Have you ever thought about visiting some of the beautiful waterfalls in the Philippines for a weekend getaway or on your next trip to the Philippines?

There are several waterfalls, natural pools, and fun places to explore in the jungles of the Philippines. Below you will find some of the beautiful Philippines waterfalls we went to.

First through, sometimes people ask me… “What is there to do when you get to the waterfalls?”

Things to do when Visiting the Beautiful Waterfalls in the Philippines

Well, there’s a lot more to do than just go stair at cascading water falling from the mountainside. Here are some ideas to get the gears in your mind turning.

They are as follows:

  • Trekking to the Waterfalls
  • Have a Picnic with Your Friends and Family
  • Work on Your Photography Skills
  • Get Your Phone or Video Camera Out and Create a Video
  • Relax Near the Falls and Take a Nap
  • Swim in the Natural Pools the Falls Make
  • Cliff Jumping
  • Meet Other Adventure Seeking Waterfalls Visitors
  • Try Your Hand at Painting the Waterfalls
  • or Maybe a Romantic Kiss Under the Falls ????

There are so many things to do, really it’s up to your imagination to do the things that you most enjoy. Hopefully, though that list will get you started with some ideas.

Now, let’s move on to the waterfall videos.

Playing in the Beautiful Waterfalls in the Philippines

Finding beautiful spots in the Philippines is a lot of fun and exciting as well. However, some of these beautiful falls are really hard to get to, and if you don’t know the place you might need to have a guide to avoid getting lost.

To get to the falls sometimes you need to walk through the jungle and cross rivers, this might sound exhausting but when you arrive at the falls, all that you’ve been through will be worth it.

The video above is one of the beautiful places I found on one of my travels here in the Philippines. It was amazing. The water is so clean, fresh air and a stunning view.

The locals and I enjoyed swimming and jumping off the cliff to the cool and clean pool below. This was one of the most awesome and wonderful adventures I had in 2016.

Looking for Treasure in the Waterfalls in the Philippines

This is another amazing place I found here in the Philippines. Here I decided to go treasure hunting in the falls.

While I was in the pool enjoying the cool and freshwater I saw a big hole. I wanted to go into but I didn’t have a light to explore further. Watch to see…

Most people think you can only do treasure hunting in the oceans. While diving shipwrecks and finding lost gold is a lot of fun, treasure hunting in the waterfalls can be a fun way to do it too and much easier aside from the hike to your location.

When you are treasure hunting in these falls, you don’t really know what you’re looking for until you find it. That’s where the next question comes in, ” Is there gold in the waterfalls in the Philippines?”

Is there Gold in the Waterfalls in the Philippines?

If there is one water hazard in nature that traps gold, it would be the waterfalls.

Most of the waterfalls in the Philippines are hidden and hard to find or get to. So there’s a big chance that some valuable stuff like natural treasures or hidden gold might be found.
