TINUY-AN FALLS IN BISLIG CITY  

Part 1. Seniors and minors onboard
Part 2. Thought there’s a pool party!
Part 3: Getting naked in Naked Island 
Part 4: The Islands of Britania

Part 5: Raft and rough ride to Tinuy-an Falls

Something bad happened as we’re packing back to Davao, I lost my journal. I don’t trust my memory well enough to remember all the names of the places, the names of the people I met, number details and some important incidents and sentiments of my travel, the reasons why I keep a journal, my son called it my ‘listahan’.If you ask me why the memory lapse? I'm sensing the later effect of getting general anesthesia thrice :(. Anyway, after my husband’s assurance he’ll remember those things for me, I stopped whining and get back to packing. 

We left Britania around 11 in the morning. We’ll have at least an hour on the road back to Bislig City where Tinuy-an Falls is located, our next side trip.

 
TINUY-AN FALLS IN BISLIG CITY

Tinuy-an Falls is located in the inner Barangay of Borboanan in Bislig City. We have to negotiate a 30-minute rough road ride half of our way to the falls, making the trip a little bumpy and unhurried. I really find this trip so informative for the kids. It took us a little longer to descend as we have to stop from time to time to look at something that interests them along the way. They don’t see farmers threshing palay in the city so I have to explain to them how the rice came into their plates and that there are no fairies that do magic and bring in freshly cooked rice on the table. 

We finally made our descend to the river bank. The local government has set up an entrance gate where tourists get stamped for P50.00 to see the falls in full view.

At 95 meters wide, 55 meters drop with three cascading falls and a frothy curtain feature that cascades amid lush vegetation, Tinuy-an Falls is indeed a sight to behold; it’s all worth the long and tiring ride. It's beautiful.

I’m with seniors and minors, so the dare to get into that raft and pull through the strong cascading gush was never a consideration, besides they won’t allow it. So we just stood there, feel the mist that slowly damp our clothes, look at the rapids in awe and in wonder thanking Mother Earth for affording us with such a beauty to reflect. 

There are also cottages you can rent from P200 to P300. Function Hall to hold events for P500. You can get into the raft for P100 and do the Tinuy-an dare and get under the gush to complete your Tinuy-an Falls visit.

And before ending this post off to another side trip, I’d like to appeal to the local government of Bislig to please do not allow billboards like this to be posted at the entrance. The first falls is already a sight to behold and having this on first sight distracts the view. Please!

Though tuyu-un jud nimu ang Tinuy-an, it’s all worth the long and rough ride.
