Caibiran, Biliran is one of the destinations in the Philippines which literally defines what a tropical paradise is. Large acres of land are devoted to rice fields, grains and other root crops with surrounding volcanic mountains complemented by a rich flora and fauna of varied ecosystems with hidden falls and hot springs.
While travelling the roads of Caibiran, we were lead to cross a river and witnessed locals play in the cold waters. It was a sight to behold for me. It was an epic rural scene like the paintings of Fernando Amorsolo coming into life. Read More: http://www.lakwatserongtsinelas.com/2014/04/caibiran-biliran.html
Located in Barangay Casiawan in the municipality of Cabucgayan, it can easily be accessed via a steep trail from the village road.
The 40-meter waterfalls is hidden among towering mahogany trees. It is the highest in the province, dropping over steep rocks then to a cascade flowing on a large pool. This is an ideal place to have a good swim. Read More: http://www.pinoyadventurista.com/2011/10/chasing-waterfalls-in-biliran.html?m=1
Iyusan Rice Terraces
Located in Barangay Iyusan, Almeria, the Iyusan Rice Terraces are nestled on a mountainous terrain where each terrace threads on its natural slope. While definitely not in the scale of the more famed Ifugao model, the development of the land shows how creativity can express harmony between humankind and the environment.
The rice terraces, likewise, showcases the industrious nature of the local farmers and the wise use of Biliran’s land resources which are predominantly rugged and mountainous. This has made the province self-sufficient in rice with Biliran having recorded the highest yield per hectare in palay production among the six provinces in the Eastern Visayas region.

Ulan Ulan Falls
The water is pristine. The place is not yet “touristed”. While the irony of it all is we promote tourism in this area, we also would like to control the potential harm the undisciplined tourists would do in such a place as this. I hope this blog will remind us to respect the wisdom of nature, so to speak. “Leave nothing but footprints.”
There, I can interact with the waterfalls. All rocks. Shallow all parts. You can climb the rock wall, get a water massage, but never ever jump off if you care for your limbs. It’s whole lot different when you are in the waterfalls than watch the water falls. Euphoric, I must say.
When you spend more time with nature, you spend more time with God. Don’t rush, there’s no rush hour in waterfalls. Relax. Savour. Feel. Read More: http://borispascubillo.weebly.com/photo-blog/ulan-ulan-waterfalls
