Tinago Falls, Iligan

4.6
#1 of 14 in Things to do in Iligan
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.

  • One of the most beautiful falls that I have seen. It's a bit hidden though and transportation is bit of an issue but once you reach this place, its like finding gem. Safety is not a concern contrary to what people say in Manila. Locals here help visitors watch their belongings and can be trusted.
  • Tinago Falls is the most popular tourist attraction in Iligan City. The water is fresh and cold (very cold). Tables are limited so better come here early. By the way, you need to climb down 300+ steps. This is the only way to go in and out so better bring your stair climbing skills because your going to need it.
  • Cold and deep water so you need to rent a life jacket. Very amazing place..a must visit
  • 4 stars for a job well done.. 1 star for more inprovements specially to the dinning tables.
  • Tinago Falls is simply one of the best waterfalls in the city. "Tinago" is a Filipino term that translates to "hidden" in English is definitely a hidden gem. The waterfall is so high, the water is so clean and cold, you will be in awe. It will always be my #1 tourist spot in Iligan City.
