the falls I visited (Tumalog Water Falls in Oslob Cebu, Katibawasan
Falls in Camiguin Island, Bugtong Bato Falls in Tibiao Antique,
Cambugahay Falls in Siquijor, Kawasan Falls in Badian Cebu, Samboan Hidden Falls in Cebu and Gunhuban Falls at Buli, Bato, Leyte). I considered Tinuy-an Falls is one of the most
majestic or amazing waterfalls in the Philippines. The scenic view of
the falls can relieve all of your stress and problems for a while.
Hehehe. Tinuy-an Falls is also considered as the top wonders in Surigao
del Sur. One of the widest in the country and they called it as "The
Niagara Falls of the Philippines"
Falls is located in Barangay Borboanan, Bislig City, Surigao del Sur in
the Southern Philippines Island of Mindanao. Standing at 55 meters (180
feet) tall and 95 meters wide, a white water curtain that flows in
three levels. The trip going to Tinuy-an Falls was quite long enough, tortuous
and rugged but when I arrived I got speechless. So much fun and earth
shaking happiness. A great experience indeed, so don't miss the chance
to drop by and explore the beauty of Tinuy-an Falls.
How to get there
quite difficult to get there. There is no regular public transportation
going to the place. You should hire a habal-habal (motorbike) to reach
City can be reached by taking any of the daily scheduled airlines (Cebu
Pacific, Airphil Express and other airlines) from Manila or Cebu via
Davao City, Butuan City or Surigao City. You can take regular trips of
aircon and non-aircon buses (Bislig route). Upon reaching the Mangagoy
Integrated Terminal in Bislig, there are numerous habal-habals or
motorbikes that go to Barangay Borboanan where the waterfall is located.
Enjoy your trip and be safe!
