Waterfalls in Iligan City: Maria Cristina Falls

Maria Cristina Falls is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Iligan City. The waterfalls is part of the Agus River, a major source of electricity in Mindanao.

At at 320 - feet high, it is considered as the second highest falls in the Philippines and is sometimes called "twin falls" because the flow of the water in the falls is separated by a rock at the edge of the waterfall.

The waterfall is one of the primary sources of electric power generated by the Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant. Visitors and tourists may climb the viewing deck at the 3rd floor of the power plant building to have a grand view of the waterfalls. From here, the view is truly jaw-dropping!
