Climbing the so owned Datu Sicao Falls at Tamayong Calinan, Davao City

datu sicao falls davao city

Datu Sicao Falls is located at Datu Sicao, Purok 6, Tamayong, Calinan, Davao City. Datu Sicao Falls is often visited during holy week. Some mountaineers considered it as a minor climb but for me, I will considered this as major climb. :D It's because, I never been to a highest mountain before. As I succesfully reached the peak of Datu Sicao, I am confident to try climbing Mt. Apo very soon!

 This is a perfect start to those who want to try out before joining major climb. The trek was kinda easy and there are also difficulty level 3 trails. You need to have great endurance to be able to reach the falls.

But first you must stop at Lantaw Apo where you need to be registered. They do this so that they will have record of people who enter that place. Start again trekking and you will experience hours of mountain climbing and an hour of river trekking while at the end, a cold and lots of beautiful falls awaits you to enjoy.

How To Get There:

Take a taxi ride to Bangkerohan Terminal for Calinan and then take a bus ride. Tell the "kondoktor" to drop you at the Buyzone Store, Calinan. When you are there, talk to someone and ask where is the terminal going to Tamayong Purok 6, it is at about 100 meters from the point you where drop off.

Take a ride, it is usually a jeep, and then stop at the Tamayong Purok 6. When you are there, register to their barangay and then start climbing. Just follow the trail going to Datu Sicao area. When you reach Datu Sicao area, usually climbers rest there for the night and then go to the Sicao falls early the next morning.

Purok 6 to Datu Sicao area usually takes at about 5 hours of climbing and then Datu Sicao camping area to Sicao falls at about 3 hours (1.5 hours of it is river trekking).
