During our visit to the famous falls in Baler this June, we had quite an adventurous experience. The weather appeared to be pleasant, although it started drizzling as we were about to begin our ascent. Despite the rain, we embarked on a 3.5-kilometer journey that took us approximately 3 hours to complete.

The trek itself was enjoyable and offered breathtaking views of the surrounding nature. Upon reaching the falls, we were greeted with a refreshing shower of water, which was a delightful reward for our efforts. It was a great opportunity to cool off and immerse ourselves in the natural beauty of the place.

One important thing to note is that the bamboo-made cross bridge, which is part of the trail, requires careful navigation, particularly for elderly visitors. The bridge adds a touch of rustic charm to the experience, but caution is advised to ensure everyone's safety.

Another important aspect to mention is the recommendation for all tourists to hire a guide when visiting the falls. The guide can provide valuable insights about the area, ensure that visitors stay on the designated path, and guarantee a safer and more fulfilling experience overall. With their expertise, guides can enhance the journey by sharing interesting facts and stories about the falls, as well as ensuring everyone's well-being.

Overall, our trip to the famous falls in Baler was an enjoyable and memorable experience, despite the slight rain during our trek. The natural beauty, coupled with the refreshing shower at the falls, made it a worthwhile adventure. Just remember to exercise caution while crossing the bamboo bridge and consider hiring a guide to enhance your visit.

About a 25 minutes hike over rocky terrain. A guide is required 200p and a 30p entrance fee each person plus 10p if your going to park. Bring water but there are a few places to get some drinks and snacks. The waterfall is beautiful and very cold but a nice relief from the hot weather. Be sure to wear your bathing suit so you can take a dip in the cool crystal clear water. Our guide was great because my slippers broke on the way up and he gave me his to wear while he went the rest of the trip up and down with his bare feet. I don't know how he did it but I was very grateful to him!

One of our tour's best moments! It's nice to be in touch with nature. Although it's nearly a 30-minute walk to the falls, and the road is difficult because you have to duck or hold onto rocks at times, it's exhausting (please wear comfortable footwear). But I'm still in awe of the falls' beauty, and I had the chance to swim here. If you enjoy trekking, I would recommend this. Local guides are available to assist you and will take pictures of your group.

Nice water falls and a must see place in Baler. Going by tricycle you be be stopped at several places for collecting money for no reason. Government fees are nothing but the mere registration of all foreign tourist.Make sure you walk with sneakers as the roads are pretty rough, They have a picnic spot also with barbecue grills and huts.Water is cold and its really nice picturesque.

This was a definite highlight of our trip to Baler. We were a group of 7 including 2 children ages 9 and 13 and had a blast. The trek can be quite a challenge especially the places where you have to cross thigh-deep, very cold running water. You have to hold on to a rope to keep from getting swept away. Just make sure you wear proper footwear (no slippery footwear) and you'll be fine, the tour guide was also a big help. Once you reach the falls, it's definitely worth it. I did not take a swim but was soaking wet because of the power of the waterfall, there was so much humidity in the air. Amazing experience.

I wouldn’t recommend this place because mandatory tour guide makes the experience less enjoyable. I liked my guide a lot, but the fact that I had to have someone with me while on the very easy hike made the whole experience feel rushed

Known as The Mother Falls, Dimatubo Falls is one of the most popular destinations and main attractions in the town of Baler. Its crystal clear water makes the waterfall look enchanting! In addition, its strong current makes it even more beautiful. Indeed, Mother Falls is the grandest waterfall that you could ever see in the town.

A tour guide is a strict compliance for you to do the trekking and go to see Mother Falls.

It was a small easy trek going to the falls, but I’ve heard the guide told me that it’s much more difficult during the rainy seasons, but during this month even though it was a rainy season we didn’t pass any ropes to cross the river. It was probably on the month of October. The pool was not too deep, and the water current wasn’t too strong as well, very relaxing experience to swim and just chill at Ditumabo falls plus it was clean !

Also known as Mother Falls which can only be reached by 70 minutes trekking on mountainous trail. 85% of the trail is rugged and the remaining 15% is on pavement. Not for the weak heart and stiff joints. As you reach the falls itself, you can submerge yourself in the cool clean water. Don't forget your camera as the trail itself is worth every single shot.
