“Awesome waterfalls”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

The most spectacular sight, well worth a visit. Also a fine example of Hydro Electric usage. The scenery around the falls and river is also stunning and the Hydro Electric plant has been built without spoiling the natural beauty of this area.

“A few hours with Maria Cristina”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

The power of our Mother nature.

In here, you can feel the power of the 98-meter falls. We must take care of our mother nature and make the most out of it.

The hydroelectric plant has a potential capacity of 200MW, and is the reason why electricity rates in Iligan City is cheap compare to neighbouring cities.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This is what Wikipedia describes the falls-- "Maria Cristina Falls is a waterfall of the Agus River on the island of Mindanao. It is sometimes called the "twin falls" as the flow is separated by a rock at the brink of the waterfall. It is a landmark of Iligan City, nicknamed the City of Majestic Waterfalls, because of the presence of more than 20 waterfalls in the city. It is located 9.3 kilometers away southwest of the city proper at the boundaries of Barangays Maria Cristina, Ditucalan, and Buru-un. Well known for its natural beauty and grandeur, the 320 - feet (98 meters) high waterfall is also the primary source of electric power for the city's industries, being harnessed by the Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant." As for me, when in Iligan City, you have to see this to be awed by it.
