Last November 1, 2012, I shared a tragic incident that happened in Casaroro Falls HERE. That post was not intended to discourage people from visiting the mighty waterfalls in Valencia, Negros Oriental.

It may not look beautiful in the photos, but the waterfall was really enchanting. This is one of the most famous tourist destination in Negros Oriental province. The water gushes down 100 feet to the ground causing a deep swimming hole and flows to a narrow stream. This is actually what makes Casaroro Falls unique.
How to get there? Lemme take you with me.
All you have to do is to get to Dumaguete City. From the city, a public utility jeep or a pedicab (trike) can take you to the cool town of Valencia, Negros Oriental. Friendly locals will help you get a public motorcycle for you to reach Casaroro Falls entrance.

The road was fine, and the ride was really fun. Temperature started to drop as we went higher. Valencia is 500 meter above sea level, so better wear jackets and coats.

For my six years stay here in Valencia, I never dared to visit the waterfall. My aunt keeps telling me unpleasant stories about the place. But when visiting the place, those stories were becoming real. There were a lot of boulders everywhere. Wild ferns and lush of thick plants surrounded us.

This is all for now. This post was actually sitting on my draft for many weeks now. I just posted it today, because I wanted to complete all blog post about Valencia. And I'd like to thank Lara of Lara Lizard blog for the cute ring she sent to me.
