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.
