What You Can Expect

Pagsanjan Falls Adventure from Manila

Pagsanjan Falls

Meet your guide at morning pickup from your city hotel in Manila or Makati, and relax during the 2.5-hour drive south to Pagsanjan Gorge National Park, where you'll embark on a scenic boat ride aboard a dugout canoe called a banca. 

En route to Pagsanjan, your vehicle stops at a local village where you can taste local delicacies including fertilized duck egg, called balut. Then enjoy a refreshing coconut drink before you slip on your life vest and float through the narrow Pagsanjan gorge lined with lush tropical vegetation. 

Two expert boatmen skillfully maneuver your craft upstream to Pagsanjan Falls. You’ll dock at a natural pool below the majestic cascade and take an optional raft ride to a hidden cave, where you can swim and explore — so prepare to get wet!

After some free time to frolic in the water, return downstream as your river guides steer past huge boulders in churning waters at top speeds during an exhilarating ride known as ‘shooting the rapids.'

Conclude your full-day tour with a Filipino lunch buffet at the visitor’s center. Feast on a variety of traditional dishes and listen to a live band play music during your meal. Afterward, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.

Even though it rained this was a very fun trip down the river to see the Pagsanjan Falls. The lunch that was included was very authentic and delicious as well.

I went on this tour as a typhoon was moving in, and I would still recommend it. The views as you go up river are stunning, and so much fun to go under the falls.

Fantastic trip away from the hectic Manila! The falls are very beautiful! Don't miss out the chance to boat in the back of the falls:) On the way to the falls, we also stopped at some local vendors and tried out some local sweets, as well as the notorious balut! ohhh I had such a blast!

The entire trip was really good. However, the price is too expensive as the locals says with this price, you can pay for 2. Not forgetting you need to pay for the boat driver tip of about 10USD each.

The drive to the falls takes about 2-2.5 hours. The guide will talk the whole way be prepared. The trip up and back on the river takes about 2 hours and is fantastic. You will get wet. Take a towel, change of clothes and shoes. Suggest lunch after the boat trip so have a big breakfast.
