Located at the foot of Mt. Samat is Dunsulan Falls. After exiting to the main highway from Mt Samat, you will be seeing a huge sign pointing the direction of Dunsulan Falls after around 5 minutes and after turning left, it will be just a short 10 minute drive to the falls. There is a fork in the road where you need turn left. At the end of the road is the parking space for the falls.

After walking the pathway to the entrance, you will need to pay an entrance fee of P50 for adults and P20 for children. What welcomes you inside the is a large picnic grounds and the murky green water of the catch basin of the falls. It is quite noticeable though that there isn't that much water pouring as it is almost the summer season.
There is a sign which says that you cant swim near the drop of the falls as according to them, the hard rock bottom of the surface of the falls is shaped like a cone and there was a reported incident before that someone has drowned in it. Scary! >.<

|Seems like some sort of treetop adventures which was also closed and under construction while we were there.|
What I think that needs more improvement is that they need to raise awareness on the settlements that live above the waterfalls as they could be affecting the quality of water pouring down on to the catch basin if they want to bring in more tourists into this tiny paradise.
After a little bit of exploring and photo ops around the area, we decided to leave early and not take a dip anymore as the sun is almost setting and we have to reach our next destination further west which is the Pawikan Conservation Center in Morong, Bataan.
