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. Add Ditumabo Falls and other attractions to your Baler trip itinerary using our Baler tour planner.

    The 1.5 km ascent is necessarily worthwhile. The waterfall is spectacularly beautiful and wonderful swimming. A great nature experience not to be missed.

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.
