The first glimpse of the waterfalls are impressively picturesque, but going into the compound doesn't make for much. Nothing to do except take a dip in murky water, so if that floats your boat then Tamaraw Waterfalls is great!

Very dissapointed. Water is no longer clear and very poor compared to tukuran falls. Food's cost is cheaper though. Dinning area is not maintained well.

From the highway, this towering falls is beautiful and camera-ready. The cool air from its water splash is very soothing and refreshing.

You can't get right under the falls for fear of something like a coconut falling on your head. But there is a man made pool that captures the water just below. It's worth the trip

The local government should look into this, littering is not controlled, access to the falls requires the payment of an entrance fee, food and beverages can be purchased but cleanliness is left at the discretions of the patrons. No garbage area, no dedicated employee to assist and make sure that the area remains clean. We collected our own garbage and... More

I think what you will enjoy most were the views that you pass along the road.... The road getting there was quite high so you have a good vantage point. But, the falls itself was just average... or maybe it was because I went there during the "dry" season.... the water was not that much and the pool looked quite... More

Those saying that the waterfall was boring most probably did not explore the area in its entirety. Entrance is only PhP 30 and you can get access to the man-made waterfall and pool (which are both a little mossy, skip those) as well as the waterfall at the lower level. You would have to go down steep stairs, but it's... More
