Tinago Falls is well-known in Iligan City and it must not be missed when in town. It is just a perfect setting if you want to enjoy nature and a little bit of swimming! Although you have to go down a long flight of stairs and go back up again afterwards, it was all worth it!

The trek to these falls is well worth the effort as the falls are spectacular and the highlight is a raft ride on a rope pulley raft (small charge only) which takes you under the waterfall for a true Maid of the Mist experience, the falls are very high so the volume of water coming down can be considerable, life...

Tinago Falls in Iligan City is just stunningly beautiful. Tinago in english means "Hidden". When you get there you will know why they called it Tinago or Hidden Falls. Prepare your muscles and feet for you are about to walk by a stairway (300+ steps back and forth) to see the Tinago Falls. When you see the nature and the... More

Took my wife, teen-age daughter, and several of our Philippine family here July 2013. This is a must see but is not for the faint at heart (heart condition) and I personally would not advise taking young children (<8 yr) as they would not appreciate the climb up or down. Over 400 steps down the side of the mountain to... More

Our experience in Tinago falls is what made our visit in Iligan worth the while. While Ma Christina Falls has its own majestic view and rich in history, but you cant only view it from a platform. Tinago falls has the real experience of bathing under the falls and swam thru it. This is probably the best waterfall experience I... More

Tinago Falls is one of the best waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. We rode the makeshift raft all the way near the mighty waterfall. You can't miss this. Going there is fairly easy too.

Tinago Falls stand to its name having been located in a very remote area in Iligan City, some 7 Km of rough road from Maria Cristina Falls. Motorcycle ride costs 150 pesos per person two-way from Maria Cristina. Local tour guides are available to get you there. Trekking a trail past a coconut plantation leads you to a private property...

Went there last July with family and friends. It was raining but no big deal. The falls is simply beautiful! No complaints 'bout the attraction. We stayed there for about 3-4 hours and had picnic lunch. The stairs going down is no problem, its the going up that's the challenge. I think I counted 320++ steps. The stairs itself are... More

Road on the way there is dilapidated, we got lost looking for it. Once we found our way, the View was fantastic. The downside: No restrooms or changing rooms if you want to take a bath. No lifeguard too. No safety officer. No trash cans.
