OVERVIEW

Pagsanjan Falls is a three-tiered waterfall located in Cavinti, Laguna, hence the other name Cavinti Falls.  It is one of the most popular waterfalls in the Philippines and one of the major tourist attractions in the province of Laguna.  The waterfall can be reached by navigating the river using a dugout originating from the town of Pagsanjan.  The boat ride, now called Shooting the Rapids, has been practiced since the Spanish era.  The boat ride provides tourists the amazing views of the river lined with boulders and rocks where lush greenery thrives.  Upon reaching the main falls, you can ride a bamboo raft across the natural pool to get behind the falls.

While the ride to the falls seems like a leisurely ride, the return is a different story as you will go through 14 rapids of the Bumbungan River therefore making the entire experience all the more thrilling and memorable.
