Last day at El Nido. I made last minute plans to explore the island. Apparently there are more places to discover around El Nido sans boat ride. We hired a trike to drive us around. Off we go to Nagkalit-kalit Falls.
Regular fee for the inland tour is php 1500, don't haggle. The inland tours are the primary source of income of the trike drivers. As per my experience, they are known for their honesty and doesn't rip off visitors of the island.
45 minute travel time to reach the drop off point. Pay 150 / pax for the guide and prepare yourself for a 30 minute hike. The hike was not as easy as i thought it would be. Rain is a factor, this made the ground slippery. Navigating through muddy, slippery and uneven surfaces aint that fun, especially if you have old woman joints like me. I kept on asking our guide "Kuya, malayo pa ba?" i think i asked him that 5x.
My annoyance and inferiority complex about being out of shape diminished when we reached Nagkalit-kalit. Man, it's majestic. The water is cool and clear. Rock enthusiasts will have a field day with the sedimentary rocks around. The natural edifice is surrounded by lush flaura and fauna. The sound of the water is calming. We stayed for about 15 minutes as it's already late in the afternoon (not fun to hike back to ze main road at night). Albeit the short period of time spent, we had fun. We soaked ourselves in the cool water while admiring nature's handiwork.
The trek back is not as hard, my vintage flip flops didn't fail me. I felt a sense of pride for completing the hike without any mishap. We were tired after but every slip and tumble is worth it. A glimpse of magnificence is always worth it.
Till we meet again, Nagkalit-kalit Falls.
P. S. Kuya Jimwell was with us during the hike. He wanted to ensure we were safe.
