It is advisable to visit Kawasan Falls during summer to fully enjoy its cold waters. A guide is also recommended for first time visitors or people who have no sense of direction to avoid getting lost when going to the place. Since the path towards the waterfalls has many twists and turns.

Note: As of April 2024, the access for the place is limited to the main level 1 only.
