‘Natuyuan’ Falls?

This is what I was expecting to see when I made a last minute decision to go to Bislig City in Surigao del Sur, after I was told by my doctor that I cannot risk climbing Mt. Apo, the Philippines’ highest peak [thanks to my lingering knee problem]:

But then again, what’s to expect? It hasn’t rained — according to my guide — in Bislig since summer started. I was a tad disappointed, but no less mesmerized by this beautiful and expansive waterfalls:

Dubbed as the “Niagara Falls of the Philippines”, Tinuy-an Falls in Brgy. Borboanan, Bislig City is a spectacular multilevel affair, rising as high as a four-story building and spanning a breathtaking 95 meters across. As one approaches, three tiers of cascades can easily be seen, the fourth one obstructed from view, as it is well atop the main waterfall head.

Sadly, I was only able to photograph the lower level and the main waterfalls, as the water level was low.

Hopefully, with the monsoon season afoot, Tinuy-an Falls will be more vibrant and full when I return a couple of months from now.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
