You must take a two-hour ride via Ceres Bus from Cebu South Bus Terminal. Inform the driver first to drop you off at Kawasan Waterfalls jump off point. Before going to Badian, you will pass by the City of Carcar, Municipality of Barili and Dumanjug.

Once you arrived, you need to hike for at least 1.5KM of their semi concreted road to reach the waterfalls. A church on the left side serves as the landmark going to the place. There is an available parking area in front of the church for your convenience. Locals also put up some shops at the side of the road so you can shop for souvenir items.
