Asik Asik Falls
It is the crown jewel of Alamada. The potable waters come out from the spaces between rocks and sprinkle down along with the lush green water-loving plants producing a curtain-like scenery that stretches for about 140 meters wide and 60 meters high.
The cold water rushing down the cliff is a relaxing massage from nature when it hits the body of the visitors who are taking a bath below.
This treasure was only discovered by the villagers in March 2012, and its name of the falls is derived from an Ilongo word “asik-asik” which means “sprinkling”.
Formerly known as Pantar, this place is dubbed as the “Little Baguio” of Alamada because of its chilling low temperature environment, and the place offers a promising view of mountain ranges and plains of Alamada. Sometimes, a sea of clouds is visible from the place.
