San Carlos reopens Magon-on falls to tourists


The San Carlos City Tourism Office officially reopened to the public the Magon-on Falls in Sitio. Cabagtasan Brgy. Codcod, located some 40 kilometers away from the city proper.

The tourist destination which is about 1.2 kilometers hike from a tertiary road going to Sitio Natuyay was officially re-opened after the city government has infused P 1,000,000 funding for the opening and development of a foot road to provide easy access to visitors.

Tourism Operations Officer and City Tourism Office- OIC Jennifer Saballa-Paran said Magon-on Falls is suitable for trekkers and backpackers, including people who love to commune with nature.

According to the local government, minimal fees will be collected from every tourist who will be visiting the falls. Based on its ordinance, a P50 entrance fee will be collected from non- residents and P25 for locals. Meanwhile, it will charge a fixed cost of P250 for a group of six.

Visitors are also required to be assisted by trained tour guides from the City Disaster Risk and Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) for their safety and the City Environment Management Office (CEMO) for environmental protection.

Paran however urged travelers to be responsible enough by avoiding damages to the flora and fauna as well as helping maintain cleanliness in the area.
