For indeed, it is!
I went last summer 2012 in Lanao Del Norte, particularly in Iligan City to see for myself the beauty and bounty of Lanao Del Norte.
From Cagayan De Oro city proper, I went to the West Bound Bus Terminal and boarded a bus en route to Iligan City.
Fee for the aircon is P85.00 and for non-aircon is P70.00.
Travel time is 1 hour and 20 minutes or a distance of 89 kilometers.
Arriving at Iligan City, I chartered a habal-habal for my day tour of Iligan.
First in the itinerary was - Maria Cristina Falls
Before you can see the falls itself, you have to go to NPC's Nature's Park.
Park hours is 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Entrance fee is P35.00 and in case you want to do the zipline, the fee is P200.00.
While you are inside the park, you might as well visit the Botanical and Zoological Gardens.
It is part of the fee you paid, might as well take a peek while you are there.
And finally, the Maria Cristina Falls!
Then, the Mimbalot Falls!
Well, the thing is, you have to ride a cable car to see the falls at the Iligan Paradise Resort.
Mimbalot Falls is located at Barangay Buru-un, Iligan City. It is approximately 90 ft. and 18 ft. wide.
|From City of Falls site|
And the last spot for the day - Tinago Falls!
That afternoon, I went back to Cagayan De Oro, full of happiness and satisfaction.
Indeed, Lanao Del Norte is a place of Beauty and Bounty! =)
