The Side Trip: Kegon Falls & Lake Chusenji



"Picturesque" .

I really cannot draw any other word from my minute cache of adjectives that would best fit this place. It was just so amazing, so unreal, so serenely beautiful.

The view is of Lake Chusenji and Kegon Falls, seen from a mountain on the other side of the range. One could get there via a ropeway (cable car), seeing on the process a popular mountain with terraced floodmarks (I'm sorry I forgot its name; and i've got no time to search the net).


From there, one can get closer to the lake, the falls and the village nesting in its bossom.

No, we took the bus - but these guys did it the more exciting way. :-)

Familiar sa akin yung waterfalls. Parang kahawig sa pelikulang "Watari" noong bata pa ako.

Nice take BTW, attorney.

Musicero said...

In response to your comment, I'm pretty sure I've said everything I need in the posts. 'twas a bittersweet decision. :P

I'm really envious of your posts having pics. Since I lost my k700 phone, I wasn't able to take pictures as much as I used to, and so my blog posts have seemingly gone "gray." Makes me wanna get a camera of my own. >_<

r-yo said...

dong: thanks.

r-yo said...

faith: yup. those were from the 40D. learning still though.

r-yo said...

ely: corny ang cable car. maiksi masyado. :-)

r-yo said...

tornadoes: there's another falls higher than the lake? that i should see one of these days.

r-yo said...

abou: oo nga. lalo na siguro pag winter. heheheh

r-yo said...

coldman: next project: big bike! he he

r-yo said...

henry: kailangan i maximize ang maiksing stay dito e

r-yo said...

joshmarie: uy! thanks for the visit.

Carver said...

Those are beautiful shots. I love the waterfalls.

Abaniko said...

You should have beat them by going there on a bicycle and wearing nothing but a sando and your boxers. :)

r-yo said...

carver: thanks!

r-yo said...

abaniko: there were actually bicycle riders too. pero hindi ako pervert kagaya mo! hehe. sige, dare! punta tayo davao sa december tapos bike tayo ng naka sando and boxers. :-D

caryn said...
