CEDAR, Center for Ecological Development and Recreation, in Impalutao, Impasugong, Bukidnon is one of the interesting part of our adventure for our Bukidnon trip. It is well maintained environment in the province. There are of few things you can do in this place. For most, they got to spend at least an hour or two wandering the place and see for themselves the adventure of waterfalls escapade and camping for any age.
Those tall tress says it all. Well preserved and maintained environment is a priority. Who can’t resist of taking pictures with this shade of green trees. Upon entering, this pathway will welcome you gracefully.
Along the trail for waterfalls escapade, you will need to cross the bamboo man-made bridge, quite slippery during rainy days, better to hold the rope while walking for safety and security. You will hear the outstanding sound of the waterfalls as you walk nearly to its resting place.
The rain pours heavily so we decided to pause and stayed under the shade of the trees till the rain stops. But the rain continues to pour so we ended up going back to where we left our packed bags. We may not be able to see all the beautiful waterfalls but we’ll sure be going back here to finish what we’ve started.
