Lolong is not the only attraction in Bunawan Ecopark. As I roamed around the ecopark, I found this waterfalls just a few meters away from Lolong's cage. I went down the steep and slippery trail that leads to this small waterfalls. I saw two levels, the one on the upper portion is just cascading to a stream that leads to the lower portion of the falls.
The main falls looks like a mini Maria Christina Falls, with a stone at the middle that separates the flow of the water.
The water cascades and flows freely into a catch basin ten meter below. There is also a bamboo raft which you can ride to get near the waterfalls. At the time of my visit the area is being developed, probably as a swimming and picnic area for visitors.
I wanted to get a good shot of the falls, unfotunately I can't find the way to the front of the falls. :(
I left the ecopark clueless as to what's the name of this waterfalls is. So I searched for it on the net and I found out that it's called Masapya Falls.
This is another must-see attraction when visiting Bunawan Ecopark. Hopefully when I comeback here, all the amenities and attractions will be fully set-up. This will certainly boost Bunawan's eco-tourism potentials.
