Diwan, Dipolog City


Just 25 kilometers away from the city proper, you will see the magnificent beauty of Dipolog through the famous Sungkilaw Falls.

Sungkilaw Falls is a 25 feet high waterfalls that is situated in Sitio Virginia, Barangay Diwan, the farthest Barangay of the City of Dipolog. Endowed with true beauty of nature, visitors and tourists would surely love. The natural blessing is positioned in the midst of overgrown forest and getting near the falls will need an adventurous trekking towards approximately 400 descending steps along verdant trees, flora and fauna.

Getting to Sungkilaw Falls would take a 40 minute travel from the City proper. A long bus ride, plus a tricycle ride to the waterFalls. The trip would be very invigorating, that it gives a tremendous feeling of excitement to behold the splendid beauty of Sungkilaw Falls.

If one would like to reach the peak of the falls, one must have the vast walk towards the rugged peak wherein you can oversee the bottom of which the amazing river is located. However, the Government had provided safety trails in order for the visitors be guided and aided during the walk going to the forest’s terrain.

Sungkilaw Falls is located near the OISCA ( Organization for Industrial, Spiritual and Cultural Advancement) forest park which the Japanese Government started to develop as their project for Dipolog. A perfect getaway for the visitors to experience and enjoy some of the most challenging outdoor sports and adventures such as rappelling, Tyrolean Traverse, canoeing and swimming.

The area also provides basic amenities like wide parking area, entrance hall, mushroom-shaped picnic stalls, showers and comfort rooms. A mineral Spring also spouts near the swimming area wherein the water tastes is salty and which the locals believed to have healing characteristics.

The alluring beauty of Sungkilaw falls and its exciting package of adventure made its way to be featured in “Weekend Getaway” of GMA 7 hosted by Drew Arellano in 2011.

A true natural beauty that will surely hooked visitors and tourists. A perfect destination for friends and families to enjoy,-- Sungkilaw Falls.

    I’ve been there once. It was for our photography subject. It was a tiring drive from Dipolog but as you arrive and witness the falls, you will surely be awed by its natural beauty. Hopefully the government could develop the road going to the site, so that it will be accessible and can be enjoyed by everyone.
