Iligan City - A Majestic Falls of Maria Christina

Maria Christina is one of Majestic Falls, it is sometimes called the "Twin Falls" as the flow is separated by a rock. When I was in grade school, I always heard this in our lecture in Hekasi and I can't believe that I  witnessed how beautiful  Maria Christina falls is.

Beautiful Maria Christina Falls
When I arrived at Cagayan De Oro City at 8:30 am I leave my things first in my hotel before headed to Iligan City. From the Cagayan Park view Hotel where I check in, I ask some of locals on how to get at Bulua Terminal, I walk  around to find a Jeep with sign board Bulua Terminal, I  find it at  2nd crossing street from my hotel the fare is P18. When I arrived in the terminal, there are 2 bus companies  offer a ride bound to Iligan City fare is P140 Air-conditioned travel time is approximately  1 hour and 20 minutes.

After 1 hour and 30 minutes I arrived in the Iligan City  and transfer a jeep going to Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant where Maria Christina falls is located. I pay 40 pesos in the ticketing booth for shuttle service, because no one splits on me for the fare, the first stop is in Botanical & Zoological Garden. there's few animals that time, because the renovation is on going.

After a couple of minutes inside the zoo I went outside to called my driver to take me in the main attraction "The Maria Christina Falls" going to the falls is not a walking distance it is a little bit far from the main gate and the staff are not allowing visitor to walk.

When I see the falls I said to myself this is it, finally we see each other I stayed almost an hour  to complete my excitement. After I leave I told maria and Christina that I will come back again soon. The driver waits me and drop off me in the main gate, I waited again a jeep going to city center to take my lunch before going back to Cagayan de oro.

  3. I love the pictures here Pao.. I only know Maria Christina Falls from the text books we had in Elementary along with the famous Pagsanjan falls... I guess this one is more popular because of the hydroelectric power Plant associated with it.. i believe that is the only one in our country
    thanks for sharing

  4. ang dami mo nang napuntahan tol ah. tuwing kelan ka nag travel? Lagi ka ba nag file ng leave?

  5. Oh my! I just came from a visit to two famous falls here in Laguna! And this one is as majestic as what I've seen during the weekend. I'm sure I'll be amazed by this once I see this personally. I hope I can visit here someday. :)

  6. I remember this too from my Sibika at Kultura subject. How near can you get to the falls? Or is there a special arrangement to get near it?

  7. I've only ever seen this from books like all the others who have commented before me. This is quite far from where I'm living now, but I do hope I get the chance to experience the majestic vibe of the falls.

  8. Wow, just hearing 'Maria Christina Falls' takes me back to grade school. Too bad you weren't able to go near it. Got to add this to my travel bucket list. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Beautiful Pictures!! It must be an adventurous trip!! :)

  11. yeah, i can remember Maria Cristina falls sa HEKASI subject. Ganda! hope to see it with my own eyes soon. :)

  12. I've only read about the place in books, but I'm sure it looks breathtaking in person. Your photos are true testament to that, for sure. :) Mari Cristina Falls has now been added to my travel list!

  13. Hubby is from Iligan and he grew up there. He told me that he misses the province so I'm wishing that he misses it enough for us to visit there soon.

  14. I really want to have a quick getaway. there are a lot of great places that I have not visited yet and Iligan is one of those. Thanks for sharing.

  15. The waterfall looks stunning. Hope you had a good time.

A Chartered Flight of Philippine Airlines | PR 2242 - Cebu to Kalibo

In the past few years, I’ve been into Philippines Airlines flight across the Philippines, but this is the memorable one, a flight that I’ve never ever expected in my whole travel career.
Back then when I was planning my Zamboanga, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi travels, I was thinking to escape Manila as my transit airport instead I do use Davao on my onward flight to Zamboanga from Iloilo and Cebu as my return flight to Kalibo. I rush myself going to the airport from Cebu City, I miss the 6:40 pm schedule of Mybus going to Mactan-Cebu International Airport, I ride to the 7 pm schedule instead, I was a little bit nervous since my scheduled flight is 9 pm, I got worried about the traffic that will cause of missing my flight, but I made it I reach the Airport 1 hour before my flight schedule.

The last time I depart/arrive at this airport was in 2011 my 1st ever travel. There's a lot of changes and it more beautiful. I headed straight to the check-in counter to get a boarding pass since I check…
