Waterfalls are a common yet beautiful sight in the tropical islands of the Philippines each with different attributes and unique properties that make them stand out from the others. However, if you’ve been to several waterfalls already, chances are that you might feel like all these waterfalls are a bit the same. It may occur to some people that waterfalls are just water falling from a high point into a body of water and may not excite them anymore. If you’re feeling the burnout from waterfalls, then you might not have visited yet Lake Sebu’s 7 magnificent falls in South Cotabato.
Lake Sebu is a natural lake found in South Cotabato and has ancestral importance for the T’boli and Ubo tribes that have been dwelling in the area. It has been recognized as one of the most important watersheds within the Philippines and thus is given extra care and attention. The lake is very serene and majestic, and it is an amazing scenery that the Department of Tourism promoted the lake as one of the prime eco-tourism destinations in the municipality. The lake has so much to offer, even more so that it presented to us seven falls.
The seven falls’ main attraction is its zipline which takes you over the rainforest overhead the entire seven levels of the falls. It is said to be one of the tallest ziplines in Asia and is a must experience if you really want to cross out taking a zipline in your bucket list, as the zipline of the seven falls is magnificent and breathtaking. Imagine soaring through the sky as you view below you the seven falls running through the rainforest. If you want to, you can also view the falls in front of you as they are a majestic sight.
