Mimbalut Falls was our first stop in our Iligan City trip. It is part of Iligan’s tourism triangle alongside Tinago and Maria Cristina Falls. The waterfalls is just near the city proper and can be visited within a day. According to our guide, the source of the falls is similar to Maria Cristina falls.
We did not spend much time here since we wanted to spend more time in Tinago Falls. But if you want to take a dip, just go to the base of the falls. It is also within the vicinity of a resort where you could eat your lunch and swim in their pools.
It resembles Aliw Falls in Luisiana, Laguna. They both have a massive rock face with strong water rushing down. The falls is just near the national highway, no long hike needed.
Mimbalut falls is a jeepney ride away from the city center. Just take a Buru-un bound jeepney and tell him to drop you off at Miguel Canohoy Memorial school marked by a pedestrian overpass. From there, you may walk to Mimbalut falls. Mimbalut falls can be visited alongside Maria Cristina falls and Tinago Falls.
Mimbalut Falls is one of the major attractions in Iligan’s Tourism Triangle alongside Tinago and Maria Cristina falls. The three waterfalls can be conveniently visited in one day because.

- The falls is near a resort. The good side: if you’re going here during lunch time, you may eat at their tables. The bad side: it gets crowded.
