After our trek to Bacbacan Falls in Brgy. Mainit, Brooke’s Point, Palawan during our Southern Palawan trip, our guide told us that we can still go visit the Cabcaben River nearby. He said that there’s a trail nearby but it would be faster for us to ride the tricycle to the river.
It took us less than 10 minutes to arrive at Cabcaben River. We then walked towards the hanging bridge. The bridge was about 75 to 100 meters long.
At the end of the bridge we were planning to go back to our tricycle to continue our tricycle tour around Brooke’s Point, our guide then suggested that we walk a little further to see the cottages but it wasn’t much to see. I hesitated to go there but thought that maybe I would not have a chance to go back here again, so we continued walking to the cottages and saw people swimming on the waters.
I wanted to swim but our limited time would not allow me to swim there. So after a few shots we walked back to the bridge and crossed it.
When we crossed the bridge a man on a bike crossed the hanging bridge.
We were so much interested on crossing a hanging bridge on a bike that we asked the man to let us borrow his bike and cross out Dong Ho’s bucketlist of ‘riding a bike across a hanging bridge’.
Unfortunately, I did not complete the crossing of the bridge on a bike but at least I get to try it.
Then we paid our guide 200 Pesos for accompanying us at to the trek to Bacbacan Falls and Cabcaben River. He said that he will no longer ride our tricycle as he will be walking through the trail going back to the soon-to-be 7 Falls Hot Spring and Nature Park Resort.
We thanked him and went on to continue our tricycle tour around Brooke’s Point, Palawan.
