I visited October 2018, a few months ago December 2017- a storm hit this province hard. Many roads and natural attractions including Tinago Falls were somehow ravaged. Ulan-ulan is still accessible, however there is an extra walkgoing to the jumpoff as the roads are now being repaired. Also, some parts of the stairs going to the falls are a bit risky. If you are brave enough you can visit the upper falls- Recoletos Falls- not recommended for elderly and kids though. The place is refreshing. Looking forward to see repairs a and development in the area to make it safer.

I came here with my cousins. Going there, we rode via motorcycles and walked another 45 minutes to get to the falls. It was breathtaking. It was actually like rainfall because of the force of the waterfall and the water was so cold. Get ready to get wet even if you dont plan on taking a dip!

Beautiful falls and hike in the mountains of Biliran. A mostly pristine and unspoiled tourist attraction due to the difficulty of getting there and the hike. It likely only gets one or two small groups of tourists per day. We did not see any other tourists when we were there and I suspect we were the only visitors that day. We did see some locals in the area who were doing agricultural activities. Most of them seemed to be making the tuba palm wine alcoholic drink from the coconut trees. You need to arrange a habal habal to take you to the end of the road where the path begins. Some drivers will take you to the falls themselves but local guides are also available at the end of the road. The hike in is reasonably difficult though it was probably more difficult than usual when we were there in March of 2018 because there were many spots still damaged from the landslides that occurred during typhoon Urduja. We couldn't get to the second waterfall because the path was too dangerous due to landslide damage. Possibly the path has been repaired now. The hike is very beautiful as are the falls. The water is cold and refreshing but the ground is rocky so I would recommend bringing aquatic footwear to protect your feet. Definitely a worthwhile trip if you are able to do a reasonably demanding hike. We combined it with a trip to some of the rice terraces in that area which makes it a whole day activity. The rice terraces are on a different road to the interior than the falls but not far away so easy to do both with a habal habal.

If ur planing to visit lilbit offbeat place with natural beauty then this is the perfect place for you.. U can get thr easily by flight from Manila to tacloban and then by Bus to Naval and naval to kawayyan u can hire habal habal .. (motorbike-local transport) Kawayyan village is fully covered with dense coconuts and banana trees and Ulan ulan waterfall is the elegant waterfall which gives illusion of a curtain of white water came over the Grey rocks as if it were being poured from giant bucket that never emptied and this gives perfect look of paradise To reach this waterfall u have to hire habal habal guy so he can guide you properly becoz any wrong turn in ur trekking will lead you to different way (half of the road u can go by habal habal and then almost 1 hr trekking but most scenic with natural beauty) worth it. Thr are two falls one is reculatos and other one is ulan ulan and ths is bigest one, waterfall breeze is enough to make you wet and as you go near the waterfall is feel so amazing

You can reach Ulan Ulan falls after a reasonably challenging trek. Ulan or "rain" is what you should expect upon reaching the falls. Because of its aggressive current, guests can take a storm-like shower 24/7 in this area. It might be challenging to swim in the water or go under the falls itself because the current and wind are too strong. This is probably the best falls in the area. MUST VISIT!
