Ultimate Index Guide to the Waterfalls of Abra

Waterfalls of Abra

Many of Abra’s most loved waterfalls are easily accessible and can be reached by short easy hikes of up to an hour. Others, like Kaparkan Falls in Tineg and Manambor Falls in Upper Tineg require a bit more stamina and navigation to reach, while some are just seemingly out of reach, plain secretive and a bit of a challenge to experience.

Here’s an indexed list of the Waterfalls of Abra that i have come across whilst researching for this article. The list is being added to all the time. If you know of any I have missed and there is a blog post about them please send me the link so that it may be added to this exciting resource. I have been to many of the Falls mentioned but still need to catch up with the backlog of blog posts.

Best Time to See Waterfalls in Abra

The best time to chase waterfalls in Abra is from June to October during the rainy season. There are some waterfalls of Abra that flow all year round but the most popular and accessible ones are seasonal.

What to bring to a Waterfall

As with any trip involving water you need to take care of your valuables, such as camera, mobile and cash. A dry bag is a must. I have tested and used extensively the dry bags produced by Hull & Stern and can highly recommend them.
You will also need a reusable water bottle and a good Day Backpack (16 or 25L is best) with side pockets for the waterbottle.

A good waterproof poncho and trousers is also handy to keep in your daypack incase it rains whilst hiking to or from the falls.

Food – bring some trail food but leave the plastic wrappers at home so as to keep the environment clean and plastic trash free.

See the Waterfall Packing List below for full list of items you may need.
