Location: Maria Cristina, Iligan City
Types: Slide horsetail, Segmented

Public elementary school’s old text books in Social Studies had immortalized the majestic Maria Cristina Falls.

Those Marcos-era books created mystique and aura that never occurred to me I would experience it personally.
Maria Cristina FallsStanding at 98 meters, Maria Cristina Falls still holds the legendary beauty as I have originally known.

With the electric power harnessed at Maria Cristina Falls, it helped Iligan City in attaining its status as a highly urbanized industrial city. It supplies approximately 200 MW of electricity.

How To Get There:

  • From Manila: take any Cagayan de Oro-bound flight of PAL, Cebu Pacific, and Zest Air.
  • From Cagayan de Oro City: take an Ozamiz-bound Rural Bus at the West Terminal in Bulua. Drop off in Iligan City.
  • From Iligan City: from the highway take a leisure walk going to NPC Nature’s Park.
