samar-waterfalls-001.jpgSamar is very untouristed and has endless waterfalls and forests and is full of natural beauty. It has not yet been spoiled by resorts cluttering up the landscape.

samar-waterfalls-014.jpgIt’s almost therapeutic when that water comes pounding down on your back.

  1. Great pics DP, we missed these falls, where exactly are they please. Also do you know the name of the boat RORO from Cebu to Catbalogan as I plan to come down this month to do a little caving with Joni.

    Would like to include the falls if not to far away.

    Hope i shall be up to it as planning for the Mount Canlaon climb next Thursday which will take a few days. Want to continue down solo to Mumbucal but recent info indicates a NPA presence which is supposedly unfriendly to long noses, must check this out.

  2. After seeing the picture of Tarangban Falls, i’m considering Samar to be included in my list of “must see” in the Visayas. Samar didn’t ring a bell on my ears but the pic of the falls did not just ring but the whole belfry shook heavily.


  3. Hello rhum sellers,

    I really have had some great experiences on Samar island. There are a lot of remote sites that are really worth exploring !

    I used to live in Catbalogan Samar and became friends with a local – Joni Bonifacio of Trexplore (an adventure company). He is a caver and I enjoyed several cave expeditions with him.

    Just google caving in Samar and you will get his contact information. We traveled to Capul Island, Biri Island, Dalupiri and many remote sites in the interior including the Ulot River (Monkey River) He is Based in Catbalogan at the Abesamis Store – easy to find.

    I also became fond of stopping in the fish market at the pier every morning to get some fish for breakfast early in the morning. What a blast !
