Wow - This is a must-see place after the whale shark watching/snorkeling/swimming. it is only a motorbike away - though the roads are winding and goes up up and up... They will take you to the entrance. There is an entrance fee of P20 per person. There are motorbikes available to take you to the actual falls - which is... More

The beauty and energy. Would be nice if you can view the falls from an elevated area. traveling there was easy but walking to and from the entrance is not.

From whaleshark watching, a motorbike brought us to a high place to see the falls, at first we thought it was directly to the falls but it is only a assembling point and we have to ride another motorbike for another fee to go down to the falls area proper.. we did not get the offer thus we walked and...

Once you get to the vehicle point, locals will start offering your a motorbike ride down the 500m path and keep telling you that it is a long walk. You really won't need a ride unless you're willing to pay. The waterfalls itself is simply majestic and breathtaking. Take time to appreciate the view first before stepping into the water.... More

We visited Tumalog Falls on a whim after spending the morning with the whale sharks. Our resort was just down the road from the turn off for the falls, and we got a local to motorbike us to the vehicle point (3 on one motorbike without helmets - certainly a hairaising adventure in itself!!). Once there, we opted to walk... More

This is huge fall. Very beautiful. However a lot of tourists there, should do to the fall in the morning to stay away the crowded. Beautiful sun light.

I swam in the water for around 5 minutes, after that t was really too cold (we had a windy day). It Is a fast checkmark to do if you are in oslob.

Like many others here, I agree it is good to go and visit these after the whalesharks. There were a lot of people there when we were there. We got a ride that someone from a local restaurant organised us. This was about 100 pesos and then we payed a small entry fee. 20 pesos I think. The walk down... More

Wow! This place is great!! It was part of a whale watching tour we were on, I was expecting something far from what it is! Fantastic waterfalls, so pretty! You can walk out under the falls and get a water 'massage'. Some members of my group thought it was too cold but really it wasn't at all, I loved it... More

I believe most whale shark watching tours bring people here after snorkelling/scuba. The visit is very short because there isn't much else to see except the waterfall. Nonetheless, it is very pretty. However, the water is very, very cold, so we didn't stay for long. The quick motorbike ride up and down was very scary and I wished there were... More
