The first drop of Tinuy-an Falls

A few local kids were playing with these fruits. Using a little creativity and imagination, they transformed these fruits into a working toy-car.

The second drop of Tinuy-an Falls

To get to the second drop, you will have to climb up a narrow staircase. The entire place is wet the whole year round. So, even the small twigs you see protruding from rocks are teeming with life.


The third drop of Tinuy-an Falls

The view from the second drop is gorgeous.

The fourth and final drop of Tinuy-an Falls

Locals cross a man-made bamboo bridge to get to the other side of the river.

Hoping to get lucky, these two men wait patiently for their first catch.
