On clear days, one can cross the river on a raft and even bathe under the thin flow of the falls revealing the beautiful rock formation underneath. Most people are able to see the falls that way. But on rainy days, the waters are raging, thus earning the nickname, the Niagara Falls of the Philippines. It was like that when we went to visit in April 2010 so all we could do was stand on the rocky side of the falls where the pool was not too deep and have the waters caress our backs.
Bislig City is approximately 217.6 km. from Davao City and will take around 2 hours and 57 minutes to get there by land.

|If you get to this place that means you're lost! Go back! You will find the road leading to Tinuy-an Falls on the right side of the main highway.|
|The reservoir of PICOP.|
|Some landmarks along the way.|
|The falls can be seen by going through those stairs on the right.|
|Boats to take guests across if they want to.|
|But when we went there, it rained the previous night so the water really fell like the Niagara Falls. We couldn't get across the river.|
|The first tier.|
|You need to climb this to get to the second tier.|
|The raging second tier.|
|This is where most people sit to feel the falling water.|
|Just like what they did! Refreshing!|
|Uhhhrmmmm...they were not contented in just sitting on the second tier, they wanted to go up some more.|
|That's the third tier. Yeah!|
|This view of the second tier can only be seen from the upper tier. Whoa! Raging Tinuy-an indeed!|
Tara na sa Tinuy-an!
