Mt. Palpalan and Pulacan Waterfalls


Mt. Palpalan is the highest point of Pagadian City at 684masl.  It houses the satellite transmitters of LCM FM 88.7.  From the Rotonda, Mt. Palpalan is a 30-minute ride by tricycle plus about 10-minute hike to the summit.  It was one of the heart-popping rides I had and I truly admired how the driver managed the bike on various steep ascends.

The view of Pagadian Bay is best seen along the road before the jump-off as compared to the view at the summit which was somewhat covered by trees.

After Mt. Palpalan, we were back at the Rotonda for another 45-minute ride to Pulacan Waterfalls -- located in Upper Pulacan in Labangan, which is already outside of Pagadian City.  The waterfall was situated beside the highway and should we’ve known earlier, a bus was a better option in terms of a comfy ride. 


Anyways, Pulacan Waterfalls lays within Camp Major Cesar Sang-an – 1st Infantry Division and said to be a permanent Scout campsite.  The basin of the main falls is not an ideal swimming ground but just meters below is a lagoon resembling pond that has a welcoming “dive-in” guise.  With no extra clothes at hand, gazing at its unique beauty was the most I can do… Maybe next time I’ll come to enjoy you more, until then…
