After our hike to the Jap Shrine, we went back to the Y-intersection. I scratched my arm and I bled; it felt so emo. hehe.

We were too tired to trek to Casaroro falls so we waited for a habal-habal ride. We negotiated with the manong driver and it arrived to 80 bucks per person. There were 3 of us so it would be 240. But we just made it 250 because the manongs in Valencia tried to charge us P150 bucks each, one way.

We arrived at the entrance of Casaroro Falls and we walked again, we went down the stairs with 335 steps and walked again until we could reach the actual falls. I was in awe. I’ve never been close to a waterfall (haven’t been to Kawasan) so I was just amazed at the place. I had to take a dip in the water. Took pictures and was still silent all throughout. We were the only ones there so it was kinda creepy at times.

We went back and took the 335-steps going up again. We went back to Valencia and ate at my friends’ friend’s house (???) It was for free so it was of perfect timing as well.

Habal-habal from the Y-intersection to Casaroro Falls and back to Valencia – P80 (per person)
Entrance fee in Casaroro Falls – P10

We got back to Dumaguete and just spent most of the time at the Rizal Boulevard. Took pictures again using the night scene of my camera. I love my Olympus SW790, I still have 4 months to pay for this baby. hehe.
