Information about Montañeza Falls
Montañeza Falls is one of the lesser-known but equally enchanting waterfalls in Cebu. This cascade is situated in the municipality of Malabuyoc, which sits about 126 KM from Cebu City. Along with the sight of the falls, this spot became popular among locals and tourists because of canyoneering. Thanks to the waterfalls' geographic features such as rock holes and small drops, it quickly turned into the perfect place for a thrilling canyon tour. During a canyoneering experience here, adventure seekers can rappel down the sides of seven sets of different waterfalls and slide or jump down rapids. You are also bound to walk, swim, climb, jump, and crawl through rock holes when
traversing the creeks, streams, and narrow ravine of the falls.
Tourists also have the option to rent a bamboo ladder to use for some difficult parts of the falls. The pinnacle of the canyoning activity is descending a 30-meter high waterfall with an overhang. By the foot of the falls, adventurers can get an intense yet relaxing water massage. However, local
officials only allow trekking to the final and highest point of the falls when the weather is clear.
Best time to visit
For a canyoneering destination like Montañeza Falls, it is best to visit it during the dry months from December to May. Peak travel season is during the months of March, April, and May, and while you will avoid chances of rain, expect to bump into a huge crowd of tourists.
