Iligan City Tourism Triangle in a Day: The Plan

Iligan City truly has a lot to offer. If you're into nature tripping, we have 23 waterfalls, 8 springs, and 15 caves. And what makes this more interesting is that three of these majestic waterfalls can be visited in one day! Barangays Ma. Cristina, Buru-un, and Ditucalan house the famous Ma. Cristina Falls, Mimbalot Falls, and Tinago Falls, respectively. Iligan City Tourism Office has tagged these areas as the Tourism Triangle.
