Oslob Tumalog Falls and Samboan Aguinid Falls

Cebu is blessed with stunning waterfalls from North to South.

Tumalog Falls

Tumalog Falls is located at barangay Luka, in Oslob, Cebu. It is also known as “Toslob” or Mag-ambak” falls by the locals.

From Aaron Beach resort it was a twenty minutes motorbike or habal-habal ride heading to the Bacalso National Highway before turning left to Tumalog Falls Road before we reached the registration area. We can either walk going to the falls or hire another motorbike going down. We opted to hire another habal-habal as they told us the road was steep going down. Going down the slope you can also see the top of the Tumalog Falls from the road. As we reached the rocky road, we were near the falls. We could see the small river where the water flows from the falls.

And we reached Tumalog Falls. It was still early and we were the only persons in the falls. Tumalog falls is taller and grander and there are lots of trickling water from different sides. The water that is flowing is also cold. There is a pool that everybody can swim in.

Aguinid Falls

Aguinid is located at Samboan, Cebu, two towns from Oslob.

From Aaron Beach Resort, it’s 25 to 30 minutes ride along the Natalio Bacalso National Highway and becoming Santander – Barile – Toledo Road. The resort offers a motorbike ride that you can hire.
There are 8 levels of Aguinid falls that is according to the locals. But only 5 of them are open to the public. The eight levels are a system of waterfalls that runs for a couple of kilometers along Tangbo River.

The best thing about Aguinid Falls is you need to trek through the cascading waters for you to reach the different level. There are two guides that will help you.
You will definitely get wet during the trek because of the flowing water from the top. Some of the treks get harder because of the raging waters. Make sure that you also have a dry bag or waterproof case for your phone.

Reaching level 5 is really worth it. You will see the majestic waterfalls where you can also swim or hide on the rocks and be mystified with the water falling.
