The falls derived its name from species of buffalo which can only be found in Oriental Mindoro among the country endangered species as it is hunted by the people who are after its meat.There are a series of small waterfalls that end in the final drop into the cool water of the pool at the bottom of the Tamaraw Falls. The water at first is quite cool, but extremely refreshing once you get over the initial sudden shock, it is not that the water is so cold, but rather the air temperature is so high that makes such a contrasting difference.

There is a picnic area and a larger rock pool for swimming, a small fee is charged to enter the picnic area. The larger rock pool is man made and does look like it has seen better days, it is a little bit tired.
