  • Aliwagwag Falls in Davao Oriental
  • Being a tropical country, the Philippines offers numerous waterfalls where expats and locals alike can enjoy. One of them is Aliwagwag Falls, which is considered as the country’s highest waterfalls and is one of the most visited natural attractions in Davao Oriental.


    Located 30-40 minutes away from Cateel (pronounced as ka-ti-il), Aliwagwag Falls is made up of 84 cascading waterfalls, with rock formations varying in shapes and sizes, and is located within the Aliwagwag Falls Eco Park.


    You can either take a dip in the cool water or just simply admire the majestic cascading falls of Davao Oriental. There are swimming areas for adults and kids, but make sure not to get too close to the center of the falls as the current there is very strong.

    Don’t worry, the fees are cheap and budget-friendly especially if you are going with your friends and family.

    Adult – Php 50.00

    Children – Php 10.00

    How to get there:

    From Manila, you can get to Davao by plane.There are several airlines servicing the route. From Davao airport, go to Ecoland Bus Terminal or Gaisano Mall terminal and take the bus either via Mati or Compostela Valley. The Compostela route is shorter but it is not advisable to take this route during the rainy season. Upon reaching the town of Cateel, you can ride a habal-habal to Aliwagwag.
