Alright, I dont wanna be bias or anything because I am from Iligan city. But this waterfall is definitely worth the trip.. if you're not from the area, you may find it kind of tricky to go to this place because of its location. But I'm telling you, drop all your MAYBEs and WHAT IFs. Because never in your lifetime... More

According to our guide, there are around 244 steps down to the waterfalls, the going down is quite easy, but the way back up is such a pain in the legs. 2 days after, my leg muscles still hurt from the walk back up. However, I must say that the site is most definitely worth visiting. You can even bring... More

Come down on around 80 degrees 400 steps and reaching down below, lo and behold... a majestic waterfalls. Make sure you wear your life vest before going to swim. The water is around 20 deg C and it's to cool to swim. You might have cramps on your legs. Going up is a challenge. You will burn enough calories.

This place is a thirst quencher to people who seeks adventure and physical challenge. Important reminders: As you head to this place be sure you are in a group of people and have all the necessary things with you (no overnights here, best timing to go is early morning). It would take hundreds of steep and high steps going to... More

First, you can only hear it. As soon as you put you feet on the first of the 468 steps going down, you can start listening to its sound. As you go down more steps, the sound becomes more vibrant. But still you couldn't view it. You will only be able to gaze upon it maybe on the 460th step... More

One of the best Waterfalls in Mindanao is TINAGO FALLS! 14 Kilometer away from City, we're enjoying our travel while were going on the spot. After the long ride, we need to pass first the 400 plus steps. I was so amazed on the place and the surroundings. The water of the Tinago Falls was so cold and it so... More

This is one attraction that you should include in your itinerariesin visiting Iligan ..... failing to do so would mean losing half of your life. We (a group of friends) were so mesmerized about the beauty of the falls .... it was enchanting and awesome. Make sure to experience riding the "balsa" ( a raft made of bamboo) that will... More

One of the best looking, awe-inspiring waterfalls I've ever been to and I've been to quite a few. The water's pristine, cold and just looking at the curtains of waterfalls makes one feel refreshed already.

To get to Tinago Falls, one must ride a roro type vessel from Ozamis going to Mukas Port, Lanao Del Norte. The fare is 25 pesos with a terminal fee of 3 pesos only.. Upon reaching the Mukas Port, one can walk from the port going to the bus terminal that will lead to Iligan City. Tell the bus conductor... More
