- A kind of place that stands out from the rest in Tacurong, Baras bird sanctuary extends kindness to the least and neglected of creation - birds! Here they find a home, paradise where they are cared and appreciated, admired and protected. Thanks to the kind owner, Rey Malana!Written July 26, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very nice place to bring children. The animals are also very interactive and friendly. Plus the zoo keepers are accommodating.
During our visit, we witnessed a trainer training an Australian Eagle & it was very entertaining to watched.
Friendly tip though, go there during weekends since they have animal shows and the tigers and lions are "set free", you can get an up close and personal experience with them.
No worries about food and drinks since they have a canteen that offers affordable choices.Written September 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Located in the coastal Barangay Taguisa, municipality of Lebak, Sultan Kudarat, this mangroves forests provides a safe haven and a nursery for a variety of fish, birds, and shellfish. Barangay Taguisa in cooperation with DENR has adopted mangrove restoration and conservation programs to protect the area. Mangrove forests play a vital role in trapping sediments, thereby stabilizing coastlines and protecting coral reefs. With their roots in the water and leaves in the air, mangrove ecosystem supports a diversity of life.Written August 26, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- One best way to reach the lake is through Koronadal City, then to Lutayan.
The Lake is amazing and beautiful.

- Tinubak Falls consist of the following. A falls, a cave, and an underground river.
The cave itself is very wide inside. Most of the section was never explored yet. Expect to get wet since it has a river. If you explore deep. You have to cross the river multiple times. An enormous stalactite and stalagmite can be found anywhere. Lots of nature amazing features await. The best thing is since it is newly discovered, so signs of vandals and destruction were found. Natural features of a river cave can be greatly appreciated.
The cave entrance is small especially when the water level is high. I do suggest to visit the place during summer season.
The water jump out the falls joining another river about 20 meters in height.
How to get there: From Lebak proper you need to take a ride either by rent a 4x4 truck (offroad) or single motorcycle (locally known as habal-habal or skylab). Negotiate the price! Remember you are hiring them for the whole day so they will have to wait for you at the drop-off point. Depending on the season the travel time ranges from 1:30-3 hours. In a junction road from the provincial road to Sitio Tibong-tibong can be as long as another 1 hour. Once you see the Tibong-tibong Primary School, you know you are on the right track. Then another uphill and downhill walk about 2 hours to the site.
TIP: Contact the barangay officials prior to your visit ask for a guide that means a Tanod that is a translator a guide and a security personnel. Don't overreact. It's a safe place. 1 tanod is good enough. Don't forget the service fee. Includes hiking along horse trail. Bring potable water. If you like to have more time, I suggest sleeping at Keytodac Barangay Hall then go to the cave morning after. Charge all your device since it's the only place that has electricity.
At the start of the hiking trail. there is a local with a small store. You can request to buy a chicken and rice. Humbly request them to cook a Native Chicken Arrozcaldo, perfect for your tummy when you return from the cave before the ride of the motorcycle. Cost can low as 300 and as high as 500 all in Ph Peso.
No Cellphone Signal. No Electricity.
Locals belong to Manobo Tribe. Non-violent and can be trusted. Dialect can be a mixture of Cebuano, Ilonggo and a little of Tagalog. You can ask the locals to be a sherpa.
To set proper expectations. This is a nature park. No facilities and no management are in place as of this writing.Written August 22, 2017
