Tucked away in the mountainous area between Ronda and Dumanjug is a little-known enchanting attraction known as Cambanog Falls. The road to this mysterious place is challenging but worth the travel.
The journey there will be quite a road trip as it transverse some rocky roads. But that is not the hard part yet. When you get there, you’ll have to walk through some muddy paths (some involving sliding down a long route) to reach the tail end of the falls. It then involves transversing slippery rocks and muddy waters to get to the main attraction.
We recommend Cambanog Falls for those seeking to explore under-explored falls in the area. The attraction is not yet developed, and we suggest not going there in the rainy season as it can get very muddy.
The path toward the main falls is challenging, but a sigh of relief awaits you once you see the waterfalls’ beauty.

Entrance Fee: No entrance fee as of this writing. We recommend getting a local guide as it is challenging to go to the main falls.
Note: Bring plenty of water and snacks as there are no shops around and the place is kind of secluded. Sunscreen is highly recommended as you will be under the sun most of the time.
How to Get There:
By Bus: From Cebu South Bus Terminal, take a bus going to Ronda or Dumanjug. Get a motorcycle from the town proper (habal-habal) to take you to Barangay Cambanog. We suggest asking the driver to wait for you there as there is no public transportation going back.
By Private Transportation: Navigate using Waze or Google / Apple Maps and key in Cambanog Falls as your destination. The area is not yet developed, and there are no dedicated parking spaces, but you can park your car near the house at the entrance.
Cambanog Falls is approximately 80 km south of Cebu. Travel time will take around 3 hours from Cebu City and you will be passing through some rough roads on the way there.
