Posts Tagged ‘Dumaguete’

I have been to Valencia many times before because my late uncle lived there for several years.  But only two years ago, I was able to visit Casaroro Falls.  Ten kilometers west of Dumaguete City (Negros Oriental, Philippines), lies the magnificent Casaroro Falls considered being the most photographed waterfall in Negros province.  Despite steep trails, still many people dare to go and behold the incredible Casaroro crowned jewel.  The Casaroro Falls is a 30-minute ride from the “The City of Gentle People”.  Getting there is a ride worth of excitement, quest and remarkable nature expedition.

We took a private van.  Another option would be to take a multi cab or jeep from Dumaguete City for less than 20Php then ask the driver to be dropped in central Valencia.  From there, take another 20-minute ride by means of “habal-habal”, a motorcycle turned public transport, to along the mountain.  Then, begin the hike.

The Casaroro Falls is a natural attraction hidden in the town of Valencia in Negros Oriental, Philippines.  It is considered to be the most photographed waterfalls in the entire Negros Province.  Casaroro Falls is lodged deep into the rock crevices of the rugged Valencia mountains.  This falls has a narrow opening cascade with an astounding height of 100 feet.

Casaroro’s pristine waters plunge straight into a deep cold basin before it falls down to a stream.  This makes the waters drop heavily and causes a massive growl to resonate all over the place. The roaring sound that the water makes as it thrusts sounds like nature’s therapy creates a surreal sentiment to every sightseer’s soul.  Around the basin are enormous boulders enough to rest one’s tired feet.

Tourists and adventure-seekers that dare see this wonder must trek a 300-something step concrete stairs that lazes in a steep gorge.  And can you imagine? I did take the challenge!  It was very exhausting.  I feel like I lost a few pounds.  But when you reach the bottom, you’ll surely find zen and serenity.  Nature lovers who wish to seek tranquil moments would definitely enjoy the surrounding highlights. All of the efforts and sacrifices in getting through the relentless terrain of rocky heap will truly be paid off.
