Salakot Falls is about 30 minutes drive from city proper with a 5 minute hike, you will be refreshed once you dip in the clear water.

With statues on the falls. XD So peaceful Still preserve. Walang kalat. Easy to trek. Near the highway No ENTRANCE! ATLAST! 😂 The best way to go there? Use a motorcycle. Rough road. Ginagawa palang ang highway. :) but locals are so mabait. They will help you to find the place. :)

We planned to hike Mt. Salakot but we didn't get the info we wanted before we arrived in Puerto Princesa. During our 4-day stay, we bumped into someone who knows about the outdoors of Palawan. As of writing, apparently, you need to secure a permit to climb Mt. Salakot. And the permit processing takes 4-5 days. For the Salakot waterfalls,... More

Make sure to bring your swimsuit because the cool waters are very refreshing after the dusty trip up the mountain. I estimate the mountain pass is about 1,000 feet, 300 meters above sea level. Keep your eyes open... More
