Tinago Falls, Iligan

(130+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Magical. Really quite difficult to navigate to, signage from main highway is hard. But once you get there the place is just a treat. The public amenities need some work but the local porters will really assist with ensuring you have an enjoyable time.
  • me and my friends is enjoying the cold water... guys I am inviting you to visit there i guarantee that you will had fun here..
