Ingkumhan Falls is one of the best waterfalls in Bohol and a must-see while you are adventuring around the island.
Cliff jumps and rope swings are just some of the reasons that make this Bohol tourist attraction one of the top locations to visit!
I have put together this ultimate guide to Ingkumhan Falls Bohol, including how to get there, how much it costs, and what to expect when you arrive.
WHERE IS INGKUMHAN FALLS?
Ingkumhan Waterfalls is located in Dimiao on Bohol Island in the Philippines.
From the main tourist area of Panglao, it’s a 65km drive that takes around 1 hour to reach these falls.
HOW TO GET TO INGKUMHAN FALLS
The best way to get to Ingkumhan Falls in Bohol is to rent a scooter from one of the many scooter rental stores dotted around Panglao. Scooter rentals are around 300 – 350 pesos per day with a full tank of gas.
Currently, there are no Bohol tours that I know of which include these falls on the itinerary so you will have to find your own way to this location.

ARRIVING AT INGKUMHAN FALLS
When you arrive, there is a small parking lot and a ticket office at the jump-off point where you’ll have to pay the entrance fee which is 20 pesos.
From here, follow the signs along the concrete path to get down to the falls. It is an easy hike that takes no more than 10 minutes to reach the bottom.
On the way down, I passed a few locals who stopped me for a chat and to practice their English. They were super friendly and they insisted I took a photo of them, so I did. Got to love these social interactions with the locals in the Philippines!
As we reached the bottom of the stairs, Ingkumhan Waterfalls revealed itself and I could not wait to run and jump into the natural-made swimming pool.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT INGKUMHAN FALLS
The main set of falls features a flow of water that stretches across a limestone rockface around 10 meters wide and approximately 8 meters tall.
The water fills a huge natural pool that reminded me of blue Gatorade which I was almost tempted to drink.
There is a rope swing that can be used about halfway up the falls, so you will have to climb up the rock face to reach it.
Surprisingly the surface of the rock isn’t that slippery and the depth of the pool is around 3 to 4 meters deep so you won’t need to worry about hitting the bottom.
There is also a 5-meter cliff jump that can be found on the left-hand side of the falls that is a lot of fun!
I always like to make sure the landing is clear of debris and large rocks before doing any cliff jumping so I recommend you do the same.

There are plenty of seating areas and sheltered huts around the edges of the falls to perch up for a while and enjoy this incredible Bohol attraction.
I visited Ingkumhan Falls Bohol on a Sunday and it was very busy with locals and other tourists. Try and time your visit for a weekday if you want to enjoy Ingkumhan Falls without the crowds.
