I was fascinated, excited, and really is simply anxious in trekking the rustic and lush green forest of Gusing Sur, one of the barangays in the Municipality of Naguilian, known to be the Home of the Original Basi, an inset town of the garden coast Province of La Union. I have learned from local residents, that there is a magnificent and pristine clear waterfall cascading the mountains of Gusing Sur and so without much ado, I simply rushed and told my friends about this splendid gift from Mother Nature. I grabbed my camera and together with my friends, we begin this exciting experience.
Driving up north from the town proper as the point of origin via public utility vehicles such as tricycles, jeepneys and private cars, we reached Gusing Sur after passing through Barangay Ortiz, Lioac Sur, and Lioac Norte respectively in a thirty-minute ride. In Barangay Gusing Sur we drove right of the Aspiras waiting shed to Sitio Tawi-tawi for about five to seven minutes in an asphalted and cemented road.
At the end of the cemented road is a trail that leads to the base of the mountains of Gusing
An hour and thirty minutes of mountain-trekking not to mention the aches, bruises and scratches to your body is worthwhile when you reach the wonderful
A unique place such like this is a favor from God the Creator, Who took time to create such wonders waiting to be discovered and enjoyed despite the fast changing world of modernization. Indeed, SANGBAY FALLS a blissful place.
