Amazing falls

We went for a dip in the cool falls. But be careful of the stony path. Not good for seniors who have difficulty in walking.

The waterfalls are just so nice and cold too. Great for summer getaway with friends and family. I suggest to ride a motorbike going there.

I've seen better waterfalls but this is a unique one! It's surrounded with red rocks and the place is generally great. If I'm not mistaken, they have a place for groups who want to stay overnight. The place is accessible by car and motorbike. I suggest take a bike and feel the cool breeze from the trees and the rivers... More

Have been to several waterfalls in our country but this one is unique because of it's red glow because of the rocks that turn red when in contact with water. The cascade is quite robust. It falls into a pool where one can actually swim. We preferred to just soak in the view and take photos as we decided to... More

The sleepy town of Valencia has been home of some of the best eco tourism sites in Negros Oriental. Pulangbato Falls is one of it. The trail going there can be a little rough but not as bad as you think only some part as most part are cemented and improved already by local government. Also, along the way you... More

I was very excited to visit the Waterfall.The way to get there is only recommend if you take a tour.The waterfall is hidden at a ravine and to get therefrom the path is to climb down 232 steps, remember you have to climb back up. The falls themselves where a great dsiappontmentment, I had difficulty in finding them.

Pulangbato Falls means red rock falls due to - yes you guestes right - red rocks around the falls that make the river seemingly redish. Pula is the native word for red and bato, for rock. There are two falls, one big and one smaller that flows through a regulated swimming area. The water is refreshing! There are even small... More

Easily accessible by vehicle with an entrance fee of just 25 per person you can swim, picnic and relax in this beautiful, clean and really cool place. Water is strong this rainy days and there are actually two falls, one big and one small that flows through a swimming area. A good place to visit while in Dumaguete City.

Thank Joel D
