After my long journey in the road,I’ve finally arrived at Tboli Tourism office and paid for registration fee of 20 pesos.Tourism staff discussed a brief guidelines before heading your way to jump-off point. You’ll be also given an option what trail would you prefer: KULE TRAIL and SALACAFE TRAIL(easy).  Once done, a habal-habal would bring you to the starting point which takes about an hour—quite strenuous road trip.

I reached the campsite around 5am and the rain started to fell down.A local offered me a cup of native coffee and  sat near them to had a conversation. All throughout the chitchat,I was awestruck by the lake’s natural grandeur.Amazing. Due to an inclement weather, I decided to setup a hammock on this part of the cottage.
