Kinahugan Falls is one of the most off-the-beaten-path waterfalls in Bohol. A short five-minute hike along a jungle trail to Kinahugan Falls is a worthy adventure on your next trip to Bohol island in the Philippines.

WHERE IS KINAHUGAN FALLS 

Kinahugan Falls, also spelt Kinahulugan Falls, is located in Jagna on Bohol island. 

Kinahulugan Falls is best visited from Anda town in East Bohol which is a 37km drive with a journey time of 50 minutes.

If you are staying in the main tourist area of Panglao, Kinahugan Falls is a 75km drive that takes approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.

HOW TO GET TO KINAHULUGAN FALLS

The best way to reach Kinahugan Waterfall is to rent a scooter in Anda and make the drive south-west to Jagna.

There are limited scooter rental stores located in Anda but I know of one place where you can get your hands on some wheels for around 500 pesos per day. His name is Joey and he can be contacted by phone on +639123982873 or Facebook Bernaldez Joey.

KINAHUGAN FALLS ENTRANCE FEE

When I visited Kinahugan Falls in the low season (September) I didn’t pay an entrance fee nor did I see a ticketing office.

My guess is that because Kinahugan Falls is not yet a popular Bohol tourist spot they haven’t bothered to set up a payment booth at the entrance to this waterfall.

There is however a little snack shop at the entrance to Kinahulugan Falls which is run by a friendly local family if you need to stock up on water or snacks before heading down.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT KINAHUGAN FALLS

The trek to Kinahugan Falls from the parking lot takes no more than five minutes down a narrow dirt trail that can be quite slippery so take your time through this section.

When you reach the bottom of the trail it opens up to a flat plateau surrounded by coconut palms and a river runs down one side of the valley.

We caught our first glimpse of Kinahugan Waterfall from here and we followed the trail up some large tree roots that act as stairs. This leads to a viewing platform at the top which was covered in vibrant foliage from the canopy above.

There are actually two sets of falls at Kinahugan Waterfall boasting mass volumes of water gushing down a rock face into the river below.

Kinahugan Falls isn’t the most ideal spot for a swim as there is quite a lot of water moving around and it did look quite dangerous to be fair.

The day I visited Kinahiugan Falls there was heavy rain the night before so, unfortunately, the water was quite brown and not that attractive. But hey, that’s just mother nature.

This location is purely for marveling at and enjoying the scenic jungle that surrounds Kinahugan Falls.
