One of the most popular waterfalls in the country, Kawasan Falls is a multi-tier falls found at the foot of Mantalongan Mountain Range in Badian, Cebu. The waterfalls are picture-perfect with the lush greenery and natural pools where people can take a refreshing dip into the cool turquoise water.
Considering that the waterfalls are found amidst the forest, an uphill hike is necessary to reach the first waterfall which is also the largest and usually crowded among the three-layer falls. Aside from swimming, canyoneering is also a popular activity done in the area.
Bring swimwear and extra clothes. Even if you do not plan to swim, you might be tempted to do so as the water is inviting.
Wear appropriate footwear, the type that is best for hiking rocky terrain and can be soaked in water.
Bring essential items only. You wouldn’t enjoy carrying a heavy bag when hiking to the waterfalls or doing other activities.
Food and drinks are expensive in Kawasan so make sure to bring your own to save.
Use a waterproof camera or bring a waterproof bag to protect your gadgets and other valuables.
