About Maria Cristina Falls
Not only does Maria Cristina look stunning, but it also has great value to the locals of Iligan City. It is estimated that the waterfall has a flow that can supply 70% of Mindanao’s power with its current of 200 megawatts. As a result, people cannot swim in the Maria Cristina Falls. Visiting here won’t be a disappointment, though, as you can still admire it from afar, and hop from one waterfall to another like Tinago Falls. Iligan is known as the “City of Majestic Waterfalls” because it’s home to many waterfalls.
Definition of Maria Cristina Falls
The name Maria Cristina Falls comes from a legend about two sisters named Maria and Cristina who both fell in love with the same man. Learn more about them below.
Maria Cristina Falls: What to expect?
It’s time to list the things you should expect when you visit the Maria Cristina Falls so that you know what to expect. Maria Cristina Falls are sometimes referred to as twin falls because a rock separates the flow of water at the brink.
In the connecting area of the waterfall, the National Power Corporation (NPC) has developed an adventure sports park, where people can enjoy rock climbing and trekking.
Visitors can view the waterfall from a viewing deck on the 3rd floor of the NPC building on Saturdays, Sundays, and special holidays when the power plant is closed.
The NPC must be contacted first to verify that the falls are open for viewing. The admission fee is P50.
Since there is such a strong current here, swimming is strictly prohibited here.
