HOW TO GET HERE

There are a couple of options on how to get to Lagaan Falls Siquijor and they are by scooter, habal-habal, or tricycle.

You can rent a scooter in Siquijor for as little as 250 pesos per day and make your own way over to the falls.

When you arrive in Siquijor by ferry, you’ll find that there are half a dozen scooter rental stores located at the ferry terminal which is super convenient. You can pick up a set of wheels for the time you plan to spend on Siquijor Island.

If you are not confident driving a scooter, the other option is to hail down a tricycle or habal-habal (motorbike taxi) along the main road in San Juan and get a ride to Siquijor Lagaan Falls.

The cost depends on how good your bartering skills are, though for a 30-minute drive you can expect to pay around 150-200 pesos.

LAGAAN FALLS ENTRANCE FEE

The entrance fee is 30 pesos and parking is free.

At the entrance, local guides will offer to take you down to the falls but this is not necessary as the trail is clearly marked.

However, I visited these falls on my own and decided to take a guide for good company and tipped him 100 pesos at the end.

ARRIVING AT LAGAAN FALLS SIQUIJOR

When you arrive at the Google maps pin location, there is a sheltered parking area where you can safely leave your scooter.

There is a small tour desk at the entrance to Lagaan Waterfall where you’ll first have to pay the entrance fee and sign your name and nationality in a book before heading down the trailhead.

From here, it takes around 15-minutes to walk along a dirt trail underneath a dense rainforest canopy to reach the falls.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SIQUIJOR LAGAAN FALLS

The first level of the falls features a large natural swimming hole with rope swings, small caves, rock jumps, and a wide set of falls. It’s an adventurer’s playground and a slightly similar setup to Cambugahay Falls.

On a nice day, it’s a great spot to hang out and go swimming under the falls to cool off, and swinging from the rope swing is a lot of fun too!

When I visited, I saw a local guy sliding down a natural rock slide into the catch basin of the falls. I couldn’t resist giving this a go myself!

The lush jungle that surrounds the falls is what makes this place so tranquil and it’s definitely one of my favorite Siquijor tourist spots to hang out. See these photos for proof!

Have you got travel insurance for the Philippines? We all know accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance will save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

Don’t end the adventure here as there is another level of the falls to explore. Follow the jungle trail upstream to where you will find small freshwater rock pools and natural jacuzzis.

You could easily spend a few hours here jumping from pool to pool and swinging from the tree swings and not get bored.

There are plenty of tables, hammocks, and chill-out spaces around the edges of the falls where you can set down your belongings before going for a dip. There’s also a make-shift change room for visitors to use if need be.
