Cambugahay and other waterfalls

Down some hundred steps from Lazi town’s main road is a scenery as magical as Siquijor’s mystical reputation.

The afternoon was progressing as we made our slow way down some stone steps that leads to Siquijor’s famous three-tiered Cambugahay Falls. The treads were evenly made with natural stones, probably procured from the river that feeds the waterfall.

The falls cascade all the way from a small rainforest above the mountains, some freshwater springs and watersheds.

Cambugahay Falls rises three times, by my estimate, in ten-foot increments from the lowest pool; which eventually snakes for another three kilometers down before emptying in the Bay of Lazi. The water is light turquoise green and looked very inviting.
