The most amazing waterfall I think I've ever been to. It's big maybe not the biggest but you can walk right up to it swim underneath it and the hike to get to it is difficult and makes it worthwhile you have to walk through the river several times and scramble over boulders where good shoes because you will get...

Beware of the stair case .-. it was fine going down but coming back up was a challenge. However in the end it was worth it :D

I just hiked 1000 kilometers on the Appalachian Trail in America and I wasn't prepared for the high level of activity of this hike. You will have to go up and down very steep wet concrete stairs and the concrete path that leads to the falls was washed away by a typhoon and has not been replaced so you will... More

Valencia is about 1-kms from Robinson in Dumaguete. From the plaza you must hire a motorbike (habalhabal) at 100P per passenger each way for the 15 minute ride up the mountain. It is . a lovely drive, although scary for me as riding on motorbikes without helmets is something I assiduously avoid. 10P per head entry, then down about 350... More

First you have to drive way up the mountain, through the cute town of Valencia, and then you have to climb down steep steps to get to the river. First dramatic feature is some giant bamboo that are more than 25 meters tall. Then it is a bit of a scramble over rocks, around boulders and across the stream a... More

We went to casaroro falls as a part of a tour with Harold's Mansion, would recommend as they had good price for this tour. Casaroro falls was doable without a guide although we did have to stop and think a few times about which path to take. The original path has been destroyed so you have to climb on and... More

I have visited this area of the Philippines many times and have often heard of Casaroro Falls. With some (much younger) friends I, age 65, drove up to the site. There appears to be some construction at the parking area going, although there were no workers there this day, a Thursday afternoon. There seemed to be no permanent entry gate,... More

A must see in Dumaguete is Casaroro falls. Get a local to take you there or just try find it your self for a bit of adventure. Upon arrival an attendant will ask 10 peso from you, don't get ripped off if your a foreigner. Just a heads up! :) bring good shoes and water. The trek down to the... More

The track is very tiring. You will see a lot or huge rocks and you really need to have a tour guide that knows what lane should you choose.

The trek was worth the effort, sore leg and exhaustion. You need to trek with the boulders and waters. You go down with stairways for 335 steps. How to get there: From dumaguete (baywalk) we hire tricycle to "sakayan" and rode a jeep with "Valencia" route for P12/pax. Then hire a motorbike going to casaroro falls for P500/motor roundtrip inclusive... More
