Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan

4.2
#2 of 16 in Things to do in Iligan
Witness the impressive Maria Cristina Falls, the second highest cascade in the country, surrounded by lush jungle plant life. The majestic falls cascade some 98 m (320 ft) to the pool below, relinquishing over 130 cubic m (4,590.9 cubic ft) of water per second. A dramatic split formed by a rocky outcrop at their brink gives the falls their nickname, "Twin Falls." Juxtaposed against this verdant tropical landscape, you'll spot the nearby Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant, which harnesses the power of the falls to provide the city of Iligan with the majority of its power. Take your camera to capture photos of this visually impressive waterfall. Make Maria Cristina Falls part of your personalized Iligan itinerary using our Iligan road trip planning website .

  • The falls is majestic! however the nature park is closed due to the ongoing martial law. but if you have time you must stop by :) entrance fee is 35 discounted and 45 is the regular price
  • It is a majestic falls. I just once read this via books but the moment I see her, I fell in love with her. There are amenities available. Water smells fresh and deep. Not good if you want to swim. Good for day trip sight seeing. There is a zoo adjacent to the place.
  • such a beautiful waterfall, love the noise and the smell of the waterfall so fresh and very relaxing for the mind and soul. Good for field trips, vacation and so on..
  • In the Mindanao island it's a very beautiful waterfall of the River Agus, also called twin falls. There are more than 20 waterfall in the Iligan city and this one is definitely a beautiful site to visit with family, friends and kids.
  • Absolutely stunning, so much power from the falls, a well worth trip. Also there are food stalls along the way on the road where you can get fresh seafood.
