It was definitely worth the long, winding, and bumpy trip! 1. Mesmerizing view of wide curtain of non-stop water. 2. Entrance fee is very affordable, including the balsa ride. 3. The trail going up the second level of the falls is not easy but the hand rail provided was very helpful. 4. Better to wear aqua shoes than rubber slippers.... More

A must-see in Surigao del Sur. Ride the balsa (P150 for 20mins) and hike up to see the rest of the falls. You can hire a guide, just give a tip. It's open as early as 6am. Entrance fee P50, vest for rent P30

You can easily include the falls in a day trip with te enchanted river from Butuan. The falls themselves are really nice and beautiful. Swimming in the rock pools and climbing to the top is good fun, too.

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
