Lanao Del Norte | Pagayawan Waterfall of Bacolod is Epic

Here come the Waterfalls! Pagayawan waterfall is another masterpiece of Lanao Del Norte; so called as the waterfalls capital of the Philippines. Located in Barangay Pagayawan in the small town of Bacolod, Pagayawan Falls has taken the spots as another prospect tourism attraction that will be added to its natures epic collections of the province. Must visit this enchanting waterfall and have a chance to get a shot to one of the most beautiful and amazing waterfalls in the Island of Mindanao.  



Pagayawan Falls described as the less-visited waterfalls in the province by most travel articles I've read because of its challenging roads which are unpaved. But, that was before; roads are widely concreted now from the downtown Bacolod up to the view deck. Pagayawan falls is located in Barangay Pagayawan, the place is safe as I observed a military Camp base in the area.  From the crossing, just take a 10 to 15-minute motorcycle ride to reach the waterfalls view deck. Of course, you need much time to walk down through the mouth once you are willing to experienced to get closer to the waterfalls threshold.  


The waterfalls have unique dense with an estimated eighty-five (85) feet height with a series of tiny waterfalls flowing throughout the entrance.  Old folks say that the water flows towards the main crater are coming from the Lanao Lake, which considered as one of the largest lakes in the Philippines, expected that you will feel stronger and powerful cascading waters and sparks that can make you wet.
