Cagayan de Oro has a new refreshing surprise for everyone this 2021 – and it comes with a pair!
Sinulom Falls and Bolao Cold Spring is yet another spot for cooling off and de-stressing especially as the hot summer slowly approaches.
The spring/falls duo recently caught the attention of a lot of people due to their majestic beauty of nature and the irresistibly cool springs of water in both locations. Both are surrounded by pleasingly verdant backgrounds of bright green trees and other flora.
More than that, the clean and abundant spring have a bright tinge of blue that just makes you want to go for a swim. It’s a fully-packed paradise and a haven of relaxation for the exhausted.
On its own, Sinulom Falls is already a pretty breathtaking sight that will make you awestruck every time with its extraordinary beauty. 28 majestic streams of water gracefully cascade down from different points on rock walls thick with the vibrant green of plants and other vegetation.
It acts as the centerpiece of the entire natural spectacle with its surroundings thriving with nothing but the force of life. The actual resort has a swimming pool directly facing waterfall spectacle with a couple of umbrella cottages lining the perimeter of the pool to shade the people from the heat of the sun.
On the other hand, the cool and refreshing springs of Bolao Cold Spring is just a 500-meter hike away from the waterfalls with its own unique display of natural beauty. Crystal clear water from the river is collected which forms into the shallow spring. It is also surrounded by various trees and other flora which help create the atmosphere of relaxation around the springs.
Various sizes of rocks dot the entire spring forms walls that act as a deterrent to the strong currents of the river, effectively creating a gentle spring of crystal clear water. The spring maintains its refreshing cold temperature throughout the day which makes it the perfect place to cool off especially on hot days. There are also umbrella cottages around the spring and spacious wooden cottages that can be rented.
There is no corkage so visitors may bring whatever food they want. Grilling areas are available for use if ever visitors want to grill some meat to eat after having a great time in the cold waters.
Sinulom Falls and Bolao Cold Spring is definitely one of the best nature trips to experience in Cagayan de Oro. There are still more projects being developed to make the experience much more unforgettable for every person that visits the falls.
