Tinago Falls is a waterfall in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte in the southern Philippine island of Mindanao. It is one of the main tourist attractions in Iligan, a city known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls.

Tinago is a Filipino term meaning “hidden”, the falls being hidden in a deep ravine. Trekking to the falls requires approximately 500 descending steps called the winding staircase.


The falls is high, its very cold waters cascading beautifully into a deep and calm basin-like pool which appears like a blue-colored lagoon. Under the falls is a small cave where people can enter and listen to the rumbling waters.

In order to get to Tinago Falls from downtown Iligan, board a multicab bound for Buru-un. This will first pass by Maria Cristina Falls then a little farther is the jump-off point to Tinago Falls.You have to trek down a winding staircase with about 500 steps. The task can be a long and difficult one so that families with small children are not advised to take the trek for safety.
