We went up the first falls. The trek has some steep areas so trekking shoes is recommended. It is not a long trek but it might be difficult for some. I love the first falls since there were hardly any people so it was quite relaxing. For a while I was the only one swimming. My buddies were discouraged because... More

Relatively difficult to find - head to Valencia then ask a local for the way to Red Rock! Keep following the road to the top, don't be fooled by the places earlier on the road that look like they could be it! Entrance was cheap, I believe 25 php per person, although my memory may be mistaken. The waterfalls are... More

I went there with my workmates last year. We rented a jeepney worth 1000 pesos, it was cheap, since there were 10 of us. The falls is magnificent. The sulfuric rocks made the significant attraction of the whole environment. There was a pool to swim in, where calmer waters are. They diverted some of the water. We trekked higher than... More

A friend and I visited the place after we visited Casaroro Falls. It's beautiful and worth visiting for. It's also safe to swim there if you want to dip into the cold water. However, it has rusty smell which may discourage you from doing so. The place has small cottages that you can rent and stay for a short time... More

Oh wow! Quite a rare experience, coupled with adventure as we explored this virgin beauty of nature (really the saying is true that "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder"), because it was a breathtaking sight of awe and wonder: a hand-made creation of God. See the waterfalls behind us. Aren't they awesome?

My family & I went here before sunset. It seemed like a long ride from a Forest Camp. You know you are close when you pass this "smokey/cloudy mountain" that has geothermal vents where sulphuric smell emits. We drove through a cemented road and turned into a junction that was unpaved that one should carefully navigate. I was glad that... More

Nice and beautiful Place with a tropical garden and natural looking pool. Nice to have a fresh dip into the cristal clear water. For those who want to be a bit adventures, I also recommend to hike uphills. Ther is another also really beautiful waterfall.

We traveled to many islands in the Philippines and my wife was very excited to visit Dumaguete and the surrounding area but every attraction was underwhelming. Seriously, skip Dumaguete and go somewhere else in the Philippines - Palawan, Bohol, Siquijor, Sipalay, Moalboal, Boracay to name a few.
