Lanao Del Norte: Tinago Falls

Image
One of the main tourist attractions of Iligan City in the the province of Lanao del Norte, Tinago Falls is known for its 240-foot water drop and its blue lagoon. The word Tinago is a Filipino term which means "to hide or be hidden." this is due to the fact that the falls is quite hidden in a deep ravine. To get there, you are required to trek the 500-step winding staircase.


Upon reaching the base of the falls, you would be greeted by a beautiful blue-colored lagoon. Behind the falling waters of the falls is a small cave worth exploring.


During our visit to the falls, there were lots of tourists enjoying its beauty.

Like most popular tourist destinations in the country, Tinago Falls has its own myth. Legand has it that there was once a Sultan had everything; a powerful kingdom, tons of riches, and a very beautiful wife. However, he lacks one thing -a baby. As the story goes, the queen became pregnant and the king became proud saying that his baby will be the most good-lookin…

Located in Mambajao int he island province of Camiguin, measuring about 250 feet in height, Katibawasan Falls is the highest waterfalls in the province.

Found at the foot of Mt. Timpoong , Katibawasan falls is considered as the most popular among the other falls in Camiguin (this might be due to its highly commercialized nature)

Even if the falls is quite tucked in the southern part of Mambajao, you might be shocked that the area around the falls have been improved and is sometimes brimming with tourists. Keep in mind that there is an entrance fee of P15 per person if you want to go nearer the falls.



In case you get hungry or you forgot your lunch, there are several stores that sell foods and souvenirs found a few meters away from the entrance.



Once inside the vicinity, you would notice that the place is well maintained and clean (that's why it was not that painful to say goodbye to my P30). There are also clean washrooms inside the vicinity where you could change up in case you…

Camiguin: J & A Fishpen and Taguines Lagoon

Located in the municipality of Mahinog, in the island province of Camiguin, J & A Fishpen is not your ordinary restaurant. J & A Fishpen is known in Camiguin as the floating resto.

Found in the vicinity of Taguines Lagoon, J & A Fishpen was formerly used as a fishpond but was eventually converted to a floating restaurant. What's nice about this resto is the fact that you are sure about the freshness of the fish. You could even catch the fish from the fishpens in the vicinity and have it cooked in anyway you want it.

During our stopover in J & A Fishpen, my wife and i admired the beautiful ambiance of the restaurant. I also enjoyed feeding the fishes with some of my leftover food. Well I'm not sure if that's allowed but nobody stopped me, so I fed them to my hearts content.



Tourists would surely love the place because aside from the floating resto, you would also enjoy the view of Taguines Lagoon (nope, not as the backdrop for the floating resto though). Yo…
