You didn’t not know it, did you? That Iligan City has a Tourism Triangle, and you’ve went to these tourist spots but you didn’t know that they are geographically located in angles of each other making an imaginary triangle shape.  I, too, for some time, until I was told of it — made me want to visit them again.

OZAMIZ CITY | Knowing and Visiting Ozamiz

I was so tired from my Hindang Adventures that I was adamant on taking travelling, but that was my maternal grandparents death anniversary — so I had to go. I only agreed to travel if my mom and I would stop by the Fort Santiago of Ozamis City. It was my first time to visit the Fort Santiago even if I’ve traveled down this road since my toddler days.  My mom hailed from the Green City of the Philippines — […] Read More

ILIGAN CITY | Dodiongan Falls

Two days after Hindang excursion I got to visit Brgy. Bonbonon, Iligan City. The Brgy. Bonbonon is the host barangay of Dodiongan Falls, which is 14.5 km from the city proper — distance and leg cramps from Hindang Cave trail didn’t stop me.  The visit was unplanned and had adventure written on it at every angle. LotLot invited me to join her visit the falls as they make a delivery to Brgy. Bonbonon. It was a far-from-city-proper barangay and somehow she made […] Read More

OZAMIZ CITY Transportation Guide | How To Get There & Directions

Misamis was an Old Spanish town, which existed as far back as the Spanish era and was conquered strangely not by force of arms, but through faith by some Jesuit Missionaries. Though obscure, the origin of the name “Misamis” is believed to have been derived from the Subano word “Kuyamis” which is a variety of coconut. During the years the name persisted as an inference of geographical location and upon the advent of the Spanish settlers. The word “Kuyamis” easily […] Read More

ILIGAN CITY | Hindang Falls

Hindang Falls is approximately 20km from the city proper and is accessible through Brgy. Hindang. As we set off our Hindang Adventure our second itinerary was the Hindang Falls, and I was eager to get my feet wet and check out the falls. I was not disappointed. Not one bit. The trail going to Hindang Falls is better than Tinago Falls. It was short with a 7-10mins trek and manageable trail. It also brings in a surprise factor as the trail […] Read More

ILIGAN CITY | Spelunking at Hindang Cave

One of the scenic and must-to-go spots at Brgy. Hindang, Iligan City is the Hindang Cave. A ~1hour ride to get you to this barangay in the hinterlands from the city proper and a 2-3hour uphill trek to get to Hindang Cave. The trail is good for the experienced trekkers and for people who are physical conditioned for it. All I can say is that I was not cut out for this trek but am happy I’ve done it and came out unscratched. […] Read More

ILIGAN CITY | Ambitiously Trekking the Hindang Cave Trail

It was a friend who asked if I’ve ever been to Hindang Cave or Falls, and because that I haven’t — searched for previous posts regarding both — but I couldn’t find any!  Which saddens me. Then frustrated me. And made really want to go there.  How could anyone not write about something when random people have been raving about it for some time now? After planning it for 2-3 weeks — directions to Brgy Hindang was the problem. Once I got over that, I was in […] Read More
