Nestled at the foot of Mount Malinao are the famous Vera Falls, a destination in Malinao, Albay that boasts of enchanting cascades, and clean mountain water that beckons visitors to dive into the cool, refreshing pool.
Yes, there’s more to Albay than the beloved Mount Mayon and the nearby Cagsawa Ruins Park — in fact, these two are just a preview of what’s to see in town. Located in a secluded part of Albay’s outskirts, you can find Vera Falls with its impressive greenery, stunning cascades, tempting pools, and the relaxing atmosphere that can make you forget the pains of traveling. Though the way to Vera Falls only requires some downhill sauntering, the way back presents a challenge — a challenge one would readily take if it means experiencing one of Albay’s hidden natural sights.
Vera Falls is located in Malinao, Albay.
