We had not planned to go here, but luckily we did it. I did love this place a lot more than the Kawasan Falls. A different waterfall though. Less water, i felt like in enchanted forest, not so many tourists, birds flying on the waterfall wall, took some pic under the waterfall. Quite, silence. To get here either you walk... More

We took a bike to the falls but they only dropped us to the outside of the falls. You have to walk another 150m or so downhill to reach the fall but they also have people on bike waiting to take you down. Don't get cheated by the bikers as they will come and offer you a free ride when... More

Very near to the whale shark viewing. Easy enough to get to for 60 PHP for a drive on a motorbike (from the turnoff at the highway). Scenery on the way is spectacular! Well preserved, and free entry. Hundreds of streams of water cascading over rocks, moss and plants. Water is cold but definitely worth getting into. Don't leave this... More

This waterfall is gorgeous . It's not a ton of water falling but still enough to enjoy . Once you get to the entrance you can pay a motor bike you take you up and down the hill to get to the waterfall . You can walk but it's really steep.

We almost missed it, the narrow road leading to the falls. You have to leave the car, or scooter, at a parking place from which a steep road of maybe 200 mts goes downward to the falls. The ammount of water falling isn't big, but it sprays down, rather than falling, into a kind of lake / swimming pool. The... More

Close to Tan Awan Whale Shark dive spot. A motorcycle local guy took us to Tumalog falls from the Whale Shark dive Spot for 120 PHP per person. When we arrived we had to pay further 50 PHP per person so total 340 PHP for this trip. I guess it was a rip off - but the Tumalog falls were... More

Prepare for a big steep hill walk to this waterfalls or you can cheat and pay a moped to take you down to the falls! We walked for some exercise and to save 50 pesos! We may have visited this during dry season as there wasn't much of a waterfall but the views were still beautiful and the colour of... More

Its quite far from the main road but cemented road going to interior is good for all tourists who would prefer to walk than riding the habal habal.

Easily accessible from oslob town proper. This falls is one of the best as it was pretty safe to swim in for non expert swimmers like me (3 ft. deep) it was like raindrops gently falling and pleasurable to watch. Water was cool and area has plenty of shade from trees making it not so hot even on sunny days.... More

It is recommended that you visit the falls after the whale shark watching, since it is just approximately 5-7 minutes away via car or motorbike. From the main road, you go up the mountain and reach the parking area. From the parking area, one can choose to hike 15 minutes downwards to the falls or rent a motorbike (habal-habal) at... More
