The good journey begin to the waterfall but it is not that easy as you think, terrain was quite steep and rough who meant that it was only passable to certain types of vehicle. Vehicle that is not off road capable such as van, sedan cars will be park 3 1/2 kilometers away from the waterfall next stop.

The trail going uphill natural shade is provided by mother nature, thanks to the towering trees standing tall at the mountain side, lush vegetation with wild pineapples and bamboo tree. Majestic and breath taking view of greens, touch of the fresh cool air and the melody of birds singing gives you a feeling of being free.  However, the path is narrow and steep and the journey is not as easy as you think. It's a wise choose to hire some local folks as your travel guide.

The Timmaguyyob waterfall is unique and different from other falls I’ve already seen. She has form two basin, first basin is elevated and separated from the second basin. First basin was too deep and narrow. 

Second Waterfall Basin

While the second basin below the falls is more wider than the first deeper basin. Perfect for a swim to feel the cold and refreshing water of the waterfall that surely refresh your body, this might be the best alternative for a beach.

The enchanting Tanawan falls also might interesr you! Update your travel list and add this place.

Kwebang Lampas at the White Sand Beach of Pagbilao Quezon

Kwebang Lampas Mouth
Puting Buhangin (White Sand) beach is place you really enjoy the sun, swimming on a clear water and walking on it's fine white sand.
Clear Blue Water

Along is the Kwebang Lampas were you need to cross meters away from the shorline, a rocky four feet deep saltwater to get into the cave opening. The only thing Kwebang Lampas has to offer to her visitor is a chilling temperature, perfect to chill your beverage.

Upon approach, coconut trees and two giant chimney of Pagbilao Power Plant first to greet the wanderer.

 It also stand as landmark were you can tell your near.
But as you get closer and closer to the shoreline, chimney evanescent in sight.

Tent's and score of people swimming on clear water near the boats
On the beach, number tents pitched along the shore, score of people hanging out  children, adult all are enjoying the gift of clear water.

Creepy Experience at Puting Buhangin and Kwebang Lampas.
Creepy Photo of Kwebang Lampas at night


We love to experience something creepy and out of this world stuff. And the Puting Buhangin and Kwebang Lampas has it's own version of super natural thing.


It's a wise choice to bring your own food, drinks and more important your own power bank, price tag are creepy, makes you experience a real goosebumps.

The first disappointing fact in that place was the fat lady who approached you with no respect to collect entrance fee's  that cost 50 pesos and the garbage that is scattered all over the place.

During the night, a score of jelly fish swim near the shore line, school of anchovies are also visible who hunt for food and a swarm of mosquitoes flying and patrolling the area. Sometimes, even in day light jelly fishes wading the clear water.

While the Kwebang Lampas is haunted with the creepy writing of names from the ill devilish people who have visited the cave. People like them have no respect on it's kind and the nature.
