Merloquet Falls | Sibulao, Zamboanga City
I have to be honest that getting to Merloquet Falls is not as easy as you imagined it to be. It’s far. Really far. And for all the right reasons, we were just as glad to have the trip arranged by iTravel Tourist Lane.
Merloquet Falls is secreted away in the lush mountain community of Sibulao. It is about 78 kilometers from downtown Zamboanga City & saddles in the border with Zamboanga Sibugay.
Merloquet Falls: Stunning Zamboanga
While it may be true that you can DIY this trip, what other blogs don’t tell you are the hassles of commuting. Imagine taking the bus or the usual cramped van to Vitali then transfer to Sibulao via habal-habal.
But if you’re okay snatching half day of your vacation time just to get there, then the adventures of Merloquet Falls is a real deal.
Unlike other waterfalls that plunge deep & raging, Merloquet Falls gently cascades through tiers of rocks — each more beautiful than the last.
Stories have it that in the past, the mere mention of Merloquet meant hailing from a far away land. It still is today, but with well-paved roads, reaching it is not anymore an imagination.
It is tucked in thick foliage & can only be accessed from a stairway of about 300 steep steps. Because the water isn’t wild, tourists can clamber through the rocks for some kind of refreshing hydro massage.
What Merloquet Falls lacks in breadth, it makes up for in charm. The tumbling veil of gentle cascades, the assemblage of rocks & the trees that frame it, all together create a stunning experience.
