Cagnituan Falls and Lagoon are just within the Capital City of Maasin, it is one of the most visited nature sites because of its twin experience, the cave with its subterranean river and the inviting pool of the water falls.

The Guinsohotan Cave is a large subterranean cave, 15 km from the city center and 276 meters above sea level. Those who do enter the cave by wading or swimming …

can find small “in-cave” waterfalls, bats and impressive rock formations.

The water coming out of Guinsuhotan Cave flows down in cascades to form a natural lagoon, Cagnituan Lagoon, frequently visited by bathers and patrons of cool therapeutic treatment. These two sights, which belong more or less together, are placed in Barangay Cagnituan and can be reached from Barangay Maria Clara by using a Habal-habal.

The last part of the way is a walking part: you pass by small groups of houses, fields and palms. In the background there are the mountains covered by large vegetation.  Read More:  https://greedypeg.org/southern-leyte/Cagnituan-Falls-and-Lagoon.html
