Discovery Zamboanga has stumbled on its latest discovery — the “Nido Waterfalls” in Sitio Anuling of Barangay Pamucutan, some 25 kilometers in the westcoast hinterland of Zamboanga City.

The discovery was made by DZ’s newest members —the St Francis House Scouts of Pasonanca— during their camp in Anuling last Saturday (June 4)— with the assistance of Pamucutan Barangay Kagawad Edilberto Edil and Salvador Serna.

Discovery Zamboanga,  a group of local development communicators, made their first discovery of the “Kambal Waterfalls” early this year and followed by the discovery of the “Kamang Waterfalls” a month after all in Sitio Anuling.

The third waterfalls discovered (Nido Waterfalls) is reportedly being eyed as a possible water source for people of lower Pamucutan as personnel of the Zamboanga City Water District had already checked the place.

Close to one hour hike from Anuling’s place called “Campo” was all that it took for the St Francis House scouts to make in reaching the “Nido Waterfalls”, which is different from the other waterfalls earlier discovered as it has a cave beside it filled with the so-called “nido birds’ nests.”

Earlier, Pamucutan Barangay Chairman Romy Serna told Discovery Zamboanga that it is the intention of his administration to inventory waterfalls and other possible tourist spots in his village. In fact, Serna said the barangay envisions to be the destination of foreign and domestic tourists for Anuling’s waterfalls and river depths. -- BONG BUE
