Iligan is a highly urbanized city in the Northern Mindanao region, Philippines. It is geographically within the province of Lanao del Norte but administered independently from the province. It was once part of Central Mindanao (Region 12) until the province was moved under Northern Mindanao (Region 10) in 2001. Iligan is known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls because of the numerous waterfalls located within its area. There are about 24 waterfalls in the city.

Maria Cristina Falls

Maria Cristina Falls

The most famous as well as the city's major landmark is the Maria Cristina Falls. It is also the primary source of electric power of the city, harnessed by Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant.

Tinago Falls

Tinago Falls

Tinago Falls is a waterfall in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte in the southern Philippine island of Mindanao. It is one of the main tourist attractions in Iligan, a city known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls. Tinago is a Filipino term meaning "hidden", the falls being hidden in a deep ravine. Trekking to the falls requires approximately 500 descending steps called the winding staircase.

Mimbalut Falls

Mimbalut Falls

Unlike Maria Cristina Falls, which supplies the electric power in the province, Mimbalot Falls is not very developed yet. Restaurants and sari-sari stores are nowhere to be found nearby. Considered part of Iligan Paradise Resort and Eco Park where one can enjoy the zip-line (for a clearer view of the whole waterfalls), Mimbalot is one of the most accessible waterfalls in Lanao del Norte. Inside the Eco Park you can try the cable car and enjoy the stunning views without the added adrenaline rush experienced in zip line rides.

Dodiongan Falls

Diyandi Festival

The Diyandi Festivalis the official title of the city's month long celebration. It is to promote the cultural identity and in honor of city's patron saint, Saint Michael.

Diyandi Festival derived its name from "diyandi" which means "celebrate" while "mag-diyandi" means "to celebrate". It was researched by the world renowned creative director of the Integrated Arts Guild (IPAG). Thus the word "diyandi" becomes the perfect trademark to Iligan's extended celebration.

Today, the fiesta developed into more festive, colorful, and more life cultural celebration.
