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

You hear the ravage of water falling on the rocks but you cant see it yet. Slowly going down you feel the mist and then it unravels the beautiful falls hidden.

I visited Tinago Falls a few days ago. The Falls are lovely, enchanting and well worth a visit. However, travellers should be aware of two serious drawbacks. Firstly it is very hot and humid in Mindanao, so be prepared tp sweat profusely, even walking downwards to the Falls. Always take a flannel cloth to dry yourself. Secondly, tavel in Mindanao...

There are two ways to reach the hidden beauty, our foot led us to the 360+ steps way... Truly hidden, a marvel that deserves to be kept and treasured.... Hoping that the feud between the two operating units be resolved, the bridge be restored as I believe that the guests deserves to enjoy the entire area... Not just one side... More

Would recommend this place... I've been here like more than 10 times. It's still mesmerizing :) It's a very very cool and scenic place to have fun with your family and friends. But you have to go down forgot how many steps but it's a very long one but it's worth the effort :)

Made a day trip to Iligan to visit this place. Unfortunately the place was crowded due to weekends, don't be mistaken by the photographs I took them where the crowd was not concentrated in the area. You'll have to climb hundreds of steps downhill and uphill after the viewing is done. Water temperature is close to room and so far... More

it is a beautiful place I think everyone on this planet should see. Although I don't want to say so as I am worried it will become commercialized. But it does deserve a review. This place is in my opinion one of the most beautiful places on earth. Getting down to the falls is long and includes hundreds of steps... More

It took our breath away literally due to the fact that it was a bit hard to get to the fall and out of the fall's area. Beautiful and clean surroundings.

We hired a taxi at a cost of P800 to visit both Tinago and Maria Cristina Falls. The trip from Plaza Alamenia Hotel took 34 minutes, the walk and descent to the falls 25 minutes. From the car park with its sari sari store the walk is 800 metres to the start of the steps into the valley. That one... More
