The smell of earth, sweet chirping of birds,relaxing fresh air and the sound of- a waterfall? Yes, a hidden falls! 🌊
I heard about Malibiclibic falls via college friend who had an environmental project and needs to go there to document the place. She invited me to come with her and I was quite reluctant at first because I’ve been drinking over the past week but eventually I gave in. So here’s my unexpected trek to the mysterious waterfall.
Today I will be sharing with you one of my exciting adventures here in the Philippines! It’s my province’s hidden gem and is located at Bailen, Cavite.
You ready? Let’s go!
I know you’re just as curious as I am, why is it called “Malibiclibic”?
I have to be honest, I still don’t know as of this moment. We (including my friend) are still wondering how did it got its name. What we all know is that there are rivers connecting from different cities of Cavite which made this hidden waterfall possible.
We started the day at 9am (Yeah it was pretty late-because of me) and we managed to get there at around 12noon (three hour trip inclusion of getting lost and eating snacks).
We were told to drop off at the Municipal Hall of Bailen so we went there. After we spoke to one of the representatives of the area, we then proceeded to go to the place by a yellow trycicle.
After helping my friend take photos of the hidden falls, we decided to take a dip. The falls is very deep so we were warned not to swim in the middle.
I didn’t get photos of us hiking up the place because its too slippery to go up and I’m too scared to think of me and my friend rolling back to the falls until night. Haha!
And we made it back! Yay!
I will never forget this place. It’s worth the effort. The people in charge are very friendly and nice. I just hope tourists who visit the hidden falls don’t throw garbage anywhere and keep the place just as it is. Til next time, Malibiclibic Falls!
PS: If you’re planning to visit this place, make sure to bring trekking shoes because it gets slippery even if it’s not raining. And please bring eco-bags where you can put your trash! 🙂
For my next adventure post, I will be sharing with you my experience in Baguio City, Philippines!! Stay tuned!
