Hiking to Binangawan Falls Camiguin, Philippines

Featured, A Hike to Binangawan Falls, Camiguin, Philippines, Survive Travel

Binangawan Falls is a waterfall found inland of Camiguin Island in the Philippines. It is north of the coastal town of Sagay.

Since I had hiked to Katibawasan Falls the day before I had no intention of hiking to Binangawan Falls. I was riding along and saw the sign so I decided it would be a nice break from sitting on the bike. It turned out to be a bit of an adventure.

I got lost and made some friends. Then we all got lost and made some more friends. We found it eventually. The second half of this article will tell you how to get to Binangawan falls. Hopefully, you won’t get as lost as we did.

Entry to Binangawan Falls is free. If you want a guide it will cost around 600php. You don’t need one, but it would have saved us about an hours hike if we had one.

Hiking to Binangawan Falls Camiguin

While riding towards Binangawan Falls I followed the road all the way to the end where it stops… literally the end of the road. Seems that they were building a road all the way to the falls, but then UNESCO came in and said its a heritage site. I’m not sure how true this is. Some local told me.

The end of the road, literally.

Luckily there where two guys there that pointed me in the right direction of where to go. I ended up on the wrong path, but along the way ran into a trio of Germans, who were on the same (wrong) path as me. Together we went to try to find the real path.

We ended up going the wrong way another 2 or 3 times.

After a while, we came across another group (also German), who had taken a different wrong path. Their hotel staff told them to follow the power lines, so we did.

A view captured along the trek.

About an hour later of jungle trekking we got to Bingangawan Falls. It was worth the hike.

Bingangawan waterfall is set in a surreal location. Little birds flying around, very refreshing water trickling off the vegetation, etc.

After a little dip, we did the one hour hike back and then went our separate ways.

Getting to Binangawan Falls in Camiguin

Finding the correct path to Binangawan Falls took a little time. Once we were on it, it was pretty straightforward.

Park your bike at the end of the bridge then look behind you. There is a path that leads up the side of the hill.

From the end of the road look behind you. There is the path you need to climb up.

Go up the path and take the first trail right, so you go along the ridge of the hill. It follows some black pipe for a little while but then forks off. Follow the power lines!

You will go over the hill. I remember thinking a few times, “Why are we moving up?” Also, you can hear water below. I’m pretty sure this is a smaller, but closer, waterfall.

Taken on the way to the falls – not during the trek.

In any case, to get to Binangawan Falls keep following underneath the power lines. Once the powerlines stop there will not be any confusion about which track to take.

You will go over and under stuff. Don’t worry, you are on the right path.

Visiting Binangawan Falls took a lot longer than I initially expected so I caught the sun going down on the way back.

Be careful. Some of it is pretty close to the edge and a misplaced foot could see you falling off!
