The local government should look into this, littering is not controlled, access to the falls requires the payment of an entrance fee, food and beverages can be purchased but cleanliness is left at the discretions of the patrons. No garbage area, no dedicated employee to...More

You can see the best bit from the road - don't bother with the entrance fee unless you want to use the toilet!

The waterfall isn't very tall but the multiple falls and the greenery were beautiful! It is a quick stop unless you visit the pool at the bottom of falls.

Scenic falls with a few shops and a restaurant. Don't forget to bring swimsuits to enjoy the pools just downhill from the road. Downsides: the falls are located right at the highway and the pools get muddy after rainfall.

These incredibly beautiful falls are right of a main road with vendors, bathrooms and a manmade pool filled with river runoff. This is great for the elderly or PWDs, but I prefer long hikes where you come upon these majestic wonders.

The falls itself is amazing but the water is not clear. It is muddy and dirty. Also, I hate the stairs going down because IT'S VERY UNSAFE. The stair handrail is broken and rusty. Be sure to walk down slowly but surely.

Rent a tricycle .. If you just wanna see the falls it's free as it's just along the road. Swimming is 30php..
