Mag-Aso Falls: When in Negros Occidental


When in Manila, and in the province of Negros Occidental in particular, the summer  is like no other! Mine started with a surprise invitation from my elder sister and her family last March 31, 2012.  There is always a first time for all of us, as the saying goes. That is why, I am so grateful I had the chance to visit Mag-Aso Falls for the first time.


 Mag-Aso Falls is one of the tourist interests of the City of Kabankalan.  It is located at the southern part of Negros Occidental.  From the capital city , the City of Smiles (Bacolod City), you will spend a travel time of more than two hours on the road.  However, it is worth the while when you reached the resort because of  the unique ambiance it presented as soon as you arrive.   


The following are the features of how the resort look like, to wit:



The entrance



The guests’ area



The cottages



The swimming pool with its flowing water from the spring.



A hundred and more steps down to reach the water falls.





The refreshing turquoise water of Mag-Aso falls! 



The entire cool view of the area.

When in Manila, there are famous resorts that are world-reknown but this  Mag-Aso Falls on this side of our province is worth a visit, too, when you are looking for a place away from the noise and traffic of the city not to mention a not-so-congested resort to relax with.  You may contact the City Government of Kabankalan under its City Economic Enterprises Development & Management Office at telephone no. (034) 471-2441.
