Mantayupan Falls in Barili, Cebu, Philippines.

It was a holiday in the Philippines last August 05, 2009 and the following day, August 06, 2009 was a holiday for the Cebu province.

Our group at South Cebu Church have came up an idea to spend the day of August 05, 2009 in Barili, Cebu, Philippines. Barili is located 61 kms southwest of Cebu City. From our end, which is Minglanilla, Cebu, it was an hour of travel.

We have never been in Barili before; so for us, it would be a great adventure. We headed for Barili the night before at 8:30 in the evening. We reached to our first stop by 10:00 in the evening and spent the night there. At 8;30 in the morning, we left the place and routed our way to my friend’s resthouse and have our lunch there. By 12:30 in the afternoon, we left for Mantayupan Falls.

I have never seen in my liftime a real falls other than the pictures in the books, postcards or even in th net. So, I am pretty excited to see Mantayupan Falls.

Mantayupan Falls is located in Barangay Campangga, Barili, Cebu. It is one of Barili’s jewel and one of the highest falls in Cebu. Since few people have discovered it, still it is well-preserved and uncommercialized.

Entrance to Mantayupan Falls is at Php 10.00 per head; parking fee is Php 20.00 for car and Php 10.00 for motorcycle. Prices are very much affordable.

Mantayupan Falls is much higher in terms of heights than the well known Kawasan Falls and even looks more majestic. Before reaching to Mantayupan Falls you will pass to a beautiful paved walkway and the walk is not as long as in Kawasan Falls.

Mantayupan Falls is use to generate electricity to local residents and being used to irrigate the farm fields nearby. It was not open to the public until recently that still there are few people who have just discovered it.

The water is very cold but very refreshing. It so amazing to watch closely the falling of the water from above.

When you come to Barili, Cebu, Philippines, do not forget to include in your itinerary to spend time watching closely the majestic and awesome Mantayupan Falls.
