o Specifically located at Fuentes, Iligan City, Philippines. This is one of the eight wonders of the world. This is the supplier of electricity of the whole Mindanao Region of the Philippines. Its better to visit this during time between 10 am to 12 noon or 1 pm to 2 pm. You can ask the guard on duty.
* TINAGO FALLS ( hidden falls)
o Tinago Falls is specifically in between the province of Linamon, Lanao Del Norte and barangay Buru-un, Iligan City. This means that theres a way from Buru-un to the Hidden Falls and theres also a way from Linamo. But I highly recommend you the way of Buru-un. Its more convenient!
o Located on top of a hill within the Mabuhay Vinyl Corporation plant site, the small park rimming a lagoon is a burst of color and life. Visitors can go boating.
o Iligan City’s grandest Christian Catholic Church. On top stands the tallest figure of Senior San Miguel - Iligan City’s patron saint. It also have its beautifully crafted smoked glass of Senior San Miguel visible outside, and the life, death and resurrection of Christ inside.
o Its still under develop by the Municipality of Buru-un, Iligan City, Philippines. Since, it was one of the Falls in Iligan were nobody own it! Due to that, the Iligan City government assumes that it was a government property. A falls just near in my childhood school.
o The two-tiered falls is the country’s, probably Asia’s, highest waterfalls, with a total height of 870 ft. The lower cascade alone is higher than Maria Cristina. It is in Iligan’s eastern part, close to the boundaries of Bukidnon and Lanao del Sur. Situated in the hinterland barangay of Rogongon, it is 54 kms away.
o Located in Bonbonon, 14.5 kms away from the city, is a 65-foot high falls cascading down a concrete-like boulder. Its tranquil, cool water and lush vegetation is a real haven for nature lovers. The pool at the foot of the falls is very ideal for swimming.

All you have to do if your already at Iligan City from the hotel were you stay you can took a TAXI and told him were to go from all those places I’ve mention.
