  2. I have visited the place with my family, before the entrance was just P20. It is like a jungle with the vines hanging the cliff of the mountain connecting the Kawasan Falls. Although the trip to go there is tiresome, as we to walk at least 2 kilometers to reach there. We have seen some creeks with lots of water, then we go down to see another creek, then at last we have reach Kawasan Falls, but it was already dark, so we have to rent a cottage in the place to have super and eventually go to sleep, because we can not enjoy the place as what we hear from people, who have experienced its beauty, as we are already tired from the trip. In the morning, at last I have discovered what a beautiful place is Kawasan Falls. The place is very virgin, even if there are some foreigners that came before us. The waterfalls and waters in its place are very cold and refreshingly worth the tiresome adventure we experienced in going there. I would like to go there again and again.

  3. Kawasan falls were gorgeous, great experience to swim under, they make you hire a lifevest if you want to swim under the falls. Was a bit hard to find the entrance , lot’s of vague & misleading signs along the main road. When you do find the entrance off the main road there is the usual crowd of scammers charging to park your scooter, best just to pay one, the experience of swimming under the falls is worth it.

    • Wow 😍, I visited 4 of them and it’s really beautiful.
      My next goal is Dao falls and cancanalog falls 😁😁
      There’s also another waterfall in somewhere in Alegria, they call it secret falls. I’m not sure if this is the one here camfael falls they are look the same.

  4. except for Tinubdan falls. I have covered all of these stunning waterfalls in my round in South Cebu. Great place for relaxation and adventure!
