Falls Hopping At Iligan (City Of Majestic WaterFalls)
wwweeewww….I do know where to start in this post but I already start it..aehehehe..
Supposed to be this post will be made after our falls hopping at Iligan but sad to say I’m so tired and I’m waiting also some pictures taken by our friends. In this travel I was only invited with my girlfriend together with her officemate, we are 12 in the group and we rent a van to maximize our expenses. On October 18, 2009 Sunday we leave Cagayan de Oro around 8 o’clock in the morning going to Iligan city and we arrived around 10 o’clock in the morning. Our first falls destination at Iligan is the “Maria Cristina Falls” and this falls is the famous of Iligan attraction and it is the Agus River on the Island of Mindanao. It is sometimes referred to as “twin falls” because the water is split in two by a large rock at the brink of the 320 feet drop. We spent an hour in this place to take pictures of the falls.
The next water falls we visit is the “Tinago Falls” which is located at the Southern part of the Philippine Island of Mindanao. This is one of the tourist attractions in Iligan City. Some trivia on this falls, Tinago is a Filipino term which means “Hidden”, the falls being hidden in a deep ravine. After we arrived this falls we need to pay 10 pesos for the entrance and 20 pesos for the life jacket. After fixed our things to bring we go down for the trekking of the falls descending which has 345 steps (I count on it while we go down..aeheheh..) and they called it winding staircase. The falls is high, its very cold waters cascading beautifully into a deep and calm basin-like pool which appears like a blue-colored lagoon. Under the falls is a small cave where people can enter and listen to the rumbling waters. We spend 2 hours in this place (bitin pa din..aeheh) because we need to move to our next destination the Maze Park and Resort.
The Maze Park is a pool area which has different level of the water pool and they have an Olympic sized of swimming pool, and it is also a perfect place for the nature lover who appreciates the beauty of solace. In this place they have a nice garden, mini zoo, a fishing area and a beautiful garden inside. This place is located at Mimbalot Buru-un, Iligan City.
