Siok Falls and River Trekking Adventure in Koronadal City

Less than 11 kilometers away from the city proper and located along the Roxas Mountain Range, Sitio Siok in Barangay Mabini where the 40-ft high Siok Falls can be found is now the newest eco-tourism destination and river trekking site in Koronadal and in the province of  South Cotabato.

The river trekking adventure site was formally launched last Tuesday October 2, 2012  attended by city officials and employees headed by Mayor Peter Miguel, the land owners in Sitio Siok (pronounced si-ohk), members of the media and some nature enthusiasts and adventure tourists. Take a look at some of the pictures as South Cotabato News joined the river trekking adventure and the launching of Siok Falls as an eco-tourism site in the City of Koronadal.
Clear waters, huge rocks. River trekking adventure in Siok at it's best.
Be ready and enjoy getting wet.
Kawa Falls. 
Kawa Falls. Half-way to Siok Falls is a small cascade that resembles a huge cauldron or Kawa in local dialect. Climbing through the big rock formations in Kawa Falls is an option to be able to reach the majestic Siok Falls.

Get ready for more rocks in different sizes (some are pointed) as you river trek to Siok Falls.
Huge tree roots above grounds and rocks can also be seen on the way to Siok Falls.
Sight-seeing. Appreciate mother nature.
And finally after less than two hours of river trekking passing through and scaling huge rock formations, getting wet and sight-seeing.. the 40-feet high Siok Falls.
Koronadal City's hidden treasure.

The launching of Siok as an eco-tourism destination is part of Koronadal City's celebration of it's 12th Charter Anniversary and in support to Department of Tourism's "It's More Fun in the Philippines" campaign. 

A tricycle or habal-habal route bound for Sitio Siok coming from the city proper will soon be implemented by the city LGU. By now, dropping by at the tourism office at the New Koronadal City Hall is advised for those interested in experiencing the river trekking adventure to Siok Falls.
