Travel Logs

After spending the morning at Mimbalot Falls eating tons of lanzones, Louie and I headed off to our next stop Tinago Falls. Getting there was easy as a breeze from Mimbalot falls as they are quite near each other. From Miguel Canohoy Memorial School we took a habal-habal going to Tinago, it was a 20-30 minute ride and the fare costed 40 php each. There is an entrance fee of 25 php per head and life jackets are mandatory (25 php per head).

From the registration area you have to trek for a bit to get to the falls. The local government constructed stairs to make the trek easier (486 steps if I remember correctly).

By the time we got to the bottom and reached the falls my legs were already burning but as soon as I saw Tinago falls, I complete forgot about the grueling trek.

Tinago Falls is easily one of my favorite waterfall to date. The color of the water was so mesmerizing it’s as if it is inviting you to just dive in which I did…from a 30 ft cliff. Highest cliff I’ve jumped so far. According to our guide, Sam Milby (the actor) jumped from the same spot I jumped from hahaha :). Be careful climbing the cliff though as it can get a little slippery. If you are not afraid of heights and want to experience what it’s like to fly for  a brief moment, I’d definitely recommend cliff jumping. Take note though that you are not allowed to wear your life jacket if your going to jump as it will hurt you when reach the water due to the height of the cliff. You may leave your life jacket in the water and use it as a target ;). You can also ride the bamboo raft for 15 php each and the boatman will take you underneath the waterfall. A fun way to experience Tinago.

Tinago Falls is easily one of the most breath taking waterfalls I’ve seen. To swim in its pool, jump from it’s cliff or just enjoy the it’s grandness from afar, to me, is something I’d recall over and over again so long as my memory permits it.
