Balagbag falls is a two level cascade with a deep catch basin on the second cascade. The first falls is huge – more than three stories high. But the water flows softly down to dozens of small cascades like melting candle. There is no catch basin on the first falls as the water flows on to the second drop.
Aside from the two major falls there, there is a small drop midway between the two big ones. You’ll be passing by this small falls as you climb up to the first from the campsite.
The catch basin is just big enough to fit a couple of persons. Its like having your own personal cascade and hydro-massage setup. Tempting as it was, the cold water kept all of us from jumping into the small pool.
How to Get There: Ride on a bus bound for Infanta or Real Quezon (Real fare: 180 pesos). Get off at the intersection of Real-Mauban coastal road and wait for jeepneys bound for Mauban. Tell the driver to drop you near Balagbag falls. The falls is just a short hike from the road.
If its too early its best to get off at Brgy Tingoan just 2km farther from the intersection. From there you can hire a tricycle to Balagbag Falls. (Fare 150++ pesos, depending on your haggling skills) – lantaw.com
