Discover Antique: Malumpati Cold Spring

Malumpati Health Spring and Tourist Resort is located in Sitio Malumpati, Brgy. Guia, Pandan, Antique. You can access this resort through Brgy. Sto. Rosario and Brgy. Candari.

The water comes from the Malumpati Cold Spring Headwater located about 35 minutes walk from the resort. A man-made pool was created from the river by constructing a concrete embankment so the water is kept at a certain level and allows it to overflow during heavy rains. It was a Sunday when we visited so the resort was full of people enjoying the long weekend with their families and friends.

To the delight of the onlookers, local teenagers climbed up a tree leaning over the pool and jumped, as if they’ve done it all their lives.

When I saw the same teenagers back-dived on the bridge used to cross to the other side, I asked them to pose and dive for me so I can record it in my camera. They couldn’t refuse when I told them I’m going to post their pictures and video in the Internet.

Local folks believed the Malumpati Cold Spring has healing properties. Healing or not, dipping in the cold water has a relaxing effect on the body. People who go there came as far as neighboring province of Iloilo and nearby Aklan.

The water from the Malumpati Cold Spring feeds the Bugang River, considered as the Cleanest In-land Body of Water in the Philippines. If you happen to visit Antique, don’t leave without visiting Malumpati Cold Spring. It’s a natural treasure that should be kept in its unspoiled state.

How to get there:

Pandan, Antique can be reached via Aklan and Iloilo. Ceres bus line has regular schedules to-and-fro Pandan. Buses from Metro Manila going San Jose, Antique via the Roll-On-Roll-Off (RORO) also pass by Pandan. From Pandan town proper, you can rent a tricycle going to Malumpati Health Spring and Tourist Resort.
