For the many times I've been in Tinago, I am always enchanted with its beauty. It's a must see for everyone visiting Iligan. Not advisable though for the aged or those who are not very healthy since the walk / climb is quite taxing.

You need to go down before you can behold the majestic waters. I have been here many times since we live within the city, and I keep coming back for relaxation and a bit of adventure. The 400+ stairs is very challenging. No pain no gain, as the saying goes... This is a must see and I promise you cannot... More

Im 45 Yrs and brought my fMily to Tinago falls. This wAs quite a hiking steep challenge. Its sad the place is quite a nice natural wonder but poorly maintained or developed and fairly unkept. 1 route isdilapidated and thus would recommend the cleaner route south . The latter route does require 20 more minutes driving to its drop off... More

Did this as a touristy thing. The road is a total nightmare.... It's hours and hours. The climb down and up is not written about its very Sherpa like The falls and deep pool are spectacular. Totally. However at the bottom they have made nothing of it amenities are zero. Could be so much better.

going down and finding the hidden waterfalls is a piece of cake. You can hear the water from afar. But when you get to see the majestic waterfalls, well, just wooow. It's all worth it. I just hope that people will be more responsible about their trash. And also they can provide new life jackets as the ones we were... More

Tinago means hidden. The waterfalls seems hidden but that does not prevent lovers of nature to find the Tinago Falls. Just a 15 minutes ride from Iligan City proper to see the hidden beauty of the waterfalls.

Via habal-habal ride, you'll reach this amazing falls situated in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte. The vicinity of the place was once privately owned and was converted into a hotel and resort but due to bankruptcy, the place was forlorn. It's a down stairs trail before you'll be able to see the falls and it's natural pool. In the tourist... More

This falls, so far, was one that took my breath away! For starters in going to the area you'll need to be riding a vehicle. There are two entrances going to the falls and we took the 'shorter'. From the entrance you have to walk a bit to where a loooong flight of zigzagging stairs going down as the falls... More

Before you see this magnificent water falls, be ready to walk through the 400 plus steps-stair down for around 15 minutes or less depending how fast you are. There is an entrance fee of 25 pesos. The area where you can swim is big, they have lifejackets for rent for 25 pesos and ride on their bamboo raft for 15... More
