Binangawan Falls Review, Camiguin, Philippines

This post is a Binangawan Falls review. Binangawan Falls is a waterfall found inland of Camiguin Island in the Philippines. It is north of the coastal town of Sagay. Entry to Binangawan Falls is free. If you want a guide it will cost around 600php, but you don’t need one. Since I had hiked to Katibawasan Falls the day before I had no intention of going 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.

Binangawan Falls Review

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, its what someone 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 two or three 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 pretty interesting jungle trekking we got to Binganawan Falls. It was worth the hike.

It was 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 Binganawan Falls in Camiguin

Finding the correct path to Binganawan 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 pretty sure this is a smaller, but closer water-fall.

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

In any case, to get to Binganawan Falls keep following underneath the power lines. Once the powerlines stop there will not be any confusion of 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!

    Lovely pictures. You should visit Indonesia next (if you haven’t been there). Although I don’t recommend going to bali area right now (Mt. agung is about to erupt anytime now), there are lots of other islands to explore πŸ™‚

      I’ve been to Indonesia a couple of times. I really like it there also. I still have a lot to see there so will probably go back there one day.
