ALIWAGWAG FALLS: The Highest Waterfalls in the Philippines. | The Travel Teller | Philippine Travel | Scoop.it

I grew up hearing beautiful stories about Aliwagwag Falls. Folklore has it that the Waterfalls is a gift by the gods to the Mandaya Tribe of Cateel. It is their source of living and fountain of their lives. When I was a kid, I never had the privilege to see the beauty of the Falls. It wasn’t easy to get there before.
