The Mesmerizing Tinuy-an Falls of Bislig

The Tinuy-an Falls in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur is considered the widest waterfall in the country. Often referred to as the ‘Niagara of the Philippines,’ the four-level cascading Tinuy-an Falls is 95 meters wide and 55 meters high.

The Tinuy-an Falls is one of the many beautiful tourist spots in Mindanao that you definitely have to visit.

Check out my photos of the stunning Tinuy-an Falls below.

The first drop of Tinuy-an Falls is basically a smaller and shorter version of the actual fall.

A few local kids were playing with these fruits. Using imagination, and a little creativity, they managed to transform these fruits into a working toy-car.

The second and most prominent drop of Tinuy-an Falls is the waterfall system’s most prominent drop.

To get to the second drop, you will have to climb up a narrow staircase. The entire place is wet the whole year round. So, even the small twigs you see protruding from rocks are teeming with life.


The third drop of Tinuy-an Falls may be less steep, but it is as beautiful and as ravishing as the second one.

The fourth and final drop of Tinuy-an Falls is subtle and quiet but still packed with lots of fire and mystery.

Locals cross a man-made bamboo bridge at the bottom of the second drop  to get to the other side of the river.

Hoping to get lucky, these two men wait patiently for their first catch.
