Cebu City | Kan-irag Falls–Mt. Kan-irag Itinerary

Budlaan Falls, Cebu City

I’ve received several inquiries on how to go to Kan-irag | Kabang
Budlaan | Kainsing Falls (I know right, even the locals have varied names for the waterfall.  The community before and after the main falls have different names for it.

Although I was initially reluctant in providing instructives, perhaps it is for the greater good. Or not. Because personally, my trips do not have itineraries at all. I could say that we did not really follow the itineraries below. But this guide might work for those who have not been to these places. Or better yet, approach a local community of mountain climbers to guide you.

Mt Kan-irag Cebu City

Portrait of Ariel Montuerto | +63 922 764 9935 Aye’s family, as we call him, is one of the victims of the recent fire that razed Mandaue. So, maybe it is appropriate to pay his guiding, P500.00 at the least. I can assure you though that he is the most responsible guide you can find out there. He is funny (and loud)! And he spoils his guests to bets.

-1 L water (campsite use)

-packed lunch

-waterproofing
-raincoat
-personal kit
-toiletries
-extra clothes (for those who plan to swim)
-jacket/bonnet/extra socks

Expenses

– Php200.00 (fares, buffer for your own necessities)
– 25 pesos Habal2x from Sunny Hills to Baogo
– 40-50 pesos ride from Ayala Heights to JY
– 125 pesos buffer

If there is an instructive I’m willing to impart—the best travels are unplanned and itinerary-less.

Please don’t leave your trash. Follow the principle LEAVE NO TRACE to heart. During our recent trek, we ended up bringing down someone else’s trash. Be a responsible and an educated trekker.

  5. someone says:

    Is it safe to do the trekking without a guide for first timer?

  6. lad says:

    This is an awesome trek 🙂 Like! Do you know someone that woud be a guide for a 2 day trek? And how much does it cost? My friends are planning for a trek this saturday and this is just they wanted.Thanks.

    • Hi there, Iad! In the photo, the younger/buff guy is the “muscle” behind our treks in Sirao Peak. His name is Ariel Montuerto. It is really against the principles of EWIT to get money from the guests. But Aye’s family, as we call him, is one of the victims of the recent fire that razed Mandaue. So, maybe it is appropriate to pay his guiding, P500.00 at the least. I can assure you though that he is the most responsible guide you can find out there. He is funny (and loud)! And he spoils his guests to bets.

      Here is his number: +63 922 764 9935 Do let him know that you get his number from Jona.

    For this time, is Aye still available for guide?
