One of which they visited is the majestic beauty of PIKKANG FALLS in Barangay, Malamin, San Juan, Ilocos Sur last October 27, 2013. The iSAVE group accompanied them in their trek for almost an hour from the parking site.

The said show is regularly hosted by John Feir but due to his schedule in Camiguin unfortunately he doesn't made it. But the network sent two of the best hosts of GMA Comedian Pekto Nacua and Kapuso Star Jackie Rice.


Pikkang was derived from the word Pekkang or Falls in Iloko/Ilokano dialect. The Iloko dialect describes waterfalls in many ways. Some say Sangbay, Pinsal, Burayok and Tortorayok. Here at Malamin, San Juan they called it Pikkang until they call it Pikkang Falls.

Pikkang Falls is located in Barangay Malamin, San Juan, Ilocos Sur it is on the Eastern part of the town San Juan (Lapog). Bounded on the west by Barangay Cacandongan, on the east by the Ilocos and Abra Mountain Ranges, on the south by Barangay Barbar, and on the north by Municipality of Cabugao.


You could travel by land from the Poblacion or town proper of San Juan. You have to traversed road going east to Barangay Darao, Cacandongan and Malamin for 20 minutes. Upon reaching Malamin, proceed to Sitio/Purok Centro up to the remotest concrete road of the village, there you would see a concrete pavement intended for parking vehicles of visitors and guests. From that area you can request for a tour guide to deliver you for more or less one hour depending on your speed going up and passing the terrains.
