It's good they let this place stay in its unspoiled natural conditon. Only nipa cottages on the banks for day-tour visitors. A well-placed big flat rock on the left side is a favorite diving platform for those who dare to dive 8m high down to the 6m deep basin formed at the base of the falls. The basin is wide enough to do some backstroke/freestyle swimming from end to end.

At the top of the falls is a small basin 2m deep. The flowing water into this small basin sculptured a natural slide on the rock. Great fun sliding and get submerged in the bubbling water. Many shallow natural bathtubs around can be a safe and fun place for the kids.

During the rainy season, be extra careful, the rocks are slippery.

Address: Border of Sta Praxedes and Claveria
Directions: The 2 km long dirt road from the National Highway (Km. 604) at Brgy. Lablabig leads you to this place and can be reached by vehicles. During rainy season when the road is slippery, good driving skills needed.
