Recommendation by Sophia Denise Argete
Enough of mountain climbing, however. Our heavy-mileage knees and problematic lower backs can only go so far so we opted for a more leisurely destination: the Bunga Falls. We've been here before and it wasn't that difficult to find our way back. In any case, we always resort to the ultimate method to find one's way around the Philippines: ask the locals. Accompanying some friends new to Bunga Falls, we drove 4 kilometers down a well-paved road from the town center towards Barangay Bunga until we came to a sign on the left side of the road that pointed the way to the falls. We turned left along the now-partially concreted road (it was a dirt road back in 2012) to a parking lot. Paying the P25 parking fee and P5 entrance fee per person to the falls, we were told by the locals that the remaining section of the approach road is due to be concreted soon.
