This one has it all. Habal-habal drivers all know it and it's easily accessible - once you get off the motorbike it's about a 15 min walk (max) on easy terrain, the footpath is clearly visible. The waterfall itself is impressive, wide and powerfull. You will get wet just by standing there. A bonus: Recoletos falls are literally above it,... More

If you're looking for a different kind of "waterfall experience", Ulan-Ulan Falls is a must see. Ulan is a tagalog word that means rain. You get the idea why it is called Ulan-Ulan? exactly because the waterfall has a high, and powerful cascade and being near it is like being drenched by the rains. The mist is so cold and... More

Bit of a hard and hot walk in but worth it, you can cool off once there. Great place for a picnic. We didn't swim there but you certainly could. Small entrance fee before you enter.

The trek can be long, it was a three hour walk from Poblacion, Almeria. It may be best to take a habil-habil to Brgy Sampao or just ask locals from Almeria the directions to Ulan-Ulan. The falls is gorgeous, with great views from the top of the trail all the way down to where you can walk to the rocks... More

Even my habal-habal driver had a hard time finding Ulan-Ulan Falls but we got there, thanks to the friendly locals. Quite a long trek but it was worthwhile... I had the falls all to myself!

Saw this first on Biliran's website when I was looking for local attractions where I could take my foreign friends. Chose this destination coz its near the area where we were staying, and it looked beautiful from the pictures i saw on websites and blogs. To get there you have to rent a motorcycle which they call Habal-habal, and they... More
