It’s okay to walk down to the falls but I tell you going up is bit tiring so prepare yourself, you might need a liter of water to refill you up.

Walking toward the falls will make you feel cold as the temperature drops, checking up all the green sights filled with moist and dews like it was a rainy night. But no, it wasn’t a rainy night it’s all because of the water that’s everywhere that makes the area dewy.

Travel Tips: 

  1. If you go with a group better rent a private car to lessen the transportation expenses.
  2. Bring as much as enough food for the trip, ordering of food at the resort will cost you a big amount.
  3. Adventure at your own risk. The resort doesn’t provide any lifeguard especially on the falls area.
  4. Be careful of the slippery areas, don’t wear footwears that is prone to slips.
  5. At some point, signal is weak if you are on the mountainside. Save your ATM pics upload it if ever you got the chance to get a bar of signal.
  6. Be responsible of your surroundings. Garbage bins provided near cottages. Don’t destroy mother nature.

Seems feather-like flowing water, but if you hear how the water drops it’s like thunder.

        Thank you, Erika! I have one last question. Hmm do we need a guide to go down the falls?

        1. You don’t need a guide going down the falls as you can explore the place all by yourself or with your group mates, and don’t forget to visit the top portion of the falls it’s nice there.
