  • Ulan-Ulan means rain in the local dialect
  • 25m-high falls, surrounded by thick tropical forest, are some of the most spectacular in Biliran

Ulan Ulan Falls. The famed waterfalls of Sampao are very picturesque. Ulan-ulan Falls is one of them and located in the hinterland. You cannot come to Almeria without planning to visit these amazing falls. The walk to Ulan-Ulan takes you along a river, a mountain and  several waterfalls in quick succession. It would take a minimum 30-minute walk to reach the place.


Ulan-Ulan comes from the visayan dialect which means “rain“. The force of the falling waters creates a mist hence the name. It’s cascading waters form a catch basin with water sufficient for swimming.   With its greenery and cool gushing waters, visitors will surely enjoy taking a bath. There are no cottages along the sides of the stream and it is not a place to stay for overnight.

The pathways are steeped and no railing have been installed in places, so you need to be sure footed.
