This is an amazing place. We rented a motorbike and rode up to Valencia, then on to the falls. You feel like you must've missed it, it's about 10km from Valencia up hill all the way. When you arrive, you descend the steps and then keep going along the stream. You have to cross the stream about 4 times so... More

My right knee is weak but with the aid of my trekking pole, guide and very patient friends, I was able to reach the falls and back. To enjoy the falls, one has to go down 30-storeys and crawl over rocks and boulders for 200 meters. I got a good core and butt workout from the climb back up.

I really was not prepared for the hike to these waterfalls but thanks to some really determined friends and cousins (who pretty much carried me over some of these boulders) this waterfall was definitely worth the hike. I was even willing to give up half way and wait in the stream while the others carried on but was very happy... More

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
