Chasing Waterfalls: Mag-aso Falls
Location: Oringao, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental
Types: Slide horsetail, Segmented
In my second but very brief trip to Bacolod City in February this year, I was unable to squeeze in my tight schedule a trip to Kabankalan City.
Since I have started my Chasing Philippine Waterfalls Project, I have included in my to-do list Mag-aso Falls, Kabankalan City‘s main tourist attraction.
Found in its hinterlands and 30 minutes from the city proper, the main drop of Mag-aso Falls stands at 75 feet. There are other drops of Mag-aso but the most beautiful are the three that stand side by side.
How To Get There:
- From Manila (air): take any Bacolod (Silay)-bound flight of PAL, Cebu Pacific, and Air Asia.
- From Bacolod: take a Ceres bus going to Dumaguete. Ceres will have a stop over in Kabanakalan City. On the way to Dumaguete, drop at Brgy. Oringao. Travel time is a little more than two hours.
- From Oringao: take a habal habal going to Mag-aso. Travel time is ten minutes.
