Malatap Falls in the town of Labo was the last in our itinerary.
Getting there was piece of cake. After lunch, we went there by jeep (topload style) from the terminal in Daet, nakalimutan ko na kung magkano pamasahe, and the travel time was about an hour. The drop-off point is located at the end of the first metal bridge that comes after the Bagong Silang Junction, then from there, one will need to walk (for just a few minutes) along the path to its right and there's Malatap Falls.
To tell you honestly, I'm a bit disappointed with what I saw during our visit. The proximity of this supposedly pristine falls to the community makes it a bit not so touristy. Some local women wash their clothes there making the water smell like detergent. Also, human trash were all over (nothing beats a falls na kailangan pang i-trek, malayo kasi sa kabihasnan, hindi prone sa human waste). Nevertheless, it's still a very picturesque waterfalls.
We just spent our whole time there taking pictures and listening to the sound of the falls. What a relaxing moment (pero mas ok pa rin talaga kung nakaligo kami).
At around 4:30 pm, we left the place and head back to Daet, we had dinner, bought pasalubong, and went to the bus terminal. Our 3-day CamNorte Trip was over, we were now Manila-bound. haay back to reality.
