Visiting the most beautiful waterfall in the Philippines is included in my wish lists this year… And I was lucky to be invited by Davao Kodakers Club in their Surigao trip last week because one of their itineraries was a stopover at Tinuy-an Falls in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur.

This three tiered waterfall is located 12 kilometers away from the national highway of Bislig City, in the forested area of former PICOP (Paper Industries Corporation of the Philippines) charter. The trip going to Tinuy-an Falls was long, winding and bumpy, but in exchange, I got speechless the time I saw the rush of its cool waters. The fall was so much alive that it makes first-time-tourists amazed. It simply takes your breath away. Tinuy-an is tagged as the “Little Niagara of the Philippines” because of its 95meters width, and is considered to be the widest waterfall in the country.


The natural landscapes of this wondrous paradise satisfy travel photographers in every angle. Tall century old trees cover the area, as well as, give you good ambient lighting to capture just the right exposure.


I never regret I grabbed the opportunity to explore the wonders of Surigao, for the second time… And at this time, I got to visit yet another tourist destination. Truly, the province has never failed to astonish laagans like me with its vast number of natural wonders. And if given another chance to go back, I will never say never. (“,)
