Palogtoc Falls

San Roque, Bulusan, Sorsogon
by lakwatserong tatay

After staying overnight in the town of Irosin, our group started the sunny going up to Bulusan and Rizal, Sorsogon.
To see the famous Bulusan Lake of Sorsogon, but of course, going up there is not as easy as that, with a kind of transportation we had bring. It was a difficult ride...hehehehe...But upo pursuing to Bulusan Lake, along the way of the road up to Bulusan Volcano Natural Park where Bulusan Park is also the start of the jumpoff for some mountaineer and backapackers want to conquer Mt. Bulusan. Photo opps is always been our priority.

Before we started to go uphill to Bulusan, there was a bridge that captured our sight. Maybe because the river does not have flowing water anymore but we have the nice view of Mt. Bulusan, and of course, photo opps is really nice set in place....so it started....This is the Rangas Bridge before going up to San Roque, Bulusan, Sorsogon. Below are some of our groups pix and one of them really get us laughed...hehehe...!!!! sorry po....joke...joke...

Thanks once again...for this perfect spot....

Remember what i have said earlier....just kidding around...just want to have a remembrance...

see.....
Upon going up hill, we reached the town of Bulusan, that is also part of Palogtoc Falls, This falls is right beside the road up to Bulusan Volcano Natural Park. This signage by the road can't be missed because it is few kilometers before reaching the Bulusan Volcano Natural Park.

Aside from that you can see left side of this pathway to Palogtoc Falls. A store where you buy some products and display souvenirs made of Volcanic Ash Products. We were lucky that time to see some actual product while lolo is making one of his product.

go...go...lolo...
Palogtoc Falls also known as Palogtok Falls. A small waterfalls fills this man-made earthen swimming pool where the gurgling water flows from just a few feet upon the hillside. It is actually just a mini-water fall but the coolness of its spring water is really sweet and refreshing. It can be reached after a 15-20 minutes leisure walk through rolling hills carpeted with green grass under a canopy of tall coconut trees and some pili trees also present along the trail. This is situated within the area of Masacrot Spring - an alternative choice also to suit your taste, just in case. This mini-waterfalls has also an entrance as i remember it was P20/head, but that time we did not pay entrance because we just go their to take some photos for our remembrance. Below are some of our photographs while our leisure going to the mini waterfalls.

Of course, we may not going to swim on this pool but we didn't forget to try to get wet and feel the cold spring water of this falls. It is really true that is really cold and refreshing water.

Even it just a few minutes of stay. It was indeed fun and also remarkable because it is the first time of one of our co-xplorer jayson "d eagle" to try to do mini hike...hehehe...so what do you think jayson...you will join us in our backpacking activities...
it is thumbs up...
So stay tuned for the next adventure......The Bulusan Natural Volcano Park and One of the Sorsogon's Pride, The Bulusan Lake.
