A newly discovered waterfall and cave in Siquijor proves that we should never stop exploring. Kawasan Falls is situated in Lazi town en route to Brgy. Cangclaran, just a nearby attraction to one of the most visited Cambugahay waterfalls.
An intersection route will take you to Brgy. Cangclaran and Cambugahay where a visible sign is placed as a guiding sign towards Kawasan, then drove uphill for less than 5 minutes.
As soon as I reached Brgy. Cangclaran, I was welcomed by the residents and a local guide. Because I don’t know where it was, I approached a young man to lead my way. 10 pesos was levied for each visitor for the parking fee.
As I’ve seen in their log book, I was one of the few visitors. The only way to access the new waterfall is to descend into a hill with newly established track of around 200 steps.
Upon reaching the bottom, immediately the waters of Kawasan greeted me with a hue of color blue sharing a similar attribute to that of Cambugahay. The location is concealed chiefly of trees and wild plants.
The stillness of the environment is accompanied with bird sounds and the flowing waters. There were no other visitors that time except myself and four other local guides. The entrance to the cave is located beneath the waterfall, which I opted not to go inside, for safety reasons, there were no gears provided, the distance of the cave has not been mapped and so I find it more dangerous.
It was just a quick side trip and I am always grateful every time I see a waterfall, whether of towering height and small. When visiting Siquijor, don’t miss on discovering the hidden falls of Kawasan.
