Tourism dept budgets P50m for Tinago Falls in Iligan city

By Nora Sorino, Iligan City Bureau Chief and
Sita Asequia, Correspondent .

Iligan City administrator lawyer Leo Zaragoza yesterday disclosed that the development for Tinago Falls has a budget of P50 million from the Department of Tourism.

He said the initial works for said project will be for the survey even as there will be bidding too in the near future.

The said falls is from the Agus river and is located between Iligan city and town Linamon in Lanao Norte.

Tinago Falls is 73 meters high and the waters there are clear and blue.

Even with its present state where development is minimal, Zaragoza said still tourists go there and get closer to the falls through a ladder of 200 or so cemented steps.

There are also coconut trees near the area and tourists could partake of the buko or young coconuts planted in the area above.

Caretaker of said place, Zaragoza said is a Mrs. Viray and he said he knew of some reports that her  relatives are also at the place and investigations will be made as he added she should “act as model” due to her assignment there.

They should not occupy the place, the lawyer said, thereby hinting that she is an employee of the government although he did not say it outright.

Iligan city is known as “City of Waterfalls” and among them is the Maria Cristina Falls which is also from the Agus River and is  harnessed to provide hydro-electric power to the city and the rest of Mindanao.
