The falls fascinated me, my two daughters and granddaughter. We went here just this summer 2017. The place was awesome and the people were friendly. The problems I encountered -- No comfort room and a good place where we could sit properly, the water was quite dirty and some people just threw their garbage on the sides, there was not... More

The Tumalog Waterfalls are a little tugged away, so you need to get a car (or scooter) and then still walk a little bit (10 minutes) until you reach the falls from the carpark. On a hot day its the perfect spot to cool down and chill or have a picnic near the falls. If you are going just before... More

need to walk down going to the falls...but nice place to enjoy. Just save your strength afterwards cause you have to walk again going to the parking area. You can ride a motorbike as well.

I was about to skip this attraction but since it was nearby, I decided to go ahead. The motorcycle driver told me that they did not charge entrance mainly because the water was not as strong as expected. Thus I set my expectation low. Little did I know that I would be mesmerised by Tumalog Falls. I have never seen... More

This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Philippines but due to El Nino 2016 the water flow intensity is limited so it doesn't have the beauty it had some years ago. Anyway it's a good attraction if you want to continue to visit Oslob surroundigs after whale shark encounter. It's 15 mins by car from Oslob until you... More

I borrowed a small motorbike and rode here from the whale shark area. only about 5 mins ride. Really lovely. Locals told me sometimes no water but when I visited it was truly beautiful. So close and free so worth checking out. Once you get there locals can double you on motorbikes the last 500m if you don't want to... More

Ask first from the locals if there is water. Don't rely on the habal-habal drivers because they will insist that there is so that they can take you there for a fee. Aside from that, you have to transfer to another habal habal for 50 fare to enter the area. There is nothing to see there!

Go to the whale sharks for 6 and then Tumalog falls after, no one will be there. Or go to Tumalog for 7 and have it for yourself. The walk down is fine and not that far but the walk back is hard. 50 pesos pp for a motorbike ride down. It is a very steep road.
