I have seen more beautiful falls than this one, the waters were too cold for you to swim for a long time. The area was more man made, it would have been better if they let nature take its course and developed it that way.

We went there the day before we left Camiguin after our visit in Mantigue Island. We thought it was just nearby the highway because the signage says it was only 4km. but seeing the mountain where it is located kinda give us the idea that it was a little bit far. on our way there needs more effort to grip...

If you're in Camiguin,this is a must see place. Nice to go swimming or just to see the place. The water is cold but still very clean.

The whole group of excursionists were really awed by the natural scenery. The waterfalls drop down in a slimmer cascades but coming from the higher top. The mist that kissed the body made one decide to go for a dip under it. Camiguin is lucky to have this beautiful scenery.

You shouldn't miss katibawasan falls when you are in Camiguin. It is one of the famous waterfall in the island. You can bring foods and tables are available for rent inside. There are also stores selling foods outside the area if you are lazy to bring cooked foods. :) Enjoy the freezy cold waterfall!

We went there early morning so there weren't so many other tourists. The falls is beautiful, the water cold and clean. The toilet needs renovation, though.

A beautiful place hidden on the higher mountains of Camiguin Island! If you wish to go for a swim it is okay. But for those who just wish to see the falls, it will not disappoint you. It is very high and the water force is very strong.

It was an ordinary falls but I think families would like to have a picnic here. The pool under the fall was not that deep so children will be safe. The water was cold and invigorating. The fall itself was beautiful. We saw plenty of monkeys. The bathroom though needs a lot of work.

I visited Katiibasawan with a group of 10 or so of my wifes family on a trip to Camiguin. The falls are quite high compared to others in Mindanao, but you can still swim in the small waterhole below. The water was freezing cold, like most falls in Mindanao, but was still ok for a swim. I would recommend a... More
