From around 35-45 minutes habal-habal (skylab, single motorcycle) ride from Mangagoy Bislig City, passing through a quite bumpy road under the mostly cloudy sky comes the 95 meters high and 55 meters wide Tinuy-an falls - which is commonly refer to as Niagara of the Philippines. Composed of three main layers which are all magnificently veiled with plunging white water curtains. Indeed it was huge and only then I realized how huge it was.
The weather is quite cold, the water is tempting, yet I was worried I won't be able to catch our way to Hinatuan on time so I decided not to take a dip to avoid taking so much time
Aside from site seeing, swimming and dipping in cold water you could trek up to the highest layer of the falls which will reveal another two beautiful layer with a bird's eye view of the lower levels. Trekking to the last layer would only cost you a generous amount of donations for the guides who are indigents on that area.
- Habal-habal ride/head/way - 100.00

- Cottage fee - 100.00
- Donation for trekking - XXX.00
- Food and drinks - 130.00 (brought from Mangagoy)
