Continuation of my Backpacking Biliran (62nd visited provinces in the Philippines)


Biliran is an island province in the Philippines located in the Eastern Visayas region. Biliran is one of the country's smallest and newest provinces. Formerly a sub-province of Leyte, it became an independent province in 1992.

There are plenty of breathtaking waterfalls in the country, but Ulan Ulan falls is one-of-a-kind. Ulan-Ulan comes from the visayan dialect which means “rain“. The force of the falling waters creates a mist hence the name. It's the kind of sight that should be experienced on its own, as pictures don't do justice to the fantastic scenery. Getting to Ulan Ulan Falls takes some time and effort, so it's recommended to get there early and to spend a day there to fully appreciate the waterfalls. The trek to the waterfalls will take half an hour and it's a steep trails without ropes to hold on.


From Naval town proper, hire a habal habal to take you to Barangay Sampao for 500 pesos back and forth. Travel time is half an hour. The habal habal driver will drop you at the start trail leading to the waterfalls so you just need to follow the signage. You can also hire a tour host for 200 pesos only.

If you're going to visit the place in a local way, the habal habal fare is 80.00 per head(one way) and you need to wait until its fully loaded with passengers.


- There's no cottage for you to stay. It is not advisable to stay overnight. Bring enough clothes and a small waterproof bag to keep your things dry.
-Rent a habal habal and negotiate with the driver for your convenience plus you get a free tour guide.
- There's no mobile signal at these places. Make sure to inform your loved ones first so that they'll fully aware where you at.
- Bring water and food. There's no patag place for you to pitch your tent here so it's advisable to day tour only.
-Bring a waterproof Camera and power banks just in case you'll run out of batteries for your camera.
-Pick up your trash and bring it with you.
- The place is very mysterious. Please make sure to leave the place before the sunset. Trust me on this!

A perfect side trip place to visit after Sambawan island.
