It's fairly easy to get to this place from the city. It's also quite easy to negotiate the steps going all the way down the river. As soon as you reach the river, expect challenging terrain as one needs to trudge along boulders and streams to get to the main falls. The majesty of the falls and the refreshing cold... More

I was invited to sign a guest book, so I played along. I asked for an estimate of the time, both down to the base of the falls and back up, and, as is typical in the Philippines, got varying answers that were either untrue or not responsive to the question I had posed. After further questioning, I was told... More

Easily got to using public transport and motorbike. Well worth the walk down and up all those steps! I managed walk in Sandler but maybe easier in trainers....feet can get a bit wet

Warning 350 steps down, and a 100 meter walk over larger and at times slippery rocks, than back again, and up the 350 steps. • A very rural 32 meter (100 foot) water falls. • We always feel the strain of lack of fitness and vessel in these situations. There is a 10 peso charge to go and see the... More

And long way down and a long way up but an excellent way to spend a few hours. The falls are breathtaking and the walk through the gorge is lots of fun and a little challenging in parts (for a novice like me).

Beautiful scenery of waterfalls but swimming is dangerous. The hike will take around 5 to 10 minutes. The hardest part is going back, it will take you at around 15 sweaty minutes.

We arrived by scooter and paid a small amount for entry (I can't remember how much, but it can't have been more than 20 php per person). You are then greeted by a couple of hundred steps, then a reasonably difficult walk along some rocks. In reality, though, whilst disabled access would be impossible, if you are of able body,...

The afternoon started out with a decision to go see this much talked about falls. The girl that I am with as a Dumaguete resident of 21 years has never been. So we went about and rented a motorcycle and made the trek. About 1 km from the trailhead to the falls the steep include took a toll on the... More

Hiked down with 2 year old in her backpack, followed by a cooling swim in the plunge pool at the falls. A lot of steps but well worth it! Highly recommended....
