Katibawasan Falls is one of the treasured gifts nature has blessed the island of Camiguin according to the locals, located at the foot of Mt. Timpoong, Barangay Upper Pandan, approx. 5 km (3.1 mi) southeast of Municipality of Mambajao, the Falls cascades 250 ft (76 m) down to a pool surrounded by orchids and ferns. An invigorating dip on the pool is popular especially on warmer days and several hiking trails are within the park. The falls rushes down into its green pool that is really refreshing for a good swim. Tourist are welcome to swim. It is an ideal place to cool off during hot and humid days. There is however an entrance fee of 30 pesos per person since the falls is maintained by the province. Giant ferns decorate the surrounding land, carpeting the spaces and huge trees and dropping vines provides the backdrop the falls. In illonggo dialect the word "Katibawasan" means: "To have overcome".
