Experience Lulugayan Falls As Samar’s Mini Niagara Falls

The Philippines will never run out of waterfalls. Our country is made up of different kinds of bodies of water. These waters connects us and make our country as it is. I have seen so many waterfalls before in my other trips. But whats interesting with this particular waterfalls is that people say that it’s actually a mini Niagara falls in Visayas.

Going to Canada just to see the Niagara falls will take you long days and nights. I am surprised to know that we have these kinds of falls here in the Philippines. Indeed, our country has so much to offer.

Adventurers and explorers will definitely love this place because of its serene and peaceful view.

When we visited Samar, we stayed at Lola Rosa Bed and Breakfast Inn in Calbiga. It only took us 30 minutes to reach the Lulugayan Falls point from our Inn. But before reaching the main visitor’s lounge of Lulugayan Falls, we noticed that the roads are still under construction so we needed to ride a truck to reach Lulugayan point. You have two options to reach the point. If you are travelling in a group, you can ride the truck. You can also choose to ride their local motorcycle called the habal-habal.

From the visitor’s point, the tour guide first made a few history and background of the Lulugayan Falls. When we visited the falls, its actually kind of slippery so we need to be more careful. From the point, you will walk to reach the Lulugayan Falls. It will only take you 15-20 minutes.

Upon seeing the Lulugayan Falls, mini huts are being constructed within its area. They are actually getting ready for the world to see this beautiful work of art. We enjoyed the cold water touching our feet as we go near it. It really looked like a smaller version of Niagara Falls. It has a 20 meter stretch from its sides. Unfortunately, when we went there, we weren’t allowed to go at the top of the falls because its too slippery. But by just looking at it made me feel blessed and accomplished.
