Magaso Falls, Barangay Oringao, Kabankalan, Negros Occidental, Philippines
Mag-Aso a 75-meter high waterfalls that creates a smoky-like foggy effect with a clear turquoise green water is a perfect summer getaway and must-see destination for nature lovers, like me. The refreshing air, cool ambiance, relaxing gush of the water and beautiful green trees and flowers will surely take all your stress away. I remember during my college days this used to be our bonding place and escape from the busy college-life. Kabankalan is a first class and second wealthiest city in Negros Occidental. It is also tagged as one of the cleanest city Negros Occidental.
My last visit to Mag-Aso Falls was back in April 2015 when I went home for my sisters wedding. My college mates and I had a mini reunion (we were only 9 in our batch so it wasn’t that hard to call for a reunion) and of course where else should we go? Since it was summer time, we all agreed to visit Mag-Aso Falls.
There were quite few renovations and additions to the camp but it’s refreshing ambiance was still the same. The swimming pools greeted us as we walk towards our cottage and it’s as if inviting us to plunge in the water. There were two pools in the area, one for the adults and one for the kids. The water that fills the pool also comes from the falls so there is really no need for you to wear proper swimming attire like swimsuit or trunks but if you really want to, by all means you are free to wear those.
There are different cottages stationed in the area. There are also few picnic tables that you can use in case the cottages are fully booked. As of the moment, there are two villas available if you want to stay overnight. Restrooms are also available but there’s a one-time 2 peso charge, I guess this will be use for the maintenance and/or salary of those who are maintaining the comfort rooms. Don’t lose your ticket as you will be showing it to the person in charge whenever you have to use the comfort rooms.
