Aguinid is just one of the 5 popular waterfalls in Samboan. Aguinid is located in Barangay Tangbo, a green and farming area of the municipality.
Aguinid Falls is a five-tier waterfalls, a feature that can easily amuse or attract visitors. You can see that each tier is unique and this feature makes it truly unique and incomparable with other falls in the area.
However, you need to exert some efforts to climb some rock walls in order to see the tiers themselves. But, it’s alright if you stick only to one of the tiers and not challenge yourself to reach the other tiers.
The first tier of Aguinid is around 10 meters high and has about 5 feet deep water at its base where you can swim in and enjoy its refreshing effect. (Hmm, not that very high, huh?).
From this tier you can reach the second by walking for about 5 minutes. The third tier can be reached in another five minutes through the rock walls of the second tier. The fourth tier has the highest height (about 30 meters—that’s high enough!), which is about ten minutes’ walk from the third tier.
Going from one tier to other tiers is not that easy since you need to be fit enough to climb the limestone walls, which are quite slippery hence dangerous. For that reason, most visitors prefer to stay only close to the first two tiers of Aguinid.
The water falling from Aguinid runs for over two kilometers from its base and will converge creating what we call “Tangbo River” of Samboan.
