Penek Busay, meaning “falls trekking”, is an annual event hosted by the Digos Active Mountaineers to showcase the thirteen or so magnificent waterfalls that cascade down the mountainous region of Brgy Goma Sito Napan Digos City. Started last 2007 (in which yours truly had a memorable trekking adventure) and then becoming an annual event thereafter, Penek Busay is considered an event to go for the adventurers in Southern Mindanao. Just to entice you further here’s an excerpt of their description of the falls you’ll be “trekking” in this event.
The dozen of waterfalls in Brgy. Goma is an eco-tourism destination of the future. Penek Busay is an opportunity for Brgy. Goma to showcase the natural wonders within the barangay. Penek Busay is not only an environmental adventure trek to the dozen waterfalls all within Barangay Goma, but also aims to instill the values of responsible mountaineering. Most importantly, it will promote the environemental eco-tourism possibilities not only for Brgy. Goma,0f Digos City, but for the whole of Davao Del Sur.
I’ve personally witnessed the awesome waterfalls that littered the mountains of Goma and I can assure you you’ll beg for time to just sit longer and view these nature wonders. Read my post about the first Penek Busay I’ve been through and you’ll know what I’m referring to.
Just a warning though, the trek is not an easy one, and traversing through gushing waters, rocks and boulders and crevices is not for the faint hearted. So if I were you, I’d definitely prepare my fitness level!
Here’s a copy of their itinerary!
Make reservations as early as possible!
