Tourism Spots in Kabankalan – Mag-Aso Falls

In the itinerary prepared by Alfred, the guy from the Tourism Office of the local government unit of Kabankalan, there are lots of activities that we have to do while we are in the city.

There is off-road competition, motocross racing, longboard competition, the evening parade, the grand tribal parade, the fluvial procession and many more.

But there are two spots that tourists should not miss when they are visiting this Negross Occidental municipality.


Mag-Aso Falls.
From the highway, take a 15-minute drive via “habal-habal” or your private car going this virgin falls located inside a forest.

Before you start walking downhill, there are swimming pool and two private rooms which you can rent for P1,000 per night. Fresh air will greet you and the chirping sound of birds.

In this “staging” area, you should prepare physically and emotionally. Because you are about to see the magical world down under. Also, you should prepare your phone camera for a series of “selfies” and your digital camera for some awesome scene that you might have not seen in your life.

Here are some photos we took during our recent visit.

We visited the falls around 4PM and we spotted some local tourist who just came from there and had swimming. Others just went there to hang around with friends, take group photos and selfies.

Going down is pretty much exciting, but going back is a totally different story. This is the part that you wish you did not go down to see the falls. Just kidding!



But seriously, climbing back to where you started to descend will require extra energy and a lot of patience.





Mag-Aso Falls is managed and maintained by the LGU of Kabankalan City. It is located in Sitio Dug-Anon, Brgy. Oringao, Kabankalan City.

Entrance fee is only P20.

Our coverage of the Sinulog de Kabankalan Festival is sponsored by Zaycoland Hotel and Resort.
