Have been to several waterfalls in our country but this one is unique because of it's red glow because of the rocks that turn red when in contact with water. The cascade is quite robust. It falls into a pool where one can actually swim. We preferred to just soak in the view and take photos as we decided to... More

The sleepy town of Valencia has been home of some of the best eco tourism sites in Negros Oriental. Pulangbato Falls is one of it. The trail going there can be a little rough but not as bad as you think only some part as most part are cemented and improved already by local government. Also, along the way you... More

I was very excited to visit the Waterfall.The way to get there is only recommend if you take a tour.The waterfall is hidden at a ravine and to get therefrom the path is to climb down 232 steps, remember you have to climb back up. The falls themselves where a great dsiappontmentment, I had difficulty in finding them.

Pulangbato Falls means red rock falls due to - yes you guestes right - red rocks around the falls that make the river seemingly redish. Pula is the native word for red and bato, for rock. There are two falls, one big and one smaller that flows through a regulated swimming area. The water is refreshing! There are even small... More

Easily accessible by vehicle with an entrance fee of just 25 per person you can swim, picnic and relax in this beautiful, clean and really cool place. Water is strong this rainy days and there are actually two falls, one big and one small that flows through a swimming area. A good place to visit while in Dumaguete City.

We went up the first falls. The trek has some steep areas so trekking shoes is recommended. It is not a long trek but it might be difficult for some. I love the first falls since there were hardly any people so it was quite relaxing. For a while I was the only one swimming. My buddies were discouraged because... More

Relatively difficult to find - head to Valencia then ask a local for the way to Red Rock! Keep following the road to the top, don't be fooled by the places earlier on the road that look like they could be it! Entrance was cheap, I believe 25 php per person, although my memory may be mistaken. The waterfalls are... More
