Malungoy-lungoy Falls

Category: Natural Attraction


  • “Malungoy-lungoy” is a Bicol archaic word that refers to a weak movement of a person’s neck. When a person slowly and weakly moves his/her neck in a semi-circular motion, it is referred to as “malungoy-lungoy.” This is probably the image drawn to describe the movement of the water in the roughly 9 meters high Malungoy-lungoy Falls. Waters that flow from crevices of Bulusan Volcano, Talistison and Mapaso River would flow into this falls. Today, the current administration of Mayor Alfredo Cielo, Jr. is developing this falls as an eco-tourism site in conjunction with the development being made in Irosin Lake. The falls is about 7.19 kilometers from the poblacion and can be reached by trekking from Irosin Lake along a 3.19 kilometers pathway.
