Nice over nighter Negros Occidental

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For those of us that enjoy some rather untouristy hikes with nice water falls Guintubdan could be of interest. Especially if visiting Negros Occidental

Situated on the foothills of Canlaon national park at about 900 meters elevation. The local government to their credit take nature very seriously and several penalties apply to any offenders. Even carabols are not allowed and pigs are limited to 1 per family. Nature is quite outstanding.

Hikes range from a long day taking in 30 falls believe 36 km to modest Hikes around 2 hours or so.

We took in 3 of the nearer falls as arrived around 2pm. Mostly reasonable going with some areas quite difficult, falls were very serene lovely for a swim although water was very cold. No garbage and just saw a couple of locals swimming. According to our guide (compulsory) few foreigners visit here.

It's pretty accessible from Bacolod vicinity, we stayed at Pavilion where the rooms were basic but sufficient. Cost was P1000 and very cold at night, one must bring blankets. Also there is a spectacular couple of  falls below the Pavillion, an easy 10 minute walk, down concrete stairs.

I try an upload a few pics
