Maria Cristina Falls is the most beautiful and tallest waterfall in the country at 58 meters high and nearly as wide. It is located nine kilometers south of lIigan City, a prosperous city which owes its wealth to the hydroelectric power the falls generate.

Pagsanjan Falls is the most famous of all Philippine waterfalls. It is actually located in the town of Lumban, Laguna. The famous falls got its name from the mighty Pagsanjan River that runs through several towns in Laguna. Pagsanjan Falls and shooting the eleven rapids in a banca meandering down the brown stillness of the Pagsanjan River and entering gurgling rapids strewn with large boulders have always been perennial tourist attractions.

Katibawasan Falls is located in Mambajao, Camiguin Island, a beautiful and enchanting island teeming with volcanoes and falls.
