Iligan - My Place, My Home

Iligan City is used to be "The Industrial City of the South". Because of consecutive industrial plant shutdowns, it is no longer considered as the Industrial City yet it still has its label - "The City of Majestic Waterfalls". It best describes the wonderful and breathtaking picture of one of the best gifts from God, nature - the waterfalls.  Maria Cristina Falls is a waterfall in Mindanao island and a landmark of my hometown.
It is located 8.5 kilometers away southwestof the city proper. Well-known for its natural beauty and grandeur, the 320-feet high waterfalls is also the primary source of power for the city's industries and the whole Mindanao region.

Iligan doesn't only showcase waterfalls but also various springs and pools. Take a look at some pools to visit in Iligan City.
