Chasing Waterfalls: Casaroro and Pulangbato

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Hello readers. It’s been a while; 2016’s come and gone (thank God) and I’m back with a vengeance.

I survived the Christmas break, and I managed to squeeze some travel plans in between the parties and the ditzy soirees.

Yesterday I visited Valencia for the first time. Valencia’s a small town, a short 20 minutes’ ride from Dumaguete. And it has two of the most amazing waterfalls I’ve seen, namely Casaroro and Pulangbato (literally Red Rock)

Getting to Casaroro was a bit of a challenge. You have to go down a steep flight of stairs. We had to traverse some rocks and streams (and we had to deal with some pretty strong currents too) to get there, but boy was it magical.

Pulangbato was smaller in comparison, but it was just as serene.

Here are some photos from the trek.

Directions:

From Dumaguete, take a jeepney to Valencia. Once there, hire a pedicab/motorcycle to take you to either Casaroro or Pulangbato. For the fare, you just have to haggle. Good luck and happy travels! 🙂
