Sometime on June 2007, our group decided to delve into a small waterfalls located in sitio Lower Quinokol, Barangay Inawayan, Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur. The falls was situated in the border of SODACO durian plantation and Ayala Agricultural Development Corporation coconut farm.

The jump off point was at a house of LOGSAC member Dadz Ruty Moral. It was approximately a 1-hour river trekking using the Quinokol creek passing Señorita Piggery Farm. Before reaching the falls, we passed through several small tributaries. The stones making up the Quinokol creek were very slippery, and we used to cope with it although we only had a pang-videoke-inspired outfits (hehehe).

Inawayan Busay measures approximately 12 feet in height with an 8-meter diameter pool. It was fairly attractive then but due to the presence of a piggery farm nearby, bathing in the area is not a good idea for some messy reasons.

After taking pictures of the falls, we headed back to Dadz’ house for more videoke session. Our team was composed of Chickay, Papong, Dadz and Jaymar.

Three years after that, a king cobra (banakon) was caught and killed just right within the Quinokol creek. The residents there found out that the place has been an abode of king cobras. Very interesting fact, we might have met one along the way.
