PulangBato Falls, Valencia 


Located in the town of Valencia in Negros Oriental lies the haven of beautiful and soothing waterfalls. One of which is the famous Pulangbato Falls in Valencia or also known as the Malabo. Not only this place is famous for the locals but also for the neighboring place like Dumaguete City due to the close distance proximity. This waterfall is one of the Twin Falls found in the Barangay of Malabo. There are two cascading falls emerging from two different water sources from the high mountain.

The difference between these two falls is that the other one has clear and narrow water, making it perfect for those who would like to enjoy the calmness and the beauty of the place.

Whereas the other one cascades down to a sulfur deposit which makes the color of the water into a red-orange one, thus, making it ideally unusual for tourists to flock.

The unusual beauty of this falls is just perfect for those who would like to get a taste of what nature has to offer but on a different level, or color I must say. With its height of 30 feet and with the water coming from the Okoy river valley at the Mount Talinis, you will surely enjoy being at the bottom and watch the water flows gracefully and hit bottom and eventually turn into a red-orange color. Some would say that the sulfur deposit in the place makes it not ideal for bathing, yet experts and the local authorities suggest that it is still allowed and is still permitted.
