Travel Guide: The Kawasan Canyoneering in Cebu

If you already heard Kawasan Canyoneering then it would be awesome that you try it as well. From the highway, Kawasan Falls is more than a kilometer away from the highway that you’ll endure with a 20-minute trek on an easy trail. It has three amazing cascades, and the second as lost its height because of the few typhoons that shattered that rock. The good news here is that the two remained to be the same. The Kawasan Canyoneering starts at 1500 pesos per person that includes a ride to the drop off point in a remote village of Alegria, tour guide fees, safety gears, and a set of meal waiting at Kawasan Falls. The activity would take 2 to 3 hours depending on the group size.

Places to Stay in Kawasan

You can stay in some few lodges along the banks of Kawasan Falls that will cost you 900 pesos for the standard rooms and 1500 pesos for family rooms. You can just approach some people there to have a secure room that you will stay on overnight.

Ways to get there

If you come from Cebu City, you can ride a bus with a sign board that says Bato via Barili and tell the conductor that you will be drop off at Matutinao Church. It is important to really be aware of the “via Barili” route because this will travel to the west arterial road. Otherwise, it will lead you to the east arterial road. You can also ride a Badian-bound V-Hire from SM Seaside’s Van Terminal and ask the driver to drop off at Kawasan Junction or Matutinao Church. And if you came from Dumaguete City, you can ride a bus bound to Sibulan Port. Then you can board a Fastcraft or a pumpboat to Bato. From Bato, you can ride a bus bound to Cebu City with “via Barili” route again.
