1. From Bacolod City
Bacolod City > Araneta St > Brgy Sum-ag > Crossing Abuanan > Maao Public Market>2. From Bago CityBago City > Crossing Mining > Maao Public Market. When you reach the market, you just go straight up following the concrete road til you pass by the signboard to Buenos Aires, then Kipot Twin Falls. No harm in asking locals for directions to be sure (LOL!)3. Going to Pataan via Murcia – There’s another route which is especially useful if you’re from Mambukal Mountain Resort and want to go to Pataan Mountain Resort. If you’re from Mambukal, turn left at crossing going to Sitio Manghumay. There’s a sign that says “going to Pataan” but to make sure you won’t miss it, ask the locals once you reach the army headquarters.
From Bacolod via Murcia, you turn right when you see the sign before reaching the army headquarters.The road is mostly concrete but there are some areas which are not, but still very passable even for vans. It’s around 5.8km before you reach the sign at crossing Sitio Pataan, Mailum, Bago City. The road to your left will lead you to Pataan Mountain Resort while the road to your right will lead to Kipot Falls and Buenos Aires Mountain Resort. Follow the road to your left for about 3km until you reach Pataan on the left side of the road. It’s around 30minutes from Mambukal to Pataan.

                                   My exciting trip to Gawahon falls.  Tired, thirsty and fun.




         Gawahon Falls Victorias City, Negros Occidental
It was my first time in that place, when I was riding on a tricycle I was ready happy and excited though something hurt on my butt because I was on a back-ride. I really felt the fresh air, It was a long travel going to the mountain. When you reach the top, Apparently you really in love to nature full of green ferns are everywher, native animals like chicken and carabao. They are reach in water that's why lot of wild flowers everywhere. When we reach the resort we walk 700meters going to the first fall, it was very tired just like  mountain climbing but I'd enjoyed. That 700meters is accessible by tricycle also but we choose to walk coz at that time I was when a group of people both first time and we challenge to walk. and when we reached the top it was fulfillment, cold weather, clouds are reachable and fun.
How to get there:
By Jeepney: Take a jeepney ride from Bacolod City north terminal and look for any jeepney that will have the "Victorias " Sign or you can take ceres bus from the north terminal. Arriving in Victorias City Public Market, ask locals from the area where the tricycle are parked that will take you to Gawahon Falls, or if the group is big, ask the drivers if you can rent the whole jeep and make a good negotiation about it. It take 100 pesos per person back in fort.

The city of Silay was the center of education, culture, and entertainment. It was the same reason why this charming city got the title “the Paris of Negros.”
 It was also in Silay where the affluent Ilonggos, known as the sugar barons or hacienderos built their fortune in this side of the provice. More than thirty ancestral houses, or bahay na bato has already been decalred by the National historical Institute as part of our National Heritage. Some of these houses have already been converted into museums.
