Davao Del Norte - A Refreshing Freshwater Dip at Haguimit Falls

After visiting the friendly bats at the Monfort Bat Sanctuary, we asked our habal-habal drivers to drive us to Hagimit Falls.

Located at 2 kilometers away from PeΓ±aplata proper and around 45 minutes from the bat sanctuary, Haguimit falls is composed of small waterfalls with natural swimming pools and huge rock formations. A great place to just relax and take a dip on cold fresh water.

I was surprised to see different cascades of water coming from various little waterfalls. The water is clear that it appears aqua in color. I was also amazed on how we could just enjoy and relax sitting in the surging rapids with the cold water pounding our bodies.

It was a treat after travelling for 45 minutes on a habal-habal under the scorching heat of the sun. Hahaha!!!

The place is huge and not yet fully developed. However, cottages, restrooms and snack bars are available within the complex. I like it being undeveloped as it gives me a natural feel of the environment. Another great way to be one with nature.

This is another breath-taking spot worth visiting when spending a vacation is this lovely island.
