Went on Sunday with friends. A long climb up and down the steps to the falls but very pretty at the bottom!

I rate it high for the waterfalls with its beautiful, natural pool of blue green water surrounding the base. Great swimming in the cool water and lots of lush nature. Try to go there on a weekday, if you can, because it gets crowded. The rest of the place needs a little bit of work. Bathrooms need to be maintained... More

This place is simply amazing..The moment I first laid my eyes in this God made waterfall is enchanting, it seemed I'm a fairy walking in an enchanted forest that any time I raise my hand magic will happen. The place was irresistible.The turquoise green water is very soothing. No matter how bumpy the ride coming there it's all worth it..

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
