ARRIVING AT INGKUMHAN FALLS
When you arrive at Ingkumhan Falls you’ll come to a small parking lot and a ticket office where you’ll have to pay for the entrance fee.
From here, follow the signs along the concrete path to get down to the falls. It is an easy hike that takes no more than 10 minutes to reach the bottom.
On the way down, I passed a few locals who stopped me for a chat and to practice their English. They were super friendly and they insisted I took a photo of them, so I did. Got to love these social interactions with the locals in the Philippines!
As we reached the bottom of the stairs, Ingkumhan Falls revealed itself and I could not wait to run and jump into the natural-made swimming pool.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT INGKUMHAN FALLS
The main set of falls features a flow of water that stretches across a limestone rockface around 10 meters wide and approximately 8 meters tall. The water fills a huge natural-pool that reminded me of blue Gatorade which I was almost tempted to drink.

There is a rope swing that can be used about halfway up the falls, so you will have to climb up the rock face to reach it. Surprisingly the surface of the rock isn’t that slippery and the depth of the pool is around 3 to 4 meters deep so you won’t need to worry about hitting the bottom.
I always like to make sure the landing is clear of debris and large rocks before doing any cliff jumping so I recommend you do the same.
There is also a 5-meter cliff jump that can be found on the left-hand side of the falls that is a lot of fun!
There are plenty of seating areas and sheltered huts around the edges of Ingkumhan Falls to perch up for a while and enjoy this incredible Bohol attraction.
I visited Ingkumhan Falls Bohol on a Sunday and it was very busy with locals and other tourists. Try and time your visit for a weekday if you want to enjoy Ingkumhan Falls without the crowds.
