Bangon Falls ,Samar island, Philippines


Address -: Bangon Falls ,Catbalogan ,Calbayog City, Samar island, Philippines

Bangon-Bugtong Falls is located in Barangay San Joaquin, Calbayog City, Samar. Calbayog City also called the “City of Waterfalls” because there are more than 20 waterfalls in the area. One of those is the Bangon-Bugtong Falls. Traveling to this waterfall from Calbayog entails a 1-hour and 15-minute ride to Barangay Tinaplacan, and then a 3-kilometer walk from the highway. You can also opt to ride a habal-habal, a motorcycle with extended seats and an extra shock absorber for passing through rougher terrains and steep mountain roads.
Bangon-Bugtong Falls has an estimated height of 60 meters. It is a system of cascades that you need to walk on to get to the main falls. Like any other waterfall, it has some slippery parts covered with moss so you have to be careful in your ascent. At the topmost part is a circular pond about 30 meters in diameter which is wide enough for swimming and deep enough for diving. The water seems to come from an endless stream and it forms a swirling path as it falls down the rock formations. It is a very refreshing sight.
