LAGAAN FALLS ENTRANCE FEE
The Lagaan Falls entrance fee is 30 pesos and parking is free.
At the entrance, local guides will offer to take you down to the falls but this is not necessary as the trail is clearly marked. However, I visited these falls on my own and decided to take a guide for good company and tipped him 50 pesos at the end.
ARRIVING AT LAGAAN FALLS
When you arrive at the pin location of Lagaan Falls Siquijor, there is a sheltered parking area where you can safely leave your scooter.
There is a small tour desk at the entrance to Lagaan Waterfall where you’ll first have to pay the entrance fee and sign your name and nationality in a book before heading down the trailhead to this epic Siquijor waterfall.
From here, it takes around 15-minutes to walk along a dirt trail underneath a dense rainforest canopy to reach Lagaan Falls.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SIQUIJOR LAGAAN FALLS
The first level of Lagaan Falls features a large natural swimming hole and with rope swings, small caves, rock jumps and a wide set of falls. It’s an adventurer’s playground and a slightly similar set up to Cambugahay Falls.
On a nice day, it’s a great spot to hang out and go swimming under the falls to cool off and swinging from the rope swing is a lot of fun too!
When I visited, I saw a local guy sliding down a natural rock slide into the catch basin of the falls. I couldn’t resist giving this a go myself!
The lush jungle that surrounds Lagaan Falls is what makes this place so tranquil and it’s definitely one of my favorite Siquijor tourist spots to hang out. See these photos for proof!
