Dubbed the “City of Majestic Waterfalls,” Iligan City will not disappoint if you are after various experiences and views of cascading waters. That feature alone makes it a prime tourist spot in Lanao del Norte in Mindanao, Philippines.
Iligan City is home to Maria Cristina Falls, the iconic waterfall standing proudly at 320 feet on the Agus River. Its natural splendor tells the story of a legend that supposedly involves a tragic ending for sisters Maria and Cristina after falling for the same man. But casting the myths aside, Maria Cristina Falls is not only a beautiful sight but also an essential source of hydroelectric energy for the entire city. Other worthy attractions to include in your itinerary are Tinago Falls, Limunsudan Falls, and Mimbalut Falls, each with a unique character. You also should not miss a visit to St. Michael’s Cathedral and NPC’s Nature Park or a whitewater rafting adventure at Villa Gracia Resort along the Mandulog River.
To complete your experience of northern Mindanao, visit Lanao del Sur, Misamis provinces, and Marawi City.
