LINTUNGAN FALLS | Quezon, Nueva Viscaya

Lintungan Falls Quezon Nueva Viscaya (2).jpg

Gracefully flowing over the rugged mountainous valley of Nueva Viscaya, Lintungan Falls is a majestic two tier waterfalls awaiting travellers from the metro to dip themselves over its icy waters. Viscayanos are already enjoying its seemingly therapeutic cascades and one can opt to camp out should you wish to experience the Mother Nature overnight.

Distant from Bayombong proper, the waterfalls, I think, is still out of radar of travellers as lesser tourists set foot on its catchbasin. Should you be in Nueva Viscaya, this should be ticked by adventure-seekers.

We enjoyed the waterfalls after our cave spelunking in Brgy. Capisaan. It is almost one and a half hour drive between these spots with winding roads in between.

From the junction to the falls, a motorcycle can reach the waterfalls for less than 20 minutes while a full jeepney in less than an hour. The road leads deep to seemingly endless mountain road with tight curves. After almost an hour in traversing the roller coaster road, we saw the signage leading the jump off point to the falls. Our jeep parked and we set our feet on the descending cemented trail with the utterly cold wind whispering through our eyes. We never expect this would be too chilly. To counteract, I jumped, hopped and contracted my muscles to generate body heat.

Few minutes and we are now the basin, and there it is, the majestic Lintungan Falls. It graceful two-tier cascade gracefully flows to the rocky sleeps creating a picturesque scene. I immediately my camera to my tripod and took long exposures of the falls. As nightfall is fast approaching, I needed to take advantage of the light for the long exposure. The set up was so perfect and I do not need any filters to create 30-second exposures.

As night falls, we started a trek back to the jump off point. We heavily sat to the jeep and drove to the mountain road again. Gladly, we are accompanied with fireflies along the road, it was so enchanting. It took us almost two hours to reach Bayombong town proper.
