As you approach Dayhag Falls, the thundering sound of water crashing against rocks grows louder, fanning anticipation for the grand reveal. But amidst the breathtaking beauty of Dayhag, the harsh reality of how nature can sometimes be so destructive is likewise evident especially when Typhoon Odette struck Cebu.

“Pag Odette zero gyud mi diri mam, wa jud mi nahimo diri kay pirting daghanag nangaguba unya napuno sad siyag bato. Wash out gyud siya mam nahug back to zero after pag Odette ,” Kayro said

“One year mi sigeg gibaha after Odette,” he adds.

(When Odette struck, we were virtually left with nothing because of the massive destruction the typhoon left behind. Large rocks also littered the place. We went back to zero. For one year, we were visited by floods)

“Tubig nga nagdagayday sa bato, maong gitawag siyag Dayhag”
