“WOW! Hidden gem of Mindanao!”

Aliwagwag Falls
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Cateel
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 December 2016

Entrance Fee: 100 pesos/head
Monkey line: 50 pesos

Good:
One of the most beautiful place I've been! The water was clean and cold! It is well maintained by their government! Good job! The structures mounted mixed well with the natural beauty of the place!

Bad:
Travel time - If you're doing it solo like me. It will take arounf 35 mins to get there from Cateel town via Habal-habal/Motorcycle ride. Cost of trip 400-500 vice versa. The driver will wait for you while you enjoy! :)

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 with sweeping vistas. There were 3 CAFGU check points enforcing security. The road is being improved from the west so in the future it will be an easy drive.

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 tourists who would like to unwind from the very busy city sched.

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 line!

Coming from Cateel town proper it is about 45 minutes of habal-habal ride. Entrance fee is P50. zip line is P200.

Aliwagwag Falls was part of my 5-day solo backpacking around Davao.

Things to bring:
- change of clothes
- towel
- toiletries
- action camera or whatever you have to document this wonderful experience
- food - did not see a place to buy food so better be sure to have something to eat
