Mount Talinis Diaries: The Twin Falls of Nagabi

The Twin Falls of Nagabi is one of the spots that I was really looking forward to visit during our 3-day exploration in Mount Talinis. I have thalassophobia and I also don’t know how to swim, but nevertheless, I love going to any waterfalls. The sound of the heavy downpour  and the feel of cold water against your skin is deeply relaxing for me.

We were on our third day of trekking, and we were already comfortable of our whole situation. We didn’t even want to leave the place. I, myself, was enjoying everything. No internet, no distractions, just, pure uninterrupted reconnection with nature.

Right after we set off from Rancho, we immediately went straight to the Guard House, where we’d eat lunch and leave our stuff so we can proceed to the Twin Falls.

From the Guard House, you would only need to trek for about 15-20 minutes to reach the Twin Falls of Nagabi. I was spellbound the moment I reached the river. It was as if I was entering a rather magical world. Oh, the sweet smell of the moist mosses and the sight of the entangled trees was invigorating. It was the complete picture of a beautiful distant dream.

One of the reasons why I love the Twin Falls of Nagabi is that it is not easy to get there. It is situated in the middle of the dense forest of the Talinis mountain range, so you have to literally trek the mountain in order for you to reach there. That being said, only a few people can actually go there. Only those who are truly determined.

We had the two waterfalls by ourselves, so I definitely enjoyed everything. Sadly though, we did not get to stay there for a long time. It was about to rain and our guide warned us that it would be extremely hard to cross the river if the water goes up. So sad.

The Twin Falls of Nagabi is one of the best places you can visit when following the Apolong trail. It would be an absolute miss if you fail to visit the twin waterfalls while you are in there. I would like to commend the Cuernos De Negros Mountaineers and all forest guards in Mount Talinis for keeping this place as clean as it should be. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

  • Looks super clean! Getting inside a forest is something I’d like to do. Nature is the best solution to our busy lives! I think I’ll be fine without internet for a few days as long as I’m in full vacay mode. Lol.

    I love chasing waterfalls. Sadly, it’s been quite a long time since I visited one.

      Di ko pwede dili mag online kung mag work, so yeah, it has to be on full vacay mode. Hahaha

  • 10-15 minutes trek looks like what I did in Casaroro Falls. The falls uniquely looks good! and it’s great to hear that there’s a kind-hearted group that maintains the cleanliness of the place. Sayang lang kay kadali ramo naka-stay sa place.

  • Idola this girl! .. trekking kaayo.. waah..twin falls of nagabi.. wew.. nice kaayo ang pagbuak sa dagan sa tubig..

    The twin falls look AMAZING! If going through the smell of sulfur is what it takes, then GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • CAOLANO

    They look majestic. The purple bra though… not so. hahahaha. You just have a way to attract your admirers dai!

    • hannafrej

    There’s another falls back in my hometown called “Magkawas” that really looks like the one in this post. Both look absolutely beautiful!

    • hannafrej

      Yes! In Lanuza, right? I did see a picture of that waterfalls some time ago. 🙂

    I can still remember during our trek in Mount Talinis wherein we were too exhausted by that 2 days trek. The consolation we’ve got is to have experienced the magnificent falls of nagabi and Casaroro.

    The twin falls in Nagabi is not that high, but the waters…. Chills all over the bosy.. it was an ice-cold bath. But overall the experience was really great. I am happy that you seem to have a great time spent on this falls. Keep on traveling and inspiring people. You’re such an inspiration. 🙂

  • wow, I didn’t know about this falls yet. It looks like this still really left in its innate state and would love to go here if I get the opportunity. This is another falls in Cebu that I should pen on my bucket list. Thank you for sharing!

  • Maypa ang falls, naay twin. Ang uban walay forever. Alone na sila karon. Kaila ka nila? Nindot sila dad-on dira og balik para mangaligo na. It’s a good place to chill out from the stress sa city.

    • hannafrej

      Looya pud ana nila oy. Kinsa kaha na sila noh? Hahaha
