Pandas are most at home in mountains and cold weather, and this hidden gem in Barangay Mailum, Bago City, Negros Occidental is perfect for a quick getaway from Bacolod City.
My friend Daisy brought me to Pataan to get away from the city and enjoy the cold weather. I wasn’t expecting much but the view on the way there was just awesome! We went through roads that wove through mountain side terraces that one would normally see in Benguet.
The clouds were hanging low and a fog was starting to settle in before we reached Pataan. Heading up to the actual falls itself is an easy trek with lots of greenery around. They made the pathways blend in with the surroundings so as not to destroy the natural beauty of the place.
We stayed in a cottage right beside the gurgling stream that came from the waterfall, just enough to lull me to a quick nap before eating the lunch we brought with us.
I wanted to take a dip but the water was so cold i decided to just take pictures of this magnificent wonder! Perhaps one day, the pandas will get the chance to visit this place again and take a dip in the clear waters of the waterfall!
To know more about this place, google is your friend! Lol.
