It's literally hidden and you have to find it in order to see it (WHAAAAT?) Okay forget those words haha

One of the most beautiful I have ever seen in my life is Tinago Falls. It's so beautiful that you wouldn't want to leave it but you have to because they don't allow people camping within the falls area, it's only open until 5pm.

This was my first stop Just this Friday upon arriving at Cagayan de Oro City, going here is not easy as 1-2-3 because I kind of had a hard time. Upon arriving at Laguindingan Airport (Iligan and Cagayan de Oro's nearby airport), ride a shuttle outside the arrival hall plying to Iligan City, when you already reached the terminal, ride a jeepney plying to Buruuan with a 1C sign board, then go down at the bridge where you can see a Welcome to Maria Christina Falls banner and rent a habal habal (motorcycle) which will already lead to 3 of Iligan's famous falls which includes the most beautiful among the three for me, the Tinago Falls!

Tinago Falls is one of the many waterfalls I've been to. If you happen to visit Iligan City, this is one of their main attraction aside from Timoga and Maria Cristina falls. Like many other waterfalls, it entails challenge where you need to go down 400 steps for you to reach the spot. Okay for the youngsters but for the parents, they may need guidance especially in going up again where subsequent rest may be required. A towel and a bottle of water will be of great help for sure. It's called Tinago because it is literally hidden, not at sight not until you've come closer to it. The place is super huge and there are waterfalls at each side. One side, you can actually climb to it for a photo op or even jump if you want to. What's great about this place is that it is surrounded by rocks where you can just sit with friends or even with the whole family, talk anything under the sun and jump together for fun. It was a best experience for me, especially that I'm with friends and family that time. Company is important when you're with a big crowd, they'll bring more color to your travels and adventures. 128516

I don't like beaches as you feel sticky when you get off the water and your body start to dry. Its a different thing when you go to the falls.. I really enjoyed the natural shower experience with water cascading from atop the falls and i am on board the raft. Its very relaxing and the water massage sort of relieved my stresses. Worthwhile returning. As the name suggest, the falls is really hidden and the water is very clean. I hope it will stay that way for years to come!!!

This falls is a hidden gem in the region. You can sail to the falls itself using a raft pulled using a rope. The water is cold too. Some tourist climb the wall on the side of the falls so they can jump and dive into the water.

Iligan City is known as The City of Waterfalls.

True to its name, Tinago Falls is hidden in a ravine that can be accessed by a long series of descending steps. From the top of the stairs you can hear the loud sound of cascading waters, but you wouldn't see the falls until you get to the bottom of the ravine where the water falls into a pool about 90 feet deep.

Though the walking and climbing is tiring, still the visit to Tinago Falls is worth it!

Tinago falls is located in a small town in Iligan city, it's about 2hrs from CDO. I purposely included Iligan in our tour since I really wanted to see the waterfalls in this city.
To get to the falls, you've to go down 400 steps 128563 but the nearer you get to the falls, the foliage becomes more dense and interesting. It's called Tinago because you won't see it right away (though you can hear it) unless you're already by the brook. And what a sight to see! There are a lot of local folks and kids enjoying the view as well.
We rode a bamboo raft (with our guide) so we could go nearer the falls. The water was so cold and refreshing! Btw, you've to wear a life vest cos the water in the lagoon is 65 feet deep.
Best to bring a change of clothes because you will be completely soaked once you go under the falls.
