One of the most exciting activities to do when visiting South Cotabato is to experience the Lake Sebu 7 Falls and try the highest zip line in Southeast Asia. The majestic 7 cascading falls are located at Barangay Lake Seloton.

My recent visit in Lake Sebu was part of the activity which was organized by the Tourism Department of South Cotabato. I was so privileged to have been invited to be the lone travel blogger outside the Mindanao Region to join the group.


I was a bit sleepy that day because of the fun bonding activity we had the night before with other bloggers and the Tourism Executives of South Cotabato.

That was quite early when we arrived at the place so there were not many visitors yet. Just like in some other tourist spots, shops selling souvenirs can also be found at the place.


We headed first at the first waterfalls. The first Falls, which they called Hikong Alo is the most accessible and I should say the widest. But don’t take my word for it, I just saw the other 6 Falls from afar.


At the first Falls is a small stall selling some souvenir stuff and at the same time renting out T’boli Traditional Costumes for only PHP 50.00.  Jonallier Mana-ay Perez, a Director of the Mindanao Tourism Council of Mindanao told me that it would be nice if I can have my photo for this post wearing the traditional attire. The truth is, I was only waiting for someone to push me to do such as I might hamper our schedule for the day. Upon seeing that I was garbed in T’boli Costume while having my photos taken, other participants started to follow me. Thanks to  Zhaun Barry Agabe, Tourism Officer of South Cotabato for taking care of all the rentals for us.


After our photo op, we headed to the Zipline area, a must-try adventure at Lake Sebu 7 Falls. The zip line is the only way to see the other falls as others are not accessible or easy to reach. The Zipline at Lake Sebu is one of the cheapest Zipline treats I ever experienced. For only PhP 250, one can already have the loudest scream of their life. The zip line at Lake Sebu 7 Falls is claimed to be the highest zip line in Southeast Asia offering a spectacular view of the Falls and of lush greeneries.

Other Falls at Lake Sebu are named s follows:  Falls 2: Hikong Bente;  Falls 3: Hikong B’Lebel; Falls 4: Hikong Lowig; Falls 5: Hikong Ukol; Falls 6: Hikong K’Fo-I; Falls 7: Hikong Tonok



If you are visiting Lake Sebu and would try the zip line for the first time, I would like to share with you some tips for the best zip line experience

  1. Listen very carefully and follow all the instructions.
  2. Zip lining at Lake Sebu can be done solo, with a partner, or even by three. If you think having a companion will give you more confidence, then, by all means, go with a partner. Of course, if you are traveling with your special someone, it is already given that you will go together.
  3. For travel bloggers like me, you need to be ready with your action camera. Since you will be seeing the falls from the top, it would be best, in my opinion, to do it solo. If you don’t have an action camera, your cell phone attached properly to a reliable selfie stick will just be fine. Make sure to attach the stick to your wrist. Other bloggers bring their DSLRs with them attached to their necks. You can do this at your own risk. But I will never do this myself as there is a tendency to have some impact during your landing and you might not handle the camera well.
  4. If you don’t have a camera, just be ready to pay for PHP 150 for a CD with some shots of yourself while doing the zip line.
  5. Wear proper attire. Of course, you will not go zip lining with your shirts on (for females). Don’t wear slippers as they may fall.

This summer would be the perfect time to visit Lake Sebu 7 Falls. For more information about the place, you may read my other posts:
