Southern Cebu has quickly become a major adventure and tourist destination, thanks to its beautiful river systems and majestic waterfalls along that serve as a stage to myriad of daring activities such as waterfall chasing, river trekking and canyoneering. Experience all these in Kanlaob River, South Cebu’s ultimate adventure destination.
The four-kilometer downstream canyoneering course in Kanlaob River starts in Barangay Compostela in the town of Alegria and ends in Kawasan Falls of Barangay Matutinao in the town of Badian. The journey involves trekking, waterfall sliding, cliff jumping, crawling, swimming and floating along the scenic stretch of the river.
The adventure starts with a jump off an 18 feet cascade and ends with 45 feet jump off the second level of Kawasan Falls. Wait! What? Forty-five feet jump? Don’t worry, the it is optional. 🙂
The entire journey takes around 3 to 4 hours to complete and at the end of course, you may enjoy the beautiful and cold water of Kawasan Falls.
So how much does canyoneering in Kanlaob River costs? The Municipality of Alegria implemeted a standard rate of P1,500 per person for the adventure inclusive of guide fee, all entrance and registration fees, motorbike transport, and use of lifevest, helmet and shoes. I recommend my guide, Jun-jun Luardo (ContactNo: +639358595257). He is very professional yet funny, kind and a very good photographer. 😀
If you do not have a waterproof camera, there are GoPro rental in Matutinao for P500, bring your own memory card.
