Day 2 Nov.27,2015
Wake up call : 05:00 am
The famed waterfalls of Sampao are very picturesque. Ulan-ulan Falls is one of them and located in the hinterland. You cannot come to Almeria without planning to visit these amazing falls. The walk to Ulan-Ulan takes you along a river, a mountain and several waterfalls in quick succession. It would take a minimum 30-minute walk to reach the place.
Ulan-Ulan comes from the visayan dialect which means “rain“. The force of the falling waters creates a mist hence the name. It’s cascading waters form a catch basin with water sufficient for swimming. With its greenery and cool gushing waters, visitors will surely enjoy taking a bath. There are no cottages along the sides of the stream and it is not a place to stay for overnight. source : http://tourism.biliranisland.com/ulanulanfalls.php
