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

Our experience with Katibawasan Falls was anything but ordinary. The view of the falls was really breath-taking! People can swim in the lagoon, and the water is so cold! :) there are benches and tables available for picnics. Be sure to bring extra clothes and wear your slippers as you cannot resist taking a dip. :-)

A little underwhelming. The drop of the falls is quite high, but the amount of water coming over is not great, a single stream, not very wide. The water is very cold, although there were many people swimming. There are quite a few stairs to get to down to the water level, so access for mobility impaired people will be... More

You can hear the sound of the water as u draw nearer. Actually it's just 2 min walk from the main road. Entrance fee is 30 Pesos. The view is picture perfect and the water is super cold. I could bring a hammock and rest here for an afternoon. There were 2 groups on a picnic when we were there...the... More

Katibawasan Falls was one of the highlights of our trip. The waterfalls are very accessible from Camiguin, the road is paved and the trip was short. It's the tallest waterfalls that I've ever seen, and stunningly beautiful, dropping 76 meters into a small pool. The water was cold but enjoyable for a quick swim! There are many shops outside for...

This falls is awesome. By far one of the highest falls that I have seen in the country. Water is pretty cold and it is so strong that one might get injured just staying underneath it. We went there on a cloudy day so the place was covered in a bit of fog.

Its very nice to see the falls but not for me since it is terribly cold to go for a swim. Nice to go about noon when the sun is warm.

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
