A jeepney ride from town, then a juddering ride on a motorcycle pillion up to the national park. From there it's legwork up the mountain slopes on rough paths through tropical rainforest to the waterfall, which made me want to do a Tarzan whoop.

The falls themselves are spectacular but the hike down to see them is quite dangerous with slippery and eneven steps. Fallen trees lie over the path in parts and you have to skirt around them with a cliff off to your side. Having a guide with me was a life-saver. To get a good picture of the falls at the... More
