Aguinid Falls: Mystical Hideaway in Samboan

Aside from the awesome beaches and the Kinugay, Samboan has a lot more to offer. And we discovered it when our two young tour guides brought us to the undiscovered beauty called Aguinid Falls.

ย The Aguinid Falls is actually a system of falls which runs some two kilometers from its base. Its falls are not as high as those in Kawasan. They are small actually. But they have unique shapes and forms and are quite a sight to behold. The Aguinid Falls are a hundred percent uninjured, untouched, and un-commercialized. The only trash you can find there are rotten leaves from trees (which are categorically not trash).

Samboan’s Aguinid Falls. Lovely!

The long walk to the falls.

Through coconut trees…

Hello, Mr. Cow!

Ludy can’t take the heat

Shade at last!

Ahhhh! The sound of water!

Let’s move up!


Just keep walking…

Just keep walking…

Wow! This place is really cool!


We had to climb up this slope. Very slippery. It was quite dangerous.

Just keep walking.

Here’s another awesome waterfall. Notice the rock formation. Awesome!

More walking required.

Very tall trees

Wow! Nice!

I can’t wait to go back!
