Malatan-of Falls

Recommended Posts

Went for a short drive yesterday to Don Salvador as decided to visit the above after 4 year.  Its much cooler here with temps around 25 during day time at moment.

There is no problem here being out and about regardless of age, just best to have a mask if in public areas. Many small coffee chops have sprouted and most were busy, something akin to a sari sari shop, one opens next dozens in area. Anyway, I remembered the track down which was noticeably improved with the addition of concrete steps, at least in the beginning. 

The hike down is around 45 minutes with a few areas being difficult, at least for me! My partner had no such problem. Met by a local guy about halfway whom offered to join us, sure no problem, was expecting a demand for money at conclusion....Pity I am so suspicion as all he wanted was to sell us a lot of 100Sq for P150,000 so we could have a garden.....My partner is garden mad and always stopping to examine plants, (stole a few also)

The falls would be around 70 meters at a guess, pretty nice and spotlessly clean, very swim able how ever not for these old bones as extremely cold...... We enjoyed lunch amid the spray, and was a welcome break from being semi locked up last months. 

Oh we were informed that charges apply like in pretty much every national park area. As we went down the old track nobody saw us, normally its P50 for a local and....(which i hate) P150 for a long nose. Includes a guide that is not required. Much as I dislike this one must think well lets hope it goes to people in need.... Nice afternoon entertainment.

You know, RBM can really tell a story. It's like we were there our selves too Tommy.

Excellent but missing the photos of some beautiful Filipinas frolicking in the water!  :biggrin:

My wife and older daughter have been watching a lot of Philippines travel Vlogs.  They visit some really beautiful places, and often do have some beautiful girls frolicking in the water, so I don't mind watching too!  I would love to visit them and we are actually making a list, but those that require a 45 minute hike will have to wait until after hip surgery!

Is it the waterfall or the beautiful frolicking girls that will have to wait until after your hip surgery? :mocking:

 Sorry about the chicks.....quite a remote area for people to visit  as track is very steep in places. My partner refused to swim or even remove her light jacket, temps drop in this area as does the water temps.
