    your blog is very informative and entertaining as well. However, gusto ko lang din itanong kung yung shooting the rapids fee na 200php all in na (boat ride, helmet, life jacket, guiding fee etc…)?

    i just wanna clarify somethin: you said that they do NOT allow tourists to take the Cavinti route but you were able to take that route when you were there….So did you ask for their permission? ;-)I'm planning to go to Pagsanjan Falls via Cavinti next weekend….Hope you can answer my inquiry…tia!

    the local government highly recommends for tourists to take Pagsanjan… Kuya U-tol, our guide in Cavinti, told us that there were already agreements on this. Before, Pueblo also got a lot of packages for the Pagsanjan Falls Adventure, but since agreement has already been laid out, the said ecopark doesnt have any tour packages anymore.Hmmm.. we did not ask for permission. Ahm.. we made friends with the bangkeros instead? We asked them to let us try the shooting the rapids. πŸ™‚

    pahabol, nung nakababa na kau pala sa rappelling part sumakay pa kau ng boat to the main falls? iif so magkano bayad? at kung hindi naman.. malapit lng ba lalakarin?salamat po ulet.. planning to get to Magdapio Falls via Cavinti rout this friday.Main concern is the way back.. is there any options that i can take the rapids back to pagsanjan oo aakyatin ulet ung mahabang hangdan sa eco part? (may nagbabantay din ba dun pabalik sa park?)salamat ulet! apir!-doy

  23.  Avatar

    Sir Doy, yung bayad po sa shooting the rapids is P200.00, iba pa po yun sa P200 for the Eco Park entrance.. tip namin dun sa bangkero? nilibre nami sila ng softdinks dun sa Talahib Falls. mga kaibigan sila nung taga-Pueblo kaya okay na yun.. nag tip kami ng 100 dun sa guide sa Pueblo kasi hinatid nila kami hanggang sakayan kasi pauwi na rin sila.Pagkababa niyo sa rapelling, konti na lang ang lalakarin mo. same distance lang ang lakarin if Pagsanjan ang pinanggalingan mo. For you to get to the main falls, regardless kung Pagsanjan or Cavinti ang way, sasakay ng raft/balsa. Wala na dapat bayad yun if galing ka sa Cavinti. Pero pag galing ka ng Pagsanjan, alam ko they charge another P150.00 for the raft ride.There are NO OPTIONS for you to take Pagsanjan pauwi if sa Cavinti ka galing kasi pinagbabawal nila yun. Akala din namin pwede pero yun, kailangan mo talagang umakyat pabalik so make sure na may baon kang maraming tubig. Yes, may nagbabantay dun and for each route (Pagsanjan or Cavinti) merong parang guestbook kung saan isusulat yung name mo when you get there, at kung aong oras ka bumalik with your signatture, kaya super safe.

    wow! Thank you sa details.pano pala ung sakayan ng pauwi na from pueblo? may mga bannkero naman dun sa main falls na pwedeng iRent to Tlahib Falls para kumain? maraming salamat tlga!Exited nko sa FRIDAY! RAIN OR SHINE! YAHOOOOOOOO!! APIR!doy

    Yeaaah! Apir!ay, oo nga pala. KUNIN mo YUNG CELLPONE NUMBER nung Tricycle DRiver na maghahatid sa inyo sa Pueblo para itext mo na lang siya pag pauwi na kayo. Kasi hindi namin nagawa yun, super bihira lang yung trike na dumadaan dun kaya ang ending naglakad kami ng mga 1-2 kms pabalik dun sa may sakayan. Masaya naman kasi nalibot namin ang town ng Cavinti heheYung makukuha niyo na bangka para mag shooting the rapids kayo, yun na rin yung magdadala sa inyo sa Talahib Falls.

    hi salamat dito sa blog mo at ito ang aming naging guide para sa aming Pagsanjan Trip. Di kami nakapagshooting the rapids at bumalik kami sa Cavinti. Grabeng lakaran paakyat pero kinaya rin naman namin, iyon nga lang ilang araw masakit ang buong katawan ko.

