Cambugahay Falls is a must-see when you are in Siquijor. The powder blue water was really refreshing and one should try the Tarzan swing. The only downside is the looong stairs that you have to walk to reach the Falls. Going down was okay but the torture was going up and walking the hundred steps when you are wet.

Pretty hard to get to the falls as you have to go down about a hundred steep and difficult steps. But once you get to the bottom all sweaty and tired, it was an amazing feeling to just jump into the water. Not to be missed when in Siquijor.

The path going down was already an adventure on its own. The trek going up was like going on a pilgrimage or via crucis. Expect tons of perspiration, a few stops as you catch your breath and an utmost desire to reach the top without having wobbly legs. The highest drop was probably around 10feet. The catch basin was not... More

You may have to walk for hundreds steps in your way down and up but each step worth it. The reward is a stunning beauty of the nature, cool and nice water, amazing jump in the lake and many other things words cant describe.

If you are visiting Siquijor, this is a must visit site Just be aware that it is about 140 steps down to the falls and 140 steps back up. There is something like a P25 parking fee on the main road before you traverse the stairs. There is no fee otherwise. There are multiple levels to the falls. I could... More

Fun-filled activities to do are the "swing and jump" and of course the jump at the top of the falls. No need to trek to reach the beautiful falls, you'll just need to walk the paved 100+ steps. Best time to go there is after your cantabon cave spelunking for you to freshen up. :)

With just over 100 Steps to get down to the falls, make sure bring Water & can handle 100 steps, each way... The Falls are VERY nice, as you'd expect. And there is even a rope swing on the upper level! Lots of fun & a refreshing way to spend a few hours Parking is 10 peso

In order to see the beauty of the falls, you have to go 139 steps down. The pathway is properly cemented yet going down is quite a heavy task. There is no comfort rooms or cottages but purely untouched. The good thing is the beauty of the falls that can be seen in the pictures.
