1) The waterfalls are one of the best that I have seen in the whole Philippines. 2) The waterfalls are just a stone's throw away from the highway. You can view the cascades from the road. 3) The facilities of Aliwagwag Falls Eco-Park are very good. There are very decent and well-designed guest-houses and dining areas.

I've seen a lot of waterfalls and this one is one of the best I've seen. It has been dubbed as the "stairway to heaven" with its 127 tiers, 21 of which reachable by trail. At the end of the trail, there is a monkey bridge that you can try for 50 pesos. It's just beside the road so trekking... More

If your in the Davao / Tagum area Aliwagwag is the perfect place th spend the day. Get there by 9am to get picnic table(s). Area is well maintained although some of the showers need attention. The zip line was closed the day we went but we did the monkey bridge which was fun. The drive from Monticello is spectacular... More

Visited Aliwagwag Falls for a field class and learned it is still of young age based on the rock erosion and structure. On a lighter note, it is a very nice waterfalls comprised of several cascades. The staff in Aliwagwag Eco Park are also friendly and very accommodating.

This was above my expectations. The crystal clear cold water was so soothing. Thank God for my improvised water camera!!! We were able to capture our underwater moments. Tinago vs. Aliwagwag? I like Aliwagwag more since you don't have to spent the100 steps from the parking lot to enjoy the water falls experience. The cottages as well was presentable for... More

I was blown away by the beauty of it's cascades.Yes, it is not a single drop kind of waterfall. It is a multi-tiered falls with a stunning view of the mountains. You can swim in its ice-cold water or just simply sit on a rock and let the water do a natural massage. You can also try their 680m zip... More

On our way to Campawasan Curtain Falls, we were pleasantly surprised by the spectacular view of cascading falls just along the road in Cateel a few minutes after passing by the boundary of Compostela Valley.

You need to bring towel as you will be tempted to take a quick plunge on the water. The place is well maintained. Its worth the entrance fee for 50 pesos per head. As you can... More
