Scaling up and down the falls is a test to your physical endurance. About 500 winding steps make you drop or stop. Careful. Others were known to have had troubled breathing spells; worse, have fainted by the sheer exhaustion. But the reward is great-a lovely cathedral Falls-very inviting for raft ride or skinny dip. Test your endurance and fitness-take this... More

This place is just one out of the 18 majestic waterfalls in Iligan City. I visited the place a lot but I still find it amazing. You need to go down around two hundred breathtaking steps and release all your stress with the soothing aura of the place. A must see place! 👍

Our visit to "Tinago" falls was actually unplanned. What we had in our itinerary that day was the Maria Cristina Falls and the Macapagal Ancestral House, but when we tried Maria Cristina Falls at 7 A.M., we were told by the security guards that the place will still be open to public only at 9 A.M. Not to waste precious... More

Tinago Falls is a 20min ride out of town, you take a dirt road through a village to the carpark, and then have a very steep trek down 400 odd stairs to get to the bottom of the falls but it is well worth the effort. The falls themselves are around 50m high and flow into a large pool that... More

This is my all time favorite! Worth the hard work in trekking down the steps. I love this place and this is where I will retire. There are fee's lately which unfortunately I cannot provide the details. I go there for free by virtue of being local and where I spend half of my life.

This is located in deep ravine that is why it is called "Tinago" falls or hidden. You have to take 500 spiraling steps to see the beautiful falls. The cold water lagoon changes in blue and green color. Going there in a weekdays is the best so you can own the paradise. Most of the people came to see and... More

When my mother-in-law made plans for us to visit, I told my wife I had a certain expectation on visiting the Philippines. I wasn't necessarily prepared for much of what I saw, but during our visit to Tinago I encountered the closest distillation of what I pictured in my mind. Tinago represents the lush natural beauty combined with the power... More

One of the most beautiful falls I've experienced! We went with a big group during the "off" season. So we almost had the area to ourselves with a few of the friendly locals. This is truly a gem but I kept thinking they should call it the "hidden falls with many steps" It is so worth the hike! we hired... More

Very beautiful. Bring your swimming trucks and your camera. Water is very refreshing. My only warning is it's at least 500 steps down a very steep hill.
