A rambutan fruit at the plantation area
At 8:10 am i went inside the plantation area passing some trees of rambutan which are now beginning to bear fruits.Following the trail that led me to the stream below. I came across the concrete dilapidated small dam(to cross this dam, just before it there is a trail on the west side of the dam going few steps up follow this one and go down again to the stream). Few more walks and there it was the Sapilang Falls (8:25 am).
Sapilang Falls at this time of the year has only small water flowing but nevertheless, you can dip and swim at a pool of clear water at its base. I lingered some few minutes at the falls getting some videos and photographs.
I left the falls at 9:07 am and got back at the drop-off at 9:22 am and walk my way to a canteen to have some snacks (jeeps were just beside it waiting for passengers while few meters away was the terminal of tricycles).
Rode a jeep and left DMMMSU NLUC at 9:45 am and eventually arrived at downtown Bacnotan at 10:01 am.

How to get there:
If you are coming from Manila, you can take a bus going to any of these
Northwestern Luzon places: Laoag City, Vigan City, Candon City and Abra. You
have to get down at Bacnotan, La Union. At Bacnotan look for the jeep bound
for SAPILANG (they usually stop at the bus stop some few meters away after
the Cemetery to get passengers) with about 10 pesos or 12 pesos fare. Just
tell the driver that you are going to Sapilang waterfalls. At Don Mariano
Marcos Memorial State University – North La Union Campus (DMMMSU NLUC) ask
permission and walk your way to the waterfalls.
