Cancalanog Falls or Cangcalanog River to be accurate is part of the river system in Alegria, Cebu that stretches all the way and connects to the river system of Kawasan Falls. It's a small-scale river with distinctive man-made and natural mini-falls along with a circular basin. This is a sweet little spot in Alegria, Cebu!

Cancalanog Falls is also known by locals as Cangcalanog Falls or Cangkalanog Falls. In fact, maps and GPS services show Cangkalanog Falls when searching this spot and the information center in the location indicates Cangcalanog Falls. These names may vary slightly from one another but be aware that it refers to the same spot.

Nature at It's Best

Located in the mountainous part of Alegria, Cangcalanog Falls showcases the best of nature. Fresh and clean air, trees covering the mountains, and cold running water to sustain life. A nice place to escape the hassle of living in the city and unwind!

When we arrived in the area, only two foreign visitors were enjoying swimming in the cold water and a few minutes later they left. Then, we had the whole place for ourselves to enjoy. It's just great!
