When you arrive, you park up and walk in. There is no hike involved, just a whole lot of beauty to take in.
There are other smaller falls at this cute tourist destination, but the big Pulangbato Falls is hard to miss. To get down to the base of falls you must walk across the photogenic bridge and down a few small steps.
With two cute little cafes, one being really local and another more bistro – Pulangbato Falls is the perfect place to chill for an afternoon.
There is also accommodation available on site, located right in the centre of the grounds. They are cute little cottages with balconies overlooking Pulangbato Falls that can be rented for 3,000 Pesos per night.
If you’re not looking to stay overnight, you can rent a small hut for the day or a table and chairs if you’re visiting with a big group costing 200-300 Pesos.
