It took us about 6 hours to get to Lake Sebu from Davao. The roads were smooth all the way and the views we got to see en route were a great bonus. It was almost 4 in the afternoon when we arrived at Punta Isla, our resort in Lake Sebu. After checking in, we decided to head to the waterfalls the municipality was famous for.
A short dirt road from Lake Sebu's town proper led us straight to the falls. Turns out there are 7 well known falls within close proximity of each other and the first two are just a few steps away from each other. Hikong Alu (meaning passage) or Falls #1 was easily accessible via a paved walkway from the parking area while Hikong Bente (Falls #2) can b e accessed via another nearby dirt road or if you are the more adventurous type, by descending down 700-plus steps path near the registration area.
They say there's a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow right? Do you think it was coincidence that the rainbow ends right smack in the middle of the lake? As one of the country's most important watersheds, I think that rainbow ended exactly where it should.
