T'DAAN KINI FALLS: Lake Sebu's Newest Attraction


If there is one thing cheerless to hear about the Seven falls of Lake Sebu, that is swimming and bathing is not allowed there. The water source of the Seven Falls comes from the three lakes of this town. These three lakes are the main sources of livelihood of the town – the tilapia culture. Numerous fish pens and fish cages are built everywhere and synthetic fish feeds are generally used for growing. Hence, for health reasons especially for the skin, swimming and bathing at the Seven Falls is not encouraged.
With that fact, the Lake SebuTourism Council opens the door to discover and experience yet another must-see natural attraction in the town, the T’daan Kini Falls.
T’daan Kini Falls is situated at Barangay Lamlahak. About 10 minutes drive from the town proper; we proceeded to Sitio Talibu, the jump off site going to T’daan Kini Falls.  To get to the falls, it requires a 45-minute trek passing through green ricefields, two flowing cold streams, green valleys and hills and other picturesque sceneries that made our trek truly stimulating.
  
Along the way, we passed by a T’boli community making wood carvings and bead accessories as souvenir items sold at a very low price. Making of wood and bead crafts becomes an important industry in Lake Sebu following the mass tourism influx in the town.
Finally reaching the T’daan Kini Falls, a cold atmosphere surrounding the whole place immediately embraced us. T’daan Kini Falls is a two-tiered series of cascading cold spring waters. It is literally cold. The place is actually just opened for visitors like us thus virgin forests and rare floras abound the whole area. Huge trees are everywhere. Wild flowers are plenty. Chirping birds abounds it. Everything is perfectly untouched. And since it is virgin, one can drink the spring waters of T’daan Kini Falls.
Braving the coldness of the waters, my friends didn’t waste time bathing and swimming at T’daan Kini. The waters were just simply so irresistible. Bathing there is like revitalizing oneself from all types of stress and anxieties. Definitely worth the long trek.
 
After luxuriating ourselves with powers of waters at T’daan Kini Falls, we all felt triumphant and honored because we were told that we are among the first batches of group of tourists to visit this genuinely pride of Lake Sebu. It was a worthy experience. After our scrumptious lunch courtesy of Lake Sebu Tourism Council, we headed back to Sitio Talibu.
 
Going back, we passed by the T’boli Community to buy some souvenir items we can bring home as our remembrance from our Lake Sebu Tour.
Having experience that, I realized that Lake Sebu is not just the Three Lakes there is or the Seven Falls they have. Lake Sebu has T’daan Kini Falls that will surely captivate every nature lovers and outdoor goers seeking true Nature’s Bliss. I just hope that in spite the fast-paced tourism influx of Lake Sebu, they can still protect and preserve the natural beauty of T’daan Kini and other natural attractions of this mystical town.
