Tinago Falls, Iligan

(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
A place where legends and nature meet, Tinago Falls lie tucked away in a verdant ravine. To get there, you need to descend several hundred stairs until you see the veil of water plummeting into the clear pool. Enter the small cave under the pool to hear the drumming of the water. Ask the locals about the ancient legend of the king and queen that had wronged an enchantress, who later punished them by making their daughter ugly. They hid the child in a cave, and she transformed into the falls and thus became beautiful. By using our Iligan trip generator, you can arrange your visit to Tinago Falls and other attractions in Iligan.

  • The place is really beautiful. Been there twice. In 2013 and just this May 2016, still strikingly beautiful, and crystal clear. But the major change I noticed is that now there's a pool for children and changing room/bathroom. But the changing room isn't maintained properly. Paying for every use/entry (PhP 5.00) is not an issue, but it stinks, no proper door for its 4 stalls (2 with water closet, 2 for changing only maybe). It smells of urine, and seems there's no water for flushing. If they're expecting tourists to pay, they should maintain it properly.
  • The majestic waterfalls of Tinago! It's like a hidden treasures deeply rooted in the innermost part of the jungle. Will take you a while to reach this place . From the main road of lanao or Iligan , will take you quite a number of kilometers to reach the welcome desk of the place. From there you need to be physically fit to be able to walk down the stairs leading to this grand majestic falls! It's really no sweat in going down , the hard part is going up!☺️👍🏻 be ready and prepared! It's so worth it tho. Please take care of This place , mind your trash to dispose it properly! Take care of Mother Nature pls? Enjoy !

  • We were like "tourists in our own city" in awe of this hidden gem. The long descent (365) steps as local guides say became too tiring to count midway, yet all that was rewarded by the breathtaking view.
