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.

My boyfriend and I arrived at Laguindingan Airport (Cagayan De Oro) from Manila around 7AM. Bear in mind that you have to communicate with the drivers, barkers, and locals for you to know where to go. We were able to get to the Falls just by asking questions, so don't hesitate as the locals are very nice. I only had... More

The trek down is not that easy, you have been warned, so it's harder on the way up. But when you see the falls, it is breathtaking. It is even more exciting to use the raft and go under the falls :) So bring only the important stuff and it would be better if you have a underwater camera. There's... More

I almost didn't try to go down the falls. But upon seeing the Tinago Falls, I felt speechless but it was really, "WOW!" This must be one of God's greatest creations. We had to swim around with our life jackets on since the water is deep. The falls was really breath-taking. The 2 hours travel to Iligan from CDO, and... More
