Maria Cristina falls powers hydroelectric electric plant in Iligan, the sound of the falls is really loud and scary. The place is open for tourist to view, theres no a lot of place to eat in this place, but they offer ice cream.

This falls is really fascinating. We did try to fly our drone here but the strong wind from the falls keeps pushing our drone away so we just had to use our dslr.

It is considered as the most famous among Iligan attractions. What makes it famous is because you can see the rushing waters split into two by a big rock at the brink estimated at about 320ft drop, thus,the monicker "twin falls". To better appreciate its...More
