Ika nga ni Maricel(my friend), “The struggle is real.”
From the transportation, the coordinating of motorcycles that will transport us to our desired destination, Sigay, took almost half of our day 01; to the dusty, slippery, scorching road of Bulala-leguey(a barangay of Salcedo, before Sigay) that powdered our feet; to the roller-coaster-like ride up to Sigay; to the lung stretching hike to Aw-asen falls.
Entering the Municipality of Sigay.
The trek to falls starts here.
These struggles was worth it when we reached our destination and witnessed the captivating beauty of the 142 feet falls before our eyes. God is truly amazing. And we are lucky to see these beautiful creations.
After the struggle, we soothed ourselves to the cold water of the falls, tried to reach the falling point of the water, and camped.
There we endured the cold wind blowing once in a while,since Sigay has a cold weather, and the hard bench the entire night.
I feel so happy and blessed to have experienced all this. This is one of the most unforgettable experience I had.
∗∗ Sigay is an upland municipality of Ilocos Sur and sitauted near the Cordillera. Sigay has a cool weather and rustic scenery. Commuting to Sigay is not that easy. We got there by riding separate motorcycle. There are Jeepneys going to Sigay but there are only two trips in a day: the first trip is Sigay-Candon City/Bitalag, Tagudin in the morning and the second trip is Candon City/Bitalag, Tagudin-Sigay around noon time. There are no hotels or inns in the municipality.
