El Nino affected the intensity of water flow!

This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Philippines but due to El Nino 2016 the water flow intensity is limited so it doesn't have the beauty it had some years ago. Anyway... read more

This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Philippines but due to El Nino 2016 the water flow intensity is limited so it doesn't have the beauty it had some years ago. Anyway it's a good attraction if you want to continue to visit Oslob surroundigs after whale shark encounter. It's 15 mins by car from Oslob until you... More

I borrowed a small motorbike and rode here from the whale shark area. only about 5 mins ride. Really lovely. Locals told me sometimes no water but when I visited it was truly beautiful. So close and free so worth checking out. Once you get there locals can double you on motorbikes the last 500m if you don't want to... More

Ask first from the locals if there is water. Don't rely on the habal-habal drivers because they will insist that there is so that they can take you there for a fee. Aside from that, you have to transfer to another habal habal for 50 fare to enter the area. There is nothing to see there!

The tumalog falls were both interesting and pretty, short walk from the entrance and well worth the experience!

Go to the whale sharks for 6 and then Tumalog falls after, no one will be there. Or go to Tumalog for 7 and have it for yourself. The walk down is fine and not that far but the walk back is hard. 50 pesos pp for a motorbike ride down. It is a very steep road.

Great place. It has a mystic/fairytale feel. There is not a lot of water coming down but this place breathes tranquility. Liked it much more than Kawasan. Recommended!

Our car dropped us to a point from where you are suppose to just walk the slope down untill you reach the beautiful tumalog falls. The falls are beautiful and they end at a pool kind of area where you can take a dip (water is cold but awesome) and go close to the water drop point. It was really... More

Tumalog Falls was the most amazing waterfalls I have ever seen. Such a peaceful place. Not crowded in the morning. A 10 minute steep walk (paved road) from parking to the falls. You can also have someone to drive you back and forth. It's worth stopping if you're inOslob.

Thank Karine B
