the travel by habalhabal is more than one hour... too far.. so little attraction.. not recommended for those who's running out of time... same with casaroro, the concrete development in the area (swimming pool) was erased at once by a single typhoon.. a great lesson indeed of how we should respect nature and its power :)

Fun climbing around and swimming. Cool drive and fun way to get out of the city. Only one part of the road is tough.

The trip going there is around 20 minutes by private car from Dumaguete City and you will pass by mountains with sulfuric smoke and smell. The fall itself is gorgeous and the water is strong. The red color of the water is the reflection of the red rocks around the fall and is clear as it flows, making it a... More

Another wonder located in the lushness of Valencia. While the amenities could use a lot of improvement (changing rooms and clean toilets), the place isn't that bad. They have accessible cottages with outdoor grills for sinugbang baboy and isda (grilled pork and fish). There are 3 swimming pools where one could enjoy the cool water. Be sure to have your... More

Pulangbato Falls is a "must-be" when you visit Dumaguete. Take time for one day, buy grilled chicken or lechon, don't forget beer, backpack, towels and swim suits. Entrance fee is P 20 each aditional a hut for rent P. 200.

Had a lovely picnic lunch and a swim under the waterfall in early January 2014. Entry was 20p each. There are a couple of other waterfall pools that have been made and the kids enjoyed swimming in them while we sat at picnic tables alongside. Picnic table hire was 200p. The drive there was a bit of a mountain climb... More

Previous reviewers, I believe, saw only 1 - the easiest one - since there are no steps to count and just a bit of rocks to cross. That is true. Fairly easy or practically no effort compared to Casaroro. But wait, there's a more. There is another falls - a twin - and this one is really hard. Mountain climbing... More

Pulangbato waterfalls as is locally known offers tourists both local and foreign the chance to cool down, relax, and appreciate the beauty of this enclosed valley of fresh water and sulfuric waterfalls. Bask under the sun in one of the many flat rocks while lying down in the cold river water.
