after hiking the summit of mt isarog this is the place to cool down. the fall is rather big and more of a massage than many can stand. The pathway to get to the CR and also to get into the waterfall lake is akward.

The falls is a sight to behold, the place is so serene. Yet, the water is very cold. I can't swim or bathe for long. The chill goes through my spine. Nice stop after a long hike. I hope they have cottages nearby

Cold water fall breeze.it was a minutes hike going to the falls but surely you will love the silence and coldness of the breeze. Visitors must really experience it though it really took minutes of travel. Worth it!

The national Parc of Mt Isarog is a must see, the trail to drive there is rough at the end so I wouldn't recomend it at the rainy season. At the entrance of the Parc you can leave your vehicle and approche the staff were...More

Some of the best waterfalls I have seen in the Philippines! Once you get to the mountain, (via Jeepney and a short ride on the back of a Motorbike) it is not a long trek down to the falls. We did encounter a snake along...More
