From the community road there is a signage on where the trail starts. There's an footpath trail getting to Lugnason Falls so you won't have to worry getting lost, and just before you reach the falls, you find another signage back-dropped by the trees. But if you must, you can ask a local, or children (on days without classes) from the community to help you find your way.

Lugnason Falls is a cluster of limestone rocks that is a wide opening drop from a stream uphill. The landing area when you get to see the falls is elevated, and you need to get down on a steep man-made steps to reach the water basin. On that elevation though, are several benches for family to gather, and parents to watch the young ones enjoy their swim.

The water basin is not that deep, roughly around 5ft during our visit. Local kids would climb on the slippery rocks on the waterfall facade, and jump into the water basin. A host's family friend accompanied us, and he told us that the community would remove sediments from the pool basin when water overflows, or the water basin becomes to shallow for swimming.

There is another small pool by the side of the water basin where you can try swimming as well. It is shallow, but on certain months when there are less visitors. Debris can accumulate on the lower part of this area.

Despite the gloomy early morning weather, we had fun still. Though it was not smart to set the camera on timer mode, and swim across the other side for a group shot. LOL! Needless to say, we never had a decent group shot from this early morning walk, and swim.


+ You can hire a jeepney if you're travelling in a group, or hire a habal-habal or motor. You can also rent a motorcycle for your travel duration at Siquijor City if you know how to drive.
+ If you're renting a motorcycle, please be careful in driving, the road can be steep, and/or rough, and not cemented.
+ If is best to drive around in daylight. The whole island has a rotating curtailment schedule, and you might drive through communities without street light because of that.
+ You need to bring your provisions, there's no store when you start off on the trail.
+ Please tend after yourselves, and bring your trash with you when you leave the area, and have them properly disposed of.
