A Scenic Waterfall Ton-ok Falls

Calbayog City has about 157 barangays and they're divided into three (3) districts, the Calabayog District, the Tinambacan District and the Oquendo District. Barangay Sigo which is a part of the third district, is where Ton-ok Falls is located.

Ton-ok Falls is a scenic waterfall hidden in lush tropical vegatation, which nature has placed out of easy reach to preserve its beauty. It is a source of hydroelectric power.

How to get there:

From the Calabayog terminal, take a tricycle that goes to Oquendo District or to Barangay Sigo. But before you do, tell the drivers you're going to Ton-ok Falls so they can help you get the right ride. It will take you about 45 minutes to Sigo.

When you get there, you'll see this post, and a road that's kind of narrow. From there, you'll have to hike for about 20 minutes to get to the place.

These 3 little boys were our guides.

On your way, you'll see this hanging bridge. It's pretty high and if you're scared of heights, I suggest you don't look down while walking. Each step you take causes the bridge to move, but it's really not that terrifying for first timers and fearful of heights, so don't worry.

After the bridge, you'll have to walk a little more and then when you get there, you'll see this.

Cost of this trip:
I can't really remember how much it was, but I'm sure it was less than P50 to get there from the City. However, you've got to pay your guides if ever you have.

Entrance fee:
We didn't pay because there was no caretaker around but one of the 3 kids said it was supposed to be P30.

To get back to the city, you just get back to the main road, to take a tricycle that goes to the City.
