At the mention of water, my mind goes to this place — Mambukal Mountain Resort, Negros Island, Philippines. It’s a place where the Negrenses and tourists alike rejuvenate one’s spirit and get in touch with Mother Nature.
There is so much water here. According to our tourist guide, a big mountain stream descends in a series of seven waterfalls and cuts through the center of the resort, feeding the water holes and boating lagoon.
Swimming is discouraged in the boating lagoon because it is just 9 feet deep and 36m x 23m wide.
This pool is chlorinated. It has a wading area that divides the 3-ft kiddie pool and 5-ft adult pool.
No one is allowed to swim here. There is a huge sign that says CAUTION: HOT SULFUR NO SWIMMING.
Excitement builds up when you see this before you get to the First Waterfalls.
Alas, I need more energy to see the other five waterfalls. I told my husband that I was starving and that my remaining strength was sufficient to get myself down from the Second Waterfalls to the food court.
NOTE: All the photos above were captured by my Samsung camera phone.
NOTE TO SELF: Next time, bring a good camera for better pictures… and don’t go up to see the falls in noon time. 😉
