Tumalog Falls, Oslob Cebu

Last January of 2016, we had an abrupt roadtrip to Oslob. Our target destination was Cancuaay Beach Resort but we made a lot of side-trips/dropped-by along the way. Tumalog falls was included in the side trips. The falls is also located in Oslob, 170 kilometers away from Cebu City. There were a lot of visitors at that time that we just follow the trail of tourists until we arrived at the area where we parked the car and walked our way to the falls.


This heritage map we found in the area lead us to another destination for us that day, the Cuartel. Below is waterfall's rules and regulations:




It was a steep slope down the way. 



Nah, you don't have to do such acts..We are just being playful...












As you can see, the water stream was so thin. The water basin was so cold and full of local and foreign tourists bathing. We're just their not to dip into the water but to witness the beauty of the place. I was quite discouraged by the thin water streaming down but maybe because it was January and approaching summer.

Before I publish this long overdue blog, I looked for latest photos of the falls and I'm glad that it is coming back to its natural beauty. 

The Thrifty Wanderer has been to Tumalog Falls!!!

Sarnimian Inland Resort, Rosario, Agusan del Sur

Part of our tour around CARAGA, was a side-trip to Sarnimian Inland Resort located in Rosario, Agusan Del Sur. We went their riding a motorcycle we borrowed from a friend.

The place is easy to be found since their signage is just along national highway. 


We visited the place on a weekday, so there were only few guests in the resort. I got a photo of some important information about the place, for readers' reference. Please note that this is not a sponsored or paid blog :)

A crocodile slide.


We went there to have our lunch and to try their Sky-biking for only 50pesos. Amazing..! I forgot to take photos of their menu but it's affordable as far as I can remember.










They are still improving the place, I am hoping they add more activities aside from sky-biking.


We didn't have much time to linger in the place but we love our sky-biking experience and our short visit to Sarnimian Inland Resort was added to our places visited around CARAGA.
