This was not my first trip, I once went there during my college years but during that time it was not yet developed not like now....On the way to our destination, we stopped by E-mall supermarket, to buy rice, few softdrinks and junk foods, and lechon manok to eat for lunch we also bought some hanging rice on our way as well. So yes, there is no hassle preparing things before travelling as the bus terminal is near a mall and you can just buy what is needed for your Trip.
We took a v-hire paid extra to get to Kawasan entrance, however if you are tight on a budget you may ride a bus, Aircon will cost around Php125 whilst non-aircon Php107.
In the Kawasan entrance, we will pay an entrance fee, a small amount to help preserve the place and you can also buy some fruits since there is a sari sari store. What is compelling however is the sceneries you will get to enjoy since you will be following the kawasan river trail.
Then we started our long journey towards the 2nd waterfall. I would recommend that you stay at the second waterfall, not as deep and not as secluded.
Cottage would cost around Php300 maximum price but if you wish to stay overnight, they have rooms for around Php1500+ and mind you there is no limit to how many number of people will stay in the place.
If you are hungry, you can request the owner to have your rice cooked for Php50.00 and if you are craving for native chicken, yes they serve this as well. You can even tell them how you want the chicken to be cooked.
If you are feeling adventurous, you can trek the source. I must say it is the best feature by far for this three level waterfalls found in Badian. Or you can rent a raft and get up close and personal with the waterfalls. This I wont recommend however since it is expensive most likely Php300 per hour and you'd have to pay for the worn out life jackets.
One thing I liked about this place, this is my third time being there yet because of it's tranquility and so close to nature, I can never get bored with the place.
