It was Disaster First before this Marvelous Curtain-like Waterfalls became North Cotabato’s Blessing
Never did anyone expect that typhoons could bring this one of a kind surprise that is utterly majestic.
It was during 2008, when a strong typhoon hit Mindanao. Due to heavy rains, trees on the mountainous part of Upper Dado in Alamada, North Cotabato were uprooted. Thus, creating cracks on its surface. It is believed that since then, water sprang from these cracks.

It was the birth of the majestic Asik Asik falls – the unusual waterfalls that doesn’t fall off from a cliff but rather from the mountain itself. The water is springing from the rocks. Yes, the green mountain looks like it spits the water off its rocks. The cascading waterfalls looks like a 60-meter high and a 140-meter wide blinds that cover an immense window! Even some of the expert landscape photographers would have a hard time to capture its whole picture. There’s nothing left to do, but to visit it yourself, if you want to witness the exact awe-inspiring scene.

However, brace yourself for the most unexpected ride of your life. The road bound to Asik Asik Falls is too bumpy and is best suited for extreme adventurers who fear nothing. Habal-habal is the transport service used in the place. Some of the people who have been there suggest that you must prepare at least 700 pesos for the habal-habal fare. You need to wake up really early to enjoy your Asik Asik adventure fully. The rides, the trail- well, everything in the trip will take countless hours and will really drain your energy. But at the end, it’s always the marvelous beauty of the unusual waterfalls that will reanimate your exhausted body.
