The waterfall is very unique! Cold and refreshing water. Too bad we didn't bring extra clothes. A little caution about the transportation though. Very few public transpo pass by the area.

This is a good alternative if you can't go to Casaroro because of the hike. It isn't as majestic as Casaroro Falls but the place has different falls and streams which is very relaxing. Going there isn't tedious and can be reached by a van....More

Hi! There's no public transpo going there. You can rent a motorbike or have a guide to bring you there.

The entrance fee was 20 peso per person. I'm not sure about the cottage thou since I went solo so I did not get one. Went there last week
