Tabili Catmon, Cebu. Since, none of my colleagues showed some interest in joining the adventure so I decided to post in on Facebook. Fortunately, my weekend recharge did not end up in a solo excursion.Β Image may contain: 4 people, people smiling, people standing, tree, child, outdoor and natureIt is my first time to do a river trekking so I am a little bit nervous. I have done Canyoning before so I believed that I can do this again. I was expecting that we will be climbing high mountains before getting to the falls, but yay! there was none. It is just a minor trek.

This is my second time in the town but I’ve never been this part of Catmon so I don’t know how the terrain looks like.

A few minutes of walking before getting to the first waterfall on where to start the river trek is just like a walk in the park then the trail becomes a little bit of physically suffering.

As we did down-streaming, there are several mesmerizing cascades along the trail. We need to scramble the huge boulders and have to grasp whatever object we can to avoid getting off balance.

River Trekking is a bit of a challenge and mostly you should need a gear or bring your own gear. But no worries, river trekking in Tinubdan FallsΒ is not that technical but to make sure we are always safe we need to have a guide master.

It is advisable to engage someone or hired a tour guide upon trekking because according to our guide during the activity. He personally experienced some mysterious happenings in the place.

Even as paychecks rise, more and more people are becoming “stressed out and they realize they need the weekend to recharge” through adventure or physical activity.
