Lots of activities including trekking, swimming, having a picnic, or simply just relaxing can be done at the place, plus El Kabayo is an easily accessible spot, so no need to worry about getting lost when visiting it.

An Attraction Where You Can Be One with Mother Nature

A natural attraction seated in the heart of Subic, El Kabayo Waterfalls is home to two waterfalls with different heights. The first waterfall is about 3 meters high and the second one is 5 meters high. The two falls are almost thirty meters away from each other, which means one must go trekking to see both waterfalls. While hiking, you can enjoy sightseeing and even a lovely picnic, as the place has a very relaxing ambiance. There’s nothing like munching on your favorite food while being surrounded by the flora and fauna of the forest. You can choose to bring raw food and have the caretakers cook it for you or bring meals that are already cooked so you can just start eating when you reach the falls.



Walking along El Kabayo’s trails also means that you can get a chance to learn about jungle survival and making medicine from herbs. This is part of the MAD Travel and Trek program that aims to educate the trekkers about the importance of the country’s natural resources and to promote the preservation of the home of Subic’s indigenous tribe.
