Dive and Explore the City of Majestic Falls: Iligan, Lanao del Norte





Lanao del Norte is a majestic province blessed with wonders of nature. Located in the Northern Mindanao, the province is surrounded by the mountains of  Bukidnon on the east, water  by the Iligan Bay on the north, and Illana Bay and Celebes Sea on the south and southwest. The province is greatly provided with rich soil and marine resources making the primary livelihood  based on agriculture.

One of the prime features of  Lanao del Norte is  Iligan City also coined as the City of Falls because of the presence of 23 majestic falls within the city boundary fed mostly by the water coming from the great Lanao Lake, the second largest lake in the Philippines.

I was given a chance to have a break and visit Iligan coming from Surigao del Sur.  It is just 45 minutes bus travel coming from Cagayan de Oro.

  2. Wow falls! I've been wanting to explore the 3 falls we have nearby, but due to the bad weather recently I never had the chance yet. Hopefully soon.

  7. Every time I see photos and posts about Iligan and its majestic falls I get to remember the time I was in Iligan and also regret that I wasn't able to visit these great waterfalls.
