Ditumabo Falls, Baler

4.3
#1 of 18 in Things to do in Baler
Swim in the refreshingly cool and clear water of a lagoon below Ditumabo Falls, locally known as "Mother Falls" for their sheer size, with water dropping some 40 m (140 ft) from the mountain plateau. To reach the waterfall, you'll need to track dusty roads through lush vegetation, wade through a shallow stream, and walk over large, slippery stones. You can shorten the route by riding a motorbike down the bumpy road that leads to the hydroelectric plant. If you get hungry, look out for the stalls with grilled corn and rice cakes lining the trail.

  • Hike was good, make sure to wear proper shoes. If wearing sandals/slippers make sure you are comfortable and watch out when crossing the water, some rocks are really slippery.  more »

Where to stay in Baler

Hang out along Baler's Sabang Beach, where the majority of the city' accommodation is located. Here you'll find a range of options, from budget inns, surf houses, and rentals to more luxurious resorts and hotels. Waves reaching 2.7 m (9 ft) high attract crowds of surfer tourists between September and February, making it the the city's peak season. Though it's a popular destination year-round and you should always reserve your room ahead of time, it's even more important to reserve far in advance if you're coming in this peak season.
