Practically undiscovered, Besay Falls can be reached through a one to two hour hike through sharp rocks, plain fields, and cold waters. Halfway through the hike, a tree house landmark will be seen from far away for trekkers to catch their breaths. Reaching the Besay Falls not only gives its visitors an astonishing view of its narrow waters coming down from uphill but also a cool breeze that makes up for the long hike. Travelers who are interested to reach Besay Falls are highly advised to visit the local barangay to hire a tour guide.

Mt. Zion Pilgrim Mountain
Attraction
2.68 km away

Aiming to become one of the first religious centers in Asia, Mt. Zion Pilgrimage Mountain is an expansive area for rest, relaxation, meditation, and retreat. Situated within the hills in Bugallon, Mt. Zion offers the public a place for soul-searching and rediscovery with comfortable accommodations and a peaceful environment for moments of reflection. Statues depicting the Stations of the Cross are scattered throughout the area, along with massive sculptures of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ, the latter resembling the famous Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Established and developed in 2002, Mt. Zion is currently expanding its facilities to further provide a place of sanctuary for its visitors and tourists, and also to keep up with the coming 2000th Year Jubilee of the Catholic Church.

Tinakayan Falls
Attraction
5.74 km away

A quick 30 minute drive from Labrador City Hall brings you to Sitio Kadampat, Labrador, where a short trek rewards you with Tinakayanan Falls, named for its resemblance to "takayan" or stairs. There are various paths that lead to the falls with corresponding levels of difficulty, but the easiest way is upriver. The lower level is framed by rocks that you can dive into the deeper pool from, but be careful of the current created by the underground cave next to it. Scaling the rocks leads to a shallower upper pool, where a shelf beneath the falls gives visitors a nice, private little spot to chill. If you're lucky, you'll catch Mang Bernardo, a local who loves diving and does cliff jumps that you should definitely not try for yourself.

Umusok Falls
Attraction
8.96 km away

Surrounded by trees and next to an empty field, Umusok Falls is where most locals go to cool off, and even bathe. Armed with bath products and bottles of gin, many families spend entire afternoons here. While not very big, Umusok is easily accessible in that it doesn't require a long, slippery trek to get there. Once you drive through the rough roads leading to the falls, it will only take maybe 15 minutes of walking through mostly level ground to get to this watering hole.
