On some parts of the trail, you will have to slide down the rocks and pass through small caves in order to reach the other side. If you are not comfortable with a specific activity (e.g., cliff jumping), just tell your guide so you can take an alternative route for you to get to the next point. The trail ends at the well-known Kawasan Falls, a three-tiered waterfall named as the cleanest inland body of water in the country. Here, you can choose to simply rest after a long trek or allow the cascading water to give you a gentle massage. Replenish lost energies by taking your lunch by the riverbank. Challenge yourself by booking this canyoneering and trekking adventure through the Badian Canyon trail in Cebu. Check availability by choosing a date above.
