Save the best for last! Our tour guide Kuya Glenn bring us to this secret place. It was closed not so long time ago but since he is somewhat close to the owner we infiltrate the place without permission. He affirms us that it’s really okay. And we go on; we walk for a short distance under the heat of the sun, we were tired already that time but upon reaching the place our exhaustion were gone in a snap. Why? Just check the pictures why.
Isn’t it breathtaking?
Isn’t it like a view from New Zealand?
Amazing! It’s the best way to end our Lakbay Ilocos Trip!
Once we finished our visit at the Bangui Windmills we visit our next stopover, the Blue Lagoon of Pagudpud. Kuya Glenn our tour guide said it is consider as the Secret Beach of the Ilocanos since the beauty of this is still unknown to others. You can witness its beauty even before reaching the place in an overlooking peak. There, you can view the Hollywood signage look alike “Hannah”, one of the resorts in the Blue Lagoon. When we reach the place, I was amazed how clean and beautiful it is. I felt like I was traveling outside the country. Here in Blue Lagoon, you can do a lot of water sports like surfing, skim boarding, jet skiing, banana boat ride and many more. As much as I want to learn to surf or skim board, our time is not enough. Instead we had our lunch in one of the grilling station at the Blue Lagoon. The foods they served are a little bit expensive but the taste and the serving size is worth it. If you’re a beach lover and love to try water sports, I suggest you allocate at least a day when visiting the Blue Lagoon of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte.
Another day for another trip, quite sad since it was our last day in Ilocos but I should say it was in fact memorable. We wake up early in a resort in Pagudpud, had our breakfast and off we go. I requested Kuya Glenn to bring us to Kaangrian Falls. I was fascinated when I saw a picture of this falls in the web however he said our time will be short if we’ll go there since you have to trek at most 10 kilometers just to reach the said falls. Instead he’ll bring us to this another falls named Kabigan Falls though we still need to walk around 1.8 kilometers from the national highway. I like walking or trekking if I’m on a trip else I’ll prefer to bike. Hahahahaha!
Together with my trippers, we started trekking around 9:00 in the morning to Kabigan Falls. What I like it here is they maintain everything as it is, no unnecessary constructions of pathways etc that kills the beauty of the nature. After an hour of trekking, we reached the Kabigan Falls. I’d visit and seen many waterfalls in our country but I would say it is one of the falls that has the clearest water ever. After minutes of picture taking, I quickly dive into the waters of Kabigan Falls then after an half of an hour we went trekking back. Thanks to my cousins April and Peachy for taking some snapshots! :)
Crystal Clear Water
It's like swimming in a pool of mineral water. hahahahaha! :)))
