My friend and I visited this waterfall in the rainy season, which meant the trek was more about the experience than the waterfall itself. We stopped at the falls because of a roadsign we saw on the way to a beach. Though it had been raining for days, we were assured by the staff that our sandals would be fine for the hike. While I have to admit our tour went astray because ofnheavy rainfall, the hike itself was really beautiful. We moved through multiple rivers and rocks to find our way to the top. Definitely recommend appropriate footwear and do not recommend taking this trail without a guide, but the jungle trek is worth it. Would also recommend to avoid during rainy season.

It was a 20 minute walk through fields rivers and jungle. It made a good change from beach hopping. Would recommend crocs or similar as feet will get wet and you need some protection from the stones though the guide was fine in flip flops. We didn’t make the 2nd level as it seemed a fairly strenuous and near vertical climb but first level was beautiful and we had a refreshing swim.

You can rent a tricycle or motorbike coming here. Be very careful when riding the motorbike or scooter because the roads are not completely paved. You can get a local when you get there as your guide, but it's upto you if you want one.

Seeing and swimming on the falls is awesome. It was worth the trek. Be sure to use the right footwear, as you will be crossing rivers.

You may want to check my video below to see the type of road i'm referring to and give you a glimpse of the trek and the waterfall experience.

You can either get a tuk tuk to this area or rent a scooter/motorbike for around 500 pesos per bike, we paid around 300 pesos each for a guided tour to the waterfalls, I can’t remember the guides name but he was honestly so nice and friendly, he took us on a walk through the rainforest which was beautiful, as we went early we were lucky there was no one else there. We both just wore flip flops and it was fine, as to get to the falls you have to walk through around 8 rivers, most only ankle deep, when we reached the waterfalls we could get in the water and have a swim and the guide took pictures for us, the first waterfall is bigger than the other,
I would recommend taking water, towel, and swimwear :)

We walked about 40 minutes as we were busy taking pics on our way. The trekking was good and it was not so tiring as only few uphill. The falls is not that amazing but it was good enough being in El Nido. Waters cold and good enough to refresh urself.

It was not good to go there as a big group as the falls and swimming area is only very small. We enjoyed our time there as we solo the place (the price of being an early bird). After us, there came a big group..I know they cannot appreciate the little falls as it became so crowded.

Waterfalls are not impressive. Probably i have seen much better before.
30 min Walk was a nice activity.
You will have to pay 250 peso for a guide. It is more like a help for the local People. So alright. If you are interested for a walk and to see a little waterfall, you can go. If you have better things on your list; you won't miss a "Must Seen" place.

The locals are surely taking advantage of the tourists. was asked to pay 250 per person for entrance fee plus 20 pesos gate fee (?) for a 30 minute trek to an unimpressive falls.

We met up with some friends one evening and rented scooters to the start of the hiking trail to Nagkalit-Kalit Falls. At the start of the trail there were a number of locals offering their services to walk you to the falls for a fee. I can’t remember how much we negotiated, as we split it between a group of 6 people. At first I thought it wouldn’t be necessary to have a guide, but after the hike I realised you really do need one. The trail is not marked and you will easily get lost if you don’t know where you going. We crossed so many rivers that you would be completely lost if you thought you just follow the river path.

The guide is more to show you direction and how to get there rather than giving a guided talk. He does however help you cross the river if you need help. You don’t need to know how to swim to get to the falls. Most of the rivers is ankle to knee deep. I recommend wearing water shoes so you don’t slip.

It probably took a 30 minutes walk to get to the falls. The fall was beautiful, but not that big. Apparently there is a bigger one but much further away. It was still nice to get into the lake and swim a bit. It is small so it is more a dip than a swim. The water is cold so bring towels to dry up afterwards.

Overall, it was a nice experience. It would be a free excursion if you knew where you were going, but it is better to pay a local guide if you don’t. You also support a local family so that’s good thing.

After 3 months traveling around the Philippines i was thinking to check out that waterfall in el nido. After arriving there, locals stopped me and told me that i need a tour guide to walk there for 300 Pesos!! Seriously?! For such a short walk and this kind of waterfall? No thanks! Asked for an official document which says i need to pay that amount and get a guide. Of course they had nothing. So i went there by myself and payed the official 10 pesos gate fee. after 20 minutes walking (almost impossible not to find it), i got there.
The waterfall is not special, just a usual one but nice to chill there if there's nothing else to do.

Got hustled to take a guide for 250 pesos, said we could not go without one. We said we were going anyway they said there was a parking charge but I did not trust them not to nobble the bike in revenge. very pushy. decided it was not worth the hassle and spoilt the visit so left.
