The Amazing Asik Asik Falls

Just discovered last 2012 by a local farmer when a tree was uprooted after a typhoon. Asik Asik Falls came from the Hilligaynon word (local Philippine dialect) 'asik asik' which means 'Sprinkler' because the water came from the inside of stone wall cliff of the mountain; sprinkling like a shower, compared to the other waterfalls where the water (river or stream) falls from the top or edge of a structure. The water from this falls is safe to drink and as per the local authority, the water was already tested and found out its 80% alkaline water. The river's water below is not only came from this waterfalls but came from another waterfalls which is bigger, larger and taller than this.
