Hot Mambukal Resort...

Mambukal Resort is a famous hot spring resort in Negros Occidental. It is close to Mount Kanlaon, a beautiful sleeping volcano that must be providing hot springs to the surrounding area.

Mambukal (in Barangay Minoyan, Murcia) is about 1,200 feet above sea level and it is the gateway to Mount Kanlaon. Mambukal Resort was originally established as a bathhouse and garden for relaxation.

Later on, it has turned into a fully developed resort with facilities catering to the needs of visitors looking for relaxation, adventure, or just a quite place of solace away from the hassles of daily routine.

This resort is conveniently nestled in a 23-hectare land area lavished with natural beauty, peaceful, and clean environment and refreshing air.

The ingredients of such natural beauty include the seven waterfalls that feed the water holes and the lagoon, which is being utilized as a small size but suitable boating pond.

The majestic waterfalls (almost like cascades) come down from the slopes of Kanlaon that is lush with tropical forest, bedecked with ferns, orchids, and other tropical flowering exotic plants.
