From Postcards to Reality: The Majestic Maria Cristina Falls, Iligan City

From Benoni port, we were suppose to take the bus to Agora but then, we saw a starex van just outside the terminal. We immediately negotiated the price and we agreed to rent the whole van for Php 1200. 

After almost 3 hours, we finally reach Agora. Another driver was waiting for us to take us to Iligan City. We took a quick lunch at Jollibee. Again, we took the opportunity to take a quick nap. 

Quick nap pala is 2 hours! It's already 2pm and we have not reached Iligan City yet. NPC compound, where Maria Cristina Falls is located will close at 4pm. At 2:30pm, we're finally here.

Entrance fee:

We paid Php 35 for the entrance fee and Php 200 to try their zipline with majestic view. Pero pagdating namin dun, walang attendant. Kailangan pa naming tawagin yung guard. Then, we were informed that slippers were not allowed. We were all wearing slippers! They have shoes available to wear for free but they were so worn out. We just opted for refund. 

We walk a short distance passing this bat cave.

Maria Cristina Falls powers the Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant that has 200MW capacity. It provides electricity in mindanao.

At last.... The Majestic Maria Cristina Falls

Maria Cristina Falls is also known as twin falls because the flow is separated by a rock. It is located in Iligan City, the City of Majestic Waterfalls because of the presence of more than 20 waterfalls. The 320 feet waterfalls is known for its grandeur and beauty. 

Majestic indeed!
