Tinago Falls is a Hidden Treasure of Iligan City

Located in Iligan City also known as City of Majestic Waterfalls, Tinago Falls is one of the beautiful falls in the Philippines. The name “ Tinago was derived from the Filipino word which means ‘hidden” that Is indeed falls being hidden in a fascinating deep ravine. The place is so calm that is said that the Falls is a sanctuary for weary souls seeking to commune with nature.

Tinago Falls is about 240 feet high cascading cold water which fall beautifully into basin-like pool which appears like a turquoise -colored lagoon. It is about 13.8 kilometers away from the city proper. Trekking to the falls requires approximately 500 descending steps called the winding staircase. But the efforts of the adventurers pay off at their first sight of the spot.

How to get there:

From the city proper, take a Buru-un route jeepney going to Buru-un Market or Talipapa. From there, take a motorcycle and ask the driver to take you to Tinago Falls.

If you want adventure to get out from the busy metro and stressful work, pack-up and head to Tinago Falls in Iligan City Lanao Del Norte.
