Gololan Falls | Things to do in Kabugao-Apayao
Gololan Falls is a breathtaking 33m-high cascade that comes with its own rainbow, thanks to the surrounding boulders that trap sunlight at the bottom. The falls can be reached after a grueling 30 to 45-minute downhill trek. The name comes from an old folk tale concerning a kiwat (eel) and an aguning (a fish related to the tilapia). The story goes that both wanted to climb the falls, a task only the iwat can accomplish. The aguning, left behind, cried out "Magol-olol" several times, which roughly translates to "Help, I'm stuck." Thus, the waterfall was named Golgolan.
