Marangig Falls - Mount Candalaga, Maragusan, Compostela Valley

Marangig Falls serves as an entry to climbing Mount Candalaga. It is a system of waterfalls consisting of 13 levels surrounded by trees and different shrubs.

According to legend, Marangig Falls is home to a ship known as Donya Marangig. Once in a while, residents would hear the blow of the horn and see that the river's waters have overflown. The shifting of the water, according to the locals, means that the ship is moving but the ship is invisible.

The province is one of the untapped natural gems of the country. Its thick, undisturbed forest serves as home to numerous endemic and endangered flora and fauna. These include the Rafflesia, the world’s biggest flower. Aside from this, Compostela Valley has several scenic spots waiting to be ‘discovered’ for the world to see.
