Igpasungaw Waterfalls in Sebaste

Thought I’d check out these falls so drove up to Sebaste, but with my trike at 40km/hr I just flew past this little town. Apparently I blinked at the wrong moment. Drove back and found lodging at the Petron gas station for 1000p/night, and some fancy resort with no one there (but a phone number) on the other side of town past the bridge for 1,500p/night.

Decided to cruise around town at the slowest speed possible and stumbled upon a bloke with tel. no. 0912 804 7310 who directed me to this nice little shack:


for only 400p/night for simple fan room. Across the street you can swim in the pool for free, same establishment:


Here’s a map of the town:


This Inland Resort is the star just under Galido Street. I was recommended to eat at Kusinas and was quite happy. You can get beers to take home for the regular grocery store price too. Nice atmosphere and everyone in town seems to go there.

Across the street from Petron, a bit further out of town, is the only bar I could find, a girly typical cheesy karaoke bar, but they didn’t seem so friendly to me.

On the main drag (orange highway 501) there is a mechanic who replaced my ballbearings with quality Japanese ones at a 20 minute operation for only 250p. Inexpensive town with few tourists I guess. Just down the main drag from that is the veggie shop, usually open only mornings.

Booked a few nights and off it was to explore the falls:

Took a while to figure out the new app, but managed to record from the falls back to the Inland Resort, where I was staying.

Here’s the stats:


Below pics start from the resort, ending at the falls.




The path can be difficult to follow in some places, so suggest a tourguide, which you can arrange through the number above, or just ask anyone.


At 250p, a good deal. But they apparently implemented a new system whereby you are supposed to pay in addition a 50p environmental fee. When they tried to collect (after the tour was over) I told them they can basically blow me and I am not paying any environmental fee because I saw occasional garbage along the path. Apparently they think charge first, do the job later. Hopefully this will be sorted by the time you get there.



Lots of minifalls along the way.






Some secret passages which could be hard to find without a guide.




If you ‘d like to combine this with a more extensive tour package:

This is a must to do!!Super ultimate tour is the best with Kayangan and barracuda lake, twin lagoons (my favorite), coral garden (blue fabulous coral) were the best. It’s really worth it to pay for private tour (3500 to 4000 PHP). You will also have to pay for entrance fees (150 to 200PHP by location) and eventually shopping at the market - must do (count 300 for 2 for fish, pork, fruits and vegetables, water).

I was looking for a personalized excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Bacuit.Seeing the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The flight attendants were very friendly and very helpful.And I'm not even talking about the meal on board...a marvel.In all fairness, this excursion will remain an excellent memory and I cannot recommend Mel and his team highly enough.A big thank-you.

This tour went well above all our expectations! I couldn't recommend this enough! The boat crew, captain and tour guide were nothing but amazing, everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. The crew knew the best spots to visit that weren't overcrowded with tourists, 3 times we were lucky enough to have whole islands to ourselves! It was my partner's birthday while away and everything went above and beyond, bonfire, cake, birthday card, singing and celebrating with us.If you love camping this is definitely a tout you should do, it has been the highlight of our trip!!

Coron is the best place i have ever seen.. picturesque. Beautiful. Peaceful
We booked a 4 days/3 nights private boat trip from Coron to Sibaltan. The organization went very well from the beginning, the owner answered to all my questions, and we were able to choose which islands to visit and where to sleep. The first night we slept in a bungalow in Banana Island, the second we camped in Araw beach and the last we slept in a seafront bungalow builded on a tree in Pical on Iloc Island.The islands in that area are the most beautiful islands I have ever seen, with clear water, lots of coral reef and fishes to see, white sand and almost deserted. The crew was very friendly and polite and they organize every single meal and for camping they give you a tent which was just perfect! This was our highlight in our 2 weeks in the Philippines and I wish I had booked a longer trip. A private trip gives you the freedom to decide where and when to go.
