?
