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

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
