Philippines | The Maria Christina Falls

Not just because of its natural beauty and grandeur, Maria Christina Falls is also the most famous waterfall in Mindanao. Do you know why? It's because this giant waterfall generates 70% percent of electricity in the entire island of Mindanao. With a height of 321.5 ft and average flow rate of 130, no one should dare to dive in it or else you’ll be electrified to death (literally). So it’s safe to be few meters away from this majestic waterfall yet still enjoy the beautiful scenery of this natural masterpiece.
Maria Christina falls is the landmark of Iligan City which is located in the northern region of Mindanao. I’ve been to Iligan twice before but I never got the chance to explore the attractions of Iligan or also known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls. So I asked my relatives to come with me today to travel in Iligan and witness the famous Maria Christina Falls.

L to R: Princess (cousin), Austin (nephew), Aunt Cory, Tita Danette and Recca (sister).

Going to the falls would take you about 2.5 hours bus travel from the port of Mukas. Regular bus fare is only PHP 75. Note: You have to instruct the driver or bus attendant to drop you off near the bridge of Agus River. From there on, you can walk to the Nature’s Park where you’ll ride a shuttle heading towards Maria Christina Falls. Entrance fee of the park is PHP 35 and just add PHP 10 for the shuttle service. And if you want to try their scary zip line, you’ll pay a separate fee of PHP 100.

We only stayed for 3 hours inside the Nature’s Park but the overall experience is beyond amazing and I think anyone who is a nature lover would really enjoy the vibe and the view of the waterfalls. So if you’re planning a trip to Iligan City, make sure to include the famous Maria Christina Falls! It's all worth it.
