Looking for Gold in the Waterfalls In the Philippines

If there is one water hazard in nature that traps gold, it would be waterfalls. So let’s go and check out how to find gold here in the Philippines.

Looking for Gold in the Waterfalls in the Philippines

There’s a lot of ways to find gold, but whatever you do, don’t risk your life for it, it’s not worth it. Don’t forget the whole point of this is for you to enjoy and discover the amazing beauty of the waterfalls.

Looking for Gold in the Waterfalls

Some of the best falls to go to are the ones that don’t require a half-a-day trek to get to and have plenty of natural pools to relax in. Falls like this have a lower base and shallow pool so it will be a lot easier to see and search what it has in store for you.

Let's Prepare

Before going on this adventure you should have all the equipment that you need. If your main purpose is to search for gold then you have a lot of equipment to bring with you. From diving gear, picking tools, a pan, underwater cameras and flashlight, and many more. Consult a professional gold mining expert for the complete list of needed equipment if you really want to get serious.

It’s always good to have someone accompany you and help you bring your equipment. Gear can be heavy and most of the falls are a long walk away from the road.

But if you’re not a gold mining expert and just wanna have some experience and adventure then just bring your regular adventure pack and some goggles and you should be alright.

Looking for Gold in the Waterfalls

When you reach the falls you can start looking for signs of gold washed down from the hills above. Dive in the base of the waterfalls using your diving gear.

If the base is too small to dive in you can use your pan or your hand. Get a pile of sand from the bottom of the falls and put on the sifting pan and start shaking it in the water. As you shake it anything heavier will eventually sink down the bottom of the pan.

That’s how you separate gold from sand rocks. You can repeat these steps until you find something you are looking for. This might take some time but it will be interesting and a lot of fun.

Video of Me Looking for Gold in the Waterfalls in the Philippines

Check out this video below. This is me trying my luck looking for gold in the waterfalls in the Philippines.

Even though I didn’t find what I’m looking for it was fun and I enjoyed every moment of it. I guess you’ll never know if you’ll find any treasures, but it’s pretty fun to do it as an added activity when you visit waterfalls in the Philippines.

Whatever falls you choose to visit here in the Philippines, I assure you will have a great adventure and experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Not to mention all the selfies you can take in front of the falls.

Cheers,
Sean
