We planned to hike Mt. Salakot but we didn't get the info we wanted before we arrived in Puerto Princesa. During our 4-day stay, we bumped into someone who knows about the outdoors of Palawan. As of writing, apparently, you need to secure a permit to climb Mt. Salakot. And the permit processing takes 4-5 days. For the Salakot waterfalls,... More

On the national hi-way going to Napsan is a nice waterfall and stream up in the mountains. Four wheel drive is recommended. Make sure to bring your swimsuit because the cool waters are very refreshing after the dusty trip up the mountain. I estimate the mountain pass is about 1,000 feet, 300 meters above sea level. Keep your eyes open... More
