Kawasan Canyoneering is becoming one of the most popular attraction in Cebu where adventurers walk through the trails of nature, jump waterfalls, swim a river and climb boulders. The activity starts from Kanlaob Alegria and end up in Kawasan Falls in Badian.
You can hop on a bus if you’re publicly commuting from Cebu South Bus Terminal or a Van for Hire at the South V-Hire Terminal. Both of the terminals are just across each other and located at N. Bacalso St. Cebu City. You can also rent a van that will probably cost you around 3000 pesos in one way.
The cheapest way is to ride the bus from Cebu South Bus Terminal to Matutinao Badian which would just cost you 150 pesos then riding a habal-habal at 70 pesos per person to the drop off point where you start the activity. If you’re with car rental, it would take rough 3 to hours of travel and as you arrive at the area, you can park at the Matutinao Chapel. The parking fee will cost you 100 pesos. In booking a guide for the activity, you can just look in the place since that there are numerous of operators at the area and only cost the same rate.
The canyoneering will start a quick safety briefing, and after is a short walk to Kanlaob River where you’ll be jumping off the first waterfall as you enter the Kanlaob canyon. The downstream is not quite hard than you think, and a perfect choice for beginners because it’s relatively effortless. The heat of the summer in Cebu is a call for a cold refreshing dip, and one of the best way to do it is to jump and swim in Canyoneering. You will also witness the beautiful scenic nature around you that is considered as a bonus. Be prepared for a bit of swimming, long trek and climbing that you will experience as a newbie adventurer in Kawasan Canyoneering.
