Chasing Mambukal's Seven (7) Waterfalls



This is a continuation of my travel posts about Mambukal Mountain Resort, a beautiful nature park located in Barangay Minoyan, Murcia, Negros Occidental.

On this post, I'll focus more on the best thing you can do while visiting this wonderful mountain resort: Climbing the 7 Waterfalls

My husband and I tried to go to the 7 waterfalls of Mambukal one afternoon. 

It was like walking in the middle of the jungle. There were Balete trees and huge boulders along the way. 


Then we passed by a long stream and several facilities for their canopy walk. We decided not to do them anymore coz we might not have enough time to go all the way up the 7th waterfall. 


First waterfall


Second waterfall

The climb was getting quite steep for me. I was breathing so heavily and was easily fatigued. Nevertheless, I continued hiking. Good thing I was wearing my rubber shoes. Flip Flops won't last in this kind of trail. If you're visiting, be sure to bring insect repellent as well. 

Third waterfall


Just before we went up to the 4th waterfall, it started raining. The climb up was getting more steep. We were afraid that if we didn't go down immediately, we might not be able to climb down safely, or worse, we might slip and break our bones. So, after resting a bit (I was already seeing stars too due to fatigue and being out of shape, LOL!), we went down. It was still an awesome feat to have reached the 3rd waterfall without a guide.Perhaps when we go to Bacolod this coming March, we'd be able to climb all the 7 waterfalls of Mabukal Mountain Resort. (^_^)
