How to get to Inambakan Falls?
From Cebu City, you can take vans for hire or buses to get to the town of Ginatilan. Travel time can take 4-5 hours, depending on the traffic. Once you arrive, look for a tricycle or multicab that agrees in taking you there for a fair price. The falls is located 3.9 kilometers from the town center, and can be reached by small private vehicles. The road to the falls is a bit tricky, which poses a danger to those who are unfamiliar with it. If you don’t want problems along the way, it is best to hire a local driver who knows the path so well.
The multicab will eventually stop at a certain drop-off, since the road is smaller this time. You will need to trek to the falls for approximately five minutes. Nature lovers will surely get excited with the scenery along the way. The river starts appearing in a few minutes during the trek, and the path is surrounded by lush greens and coconut trees. By this time, you will hear the rustling sound of water from afar. Not long, the waterfalls will appear in front of you.
When going to the waters, it is important to stay alert for jagged stones and slippery rocks. The last thing you’d probably want during your visit here is getting injured or stabbed by rough rocks. It is also important to take precautionary measures when swimming. If you have lifevests, wear them before going into the water. Although there are some parts that are just shallow, it is wise to be cautious, especially if you have children who don’t know how to swim.
