Waterfalls Chasing in Southern Cebu
Kawasan Falls, Badian
Inambakan Falls, Bugnawan Falls, Campael Falls in Ginatilan
Dao Falls and Aguinuid Falls in Samboan
Summer, April 2015
A week before this adventure, I was in Mindanao and did waterfalls chasing in Aliwagwag Falls (Cateel) and Tinuy-an Falls in Bislig, Surigao (with side trip in Enchanted River) in just one day! I thought I would never break that adventure but I was wrong!
How about seeing ten waterfalls in just one day in Cebu? That would be really extreme! =)
And I was able to do accomplish the feat! Yup, I did but almost got exhausted to the point that I do not want to travel anymore the following day.
Anyway, here's how I did it.

How to get there
After staying for 30 minutes, we decided to head back to the jump-off point. I noticed that beside the jump-off point, there is a white beach! Cebu is really blessed for having so many white beaches.
Originally, I was supposed to go also to Montaneza Falls Malabuyoc-Alegria. But I had to choose between Ginatilan-Samboan Falls and Malabuyoc-Alegria Falls. And I made the right choice!
How to get there
From Cebu City
Board a bus (preferably, Ceres) with the signboard Bato via Barili. Cebu City to Ginatilan is 135 kilometers. Alight at the town of Ginatilan and hire a habal-habal to the the falls.
From Badian to Ginatilan
Board a bus going to Bato. Fare is P50 (aircon bus). Travel time more or less an hour. It is 31 kilometers from Badian. Arriving at the town of Ginatilan, hire a habal-habal to the falls. Round trip fare to the falls is P200. From the town it is just 3.9 kilometers. The fee may be excessive but you can ask the driver to show you or guide you to the falls.

You have to climb the falls itself and trek time was 5 minutes.
Another 5 minutes and we reached level three.
The falls was not slippery since it is made of limestone.
Another 5 minutes and you have the next level.
Finally, another 5 minutes and the last level.
The hard part was descending. Personally, I do not like descending.
Mentally, I was pushing for another falls that day since I was 10 minutes away from it. But physically, I was already drained, fatigued and exhausted. I called it a day! I rested and recalled what happened that day.
The following day, I went to another falls (Day 3, another blog).
