The Underrated Beauty of Tumalog Falls in Oslob, Cebu

3/22/2015

I will just go right out and say that pictures do not give justice on how mind-blowingly beautiful Tumalog Falls in Oslob is. I admit, I underrated Tumalog Falls. I've seen pictures of it online and honestly, it wasn't that appealing. It's very ordinary. But when I finally set foot on the falls, my initial perception shifted 180 degrees and I just couldn't believe my eyes. I was completely blown away.

We went to Tumalog Falls right after checking in at Seafari Resort, our accommodation in Oslob. The staff helped us find a habal habal ride to take us to Tumalog falls jump off point. We paid P20 for the entrance fee and started our stroll to the falls. The trail going to the falls was steep but we managed to pass through it. We were also rewarded with a scenic view and lush greenery along the way.

The beautiful Tumalog Falls showed itself after about fifteen minutes of walk. We were greeted by its relaxing sound and mist. Tumalog Falls looked like paradise to me. It has this shallow basin, so shallow that anyone can take a dip. And a dip to its cold water was nothing short of relaxing.


How to get to Tumalog Falls


A visit to Tumalog Waterfalls is usually done alongside whale shark watching in Oslob. After swimming with the gentle giants, you can directly go to the falls as it isn't far from the whale watching area.

If you're coming from Cebu City, take a bus from South Bus Terminal going to Oslob. Tell the bus conductor to drop you off the road leading up to Tumalog Falls.

There are motorcycles (habal habal) ready to take you up the jump off point which costs around P100. At the jump off point, you can ride another habal habal to take you down the falls, which costs P50 back and forth, but I suggest that you just walk.

For a minimal fee of P20, a trip to Tumalog Falls is well worth it. Tumalog Falls is doubtlessly a beautiful attraction in Oslob that should not be missed.
