Going for a swim at Mag-aso-falls
Mar 2019 • Business
Left early in the morning to visit Mag-aso-Falls and go for a swim. Paid for the entry and for a box to stay that day. Clean place, with a walking path going down the hill. Enjoyed that day.

Beautiful intro to the natural beauty of Negros
Jul 2019
Great attraction in the highlands of Negros. The trail is slippery but well worth the effort to see and swim at the falls.

Feel the Falling Mists

Catching a glimpse of the new natural sensation is certainly trending. With more than 7,100 islands, it is not a surprise to discover another hidden attraction in the Philippines which are equally wonderful to some of the famous attractions. Also, being considered as a social media capital of the world with so many natural attractions; it is not new if the online community will draw attention to a particular destination.

This is similar to what happened in Mag-aso Falls. It gained a lot of attention when someone posted it in the social media with a picture perfect scenery of Mag-aso Falls. Since then, tourists flock and have been busy posting evidence of their own experience with the falling mists.

Mag-aso Falls is a multi-tiered waterfalls located in Brgy. Oringao, Kabankalan City in Negros Occidental. The name was derived in a Hiligaynon word, “aso” which means smoke. Are you wondering why smoke? It is because the main falls seems to produce a smoke after it falls. One of the major reasons why tourists flock here, it is because of its ice-cold turquoise clear waters.

Since Mag-aso is a government owned resort, its prices are sure to make your pockets happy. Entrance fee is ₱50 per pax with discounts provided for senior citizen and students. If you’re going to spend a day trip, one can opt to rent cottages for as low as ₱200. However if you want to stay overnight, there are plenty of fan room cottages good for 4 pax for ₱1,000 only.

Activities:

There are plenty of activities available in the resort that one can enjoy. Here’s some of the list:
- Meditation and self-reflection
- Trekking down the falls
- Swim on its ice-cold turquoise clear waters
- Pool dipping
- Team building or family gathering
- Camping and bonfire

Falls and swimming pool.
Nov 2017 • Family
Mag Aso Falls is a beautiful natural park setting. Access fee to the park is minimal. Shelter houses available at a reasonable fee. Two cabins are available for overbite stay. There is a fresh water swimming pool fed by the river so no chlorine or salt just clean fresh water. A nice place to go as a couple or a family. Not handicap accessible as there are lots of steps. But for able bodied there is lots to see. Multiple water falls where you can swim at your own risk. This is a beautiful natural place to relax. Lots of nice scenery for the photographer.
I would highly recommend a trip here if you are on Negros Oriental Island neat Kabankalan in the Philippines. We spent the afternoon here with 3 adults and 2 children ages 6 and 11. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The next time I’m in the area I plan to stay here a couple of nights with my Fiancée.

Enchanted
Dec 2016 • Friends
Mag-aso falls is a very beautiful and enchanted place. Going there is a long ride from Bacolod City via Bus then a tricycle ride. It's better to go there by group because you can save on the tricycle fare which is a bit pricey if you're alone. The water in the falls is cold and refreshing. You just have to be careful walking on the stones in the falls because they're very slippery. For the kids they can swim in the pool, the water is from the falls and not that deep.

Upon arrival you have to pay some fee ( i forgot what it was). They also have cottages for daytime and overnight stay but limited. You can find a small store in the area where you can buy chips and drinks. Bringing your own food and grilling is also allowed.

I just hope they could fix the shower rooms and comfort rooms so that it's more comfortable especially when changing your clothes. Moreover, they ask you to pay a small amount for using them.

I get to see this falls before it was discovered by public and developed by the government. Every visit it amaze us, this blue water heaven never change. Even now, lots of tourist came here to swim. It is still beautiful as ever. Entrance fee is Php 50 both adult and child (kids 6 yrs old and below old are free of charge). Kids are not advisable to swim at the waterfall. It is too slippery. And for adults, it is not advisable to dive. The current of the water is unpredictable, there are quite number of people who jump but didn't make to get back again. Fret no, there is a swimming pool with overflowing water from the falls which great for both adults and kids. There are also cottage houses for overnight stay prices range from 1000 per night. I would not advise to stay overnight since there's nothing much to do here. No restaurants in the area.

P.S.
Please be extra careful and don't swim in the waterfalls when it's raining.
