Today I took a Jeep to Panicuason, the place where the road ends and the trails begin to climb up Mt. Isarog. The dormant and looming volcano above the city of Naga here in Camarines Sur Province was touted by the Lonely Planet Philippines as having some of the best preserved rain forest in the Philippines. When I reached the park entrance, the ranger drew a map in the dirt to the location of some lesser-known waterfalls. I enjoyed a three hour walk around up steep and somewhat-maintained trails through excellent jungle and a refreshing splash in some good waterfalls. Some impressive Tree Ferns, Walking Palms and other giant tropical trees I could not identify properly. Enjoy the images below!
