Mag Aso Falls

An off-the-beaten-path attraction that is not yet known to many Bohol visitors is Mag-Aso Falls, beautiful twin falls that can be found at the bottom of a deep gorge.

The most distinct sounds you’ll hear here are that of the birds and the strong rushing current from the falls — sounds that are surprisingly calming. Lush trees and a variety of green vegetation surround the falls complementing its clean, turquoise waters, making anyone feel like they’re in an enchanted place. Visitors need to hurdle 197 steps just to get to the falls — a challenge that will eventually be compensated by a relaxing, meditative, and fun experience at the falls. Be warned, though, its tempting waters — coming from an 8-metre drop cascading down a deep pool — can convince even the most reluctant of swimmers.
