Utod Falls is a two-storey high waterfall in a secluded village in Magallanes, Cavite. Getting there entails trekking for 30 minutes through a forested area in Barangay Tua. The waterfall itself faces a wide and deep catch basin, prone to flash flood during typhoons. From the riverbank, visitors can also get to the top of the waterfall by following the steep trail at the left side. Taking only 10 minutes to hike, that trail leads to a stream surrounded with boulders. Up here, you can also visit its three hanging bridges.

Muscovado Making
3.58 km away

Muscovado is a healthy type of sugar, without the chemicals and processing of white and brown sugar. Cheap, local, and wholesome, muscovado makes for an excellent white sugar replacement, especially for people with diabetes. Interestingly, muscovado does not attract ants, unlike other processed sugars. Amidst sugarcane fields in Barangay Urdaneta in Magallanes, travelers can witness how muscovado is made the traditional way. At around 5:30 am, a water buffalo rotates a wooden trapiche, an old contraption that squeezes the juice out of sugarcanes. The juice is then boiled for five hours in a large cauldron until the juice is reduced to brown powder: muscovado. In a separate modern plant in Barangay Medina, travelers can watch how muscovado is made with the aid of machines. Muscovado de Magallanes Plant churns out 480 kilos of muscovado sugar a day.

Bitin River
3.92 km away

Bitin River gets its name from the Tagalog word "bitin", which means "hanging in mid-air". During the 30-minute trek to the river, visitors would have to hang onto tree roots, branches, and rocks. The forested trail is steep and slippery in some parts, and includes a rope-assisted descent. A popular destination among locals during summer, the river cascades into a series of small pools perfect for taking a dip.  A bamboo platform constructed near the riverbank serves as a picnic spot.

Malibiclibic Falls
3.92 km away

The most popular destination in Bailen, Malibiclibic Falls is distinctive for its rock formations. The waterfall itself is only about two meters high, but rock formations surrounding it stand at around 10 meters. Coming from the rivers of Alfonso, Bailen's neighboring town, the water drops to a large pool about 20 meters deep before flowing to Malibiclibic River. Tourists may swim in the pool but are strongly advised to stay in the shallow portions. There's a strong undertow as the water gets deeper. The river, about a meter deep in some parts, also has a powerful current. Getting to Malibiclibic Falls entails 30 minutes of trekking and clambering on moss-covered boulders. The nearby Putikan River, a 20-minute trek from Malibiclibic, has much calmer waters and is great for boating and kayaking (bring your own gear). It also supports an abundant population of freshwater fish like carp and tilapia.