    Hi, Thanks for this post, it's very informative. However, I have questions (sorry mejo redundant). So you said you befriended your boatmen and asked them to let you try the Shooting the Rapids, now, does this mean that there's a bigger chance that I won't be able to experience the rapids cause it's not really legal? My main concern is to make sure I'd be able to experience them both, the Cavinti trek and the rapids, when I go there next week with my boyfriend for our anniversary- date-adventure. :)Oh and, is there any locker facilities anywhere near Pueblo el Salvador Park where we could store our stuff to keep them safe and dry (and to keep ourselves from the hassle of carrying them the whole time)?Thanks a lot,Sharla

    Hi Sharla! There are no lockers in Pueblo El Salvador where you can put your things. Just make sure to put them inside ziplock plastics.The boatmen and the guide told us that it's no longer legal, but they are kind enough to let you try the rapids. Just use some of your convincing power. :)Anyways, Happy Anniversary! πŸ˜€

    Hi…Thanks for informing us. We're planning to go to Pagsanjan via Cavinti on Sunday para mas cheaper ang gastos. Meron kayang safe parking space sa Pueblo? Gusto naming magdala ng pack lunch. Would it be possible? Meron bang makakainan doon in a picnic style? Thanks.

    Hi,Pwede nyong i-park yung car nyo dun sa taas. sa mismong pueblo eco park, i think safe naman dun. for packed lunch, yes you may bring pero maaari nyo sigurong kainin yun sa eco park and hindi sa baba, sa may bandang falls… dun sa baba, merong stopover para makainan.

    @ Marjorie,Parang may kubo dun. Actually, mesa na may bubong na pawid. Pwede mo iwan yung gamit mo dun, pwede mo isabit. Madami nga lang langgam. Doon din tumatambay yung ibang bangkero ang guide na nag-aantay pa nung mga nagra-raft. Safe naman, doon ko nilagay yung akin. Pero wag ka na lang din magdala ng kung ano-anong masyadong mahalagang bagay para di ka kinakabahan

    hello, im from cavinti, the reason kaya may conflict sila sa route kase nag-aagawan kung kanino talaga ang falls, mejo may away ang cavinti and pagsanjan, before lahat ng revenues from the falls nakukuha ng pagsanjan, now, sa cavinti na kase pinaglaban ng mayor namin yung rights namin jan. madaming issue noon kaya siguro kanya kanya na sila ng way para kumita. dati pwede naman yung bababa ka using cavinti route then pagbalik mo magshooting the rapids ka, ewan ko bakit biglang may ganyan na sila. Simula nung nakuha ng Cavinti ang falls, parang lahat ng taga pagsanjan galit sa amin, tulad nung pumunta kame sa “Tabing-Ilog” mas mahal yung siningil samin na entrance fee kase taga-cavinti daw kame.pero syempre irerecommend ko na gamitin nyo ang Cavinti Route kase mas may thrill. Enjoy kayo!

    Hi Sir/Maam,Thanks for sharing. Yun nga din yung mga naging kwento sa amin nung guide namin na si Kuya U-tol. Pinag-aagawan kung kanino ba talaga dapat mapabiling ang famous Pagsanjan Falls. Kasi geographically speaking, it should belong to Cavinti kaya lang parang ang naging premise is since yung falls ay matagal nang kilalang Pagsanjan Falls kaysa Cavinti Falls dapat daw ay mapabilang sa Pagsanjan. Kaya noong mga panahong pumunta kami dyan ay pinagbabawal ang pagdaan sa Cavinti Route.Pero definitely, mas recommended at prefer ko ang pagdaan sa Cavinti. Para hindi lang yung kagandahan ng Pagsanjan Falls ang makikita mo kung hindi pati yung adventure.Salamat ulit!

    It was so tiring, but when you get to the falls,you'll say it's worth it. thanks for the tips chasing phil… anyway, does anybody know kuya Utol's new number. the umber posted above says it's unattended. we left our camera there, and only kuya utol would know where it is as he was the only one left there at that time..we were the last group of people to leave the place. Kuya Utol chose to stay there when we told him to come with us. I hope i could still get it back since that's the only camera we brought. :'(
