Passed by this beautiful falls on our way to Enchanted River. It is composed of 3 layers but have to climb up to see the top 2. The falls was pretty and one could go rafting in the lowest level. There was not so much water when we visited so the falls did not look as majestic as in some... More

Travel time from Davao is 5 hours, accessible by car, van or suv. No need to hike on the way to falls. Bring insect repellent and sunscreen so you can explore and climb to the other tier levels. Perfect for aspiring photographers but no other activities to offer aside from swimming and having a picnic. Fresh seafood can be bought... More

I just visited Tinuy-an Falls, a name which loosely translated means a place that is off the beaten path. Local government has put in some good controls so the site is clean and organized. This falls is claimed to be the widest in Mindanao. It has several levels and the first upper level can be reached through an iron pathway... More

When in Surigao you should not miss this place. Its peaceful and not many people were there. Maybe because it was three in the afternoon when we got there. The gushing sound of the water makes you feel like you're in a Virgin forest.But the only downside is there were not so many trees anymore.

The Tinuy-an falls is a beautiful natural wonder. If you're looking for other activities other than the falls, then you're in the wrong place. Also, the road from highway to the falls is bumpy and long, makes you think twice about coming back.

Dislike the rough road, rubbish and annoying local collectors on almost everything. Waterfall is great - we had fun on top. Good for locals but it still has a long way to meet foreign standard

I liked the ability to climb the falls with a guide. In Australia such a thing would not be allowed because the lawyers would be suing for millions when someone had an accident. Philippines...don't follow example of Australia and America...keep up the fun and let people take responsibility for their own actions! Road wasn't as bad as everyone makes out.... More
