Cebu Canyoneering and Kawasan Falls

Aug 21, 2017 by

I’m a helpless chicken when it comes to jumping off cliffs or boulders or falls. My friends failed to make me jump in Tibiao Antique. They also failed to make me jump in Siquijor (at the public beach jump-off point) and the plan of doing Ariel’s Point in Boracay miserably failed coz I’m a refusing kill-joy kind of a friend.

But the Badian Canyoneering adventure posed a different kind of challenge. Should I sign up, there’s no other way but to do what Badian’s do:

JUMP.

And I realized that courage is really about triumphing over your fear, coz fear will never go away. And once I took the jump, I realized too that my fear of jumping was extremely overrated. The jump + the scream + the astral travel + imagining death + impact of water contact = only amounted to 3.8 seconds. Overrated, I know. But thanks to Kathy for knowing which buttons to push for me to go for the kill. All she did was yelled at me and I didn’t have much choice but to jump.

Badian Canyoneering and the Kawasan Falls adventure is a 4-hour canyoneering experience off the Southern tip of Cebu. This magnificent natural gem offers an adventure of a lifetime that will test your endurance, and your ultimate sense of adventure in conquering your fear of heights with the numerous leaps over rocks, and falls, and cliffs and to battle your way out of the rushing water current. Of course, it is safe. You are required to go with a canyoneering guide who will make sure you do it safely. Proper safety suits will also be required, so all you need would be your commitment to the seemingly treacherous trek.

I came out alive of it and damn, I felt so proud of myself. All those jumps are really quite liberating. Just scream your lungs out and all will be well.

Other than jumps, there are also slides.

The Kawasan Falls back massage was fun but it can get a bit hard too! The water current was too strong!
