It's a loNg and bumpy ride beFore you'll reach this hidden gem but mind you, it's definitely worth the trip the moment you step into this place. For those nature lovers like me, this place is for you. The turqoise water is fresh and warm. The only thing to watch out are the slippery rocks within the water premises.

Kabankalan City is located about 91 kilometers south of Bacolod City, 2 hours bus ride; and 115 kilometres north of Dumaguete City, 3 hours by bus. Buses pass through the junction to Mag-Aso Falls - just ask the driver or conductor to let you off at the junction, which is located in Barangay Oringao. We stayed at Kabankalan so from... More

Kabankalan was 96.2 KM away from Bacolod. Mag-Aso Falls is a 20-minute drive from the Kabankalan City proper. With large mountain as backdrop, Mag-aso Falls releases a smoke-like shower of mist as it cascade down the natural pool with its turquoise green water. A few km of rough road going to the site will be present so its better to... More

Place is about an hour road travel from Kabankalan City..Public vehicle I guess is a little bit difficult, much better if you have your own vehicle because it is in the middle of highlands and the road is not yet fully developed..Once you reached the place, it is very relaxing and quiet. They have kiddie pool and a regular pool.... More

Access is a little difficult but you can get there either by jeepney or tricycle. Ask a local how much to pay to get there first. If they see you coming the price will get abusive. The falls are nice and foot accessible. People can splash around in the pool at the bottom or in the pool at the top.

Located at the top of a mountain, not many travellers know about this falls yet but it is just an enchanting place. The falls was majestic. You can rent a cottage for 1000 pesos bathroom was not cleaned properly though. My advise is you have to bring your own food as there are only a few sometimes no guest at... More

Absolutely beautiful spot. We were lucky that when we went, we were the only people there. Great swimming and such a great atmosphere. We only stayed a few minutes as we didn't have much time, but on my next visit, I would recommend renting a picnic hut (only about 1-2 USD) and staying for at least a few hours.

We went there around 4 pm and we had privatized the whole waterfall without any other tourists. in this case, the waterfall is great. good for swimming and tubing. however, one should be cautious as it is very slippery and don't go down there when it is raining heavily
