IliganMar 16, 2009

Tinago Falls of Iligan City

This is perhaps the longest day trip I ever made for a waterfall. From Camiguin, I took the ferry to the mainland, then bus to Cagayan de Oro, then another bus to Iligan City, then the habal-habal ride to Tinago Falls. I don't know how long it took me, but I was just glad to have made it.

City of Majestic Waterfalls
Yes, this is what they call Iligan City in Lanao del Norte. Iligan boasts of having ¯20 waterfalls including the tallest falls in the country, Maria Christina Falls. The name Iligan is originally a Higaonon word meaning fortress of defense as it protected its inhabitants from frequent raids by pirates and hostile Mindanao tribes.

Tinago Falls
Tinago is a Pilipino term meaning hidden. Not surprising. It takes about 300 steps down a steep ravine to get to the falls. Argued as more beautiful than the Maria Christina Falls, the water cascades 73 meters into a huge lagoon that goes down 30m deep. Yes, it's deep and cold...and actually scary to swim specially as you get closer to the drop zone where the water starts pounding on the plunge pool (no, I didn't get that close). The falls is surrounded by a stunningly beautiful natural landscape. It's certainly worth a visit if not for that reason alone.
