Kabigan Falls, Pagudpud

One of the main attractions and a must-go-to destination in Pagudpud is the 80 feet waterfall Kabigan Falls. This enchanting waterfalls is located at the eastern part of Barangay Balaoi and is about a 30 minute walk from the national highway.

Although it is a 30-minute walk (about 1.8 kilometers), trekking is not boring because of the spectacular views of thick foliage, farms and native huts. Plus you will pass by at least three streams of shallow river on your way to the falls. The sight and the sound of the place definitely is pleasurable leading to the spectacular falls.

The falls itself is famous for its concave basin where trekkers, after a long walk, could reward themselves with a dip in a natural pond just below the falls.

Here are some photos I have taken of and on the way to Kabigan Falls:


This cool hut will mark the start of the walk.



Trekkers enjoying a refreshing dip below the falls.



Passing this river could be quite a challenge.

The gushing sound of river makes the trip more fascinating.

  26. I was born and grew up in an interior town in Ilocos Sur, and we also have lots of rivers and falls like these. medyo nagda-dry nga lang pag summer, so maganda lang puntahan during rainy seasons...

  31. @ ely - isn't it ironic? pag tag-araw at madali puntahan, wala ka masyado makikita falls pero pag mahurap puntahan tsaka naman maganda magpunta. ang galing talaga ng nature no?
