This has been by far the falls with the highest drop I've seen. It is just a single drop of water stream, but very very tall. What is good about this is that it's very accessible (bad for those who love going on a trail) and the road to the falls is paved and cemented. I believe the entrance was... More

What's so relieving about the Katibawasan Falls is that unlike the Sto Nino Cold Spring and Bura Soda, the water level is not so deep. I can still stand on my feet and so it's kind of friendly to those who don't know how to float. According to the DOT travel map, Katibawasan Falls is the highest waterfall on the... More

The falls is quite far. You would expect to shell out some money for multicab to go there. The locals are very helpful when you ask for directions. We went to the falls after our trip to White Island so as to cool off and wash the saltwater out of us. Before even reaching the falls, we can already sense... More

Visited the place way back June 2012. This is part of the day tour we had while at Camiguin. Quite a refreshing surprise to end a tiring day going around. Take a dip into the cold water and enjoy. There are restrooms for changing clothes and affordable food and souvenir shops just outside the gate.

Katibawasan Falls is a sight to behold. My friend told me that this waterfalls has cold water but the temperature here is almost freezing water if you had a tiring day soaked in the heat of the sun this is a great place to relax since the water is definitely cold. There are also souvenir shops around the area. A... More

Only been there once for about 5 mins, which we regret. The waterfall is softer and much more gentle than Tuasan, and seems like a great place to relax and reflect.

If you appreciate nature no matter what, then you'd enjoy watching this waterfall and taking a dip or swim in the waterfall pool. There has been A LOT of changes in the area compared to the last time I was here with my family (more than 8 years ago). They really developed it. And it's for the better too (and... More

It was the tallest waterfall I have ever seen (yes,I should go out more,thank you!) And we took a dip into that very cold water which gave me quite a shiver. There were plenty of local tourists there and a few foreigners.

I like the falls, I can't help myself being enchanted of the beauty, a wonderfully created by the Almighty God. But i was disappointed with the trash in the dressing room, the place is not well maintained I just hope that cleanliness will be given preferential attention.

4.6km off the main road, these falls are not going to rival many of the falls elsewhere in Philippines, let alone the likes of Thailand or Iceland, but it is a good place for a refreshing dip if your body can stand it... A little on the cold side! It's a single stream falling quite high (need a 28mm lens,... More
