The southern town of Barili is around 60 kilometers away from Cebu City. It is home to the Sayaw Beach and Bolocboloc Natural Spring Pool. But, one of the more popular places to visit in the town is the Molave Milk Station where you can drink fresh cow or carabao’s milk. The town was named after the balili grass, which is abundant in the area.
The Mantayupan Falls is one of the tourist attractions of the town of Barili. Even though the area was developed for tourism, it still maintains much of its rugged ambiance. It is one of the tallest waterfalls in the province. The waterfalls has two levels and is the source of water for the rice paddies of some barangays in the town. The first level is the tallest with a height of around 96 meters. On the other hand, the second level is only 14 meters high.
To reach the Mantayupan Falls, you should get on a bus headed for the town of Barili at the Cebu South Bus Terminal. Once you reach the town proper, you can hop on a motorcycle for hire to the waterfalls. Trekking from the entrance to the waterfalls will be an experience in itself since you will see how the natural environment was maintained even though it was already developed.
