Name: Cinchona Falls Series
Location: Cinchona Forest Reserve, Sitio Block 2, Kaatuan, Lantapan, Bukidnon
Features: CINCHONA FALLS is a series of 5 (or more) waterfalls at the base of Mt. Kitanglad Range in Sitio Block II, Kaatuan, Lantapan, Bukidnon. The 5-series waterfalls is doable for a daytrek. The falls cascade close to one another. Trekking expertise is not strictly required on the first two tiers. The third is a little challenging since you have to boulder and cling to a vine to rappel down. The fourth can be accessed through semi-expert rappelling or bouldering. The fifth tier, is tricky and simply dangerous, thus can be accessed through extra care and sufficient energy less the fear of height.
HOW TO GET THERE:
From Malaybalay, take a jeep to Lantapan (P45). Hire a habal-habal direct to Sitio Block 2, Brgy. Kaatuan (P70). Take a short hike to the site.
DON'T FORGET TO ASK PERMISSION FROM ANY BARANGAY OFFICIAL WHEN ENTERING THE PROTECTED AREA.
