Iligan City

Iligan is an independently administered city in the Northern Mindanao Region, although geographically, it is a part of Lanao del Norte. This city is home to several waterfalls, including the famous Maria Cristina Falls, which is why Iligan has been dubbed “the City of Majestic Waterfalls”.

Maria Cristina, the highest falls in the Philippines, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. It is also a part of Lake Lanao, the country’s largest freshwater lake. This makes for a powerful hydroelectric power source to certain portions of Mindanao.

Other popular falls would be the Tinago Falls and the Mimbalut Falls. Tinago is a gem hidden within the recesses of a deep canyon, but its clear blue waters will make the hike worth it. Mimbalut is a comparatively more accessible waterfall, located right next to a resort.

There are several other waterfalls in this area, like Dalipuga, Dodiongan, Hindang, Kalubihon, Langilanon, and many more — around 20, to be exact.

For those who are more into climbing than chasing waterfalls, Mount Agad-Agad is a highly popular place for hiking and camping out.

Other great areas to visit would be National Power Corporation (NPC) Nature’s Park, a nature park within a hydroelectric plant, and the Anahaw Open Amphitheater, for those who are big on cultural events.
