The Aliwagwag Falls in Cateel, Davao Oriental is special.
Granted, it’s a beautiful showcase of the Philippines many natural wonders, but it also happens to be the tallest waterfall in the entire country, and its charm is most evident now, during the Amihan season, when the water is at its highest, and the waterfall at its fiercest.
Indeed, a fearsome sight is wonderful to behold, but it’s even more amazing when you experience it firsthand! The local government in charge of Aliwagwag recently constructed a monkey bridge across the huge falls, and had opened it to the public with the hopes of it boosting tourism. This news had encouraged "The Travel Teller" Olan Emboscado to journey all the way to Davao Oriental to try the monkey bridge for himself. Sure, it was terrifying being that high up, but according to him, it’s something that you should experience at least once in your life. Frankly, we’re inclined to agree with him!
The monkey bridge is nothing short of exciting, with only a thin rope to walk on, and nothing but a carabiner separating you from the waters below. Regardless, this is an attraction that commands awe and respect for nature, and is definitely something to experience here in Cateel. Adventure junkies, you know where next to go!
