    Beautiful waterfall
    Came here after the Oslob whale shark which was just 15 car ride away. Up steep slopes and we took the motorbikes up. My younger child, 6 years in front of me between the rider. They were fast due to the rather steep climb. Ride up is less than 2 mins and save your legs from climbing those slopes. But please hold on tight. The waterfall wasn’t that crowded when we reached around 10am and the deepest point reached slightly below chest area. 1st pool was a fish spa where you can dip your feet in to get those dead skin nibble away by fishes. Fun experience. Toilet available as well.

    Feels like you’re in a movie - it is stunning!
    The nicest waterfall I have ever visited in my life. If you are in Oslob you should definitely check it out! You need to get a motorbike up and down as it is very steep. Tuk Tuk’s won’t be able to get up. It’s 60 pesos each way and once you reach the top you then need to get another motorbike up and down which is 50 pesos each way. Be careful though as they don’t provide helmets! It’s 50 pesos per person to enter the waterfall but it is definitely worth it! You feel like you are in a movie. The water is blue and there’s lots of places to get amazing photos! The way the water trickles down is mesmerising and even some locals said that they have never been before and it’s the nicest waterfall they’ve ever seen! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this trip!

    So refreshing, beautiful
    Perfect place after the shark whale swim. Fun scoter ride to get there. So green and lush bamboo surrounding. The fall is huge and was a sunny day to amazing view. Great huge trees reaching the sky and the breeze of the fall is so smooth. We could stay hours dipping in the fall. A must to see.

Only a 15-20 ride from centre of Oslob, at Falls you have the choice to pay 50pesos to get a ride down and back up or walk the roughly 600 meter steep hill.
Entrance is free, and it’s worth having a goid look around the falls for best picture location for selfie 😁.
Not much water right now but thats ok- still worth it in my opinion 👍

One word. Overrated. I mean it was beautiful, but that was it. The water was too dirty to swim in, and even if it wasn’t there were some weird animal that was swimming in it.
It was also far to walk, so we had to pay a scooter to drive us multiple times

Sadly, how this former majestic waterfalls is slowly drying out. It is truly sad and heartbreaking to see this beauty slowly dying. With the minimal rain showers, water that flows down is also getting weaker. But even with its current situation, this site is still a must visit when you’re around the area. And get that realization how our current actions towards mother nature affects as slowly as time goes by.

The waterfall is a short drive from the main road. I recommend taking the motorbike service to visit the waterfall (but be prepared for a short thrill!). The waterfall area is clean, the view is awesome. Worth every shot!

Really fun, scenic waterfalls that you could spend fifteen minutes or an hour in, depending on how you feel. I sat here for an hour, resting my legs in the water or playing in the waterfall. It was absolutely lovely. I was able to catch it when it was super busy, and another time when I was one of the only people there.

The most magnificent waterfall I have ever seen! The whole place reminded me of scenes from Avatar! You can get in the water if you want, but it was a bit chilly for me. Bring a towel if you plan to get wet. It's just 10 minutes from the Oslob whale sharks, and no walking required at all! The locals take you right to the waterfall on motorbike (around 5 minutes) from the parking area. Must go if in the area!!!

I had visited Tumalog Falls in 2015 and it was a wonderful site. However, since then the falls has almost no water supply and is mostly having trickling water. I did not know this and went there with my girlfriend, and found that the natural pool below the falls is not even upto the knee. Forget swimming, this is now a big bath tub. There were only 5-6 people other than us and it was not fun anymore.
I don't like saying this , but Tumalog Falls has almost ceased to exist, and its better to stay clear of this place until you hear news from locals that Tumalog Falls has gushing water back again. There are other falls that has water supply.

The ride down to the falls is on a motorcycle. Or you can walk it. My advice. Pay for the ride up and down the hill. A few pesos and it's well worth it. The falls are incredible. Water is crisp and cold. Not deep, but still have a great time swimming around. Plenty of places to do photography work. Bring extra clothes to change in or just dry off naturally. This is one of the best places that I've seen. You can also rent a small hut for a afternoon lunch break or just hang out in. The people are super nice and friendly. Definitely worth while trip. Don't miss out on seeing the falls. Well worth the drive and the scenery is awesome.
