Mag-aso falls is located at Antequera, Bohol. Approximately 30 minutes away from Tagbilaran City.
There is a P30 parking fee and P20 entrance fee for each person. They also offer rentals of life vest and cottage. But since it is not crowded at that time, they let us use the cottage for free.
If you have read my post about Ambon-ambon falls, it was the first falls I have encountered and that is why I am so happy to meet Mag-Aso falls! It is much bigger, larger and beautiful and I had the chance to bathe in it!
But before you see this beauty you have to trek down the 197 steps. Going down is very easy, since it was raining you just have to be careful because the way down is very slippery. While going up is another story. Going up gave me a heartburn, reminding me to hit the gym ASAP. :D
Yipee! Hello falls, I can swin but I did not dare to go in the middle because there are no on lookers to save me if in case anything happens. The current was really strong and I don't know whats on the other end, so might as well be safe nlang.
And since I did not do my research about the place, while doing this post I came across this article. Last 2009 there was a flash flood in Mag-aso falls killing two people. The flash flood was due to the heavy rain that day. Scary right? And also at the time we we're there it was also raining hard. I am so thankful that nothing happened to us like this. Check the full story at -> http://blog.venganza.org/17.php. I pray for their souls.
I have not read this article before we went there, but I don't know if it will change my mind about going. Maybe yes and maybe not, but just a little caution on people who wants to visit the place. This makes me remember something from Chyng Reyes blog...
It's just very hard to imagine that something this majestic can be destructive at the same time.
