Adventures nowadays are highly in demand for everyone who loves to explore different places as a way of discovering and de-stressing themselves from their daily routines. I just created a facebook page called GEN’S ADVENTURES, https://www.facebook.com/GENS-Adventures-1805590469515010/ where i invited 30 adventurers to explore the town where i live. And one of the main goal of the said event is to make the town more familiar because i believe that through these people who accepted my invitation, the word will spread from one to another. As i said before, Pinamungajan is a coastal town located at the midwest part of cebu and is not so familiar by many travelers and i want to help to make the town to become known or familiar by many.
It was last sunday when these adventurers visited the town.They are from diffrent teams such as TRIBU HUBO or highly united brotherhood of outdorsmen,TEAM KALAIN or litterally means kaon(eat)LAKAW(walk)INUM(drink),and the rest of the participants are beginners from diffrent cities.Our target spots to explore are Camangon cave, Odlum falls, and Busagak falls.The event is included with fare,lunch,and tour guide fee.Each participant is only paying 450 .00 pesos which is quite cheap, compared to others who offered tour packages because for me ,its better to be cheaper for many than expensive for few.
We agreed that the meeting time will be at 7 am in front of municipal hall. But not everyone arrived at 7 am anyway so we had to wait the rest of the joiners. It was 8.00 o’clock when i started the orientation regarding the rules and regulations; what are the DO’S & DONT’S inside the cave, safety and everything.
It was 8:30 am when we left to Lamac for caving and chasing Odlum falls. Everyone is riding a motorbike and i was riding with Steve. I was crossing my fingers that the event will be successful because the weather is not really okay, rainy and slippery plus the road on the way to lamac is like a peanut butter; very muddy. Good thing these drivers are really good in slippery road so none of us get hurts and we arrived safely to Lamac. Later the cave tour guide (JUN) arrived and since we cannot get into the cave in one go,we agreed to be in batches ,so the first 10 batch went with Jun and the rest went with me to Odlum falls. I never know that there are 3 people left behind and i only noticed it when they texted me that they were on the way. I’m glad there were 2 personnel from the Barangay who sent them to the falls and i meet them there.
The first batch was done on caving and i can see their happy faces after they saw those sparkling Stalactites and Stalagmites in the cave, same as the last two batches who went into the cave.They are all amazed, like they were never out of words of impression about the view inside the cave that everywhere you look is sparkling and spectacular. Just simply amazing.
It was a bit late so we headed back to the poblacion for lunch.Everyone had their tummy filled in with the foods that i prepared before i left the house . And since it was 2 o’clock in the afternoon, there are few of the teams who , due to time constraints, cannot make it to the other waterfalls, but they are going back to the city instead so its like half of the participants who stayed and went with me to Busagak falls. We hiked for about an hour and a half then we wasted no time; we swim and take pictures for 30 minutes then headed back to Poblacion again. It was a bit dark when we arrived to Poblacion, but others want to change so i brought them to tourism office so atleast they can meet the head of the tourism of Pinamungajan; Yogi Ygay.
7:00 o’olock in the evening when everyone went back to the city, and i was left at the tourism office, sitting and thinking, I cant believe that my first event was successful, that everyone went home with good memories of the day . SO DID I !!! 🙂
I will make another event soon and it will be open for everyone again for those who want try to explore that sparkling camangon cave, 300 ft Odlum falls and naturally green water of busagak falls.
Also i will include the campalabo sandbar; with itineries , inclusions at a very affordable rates.
