Ambon-Ambon Falls: Pangil’s Nature Sanctuary

A beautiful falls is waiting to be discovered deep within the municipality of Pangil Laguna. The place, being only a 3 to 4 hour drive away from the country’s capital (Manila), makes it an ideal spot of refuge especially for those folks dwelling in the city.

The Ambon-Ambon Falls is situated in Pangil River Eco Park at Laguna Philippines. Aside from the famous trek to Ambon-Ambon falls, the park also offers a variety of activities.

A hanging bridge welcomes the visitors entering the park. Beneath the bridge is a river connected to the Ambon-Ambon falls itself. Visitors will surely enjoy taking pictures of the stunning view it offers.

Alongside the river are cottages that can be rented once you enter the park. Visitors are encouraged to sulk and enjoy the cool waters of the river.

The trek to Ambon-Ambon falls starts near the hanging bridge. The total time of the trek is about 30 minutes. Several landmarks including the biak-na-bato (halved stone) and the barkong bato (ship-shaped rock) are popular spots for taking a picture. There is even a part during the trip that you would have to ride a balsa ( improvised boat made of bamboo) in order to get to the other side of the river. Check out some of our pictures during the trip below:

After a 30-minute-nature-packed-trekking, we were able to reach Ambon-Ambon Falls. You will feel a strong gust of wind hitting your face even from a good distance away from the falls. The roaring water below is like an invitation to my ears to dive right in. Without much ado, Sandra and I went to the falls and enjoyed a rare shower experience.

Unfortunately, all things do come to an end. The same thing applies to our refreshing bath in the falls. Reluctantly, the two of us agreed to come back to the cottage to prepare for departure. The tour guide offered us to try water tubing when going down the river. Being new to the concept, I asked the tour guide what it is. I am not disappointed.

Water tubing- you get to ride rubber inflated liferings and allow the current of the river to propel you until you reach the cottage area.

Overall, the trip to the Ambon-Ambon falls is satisfactory. The activities that the park offers are also quite cheap, along with the cabin rental prices and other amenities. To have an idea of the prices, check itย  here.

I recommend this place especially to all those travelers who are tight on budget. Also, if you get a chance to visit Laguna Philippines, why not stop by the park and see the beauty for yourself.
