Bonbon Falls is another impressive beauty located in the Municipality of Samboan, Cebu. The waterfalls has not been disturbed by commercial development yet so the beautiful natural surroundings of trees and lush greenery has been preserved.
The Bonbon Falls is also called the Triple Drop Falls because of the three drops of the falls that are side by side with each other and their thin water flows. The waterfalls is not that high so you can climb directly up the peak by climbing the side of the falls.
Some of the stones in the side of the falls have been carved up into stair-like crevices that you can step on as you climb to the top. Just be careful that you do not lose your balance when you climb up as the rocks are somewhat steep and slippery due to the flowing waters. There are also some small caves along the sides of the waterfalls.
The trek to the top can take up to 15 minutes while going down can take up to 10 minutes. If you are the adventurous type, the waterfalls can also be an ideal venue for rappelling and canyonning from the top going to the bottom.
