The view from Mount Sembrano's peaks left me and the rest of Tropang Ligaw (unofficial name) revitalized. The vastness of Laguna De Bay, for one, had filled me with more than enough energy, refilling my HP and opening up my mind even further.

It only took us - Angelo, Dennis, and I - forty-five minutes to return to the Campsite. Our pacing was very quick, I loved it! Ang lakas! Later on, the rest of the company arrived.

We decided to go to Manggahan Falls, to the far right of the campsite (if you're facing the trail to the summit). It is only a five-minute walk. The stream was refreshing.

Manggahan Falls is located in Brgy. Malaya, Pililla, Rizal. It is found in one part of Mount Sembrano and is a very popular sidetrip to hikers.

Other adventurers had already made themselves comfortable in the numerous nooks near the falls. The Patola Mountaineer was also there. It was a good thing that the actual falls remained unhindered; we got to pose for photos.

The water was cold and refreshing. I believe the falls is a potable water source - a vital thing for campers. And aside from the ten-peso campsite fee, taking a dip in the falls is free of charge. I was glad that the area around the falls was clean and well-maintained, in all fairness.
