It hadn't rained in 3 months in Bislig but the Tinuy-an Falls were still majestic to behold. The Niagra Falls of the Philippines, it is the biggest waterfall in the country. I tried the raft that takes you right under the main water falls : really fun! Our guide went above and beyond to take our pictures, swimming into the... More

The scenery was perfect, my cousins thought it was a man-made falls because of the layered stones. It looks like the Rice Terraces. Ps: It's more nice to go there at during BER Months so that the water's current would be very lovely! Really a God's Gift :)

From a far, the cascades might not look very high. Think again. So well worth the 2 hours habal-habal ride!

This was the conclusion of our attractions hopping in Surigao del Sur. We were informed that the falls wasn't at its grandest at that time because it's summer. Since it is a part of our itinerary, we pushed through. I would be awed if I had no idea what it would look like at its full blast, but the sight... More

This ain't the Philippines' version to Niagara for nothing. Tinuy'an Falls, 95 m wide and 55 metres (180 ft) high, is also known as the country's widest falls. The falls cascades in three tiers and rainbow appears between 9 AM to 11 AM (unless it rains, of course), perfect for your selfies. I have been here countless times and I... More

My friends and i just got there this June and apparently got a little disappointed because the falls didn't look as majestic just like in the pictures we saw in the internet. Then our tour guide informed us that the water runs low and little during summer time and the best time of the year to visit the falls is... More

What a great experience it was looking down in the middle of the falls on low tide, it was captivating and very inviting for a... jump? but of course get a grip for you'd surely not survive its shallow waters. For first time visitors read the landmark plaque after the entrance so you'll fell what i fell. Fear your Fears.
