The Twin Falls of Nagabi is one of the spots that I was really looking forward to visit during our 3-day exploration in Mount Talinis. I have thalassophobia and I also don’t know how to swim, but nevertheless, I love going to any waterfalls. The sound of the heavy downpour and the feel of cold water against your skin is deeply relaxing for me.
We were on our third day of trekking, and we were already comfortable of our whole situation. We didn’t even want to leave the place. I, myself, was enjoying everything. No internet, no distractions, just, pure uninterrupted reconnection with nature.
Right after we set off from Rancho, we immediately went straight to the Guard House, where we’d eat lunch and leave our stuff so we can proceed to the Twin Falls.
From the Guard House, you would only need to trek for about 15-20 minutes to reach the Twin Falls of Nagabi. I was spellbound the moment I reached the river. It was as if I was entering a rather magical world. Oh, the sweet smell of the moist mosses and the sight of the entangled trees was invigorating. It was the complete picture of a beautiful distant dream.
One of the reasons why I love the Twin Falls of Nagabi is that it is not easy to get there. It is situated in the middle of the dense forest of the Talinis mountain range, so you have to literally trek the mountain in order for you to reach there. That being said, only a few people can actually go there. Only those who are truly determined.
We had the two waterfalls by ourselves, so I definitely enjoyed everything. Sadly though, we did not get to stay there for a long time. It was about to rain and our guide warned us that it would be extremely hard to cross the river if the water goes up. So sad.
The Twin Falls of Nagabi is one of the best places you can visit when following the Apolong trail. It would be an absolute miss if you fail to visit the twin waterfalls while you are in there. I would like to commend the Cuernos De Negros Mountaineers and all forest guards in Mount Talinis for keeping this place as clean as it should be. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
