Busay ng Tumagabok, Tumagabok Falls, more of Marinduque's lesser-known wonders

The less photographed Tumagabok Falls.

It is sheer delight for those who love the mountains, not just to capture their distant images in photographs, but to actually experience the thrill of having to climb up and down steep slopes and be rewarded in the end with a rendezvous with a lesser known, therefore less photographed waterfall.

Tropa Moriones Mountaineers

An outdoors group from Sta. Cruz intrigued by accounts of how difficult it is to get to see a busay, falls in Tumagabok did exactly that recently. But they found out that getting there now is not as difficult as it was before because of better access via the Tumagabok-Sibuyao road where the interior roads of Boac and Torrijos meet. One takes a jeepney from Torrijos to Sibuyao, and treks to the direction of the busay the major, major challenge of which is to descend a steep slope where one has to cling to vines - hopefully sturdy vines until one reaches the base of the mountain.

The enthralling Tumagabok Falls

The 20-meter high Tumagabok Falls then looms before your eyes and you are simply enthralled by its own majesty in the middle of a rain forest scenery and bird sanctuary.

Viewing this inspiring wonder and the scenery from the top of the waterfall.

This small Sta. Cruz outdoors group, Tropa Moriones Mountaineers, ardently follows the rule of low-impact outdoor recreation, and is composed of Rene de la Rosa, Jong Preclaro, Ayie Dalumpienes, Girlie, Jenny Lantoria, Gerald Querubin and Frithy Preclaro.
