If you’re staying in Cebu, there’s a high chance you’ve heard of one or two waterfalls by now. We’d be more surprised if you haven’t, because amazingly, there are more than 100 waterfalls in Cebu province!
And every year it seems like dozens more are surfacing and getting discovered. Let’s add another to the growing list, shall we?
Enter Sinungkulan Falls of Pinamungajan! You might know of its neighbors like the tucked-away Udlom Falls and the semi-concealed Busagak Falls, but Sinungkulan Falls deserves its very own highlight.
In the sleepy mountain barangay of Lamac is the peaceful waterfall. Its setting is serene and invites quiet introspection, which are characteristics unique to smaller waterfalls.
Nothing is quite as relaxing as lounging by a natural wonder while soaking in the cool forest air and listening to birdsong. Sinungkulan falls also happens to be an ideal spot for birdwatchers looking to observe some of the indigenous bird species of Cebu.
Located just under 2 hours from Cebu City, Sinungkulan is a gift to those seeking a quick break and some peace of mind. The crashing – but not quite roaring – water makes a soothing white noise that will capture you into a relaxing trance.
If you’re looking for an extended vacation, the Sinungkulan falls is also close to Kamangon Cave and the Hidden Valley Wave Pool and Mountain Resort, other wonders definitely worth visiting in Pinamungajan.
