People of Cagayan de Oro and near cities or municipalities – have you already gone to this beautiful 350-meter water fall drop in San Isidro, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental? I guess, there were only few who knows about Sagpulon falls because it’s not yet fully developed and the municipalities just announced the proposed construction last January 23, 2014 under the administration of Gov. Bambi Emano. The development project is worth 10 million pesos.
How to get there
It’s actually 35 – 45minutes away from the main road of Jasaan. You can reach the area by motorcycle call “habal-habal” and will cost 30 – 50 pesos per person from highway or if you’re from Cagayan de Oro you can ride a jeep (25 pesos) or thru bus (30 php + 3.00 terminal fee) from Agora terminal and tell the conductor to stop you at Spring view resort in Jasaan. From spring view resort, there are motorcycles that can bring you to Sagpulon falls. 🙂
When we got there it’s almost 5 PM that is why we haven’t got the chance to stay longer because the caretaker reminded us that the visitors would only allow to stay until 5 PM. Some said it has entrance fee but when we got there, the caretaker didn’t ask for an entrance fee. It’s almost 5 pm when we got there maybe that’s the reason. 🙂
Before going to the falls itself, you need to pass over there big rocks and be more adventurous upon crossing a river and cross the small bamboo bridge.
It was my first time to see a falls and I was so amazed, my eyes became big when I saw the falls right in front of me 🙂 Finally, we arrived. The falls is amazingly high and creates a strong current. We were surprised and had so much fun. We took a lot of pictures for us to remember how lucky we are to have this very wonderful creation of God.
Our trip wouldn’t be complete without this group picture. This falls creates a stamp in our heart and we are hoping that the Department of tourism would do something to make this place as one of the best tourist spot in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental.
Lastly, I forgot, thanks to our dear friend Rachel Valcorza for being our tour guide 🙂 and it was her birthday during the trip February 1 , 2015 🙂 so yeah. stay pretty :* Until the next adventure!
