Seeing this makes me soooo excited! Woof!

Most people see this quiet place just in passing yet they are in for a surprise. A grand eight meters tall twin falls sits regally and in its belly is just the perfect turquoise crystal waters to cool every overheating human and puppies alike.

Puppy Seal of Approval:
The Great Mag-Aso Falls. Take time dipping, jumping and dog-paddling in the cool beautiful waters. Feeling adventurous? Go cliff diving from the falls down to its deep basin. Be careful though, very deep waters and very rocky bottom especially the water towards the twin falls.

This huge tree fell due to an onslaught of the storm yet it is rock solid. It appears that it has been reinforced by the water’s minerals from the falls. Take your time exploring the place. You will be surprised that there are hidden caves around.

Travel Party: Perfect for all kind of travel parties. There is a pool for your kids. Just make sure parents must keep an eye on their kids since the waters in the nearby falls might be too deep for their short arms and legs. To be safe, let them swim in the kiddie pool for only Php 100.

Budget: Fit for budget backpackers. Entrance is Php 100 each. If you have a tent with you, no need to rent out those huts or rooms at reasonable price (Php 350-1500).
Trip: A day trip can suffice or you can stay overnight and enjoy the waters all for yourself.
