This place has two waterfalls, one small one and one big one. The big one you need to treck down and hold onto the bamboo. You can with slippers but advisable beach shoes. We didnt dive in the water but it is cold and refreshing. The small waterfalls has a deep side up to maybe 8 to 10ft deep with shallow parts at about 2 ft. If your not a good swimmer dont jump in. Bring your goggles to swim.

When in Negros Oriental, dont miss to visit Valencia, Negros Oriental where the Pulang Bato Falls is located where you can enjoy its cold and hot spring waters. Only 50.00 is the entrance fee. The rest is for you to discover!

Called as 'Red rock' because of the sulfuric content of the water that flows from the falls makes the rocks turns orange to red.

If your cardio cannot contain extreme trekking and such, this place is for you. No long hour treks, no burning of fats . Just rent or ride a motorcycle from Dumaguete or from Valencia ang vuala! A small but majestic fall will be just in front of you.

Pulang bato falls is located in valencia, negros oriental. Negros is really abundant with natural resources and yet we wonder why it doesn't progress or maybe slowly progress. Sulfur, lakes, rivers, falls, they are all found in this island..You should visit this place when you come to dumaguete...It's really amazing to see how the mighty hand of God and His mere utterance creates everything.

The falls is in Valencia, near Casaroro falls. The place is nice for swimming, but the waters are cold. After dipping in the natural pools here, go to the natural hot spring nearby, ask the drivers or tour guides to take you there.

Going up you have to ride a habal habal, but beware of the drivers because they tend to charge double the standard fees; another problem is that they don't communicate among each other. We hired 4 habal habal to take us to Casaroro and to Pulang lupa falls. One of drivers had to buy gas so he went ahead. Problem is, the drivers did not agree on where to go first. As it turned out, 2 of us were in Casaroro and 2 were in Pulang Lupa. Being the driver/guides, they should not have let this happen. They don't even have cellphone loads to call one another. The signal is also very bad in that area. We lost a lot of time because of this incident. Worst of all, my driver even had the gall to ask for tips!

The experience would've been nice if not for the drivers

Pulangbato (red rocks) Falls is located in the Ocoy Valley in the town of Valencia, Negros Oriental, about 20-30 minutes away from Dumaguete. The place gets its name because of the waterfall’s seemingly reddish hue, which is caused by the presence of natural reddish rocks in the area. The easiest way is to get van rental services to bring you directly there, or use your own motorbike / car. There was a small entrance fee. No local could explain the red rock colour. This is also a volcanic area. So I think the ancient volcanic lava that flowed through here created the unique rock formations, and probably brought the iron minerals with it causing the unique red rock colour.

After going around the city ...eating and eating (food's darn good and cheap), we wanted to work off the calories. Our driver suggested a nature trip which was just 30 mins away from the city. It was just the break we needed. We even saw steam coming from the cliffside going to the falls. Apparently, the geothermal plant was nearby. So if ever you think of Dumaguete, there is certainly more to the place than just Siliman University. Just think of going slightly further...

The Red Rock or Pulang Bato Falls got me awed. It's a place so far but yet you will want to come back to. It may be lacking with the comfortable amenities tourists will look for but will be touched by how great God's hands in working with nature could be. It's reachable, yes, but, you will surely complain with the poor roads. You will be amazed by the spouting steam while traveling to the Falls site. Negros is really abundant with natural resources and yet we wonder why it doesn't progress or maybe slowly progress. Sulfur, lakes, rivers, falls, they are all found in this island. I wish I could see it again some other time
