This place is a simple but relaxing place to stay. We decided to take Ceres bus from Caticlan port by 6:30 am going to Pandan. We dropped to Polion and rent a tricycle going to Malumpati. It is really easy to go there. I advised that those people who want to go there at least their own vehicle as they ask too much for rental of the tricycle. I do ask for discount for 7 people with 2 little kids (2and 4 years) and they asked for 300 pesos. Based on the conversation, they normally asked for 100 peso for 4-5 persons but in our case, they asked for 300 pesos. The road is quite bumpy and muddy as we went there partly raining... It was about 10 minutes ride and we have to move down and push the tricycle going up before it goes down again....

Anyway when we get there, we were able to choose the hut, the biggest one.. It was 100 peso for all of us plus an entrance fee of 10 / peso. We paid 170.00 for hut and entrance plus a rent of round black floater of 80.00 peso for 6 pieces.

I really like this place because they have a lot of people from municipality cleaning and maintaining the place. If I am not mistaken, we were able to get there before or around 8 in the morning. They really brush the tables and chair of every hut. They scrubbed the floor and side of the pool.. and they clean the water using net to get the leaves....The bathroom and restroom are clean and even the wash area for the dishes... People there are really nice... and approachable....

If you are fun of drinking spring water... you can have it there.. free and really cold. There few little restaurant, overnight room just across the place... There is store where you can buy the basic need for cooking... and even rent the cookware for a minimal amount...

When you get there, you can asked or buy the rice cake (suman in tagalog) or ibus in caray-a.. their dialect... It is really naturally sweet and really good if you have hot chocolate in the morning... and other pasalubong and souvenir items....

The water is cold but not really cold and they have 2 planks where you can dive.... I like the color of the water.. it is a river but the color of water is blue or blue green... just take a look a picture by your own eyes...It is calm and cold and enjoyable to swim for all ages...

On our second day at Pandan we decided to visit this place as recommended by the locals we've met. To get there you have to endure a bumpy trike ride but it is all worth it.
I was really amazed by the deep blue waters. It is so clear and so clean. The cold water is so refreshing. I've been to other cold spring and Malumpati is just one of the best I've been to.
Since the water is deep they usually advice guest to rent a salbabida for Php20. The entrance is Php10 and you can rent a cottage for a day for only Php25.
They also offer activities like hiking towards the head spring, which will cost you Php200 for the guide. To further explore you can also use the bamboo raft for Php50/hr, wherein you are given a choice to do it yourself or ask a guide to take you around. They also have zipline for Php200, wall climbing for PHP50, rapel also for PHP50 and they can take you on tour, by a raft, to the cleanest river in the philippines--bugang river. The tour stops at the beach where fresh water meets salt water.
If you want to experience the raging river, you can by letting yourself be dragged around by the current while you are on your salbabida with the help of your guide.
Our initial plan was to go there just to swim but good thing we were approached by manong richard and lemuel who offered us one activity. They even convinced us to try diving from the dive board that they have. at first we were hesitant but ended up doing it twice.
They also have a restaurant and cottages for those who would want to stay overnight. Their comfort room and shower room are clean and well maintained. The people working at Malumpati are accommodating, hospitable and are really kind to their guests.
It was a new experience for us, most of the activities we did were our first but it certainly wouldn't be the last.

We were already amazed with the view of the river as we enter the rocky road leading to the Malumpati Health Spring. The water is very clean and emerald to sapphire in color; no doubt to be awarded as the Cleanest River in the Country.

When we arrived, the place seems a kind of rustic and need to be improved but despite of that the swimming area was really fantastic as the clean chilling water is worth it.

The Comfort Rooms and Shower Rooms are in satisfaction rate.
The cottage price was Ok as well as the other fees.
The place is far but for adventure seekers, this place is a must.
Overall Malumpati Coldspring is Very Good.

Nothing much to do there. Terrible road and excessive charge by a tricycle driver. Basang Or Hurom Hurom in Nabas is better.

Malumpati is the source of drinking water in Pandan. That's how clean the spring is! It is a nice place to swim especially during the summer because the water is cool and the owners have made a pool-like barricade for the safety of everyone especially the kids. There is a store that sells chips and drinks. And the entrance is inexpensive (around P25 if I remember I right). Oh, there are diving boards there for the brave since the spring has a very deep part for diving. In fact, there is a rumor that no one has determined or reached its deepest part, yet.

We went on a family day trip as a side activity during our Boracay Stay. It's a short drive from Caticlan port through some scenic ocean drive and rustic settings. Initial impression was a crowded place with a huge natural spring for swimming and diving. At the time, the place was practically jampacked with 90% Korean tourists and balance of everyone else. There were huts and picnic areas around the huge swimming area available for rent.
The surprising and refreshing part was the guided "tube" experience which really allowed you to enjoy the beauty of the place and the invigorating cool waters. You can reach the starting point after a short 10-15 minute hike, although I would not recommend this to people with mobility challenges because of the sometimes slippery and uneven terrain.
The community are doing an excellent job in maintaining the overall natural beauty of the place.

Highly recommend joining a small group tour. In our case, booked through

I have been here for many times. The area is really love before but now not so relaxing anymore. Crowded and noisy but this is normal on developing attractions. I roaming around during my Boracay vacation. I visited also Nabas spring which Introduce to me by the Orient beach Boracay hotel staff. Basang cold spring, this place is clean and wide. Hurom-hurom, still be okay for me. Nabas spring is nice and really tropical but I think their municipal only lack of Market.

We've heard about this place oftentimes when we go to Boracay, because some tour guides offer this place as side trip to some activities on the island. So we also included this place as a side trip to our original itinerary which is the Malalison Island which is just two municipalities away.

We were awed by the place when we got there. The place is public hence the local government collects minimal fees as entrance for the preservation of the place (P50 for adults, P30 for children).

We arrived at about 9am so the area is already crowded. You can rent tables from the locals at a very minimal fee. Ours was only P75 per table for the whole duration of our stay. (We were 18 pax so we rented 2 tables).

We brought our own snacks and some food, but we requested some locals (owners of food stalls) to cook for us (again at a minimal fee) such as grilled pork, deep fried beef strips, and some seafoods.

Place is well-maintained, well-cleaned (particularly the shower area and comfort rooms). They collect donations at the door of the CRs, but it's ok even if you don't give anything.

The whole place is a no-smoking zone. Swimmers are not allowed to eat or drink in the water.

There's a deep part on the spring, the one that's under the diving board (yes you can dive!). Children can swim on the shallow part, but you still have to watch them even if there's a lifeguard around coz their area is the most crowded of all.

Inflated tire interiors of different sizes can also be rented. Expect the water to be very cold coz it's a cold spring of course.

We saw a zipline and a wall climbing course near the entrance. We didn't have time to try them. Maybe next time...

We were pleasantly surprised with the cold springs. It was raining so we didn't do the zip line, but we went tubing and it was incredible! Such beautiful views and you have a guide with you so it was very safe. Thanks Ramon for the great tour!

Before we enjoyed the Cold spring we tried the zip line through the rain forest, crossing the river....WOW what a kick.
After this funny flight, we take a swim in the river (Malumpati) which is more than refreshing excitement.
