Pagsanjan falls Packages

Shoot the rapids

or take the vertical trek


Pagsanjan falls, also known as Magdapio, is a popular one-day tourist spot in the Philippines. The drive to Laguna is idyllic with panoramic vistas of farmers working on their rice fields and Mt. Makiling towering over them. The province is known for wood sculptors, cheese makers and agricultural people. The locals love to share their mountains and rivers to visitors. TRIPinas offer two different packages to reach this wonderful cascade! For those who are water babies through-and-through, the banca ride plus bamboo raft option is perfect for you. It is perfect for those traveling with little kids or the elderly. Those who seek a little more adventure can opt for the second option, which is a combination of hiking, rappelling down steel ladders, and bamboo raft ride under the waterfalls to go inside the Devil's cave. We can provide pick-up/drop-off land transfer if you are coming from Manila. If you have your own vehicle or do not mind taking the public bus, we can definitely give you instructions on how to reach the jump-off point. Whatever option you choose, we guarantee you a safe and enjoyable day trip.

PAGSANJAN FALLS VIA BOAT RIDE

Hop on a canoe powered-steered only by the arms and legs of two boatmen! Marvel at their harmonious work, skills and strength as they maneuver through tight corners and big boulders to go up the river rapids. On your way, you will have interesting encounters with the wildlife by the riverbanks. Snap photos of monitor lizards, egrets and carabaos that are fed by the Bumbungan river. Watch the local community as they go on with their daily lives fishing and selling local sweets. Board the man-made bamboo raft to go inside the Devil's cave and experience the best shower you can ever have! This day trip can be easily arranged from Manila. Let us know if you need us to provide pick-up/drop-off and we'll be glad to arrange that for you. We also accept lunch pre-orders, just advise us before hand or during your booking


SHOOTING THE RAPID (BOAT RIDE)





PAGSANJAN FALLS VIA TREKKING

So you want a combination of hiking, rappeling and water activity, eh? Then this one is made for you! Hike through a forested area and don your harness, helmet then clip yourself to a rope as you rappel down a series of steel ladders to reach the pool of Pagsanjan falls. This will definitely test your stamina and patience! But don't worry because what awaits you at the bottom is worth the effort and the cool waters will refresh you from the challenge you just finished. Hop on the raft and head towards the Devil's cave. Go under the waterfalls and have your sweat washed away by the strong cascade of water. Your sore muscles will definitely be soothed by nature's hydro-massage. This tour can be easily arranged from Manila with land transfers from and to your residence. It is also a cheaper way to visit this site.


THE VERTICAL TREK (TREKKING)




FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

❶ Where is Pagsanjan? The waterfalls itself is located in Cavinti, Laguna and is officially called Magpadapio falls. Since the popular route to get there is by taking a boat from Pagsanjan town in Laguna, it has been called Pagsanjan falls (a misnomer).
❷ You mean there is more than one way to reach the water falls? Absolutely! The first option is to take the boat to reach the site. The second option is to start from Cavinti and use steel ladders to descend from a forest park to the pool area of the falls. Both options will take you to the same spot with the first option (shooting the rapids) more pricey considering the use of boat for the trip.
❸ Can we combine both options (i.e. use vertical ladders one way and the boat on the return, or vice-versa)? For the moment, this option is not available due to restrictions from the two municipalities involved (Pagsanjan and Cavinti)
❹ How high is the falls? Records say that the longest drop is 120 meters high.
❺ How long is the trip? Both options take roughly three hours, round trip.
❻ When is the best time to visit ? It can be accessed all year except when there is a strong rain which makes the water level on the river dangerously high or the descend with the steel ladders treacherous.
❼ Is it safe for kids? We accept children as long as they can sit down on a boat unsupported (if using option 1) or can walk unsupervised (option 2). Children must be accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian.
❽ Can I bring my elderly parents? As long as they don't have mobility issues, we can have them on the tour. Please understand that due to the nature of the terrain, the rocks on the area are slick and slipping can happen.
