It is a three-tier waterfalls with a combined height of approximately 450 feet (in the photo is the lowest tier). It stands majestically in the midst of mostly untouched jungles of Datagan and Dagum in Bayog, Zamboanga del Sur, making Lupisan Falls' waters potable.

As of the moment, a river trail is the fastest way to the falls from the nearest settlement, which involves hopping over mossy rocks and crawling underneath misty woodland.

Truly, with its might, power and beauty, Lupisan Falls will put every beholder in complete awe and admiration. It can easily snatch the title as the highest, most majestic and most promising waterfall in this part of the country. (Writing credits to  Alvin Rex M. Lucero.)
