Dunsulan Falls

Dunsulan Falls Great Place For Picnics

Dunsulan Falls is located in the foothills of Mt. Samat in Pilar, Bataan. The waterfall belongs to a tourist spot named Dunsulan Park – which is a place where you can enjoy nature with your families and friends.

There are couple activities to participate when you visit Dunsulan falls such as horseback riding and tree hopping adventure. The place isn’t the best swimming spot because of the floating leaves and branches.

However, you can become one with nature when you visit the waterfall. While not one of the most spectacular places to visit in northern Luzon, it has its own unique characteristics.

Epic Rock Formations At Dunsulan Falls

The rock formations surrounding the waterfall adds to its beauty. The peak season to visit the falls is around summer (February to April). In fact, the park is usually open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM on a daily basis.

This is a good side trip for anyone who is planning to visit Mt. Samat National Shrine or Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar.

The best part about it is that you don’t really need to hike to get to the falls. As a matter of fact, the waterfalls are only about a 5-minute walk from the car park!

The path/track to the falls is more or less paved the whole way so it’s very easy for walking. The registration area is easy to find and they sell some snacks and drinks here also.

The park itself is well preserved so make sure you take your rubbish away with you as there isn’t many bins to dispose of your rubbish.

You can visit the waterfall by land through the access road from Linao National Road or by riding the zip line from “Dambana ng Kagitingan” (which wasn’t operating when I was there).

Aside from the zip line, there isn’t too much to do here other than relax and chill out. The surrounds are very peaceful which is rare to find in this country.

Costs: Entrance fee to Dunsulan Park is P50. Table hire P80 per table (good for 8-10 people).

 

Dezza´s Tip

If you visit the Mt. Samat National Shrine, you should not miss the opportunity to visit Dunsulan falls. It’s only about a 15-minute drive away and allows you to make a nice relaxing day trip from Manila.
