Tinuy-an Falls at Bislig City, Surigao del Sur

I had a rare opportunity of joining a group of teachers from Central Mindanao University heading to Surigao del sur. First on there itinerary is Tinuy-an Falls.

From the national highway of Bislig one has to travel 15 kilometers  towards the Tinuy-an Falls. Its almost a 30 minutes ride of rough and bumpy road. with wooden bridges, one of bridge is quite weak that passengers of our bus has to walk across the bridge to lessen the weight of the bus.

Tinuy-an Falls is located in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur. It is the main tourist attraction in Bislig city.Tinuy-an Falls are 95 m wide and 55 meters (180 ft) high.

When we reached Tinuy-an, its almost 8:00 am. and we are greeted by the magnificent work of nature. It was all worth the travel for almost 15 hours from Musuan Bukidnon. This is one of the most extra ordinary waterfalls I've ever seen.

 It looks like a white curtain that flows in three levels and is said to be the widest waterfall in the Philippines. Its like a three layered stairs, covered with a flowing curtain. The water is so clean and crystal clear. A magnificent rainbow can be seen very morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

A wooden bridge is built so tourist can cross on the other side.
Here is a short video of the Tinuy-an falls.
