I don’t know if there is a fee to enter Tinago Falls Leisure Park to see the hidden falls because when I went here with Rogelio, my habal-habal driver, there were no guard on duty at the office.
Upon entering the gate of the park, you need to walk along the concrete spiral staircase to reach the covered viewing area and the falls itself.
Tinago falls is around 15-foot high with clear and cold blue water cascading into its pool before flowing down the river. I’m not sure, but looking at Google Maps, it looks like the water going to Tinago Falls is coming either from Mount Gumansan or Mount Camalabagoan.

The fall’s name came from the Filipino word tinago, which means “hidden,” as the falls being hidden in a ravine.
How to go to Tinago Falls
You won’t find a jeepney or a taxicab in Biliran. From Naval, ride a habal-habal. You have to rent since Tinago Falls is around 30 minutes away from the capital municipality. Fare varies depending on your haggling skills. When I went here, I rented a habal-habal for Php 700, inclusive of gas, from 6am to 4pm.
