The beach isn’t the only place you can go to for the summer. There are a lot of other destinations that you can opt to choose from. And one destination that you must not miss out for this summer is the enchanted and beautiful Mag-Aso Falls in Negros Occidental.

Mag-aso Falls, Kabankalan City - Negros Occidental

Mag-Aso falls is located in Barangay Oringao, in the city of Kabankalan, in Negros Occidental. The waterfalls’ name, Mag-Aso, originated from the hiligaynon word, aso’. Which actually means smoke. Wondering why smoke? It is because the twin falls, with the height of eight meters, create smoke after it falls.  It’s powdery blue waters is one of the major reasons why a lot of people have started to take notice of it.

And because the resort that has access to the falls is owned by the government, its prices are sure to make your pockets happy. The entrance fee to see this wonderful waterfalls is only 50 Php per person. And that price can even be lowered if you’re a student or a senior citizen. If you want a comfortable place to settle and stay in while you’re in the resort, its cottage prices vary from prices of 100 Php to 1000 Php. You can choose which one you’d prefer. Of course, you prefer to spend the night, it is best to book ahead before your actual trip.

There is a manmade pool inside and its water comes from the falls itself. The pool would be a great place for children to swim and enjoy because it is quite shallow compared to the main waterfalls which might be too deep for their age.

  3. Judging your photos, the place looks very maintained and safe. It's rare to see a leisure park this clean and less crowded given that the land is owned by the local Government. It's worth a trip for a minimal fee. Thank you for sharing this travel experience to us!
