Kawasan Falls 1/8 by Tripoto

Kawasan Falls

Rohan Sood
One of the world’s most widely photographed waterfalls according to Travel + Leisure, Kawasan Falls are located about 80km from Oslob. I rented a bike for this two-hour journey along the coast. The views throughout the drive were breathtaking and I stopped several times to admire the Filipino shoreline. I was lucky to have amazing weather throughout the day.The 20-minute hike to Kawasan Falls starts at Matutinao Church located on the highway. I parked the bike here for PHP 50/ USD 1. The trail passes through a tiny village along the Kawasan river. You will see abandoned bridges, wooden huts and several women doing their laundry in the river. Along the hike, you will also see the entrance to the falls, where tickets can be purchased for PHP 40/USD 0.80.Kawasan Falls are a treat to your senses. Fresh turquoise colored water and lush greenery make for outstanding scenery. Taking a dip here is an absolute must. If canyoneering interests you, there are several tour guides around for you to approach. The price is between PHP 1000-2000/USD 20-40.

We got ready for the main highlights of the cebu trip ie canyoneering at badian . We were exited and bit scared as this comes under one of the extreme adventure activity. ( We had seen videos in youtube in advance in preparation for this ) It was group tour so our group had around 20 ppl . Guide had arranged for pickup from hotel . We traveled using jeepney which is a popular mode of public transport in Philippines. The starting point of trek was around one hour journey from the hotel . Before reaching the starting point of trek they will stop to buy helmet ,life jacket and water proof casing for mobile if needed. You can also buy shoes for rent(100 pesos) if needed.

This waterfalls is one of the popular tour destinations for both local and foreign guests of the province because of its one of a kind characteristics that will make your stay exciting and excellent. Anyway, going to Badian you will pass the City of Carcar, Municipality of Barili and Dumanjug it is a long ride by the way. I assure that there will be no boring and dull moments because of the beautiful mountain-scape and coastal views along the way. You need to hike for at least 1.5KM of the semi concreted road to reach the waterfalls - a nature hike indeed! The waterfall is bluish and icy cold yet refreshing. However, there are a lot of people offering their services as a guide make sure to negotiate properly because some of them offer above standard rates. On your way up, the place is surrounded by luscious green trees and bushes that will serve as your shade. So less worry for your flawless skin!
