We were done with whale shark watching at a little past nine in the morning.  We got breakfast at one of the stalls in the beach — grilled whole chicken, liempo and rice.  Since we were staying overnight in Oslob, we were now wondering what else to do with all the time we have… besides sleeping (sayang naman ang oras).  IMG_6827We found ourselves on a multicab (once again arranged by Gwen, our homestay host), driving to the highlands of Barangay Tomalog, Oslob.  After 15 minutes drive from the beach, we got to the drop off point where we paid Php 20.00 entrance fee.

We were told that the hike going to the falls would be around another 15 mins… or we could take a habal-habal going.  We decided to walk since the road was paved though it was very steep… probably the reason why most vehicles don’t go beyond the entrance area.


The hike down probably took us more than 15 minutes… with the usual stops for photo ops and to catch our breaths.  On hindsight, I think it is always a good thing to bring a thumb stick or hiking poles when going on hikes to help you keep your balance and reduce stress on your legs, knees, feet and back.  It was a tiring walk but manageable compared to most destinations that require similar treks.

Imposing cliffs and a lush jungle surround the waterfalls.  As you near the site, you are greeted by mini pools.  It’s a good thing that they did not try to develop the area and put some artificial structures in the area.IMG_6862

When you get to falls, it is simply breathtaking.  Unlike other waterfalls that overwhelm you with their power, Toslob falls is a large wall of cascading rainfall.  It’s as gentle as you can get.IMG_6858

The fresh water cooled us down and washed away the saltiness from our skins.  It was a good place to think or meditate.  We somehow lost track of time and took us awhile to decide to go back to where our rented vehicle was suppose to pick us up.IMG_6868

We decided to take the habal-habal going back.  Too tired… too lazy… by this time we were all sleepy.
